Avid S6L Waves SoundGrid Integration Now Available

Avid and Cutting Edge announce Waves SoundGrid integration is now available for VENUE | S6L, delivering the most comprehensive integration of Waves SoundGrid plug-ins found in any audio console.


The new Avid VENUE 5.7 software update and WSG-HD Option Card for Avid VENUE | S6L deliver key functionality not offered by other third-party live systems. From show file compatibility, mapped encoders, multi-touch control, and automatic delay compensation, to auto-failover redundancy and safety features, the Avid and Waves teams didn’t stop working until all of the requirements were achieved. These features are supported as part of the VENUE 5.7 software release for VENUE | S6L, and greatly expand the creative toolset for all live sound engineers.

VENUE 5.7 is available to download at no charge for all customers with an S6L system.

Here’s an overview of what the new S6L Waves SoundGrid integration delivers:

  • Unmatched Waves plug-in integration and control from S6L’s arsenal of knobs and from within the VENUE software itself
  • Expanded connectivity and reliability with support for the new Avid Waves SoundGrid WSG-HD Option Card for the E6L Engine, including support for auto-failover redundancy when using two SoundGrid servers
  • More processing power with the ability to connect a Waves SoundGrid Server One or Extreme Server to run up to 128 voices of Waves Plug-Ins, with up to 1024 Waves SoundGrid plug-ins
  • Simplified setup and show file import with no external laptop required for setup, automatic delay compensation, and automatic conversion of legacy VENUE show files with Waves plug-ins—with all TDM instances of Waves plug-ins automatically converted to SoundGrid, including settings and routing
