Re: Avid will announce new DSP product(s) next week!

Very strange that they chose AVB while MTRX is Dante..

No surround monitoring is a shame. I guess they want to push post users towards MTRX.

Hoping the DSP chips aren't the 10 year old HDX...

Yes, they'll work perfectly fine. No, they won't feel or sound particularly great.

The argument that they have been used in other control surfaces isn't a particularly good one, we all know they...

Re: Bounce to Quicktime Movie File Crashes Pro Tools in 2020.3

Re: S3 vs Two S1's

I'm also in the camp of potentially switching to the S1.

So at this point the opinions are 50/50 (if I can count correctly)

Re: S3 vs Two S1's

It are exactly the same components. So it makes for a very enticing choice compared to the S3, which I own but always thought was overpriced for the rather low quality faders and buttons it has....

Re: Can I replace faders myself?

It's very easy to replace or clean the faders yourself. Just open the back with a screwdriver and pop out the faders.

Be sure to first try and clean them. As sometimes it's just dirt stuck on the...

I'm just expressing my opinion, as this product is marketed towards business like my own. A small post production company, with 2 new...

Also, business decisions are very often made to reduce costs.

Lower cost = more profit.

Re: Avid S1 & S4

I didn't buy one because of my own business decisions :)

Another drastic cost cutting measure compared to the cheaper M10, if that’s true.

Eddie, can we agree that for those of us who are not interested...

Re: so no possibility to use more s3s but what about the S1

Apart from the top row of encoders (which I don't use very often) I see 2xS1 as a replacement of the S3. It is also a lot cheaper!

You're not forced to use the ipads so you can hang your large...

The S1 looks really good!

I'm also finally seeing the EQ curve on the dock, which has been long overdue!

Re: Avid S1 & S4

Because they have killed off the M10 which was a superior product.
Making the S4 now the cheapest option, only big no-go is the cheap faders.

As soon as the stock of M10's dries out, the only...

Re: S6 M10 replaced by S4

Thanks for the info Eddie,

Most mixers I know find the faders the most important aspect of the S6.
Those ALPS faders of the s3 don’t belong on a piece of equipment with that pricetag, in my...

Re: Avid HDX card not being recognized

Did you buy the card from an Irish reseller on ebay?

Then you bought yourself a defective card and AVID will not fix it.

Re: Avid S1 & S4

The s6 faders are indeed amazing, and for me the major reason to want to buy one. But now Avid have made that impossible by shifting the premium faders to the m40 only.

Re: Avid S1 & S4

Yeah I get that. But it isn’t really fair to call the s4 a budget-conscious more affordable option. When what you are actually doing is making the cost of entry to s6 a lot more expensive, by killing...

S6 M10 replaced by S4

Hi Eddie (or others at AVID)

At first I was very excited to see a scaled down version of the S6 for the, as you market it, budget-conscious studios and customers.

But after seeing the pricing...

Re: Avid S1 & S4

How on earth can a “budget s6” cost more than a s6 m10-8-5?

For the cheaper s3 style faders 10-15k would have been a more sensible starting point.


Edit:

S4 8 fader: 24000
S6 8 fader: 22000
