OpenBox S6 PRO HD
Customize your surface
Get intelligent touch control
See your mix in whole new ways
Work with what you want
Design the perfect mixing surface for your workflow. S6 is fully modular, enabling you to build your own system with an accompaniment of Fader, Knob, Process, and Display Modules. Add optional modules for surround and post mixing. Personalize it further with a variety of accessories, from keyboard and script trays to speaker mounts. And because it can be scaled horizontally and vertically, you can configure the surface with the modules you need now to fit your budget, with room to expand in the future as your needs grow. Working in a smaller room? Check out Avid S4, which provides all the power of S6 in a smaller surface.
The Master Touch Module serves as the engine of your entire surface and central hub of operation. With its 12.1-inch tilting multipoint touchscreen, knobs, and other controls, you can quickly access and control different aspects of your mix and system. Navigate and edit tracks and plugins fast. Select, mute, solo, and record-enable channels. View metering and parameter statuses. Get extensive monitoring and routing control to handle the biggest, most complex mixes, including Dolby Atmos. Perform multistep tasks instantly with customizable soft keys. And much more.
Stay on top of your mix with one or more Display Modules, which provide extensive and unique visual feedback. Not only can you view multiple channel meters, track names, routing, groups, and other information, but also insightful data that will elevate your mixing experience. View high-resolution scrolling Pro Tools waveforms, which you can edit right from the surface. Display track automation data, gain reduction metering, EQ curves, and more. And with the latest EUCON software, you can now turn the display into a Master Meter Module, so you can keep your Master and Bus meters visible at all times.
You have a lot of choices when it comes to the tools you use to create music, sound for picture, or videos. So why not use a control surface that respects the choices you make? S6 does. That’s because it features EUCON, a high-speed Ethernet-based technology that enables the hardware to communicate directly with any EUCON-enabled application—and vice-versa. And because it’s application-aware, you can switch from a Pro Tools project to Logic Pro, Nuendo, and other audio software in seconds.
