Avid S6 Configurator by Qvest MediaCustomise your S6 console in four steps

Avid S6® is a modular, ergonomically designed control surface for Avid Pro Tools® and EUCON-compatible
digital audio workstations (DAWs). S6 uses the EUCON Ethernet protocol to provide fast, reliable data transmission. S6 is flexible and scalable. Modules can be arranged in many ways, and can be added to address new workflows or increase the number of strips.

S6 is tightly integrated with all EUCON-compatible DAWs, providing access to many key commands, menu items, and controls. The Master Module and Automation Module each have editable Soft Keys that offer single-switch access to automation, editing, session management, and other commands.

S6 provides substantial visual feedback to let you quickly identify tracks and their functions. Each strip inherits its color from the audio application (if assigned), and module controls light in different colors for each function. Display Modules can display high-resolution, multichannel colored meters, waveforms, automation data, and functions.

Avid S6 modules

S6 systems can include various types of modules. Additional accessories like keyboards and further control elements are also available from third party suppliers.

  • Master Module – This is the central hub for S6 operations. It uses a touchscreen and other controls to let you select, mute, solo, enable record and input, and edit track functions. All S6 configurations must have one Master Module. The Master Module displays the Home, Tracks, Monitoring, and Settings Screens, and provides knobs, switches, and a touchscreen that let you configure and manage your system, navigate through your session’s tracks, and perform many recording, monitoring, routing, and mixing tasks
  • Automation Module – This module includes Transport Controls, Jog/Shuttle Wheel, Attention Track Fader, and other controls
  • Fader Module – Each of its eight strips has a motorized fader, meter, mute, solo, automation and other switches, an Attention key, and a display
