Default Top Features of Avid S1 Control Surface

Long time Artist Mix user here, and I know the 2 surfaces are similar in a lot of functionality. However not looking to make this a comparison BTW, just we have an S1 on its way for our studio...

That said, keen to know what are the top features of the S1 that y'all like?

Default Re: Top Features of Avid S1 Control Surface

I'm biased but here's some features:
8 Track Color track LEDs that double as Softkeys
Red and Green Automation LEDs
Control App Meters screen like S6
Larger better buttons(subjective)
Color LED Function buttons
Multi Master Spill (needs 2 x S1 or more)
Narrower than the Mix, better for adding more faders

Thanks Eddie, that is a cool list for me to go through when my S1 arrives this week.

Can I ask what Multi Master Spill is please?

Multi Master Spill:

Put your tracks into VCA Groups or Folders. These will then display on one S1 and can be spilled out onto the other S1's.
