Avid’s live sound mixing software gets major update


Avid has announced the availability of its Venue 7.2 software update. The latest advancements in VENUE 7.2 allow more routing capabilities for the S6L mixing console, allowing through command of a live mix at scale.

Users can now patch any input source from anywhere on the VENUE | S6L platform or connected network – to any input channel, with fully automatic delay compensation, which Avid says allows engineers unlimited patching flexibility.

The routing capabilities in VENUE 7.2 include input channels that can be routed directly from six different pickoff points across top of channel, true gain, pre-EQ, insert return, pre-fader post-mute, and post fader.

In addition, users also have direct access to any physical source on the VENUE | S6L platform, such as stage and local inputs, and sources from any MADI-192 or MILAN-192 option card.

“The routing flexibility offered in the latest VENUE software update is pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in patching, making the S6L the obvious mixing console choice in live sound,” said Francois Quereuil, cice president, Product Management for Audio and Music Solutions at Avid.

“Usually, we do a post insert direct out from the FOH channel, via a plug-in, back into the Surround channel so you automatically get all the processing on both channels. Now we can do this more elegantly without the wasted plug-in slot,” added sound designer Gareth Owen, referring to the new update.
