Scrub, a division of HHB Communications Ltd. specialising in serving the post production industry, has supplied ENVY Post Production with the first Avid S6 control surface in Central London.
Scrub installed and configured the S6 in a new audio suite in Envy’s second building in Rathbone Place, Soho, where it will be used for the quick turnaround of film trailers, VOD, high-production online content and more. The S6 is a fully customisable and modular system that provides ENVY with the option to select the individual modules as needed and tailor the console configuration to suit their workflow. ENVY has chosen an 8-fader M10 S6 with Pro Tools HDX and version 11 software. Additional Knob, Process and Automation modules were selected for deep, hands on control of Pro Tools, while the included Master Touch Module provides multipoint touchscreen control of multiple DAW functions.
ENVY Dubbing Mixer Rich Martin is very impressed with the intuitive tactile control and comprehensive features that S6 provides in a compact format.Â He comments: “The S6 is an extremely powerful console with a very smooth workflow. We first saw the S6 at Scrub’s Soho preview event and immediately knew that it would be perfect for our new audio suites, and the ability to select the individual modules to match our needs was a major selling point. Scrub was very helpful throughout the installation process and helped us configure it onsite in an arrangement that matches the workflow of our engineers.”
Head of Scrub Sales Ben Scully explains: “ENVY are one of the biggest Avid ICON users in Soho, so it is no surprise that they are the first adopters of the S6 system. The S6 can be custom configured in a variety of layouts and built up over time as the user’s needs increase.Â Our customers have found S6 to be an extremely flexible and powerful system with the tools to suit any workflow.”
The S6 is available from HHB and Scrub in an array of pre-configured M10 and M40 formats, or as a bespoke M40 system with up to 64 faders. Offering the best of industry leading ICON and System 5 families, S6 can control up to eight EUCON-enabled DAWs simultaneously from anywhere on a facility’s network. This is in addition to extensive visual feedback and superior ergonomics that make the S6 an extremely intuitive and responsive mixing console.
Customers are invited to arrange an appointment to view the full features of the S6 with HHB and Scrub’s knowledgeable Avid specialists in its 5.1-equipped facility in Soho, London.¨
