Introducing the Avid S3L System


Get the performance, sound quality, and features that countless live sound professionals have come to rely on in a system architecture that’s built for the future. Available now at GC Pro, the modular S3L System is comprised of a high-performance HDX-powered processing engine running AAX plug-ins, scalable remote I/O that can live on stage or in a rack, award-winning VENUE and Pro Tools® software, and a head-turning compact control surface that’s built for the road, but equally at home in the studio. A fault-tolerant Gigabit Ethernet network connects all devices and uses the open Ethernet AVB and EUCON™ standards for maximum performance and flexibility.

For unmatched Pro Tools integration, simply connect your laptop (with Pro Tools or other DAW installed) to the system’s Ethernet AVB network (using a single Cat5e cable) for up to 64 tracks of audio recording/playback. VENUE Link makes it easy to control your live mixing and recording/playback setups as one. What’s more, with EUCON functionality coming soon, you’ll be able to use the control surface to mix Pro Tools and other DAW sessions, making the system the ultimate solution for both stage and studio. Your GC Pro representative will be glad to answer any S3L questions you may have... contact us at 877-687-5404!
