The M40 version of the S6 audio console deployed in the premises of Bayerischer Rundfunk features numerous configuration options. Below, we fitted a five-knob-per-channel configuration, each with four process fader modules, process modules, knob modules and display modules. In the middle is the automation module with a jog and the master module with a touch monitor device.
We then performed an initial test run for the latter. In order for BR to operate their audio post-production smoothly later on, we then checked the module – everything worked perfectly fine. Altogether, we installed four fader modules. Of course, in the fader test, we checked the controllers for their functionality as well.
All tests were successful. During sound post-production, Bayerischer Rundfunk is now easily able to manage the Avid Pro | Tools via the operating interface. The individual settings – such as the fader groups – were saved in the respective projects. The option of writing automation on several tracks simultaneously also simplifies the workflow. In order to meet the broadcaster’s varying configuration requirements, the S6 consoles can also be configured later on.
At the end of the process, the two Avid S6 M40 user interfaces have now found their way into the BR recording studios B and C.
