World-Class mixing for smaller studios - Avid S4

AVID S4

World-class mixing for smaller studios

Get the mixing power of industry-standard Avid S6 in a more compact control surface for budget-conscious pros and smaller audio post and music facilities. Avid S4 boosts your mixing efficiency with the same award-winning workflows in a more streamlined, semi-modular surface that provides intelligent DAW control. Whether creating music, designing sound, mixing immersive audio, or teaching audio production, S4 is the perfect fit for any project.

TAKE COMMAND OF MULTIPLE DAWS

S4 is built with EUCONTM technology, giving you deep, unmatched DAW integration to access and control Pro Tools®, Nuendo, Logic Pro, and other audio and video software right from its touchscreen and surface—even two different applications simultaneously.
