Avid’s reputation in the professional audio world is well known and their new S1 slimline control surface will appeal to a wider range of audio workflows and budgets. Together with their free Avid Control app for iPad or Android tablets, the S1 borrows features from its high-end consoles and bigger S6 sibling. Avid’s S1 provides hands-on control for a variety of audio and video software through any EUCON compatible software.
Taking the place of Avid’s famed Artist Mix control surface, users shouldn’t assume the S1 is a simple update on its predecessor, quite the opposite in fact. This new slimline control surface opens up new worlds of streamlined workflow, control, DAW integration and now being tri-platform, opens up to a multitude of other uses aside from just iOS iPad owners, Android tablet and Amazon Fire users rejoice.
Designed for lightning-fast workflow, boasting high-end features (many of which trickle down from Avid’s ultra-high-end S6 console) and seamless integration with your system and setup, the new S1 is the next generation of control surface, in a delightfully compact package, offering superb quality and at a very affordable price for what’s on board.
