Avid offers up much more than Pro Tools rigs, though. Recently, the S Series of control surfaces (S1, S3, S4, and S6) has drawn attention from mix engineers and broadcast production companies alike. Offering console-shaped systems that are totally digitally integrated has made for excellent workflow with Pro Tools-based systems. Mixing with as few or many faders as you need, as well as inserts and routing options, products like the S6 stand tall in the world of high-end studios. Add to that the fact that Avid’s interfaces offer fantastic A/D and D/A conversion, and it’s no wonder why the purple Avid logo is found in almost every control room.
