The Unprecedented Power of VENUE!
Revolutionize your live sound with Avid's VENUE SC48! This system combines the second-to-none sound quality and road-ready reliability of Avid's renowned VENUE systems into a single console with built-in I/O, so it's both the most affordable and the most portable Avid VENUE system ever. The VENUE SC48 boasts Pro Tools plug-in support plus 100% seamless integration with Pro Tools LE. In all, you've got 48 mic/line XLR inputs, 16 line outputs (with an expansion slot for future growth), and the unprecedented workflow prowess of Avid VENUE: it's all inside the Avid VENUE SC48.
Gives you the power of VENUE in a portable, all-in-one system
Setting a new standard for sound quality, size efficiency, and price, VENUE SC48 packs all I/O, digital signal processing, and mixing control into a single compact console. The fully integrated system enables you to travel light and bring the unprecedented sound quality and creativity of VENUE to any event, or easily replace an analog console by simply dropping SC48 right into the existing cabling system. With its versatility and small footprint, you can connect stage mics and other inputs and outputs directly to the console. You can also integrate Pro Tools LE recording and playback for Virtual Soundcheck and show archiving, control all software functions remotely over a wired or wireless Ethernet device, and mix front-of-house and monitors using studio-quality processing. It's an unbelievably efficient and powerful centerpiece to your professional audio system.
Amazing sound quality with full plug-in support
Don't let its small size fool you. SC48 is a powerful performer, letting you create and deliver everything from simple to complex mixes in stunning sound quality. Its studio-grade microphone preamplifiers preserve audio fidelity and imaging for complete transparency, while built-in processing - including high-quality graphic EQ and dynamics - optimize clarity. And with support for professional plug-ins built right into the console, you can easily re-create and instantly recall an artist's signature studio sound live onstage. You'll have an enormous number and breadth of sound processing choices available at your fingertips.
Seamless Pro Tools integration
SC48 features a built-in Pro Tools FireWire interface, making it easy to connect a computer (sold separately) running Pro Tools software (included with SC48) to record and archive live performances or for audio playback. With VENUE and Pro Tools, you can also perform Virtual Soundcheck - a time saving process that lets you play tracks recorded from a previous live performance, and fine-tune your mix settings before an actual show or rehearsal. You can do that all without requiring the band or performers to be there.
Powerful workflow innovations
SC48 introduces several new features - some of which you'll only find from Avid - to optimize your workflow. Using the exclusive Channel Control, a single button press gives you immediate access and control over any channel strip function, including input parameters, EQ and dynamics, and Aux sends, using the console's eight color-coded rotary encoders. Use the unique Flex Channel in latch mode to assign and gain perpetual access to a key channel, and never lose sight of the star of the show. Take advantage of VCA Spill, which gives you unprecedented access to specific channels within your mix without banking. And maximize your efficiency using the console's General Purpose Interface (GPI) I/O and D-Show software to create custom macros, enabling you to perform multiple functions by simply pressing a button, stomping a footswitch, or moving a fader.
The identical VENUE software platform
All VENUE systems operate under one common software platform - VENUE D-Show software. D-Show software sets new standards in operational efficiency and workflow, giving you instant access to and full control over any function of the system. Just a simple button push on the console or click from the screen gives you access to inputs, outputs, filing operations, snapshots, the digital patch bay, plug-ins, and user options. And because all VENUE systems share this same software platform, engineers only need to learn it once to mix on any VENUE system, big or small, and can create and load show files for use on any VENUE system.
