The Most Powerful Processing Engine in the Industry

From Broadway to broadcast, live productions are more complex than ever, requiring hundreds of channels. That’s why Avid's VENUE E6L is a groundbreaking engine that uses two powerhouse technologies working together in concert.

The Avid VENUE E6L is a state-of-the-art real-time processing engine dedicated to handling all routing, channel, and mixing functions for maximum stability and power, while the HDX-powered DSP engine manages all AAX plug-in processing, with full automatic delay compensation. That means you can create bigger, better sounding mixes, with hundreds of processing channels and mix busses, while enjoying the tightest, most robust plug-in performance and lowest possible latency—and with no round trips to external servers.

Users can choose one of two Avid engine configurations, the E6L-144 and EGL-192 along with the following available options:

  • AVB-192 Ethernet AVB Network Card: Provides twoindependent Gigabit Ethernet ports, copper and Fiber (via SFP)
  • HDX-192 DSP Expansion Card: Provides additional processing power for running AAX DSP plug-ins; all engines come standard withone card, expandable to four
  • MADI-192 MADI Option Card: Provides birectional MADIover BNC connectors
  • TBT-192 Thunderbolt Option Card: Provides high-channel recording andplayback to and from a compatible Pro Tools system

NOTE: Expansion cards are sold separately. For additional specifications, please refer to the "Avid VENUE S6L Data Sheet" under the Documentation tab.

With its modular, scalable system architecture, you can freely mix and match your choice of control surface, engine, and I/O to support practically any live sound application. Choose from three control surface configurations to meet your needs, and select the ideal E6L engine to support your channel count requirements. Ramp up your plug-in processing power by adding more HDX cards to your engine (up to four). Users can go from a maximum 64 mic inputs with one Stage 64 rack up to hundreds of I/O channels by connecting additional boxes.
