Avid has announced a renewed agreement with SSE Audio to supply the UK’s major outdoor summer music festivals with Avid VENUE S6L live sound consoles, an upgrade to the previous Avid systems used.

SSE Audio has provided Avid’s live sound systems to the festivals included in the deal – Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Lovebox, Wireless, Download, Wilderness, The Ends Festival, Latitude, Reading and Leeds Festivals, MTV Presents Gibraltar Calling, Community and Isle of Wight Festival – since 2012. The festivals turned to SSE Audio to replace their consoles with the new Avid VENUE S6L-24C for complete show file portability between new and existing systems, allowing them to maintain all their mix settings, snapshots, channel/bus configurations, plugins and Patchbay assignments.

“The compatibility of Avid VENUE | S6L-24C with the legacy Avid systems was a priority across the board,” said Miles Hillyard, senior project manager at SSE Audio. “As the festivals up their game year-on-year, they need a scalable live sound system that evolves as they do. As well as enabling a smooth transition, the S6L-24C also provides advanced plugin control with seamless Pro Tools integration and support for the latest version of Waves plugins.”

“The S6L-24C’s unprecedented performance and reliability presents new opportunities to boost audio quality and workflows,” said Al McKinna, director, product management, live sound, Avid. “We’re excited to be continuing our long-term relationship with SSE Audio and to see the festivals use Avid VENUE S6L’s powerful capabilities to help bring artists’ performances to life.”

Avid is currently showcasing the newly expanded Avid VENUE S6L family at Prolight + Sound 2019, and will do the same at the NAB Show 2019 in Las Vegas, April 8-11.
