Avid S3 Control Surface #EAEEW72100088D (Used)

Compact, sixteen-channel, EUCON-enabled, ergonomic desktop control surface with a built-in audio interface that offers streamlined yet versatile recording and mixing

Product Description

The Avid S3 Control Surface is a compact, sixteen-channel, EUCON-enabled, ergonomic desktop control surface with a built-in audio interface that offers a streamlined yet versatile recording and mixing solution for the modern sound engineer. It delivers intelligent control over every aspect of Pro Tools and other popular software such as Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Media Composer, Reason, Cubase, and more.

While the S3's small form factor makes it ideal for space-confined or on-the-go music and post mixing, it packs in enough power and accelerated mixing efficiency for faster turnarounds in project studios or large facilities alike.

The S3 puts tightly integrated recording, editing, and mixing control at your fingertips. Its core functionality revolves around sixteen channel strips, each with a touch-sensitive motorized 100mm fader, two touch-sensitive rotary encoder, two high-resolution OLED display, and dedicated function keys for solo, mute, record enable, select, and more.

If your system is Mac-based, there is no need to use a separate audio interface to record and monitor sessions. The S3 features a built-in 4-input, 6-output AVB Core Audio interface that easily integrates with your studio. You can record vocals and instrument performances through two high-quality XLR mic/line inputs and two 1/4" TRS line inputs. Connect studio speakers, headphones, and other gear to four line outputs and one stereo headphone output.


  • The S3 offers a traditional console layout, ensuring highly intuitive operation regardless of your experience level.
  • From interacting with tracks and editing plug-ins, to writing automation, you get the tactile control you need to create better mixes faster (with much more precision than working with a keyboard and mouse).
  • Because the S3 is application-aware, you can control multiple workstations and seamlessly switch between different DAW sessions in seconds.
  • Create up to 12 custom mixer layouts and recall them to the surface at any time, ideal for mixing drums, vocals, dialog, sound effects, and other groupings.
  • The unit is also compatible with Mackie Control/HUI.
  • 16 channel strips, each with a 100mm touch-sensitive, motorized fader and 10-segment signal-level meter
  • 32 touch-sensitive, push-button rotary encoders for panning, gain control, plug-in parameter adjustments, and more (16 channel control, 16 assignable), each with a tricolor LED function indicator.
  • Solo, mute, channel select, and record/automation-enable keys on every channel.
  • Touch strip provides easy access to transport controls.
  • Dozens of dedicated buttons and switches for navigation, automation, control assignment, and software control.
  • Extend your mixing capabilities by pairing the S3 with Avid Dock and/or the free Avid Control app (both available separately) on a mobile device to gain full monitor-control capabilities, touchscreen workflows, and customizable soft keys, transport control, a shuttle/jog wheel, focus fader, and more.
  • 32 high-resolution OLED displays enable you to clearly view track names/numbers, detailed metering data (from mono to 5.1 surround), parameter names/values, current automation mode, and more. This visual feedback gives you deep insight into your mix to make better-informed creative decisions.
  • When using the S3 with Pro Tools, the surface fully supports ICON-favorite Scroll to Track and Scroll into View features, making it easy to scroll through Pro Tools windows and banks, using your control surface accordingly to get to the tracks you need faster.
  • The built-in 4x6 AVB Core Audio interface features two balanced mic/line inputs, two balanced line inputs, four balanced line outputs for connecting studio monitors, and a stereo headphone output.
  • This allows you to record, mix, and monitor sessions using just the surface and a laptop.
  • Audio can be monitored using the control surface in standalone mode with no additional audio interface required.

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.
Phil T.
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.
