Avid Pro Tools | S6: Mixing Redefined (Part Three)

In the third part of this series, we take a look at the different engines and options available, as well as the launch of  Avid Pro Tools | S6 v2.

Engines and options

M40 V M10

Avid S6 M40 Engine

The engine you choose dictates the total number of modules you can include in your S6 and impacts its overall size and customisability. Choose the high-performance M40 for large-scale productions that require maximum channels, high-resolution metering screens, and customisability, or the more affordable M10 for productions that need to fit into smaller rooms and budgets.

Both feature a tilting 12.1-inch multipoint touchscreen, eight adjacent rotary encoders, and dedicated knobs and keys for monitoring and global control, enabling you to view, access, and edit different aspects of your mix – such as tracks, processing, and metering – without mousing through menus.

Surface accessories – ergonomic extras to personalise your desk
