Avid recently introduced the Digidesign Venue SC48, a new fully integrated audio and processing live sound solution for small- to mid-sized houses of worship, clubs, touring and corporate AV applications. Touted as a cost-effective solution, the compact system is compatible with industry standard professional AV systems, and combines I/O, digital signal processing, and tactile control, with built-in support for several pro audio plug-ins.

"We realize our customers have different requirements," said Tex Schenkkan, Avid's vice president and general manager for audio, in a statement. "With the Venue SC48, we've been able to advance our Venue platform to meet the specific needs of customers in smaller to mid-sized applications, at an aggressive price point"

The SC48 delivers the same sound quality and clarity as the rest of the series, but in a compact footprint designed to meet the needs of customers with smaller or mid-sized venues, according to the company. The console introduces new features intended to enhance and streamline the mixing processes, including:

Professional plug-in support, enabling users to install and use software plug-ins from Digidesign and third-party developers so they can re-create and recall an artist's signature studio sound during a "live" performance.

Direct connection to Pro Tools LE, which simplifies recording shows and performing virtual sound checks, a process that allows customers to play back and mix tracks recorded from a previous performance using a computer connected via the Venue SC48's built-in USB port.

Channel control, for access, display, and adjustment to channel parameters by clicking a button. Any eight parameters can be assigned to the color-coded framework for immediate access during the mix.

Center flex channel, for immediate access to any key input, such as a lead vocalist's microphone, without going through fader layers.

"Our services often change on the fly, and the size, flexibility, and layout of SC48 enables me to work more quickly to address things in the mixes that were never before possible," said Eric Kibbe, audio manager and mixer of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., in a prepared statement.

The Venue SC48 is currently available. For pricing information, contact your local Avid salesperson or reseller.
