Avid S3 Control Surface for Pro Tools offers a small footprint and deep control for a better mix.

Based on the award-winning Avid S6 control surface, Avid S3 delivers intelligent control over every aspect of Pro Tools and other DAWs.

Work smarter and faster
S3 combines a traditional console layout with the advancements of Avid S6, ensuring intuitive operation, regardless of your experience level. From interacting with tracks and editing plugins, to writing automation, you get the tactile control you need to create better mixes faster – with considerably more precision than working with a keyboard and mouse.

Navigate sessions more easily
When using S3 with Pro Tools, the surface now fully supports ICON-favorite “Scroll to Track” and “Scroll into View” features, making it easy to scroll Pro Tools windows and bank your control surface accordingly to get to the tracks you need faster. And with the latest EUCON software, you can open and close Pro Tools Folder Tracks right from the surface, greatly speeding up session navigation.

Create your mix, your way
With EUCON technology at its core, not only can you mix sessions using Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, and other DAWs, you can also customise the surface for your task at hand. Create up to 12 custom mixer layouts and recall them to the surface at any time. It’s ideal for mixing drums, vocals, dialog, sound effects, and other groupings. Plus, you can switch between applications with ease, giving you the choice to work with what you want. And the capability to take on any project that comes your way.
