TheAvid S1is a compact desktop control surface offering fast, intuitive, and expandable control of common mixing functions for popular software such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Media Composer, Reason, Cubase, and more. Not only does it provide great power in a compact form, but it can be scaled to suit your changing needs.
Use the S1 as your sole control surface, or integrate it with up to three other S1s, an Avid Dock, and an iPad or Android tablet running the free Avid Control app. The core functionality of the S1 revolves around eight channel strips, each with a touch-sensitive motorized 100mm fader, a touch-sensitive rotary encoder, a high-resolution OLED display, and dedicated function keys for solo, select, mute, record enable, and more. Fast access to inserts, aux sends, panning, group settings, and I/O assignments is available via a row of buttons directly above the OLED displays.
Accelerate Your Workflow with the S1 from soloing tracks, editing plug-ins, and routing signals to writing surround-panning automation and triggering macros, the S1 provides total hands-on access to your audio or video project, giving you greater speed and precision than mixing with a mouse and keyboard alone.
Connected iPad or Android tablet, you can get to where you need to go instantly. Jump to a track by selecting it in Tracks View, or swipe through multiple channels in Mix View and eliminate tedious software click-throughs and quickly navigate through large sessions.
Pro-Level Hands-On Control
From its motorized touch-sensitive faders and knobs, to support for VCA spill, monitor control, and custom layouts, the S1 goes far beyond what you can do with a MIDI-based controller. Plus, its customizable Soft Keys speed up tedious tasks, enabling you to trigger functions with a simple tap.
