S4 offers more compact S6 workflow

The S4 is built to integrate with any EUCON-enabled DAW

The Avid S4 is a new audio control surface designed for independent music mixers as well as smaller audio postproduction and music facilities. A semi-modular console, the S4 includes the DAW integration and visual feedback of the Avid S6, along with a more streamlined and compact control surface aimed at the budget conscious.

Avid’s high-speed Ethernet control protocol, EUCON, allows the S4 to connect and communicate with first- and third-party audio, video and monitoring applications. Acting as a physical extension, the S4 is built to integrate with any EUCON-enabled DAW, such as Pro Tools, Nuendo, Pyramix, Logic Pro and Cubase, among other audio software. Engineers are able to assign and control talkback, listenback, and speaker sources and levels from the surface to manage everything from cue mixes for music recording to monitoring immersive audio projects.

In other news, Media Composer 2019 has debuted to allow editors to go from first cut to delivery without leaving the application. Features include new controls for Media Composer | Enterprise administrators to configure Media Composer’s UI and secure media with lockdown capabilities based on a user’s role; bulk edit, which allows users to speed up applying text in a bin column to multiple clips at a time; and an improved interoperability workflow for exchanging sequences between Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro.

Avid has also redesigned its MediaCentral platform and launched Media Central | Publisher, a new SaaS offering powered by Wildmoka, which allows media producers to create content, add graphics and branding, and publish news and sports videos to multiple social media and digital endpoints to help boost viewership and drive revenue.

FastServe has received an update and is now available in three smaller-footprint configurations. FastServe | Ingest, Live Edit and Playout are tightly integrated with Avid NEXIS and MediaCentral, and reportedly accelerate ingest, editing and playout workflows while supporting higher channel counts and a lower overall cost per channel.

Speaking of NEXIS, Avid has debuted NEXIS | Cloudspaces, which reportedly takes the stress out of media management by extending NEXIS storage to the cloud. Using the same NEXIS Management Console, users can activate NEXIS | Cloudspaces to free up local space and provide news, sports and postproduction teams with an easy way to store media in the cloud.

Finally, for users working in high track-count environments, such as audio postproduction, Pro Tools | Ultimate reportedly delivers 50% more voices/audio tracks than previous versions. Pro Tools | Ultimate software and HD Native customers can further increase the number of available voices up to 768 per system – on par with a three-card Pro Tools | HDX system – with the addition of Pro Tools | Ultimate Voice Packs.
