Avid VENUE | Function Pad


Trigger snapshots and events from anywhere

Whether you’re mixing on a concert tour, in a club or theater, at a festival, in a house of worship, or for a live event, the Avid VENUE | S6L live sound system makes it easy to perform complex tasks and change multiple settings instantly through its function switches. And now with the free VENUE | Function Pad iOS app, you can trigger S6L function switch-assigned snapshots and events from anywhere in the venue using your iPhone or iPad.


  • Remotely control S6L functions
    Operating on the same Wi-Fi network as your S6L system, the VENUE | Function Pad app puts wireless remote control of your S6L’s function switches at your fingertips. Quickly and easily organize, view, and trigger up to 128 custom actions, snapshots, and events instantly—whether you’re at FOH, monitors, on stage, or anywhere in between.
  • Achieve better mixes faster
    VENUE | Function Pad effectively surfaces more of your system’s available function switches across its intuitive interface, enabling you to navigate to and trigger actions faster and more easily than using S6L on its own. It not only helps you get your mix exactly where you need it to be, the moment you need it, it enables you to focus more on the creative aspects of mixing—not on the technical hurdles.
  • Gain easy operation and insight
    VENUE | Function Pad displays all available function switch assignments in a grid of tiles that can be customized for easier navigation and operation. Simply tap a tile to trigger the assigned snapshot or event. Tap the channel range tabs at the bottom of the screen to view more banks of functions. You can even color-code tiles, making them easier to identify and visually group to speed your mixing workflow.
  • Empower live collaboration
    You can connect multiple iOS devices running the VENUE | Function Pad app to a single S6L system simultaneously to support a variety of FOH, monitor, and collaborative live production workflows. For example, it can be used to trigger Pro Tools recording and playback, theater cues, and other events. It can also be run in parallel with the free VENUE | On-Stage app, making it an ideal companion at every show.
