The power of VENUE—everywhere

Go from stage to studio and beyond. With VENUE | S3L-X, you get the incredible sound clarity, power, and efficiency of VENUE in an ultra compact system. But that’s not all. Archive shows directly to Pro Tools. Streamline FOH, monitor, and broadcast workflows by sharing the same I/O across multiple networked systems. You can even set up a mobile recording/mixing studio using just the control surface and Pro Tools on your laptop, making S3L-X the most versatile system in live sound.

From major festivals to small clubs, S3L-X gives you the power and flexibility to handle anything. Scale the modular, Ethernet AVB-networked system to accommodate any size performance—from 16–64 mic preamps. Easily fit the control surface into the tightest FOH spaces. And get great versatility, reliability, and value for the stage, studio, and beyond.

Mix anything, anywhere

It may be small, but it’s mighty. From major festivals to clubs with the tiniest FOH spaces, the compact S3L-X can handle even the most demanding live productions. Experience exceptional performance when handling plug-in-heavy mixes. Mix and record live shows with the utmost efficiency. And easily scale your system to accommodate any size production.

Achieve incredible sound—live

VENUE systems are respected for their sound quality. The clarity. The warmth. S3L-X is no different, offering professional-grade I/O, transparent preamps, and EQ and dynamics on all outputs. And with direct support for the same plug-ins used in top recording studios, you can easily re-create an artist’s signature studio sound live. And eliminate expensive outboard gear and cumbersome external plug-in “servers.”

Set up a mobile studio

You archive every live show. But what happens to the recordings? With S3L-X, you can use the S3 as a standalone control surface with your laptop to remix shows to share with fans or for future commercial release. Not just Pro Tools sessions, but projects created in Logic, Cubase, and other DAWs too. What’s more, you even record overdubs and more through the S3’s built-in 4x6 audio interface.

Reduce complexity and cost

Forget fussing with bulky analog splits. With S3L-X, you can share the same I/O across multiple networked systems—without any loss of audio quality. This alone can save you thousands by reducing I/O and cable requirements, set-up time, and transportation costs. Plus, True Gain technology automatically manages gain compensation to ensure the proper signal levels in each engineer’s mix.

Scale up without being weighed down

With S3L-X, you can easily scale the system to meet your needs. Go from 16 mic pres with one Stage 16 box up to 64 with four. Rack your I/O in one location for easy supervision, or place each box closer to sources throughout the venue—up to 328 feet (100 meters) away. And with Ethernet AVB connectivity, all you need are lightweight, inexpensive Cat5e cables, putting an end to expensive, bulky analog snakes.

Get quick ’n’ easy USB drive recording

Don’t need a full Pro Tools multitrack session? Get 2-track recording and playback by connecting a USB Flash drive to the E3 engine. Archive stereo recordings of your board mix. Organize playlists in VENUE software to play pre-show or walk-up music. You can even integrate audio files with VENUE snapshots and events to trigger spot effects, cues, and music beds for theater performances.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.

I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
