S6L is the logical next step in the VENUE line of consoles with more power and
great touchscreen workflows. VENUE | S6L is at the top product in our portfolio and

mixing consoles. With multiple systems already back-ordered for our clients, we’ve
been overwhelmed by the reaction to S6L and we’re looking forward to many more
