Avid Pro Tools S3

Small Format, Big Mix
Get a streamlined yet versatile mixing system for the modern sound engineer. Based on the award-winning Pro Tools | S6 control surface, Pro Tools | S3 delivers intelligent control over every aspect of Pro Tools and other DAWs. All in a more portable and affordable surface. But don’t let its small size fool you. While it’s ideal for space-confined and on-the-go mixing, it packs enormous power to handle large sessions and turn around projects faster. Plus, you can pair it with Pro Tools | Dock and the Pro Tools | Control app to extend your workflow further.

Get Full Hands On Control
Gain better control over your mix whether you’re making music or sweetening soundtracks. Interact with 16 touch-sensitive, motorized faders to bring more life to your mix. Record-enable tracks right from the surface. Solo, select, and mute channels. Change automation modes. Navigate projects using the touch strip transport controls. And keep an eye on your levels with the built-in meters.

Access Every Aspect Of Your Mix
View, access, and adjust multiple facets of your music or soundtrack project quickly using the 32 touch-sensitive, push-button style rotary encoders. Use the top-row channel control encoders to make changes to inputs, inserts, sends, groups, and more. Use the second row of assignable channel encoders separately to control plug-ins, pan, EQ, compressor, and other parameters. And view names, settings, status, channel metering, and more through the 32 OLED displays.

Plug In And Record
No need to use a separate audio interface to record and monitor sessions. Pro Tools | S3 features a built-in 4-input, 6-output AVB Core Audio interface to connect your studio (Mac only). Record vocals and instrument performances through two high-quality XLR mic/line inputs and two TRS line inputs. And connect studio speakers, headphones, and other gear to four line outputs and one stereo headphone output.

Features:

  • Take Complete Control Of Your Studio - Experience the deep and versatile DAW control only Avid can deliver. With its intelligent, ergonomic design and EUCON support, S3 puts tightly integrated recording, editing, and mixing control at your fingertips. Work smarter and faster - with your choice of apps - to expand your mixing capabilities and job opportunities. And because S3 is application-aware, you can switch between different DAWs in seconds. Plus, its compact footprint fits easily into any space, giving you full reign of the "sweet spot."
  • Work Smarter And Faster - S3 combines a traditional console layout with the advancements of Pro Tools | S6, ensuring intuitive operation, regardless of your experience level. From interacting with tracks and editing plug-ins, to writing automation, you get the tactile control you need to create better mixes faster. With much more precision than working with a keyboard and mouse. Plus, when paired with Pro Tools | Dock and the Pro Tools | Control app, you can accelerate your efficiency even more.
  • Experience Exceptional Integration And Ergonomics - No other surface offers the level of DAW integration and versatility that Avid control surfaces provide, and S3 is no different. Its intuitive controls feel like an extension of your software, enabling you to mix with comfort, ease, and speed. Plus, you’ll get plenty of rich visual feedback to inform and guide you towards creating that perfect mix.
  • Create Your Mix, Your Way - With EUCON technology at its core, not only can you mix sessions using Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, and other DAWs, you can also customize the surface for your task at hand. Create up to 12 custom mixer layouts and recall them to the surface at any time. It’s ideal for mixing drums, vocals, dialog, sound effects, and other groupings. Plus, you can switch between applications with ease, giving you the choice to work with what you want. And the capability to take on any project that comes your way.
  • Set Up A Studio In Any Size Space - Whether you’re at home, tucked in a small suite, or on the go, S3’s compact size, power, and extensive DAW control put you in the driver’s seat of your studio. Wherever you want it to be. What’s more, S3 features a built-in 4x6 interface, enabling you to record, mix, and monitor sessions with just the surface and your laptop (Mac only). Or monitor audio using S3 standalone. No additional audio interface required.
  • Use The Same Technology Pros Trust - S3 delivers incredible workflow acceleration, highly responsive handling, and deep DAW integration. All of it built on proven technology, trusted by top audio professionals in the most demanding production environments. The result: you get the exceptional, dynamic performance you need to deliver the best sounding mix possible—on time, every time.
