Expensive but very good!
SkyStudio, 06.10.2019
Mixing with this controller is amazing. Writing automations just the way you want them is priceless! Being able to see 16 tracks at once is genius. I haven’t begun to get into all the features but it was easy to setup and is already enhancing my workflow immediately without having learned every thing this thing can do! Avid has a great set of videos by the way that explain everything.

Superbe Controleur
Albert SOURIS, 25.05.2020
Très belle intégration avec Logic Pro X. Très agréable à travailler, mais prévoirdu temps a l'appréhender au niveau des possibilités. Les ES sont en AVB donc aucun intérêt excepté si vous avez le réseau et switch AVB ... Pourquoi ne pas l'étendre au protocole Dante ce qui en ferait une console parfaitement intégrable dans un studio moderne avec toute la souplesse d'un Dante Contrôleur.

Pas mal
Henry4442, 26.05.2017
Une qualité correcte, manque de sensibilité sur certain rotatif, service Avid injoingnable .
Ca fait le boulot, le rapport qualité prix est correct, il n'y a pas vraiment de concurrence, donc ils font comme ils veulent .

Bonne console
ukuma, 27.02.2019
Utilisation en production musicale et post-production depuis 2 ans.
Faders très bonne courses , très bonne reactivité de la console , rotatif pas tous identiques mais ça marche bien dans l'ensemble. Je suis pas fan de l'ergonomie pour la prod/post-production ils auraient pu faire un peu mieux dans ce sens pour le prix (le produit est orienté assez live il me semble..). Après tout roule impeccable avec le Protools , très rares plantages. Petit Bemol: pas possible d'utiliser l'interface de la S3 avec un mac pro: protocole AVB non pris en charge dommage.
