New Avid control surface

Avid has added the Pro Tools | S3 to its suite of control surfaces for sound recording, mixing, and editing.

When used together, Avid Pro Tools | S3 and Pro Tools | Software – both part of the Avid Artist Suite of creative tools powered by the Avid MediaCentral Platform – deliver a streamlined, economical, and tightly integrated approach to mixing and recording in smaller-sized studios or mobile settings.

“In today’s competitive post and music mixing environment, shrinking budgets and tighter schedules are commonplace,” said Chris Gahagan, senior vice president of products and technology at Avid. “To succeed, audio professionals need to streamline and accelerate their workflow, as well as broaden the scope and capabilities of their mixing solutions to handle the most sophisticated projects. The affordable Pro Tools | S3 delivers the power, efficiency, and versatility engineers need to deliver fast turnarounds in the most demanding environments.”

Avid Pro Tools | S3 will be available November 2014 through Avid resellers worldwide.
