Avid Pro Tools | S6 M40 Modular Control Surface

The result of professional user feedback, the Avid S6 M40 is a highly scalable and configurable modular control surface with unique master touch screen control and extensive visual feedback that gives you unprecedented control of Pro Tools without ever leaving your sweet spot    

While the Digidesign ICON was a milestone in its day for hands-on control of Pro Tools software, over the years as workflow, production values, and budgets changed to accommodate the current state of the industry, the ICON presented shortcomings that professionals needed to have addressed. Some of the issues were the wide center section putting faders out of reach, the inability to configure multi-user systems for video post, limited visual feedback (a sea of green LEDs), and ineffective metering. Another request was in regard to the relatively poor feel of the faders and mushroom-top rotary encoders. The Avid S6 not only addresses all these (and more) user issues and requests, starting with great-feeling precision faders and knobs, it goes far beyond in its ability to streamline workflow and accommodate not just the physical needs of engineers and production facilities, but the shrinking budgets that currently plague our industry. Here is just a partial view of what the remarkable S6 can do for you:
