Avid Releases VENUEPack 4


Avid has announced VENUEPack 4, a new suite of professional plug-ins and utilities that will come bundled with all VENUE digital console systems, providing live sound engineers with more creative options than ever. From re-creations of popular vintage hardware to the latest studio processing effects, VENUEPack 4 includes 30 powerful plug-ins from Avid and third-party partners including Flux::, Focusrite, JOEMEEK, Line 6, and others.
VENUEPack 4 plug-ins run natively on all VENUE systems--no external plug-in runner or separate laptop required. Avid say that they offer high-quality sound, reliable performance, exceptionally low latency, automatic delay compensation support, and can be controlled right from the console surface.
Greg Kopchinski, Avid product manager, told us, "VENUE's integrated plug-in system eliminates the need for external outboard gear or plug-in runners, giving the user unprecedented creative choice. VENUEPack 4 provides a unified set of popular plug-ins for live sound, making it easier than ever for engineers to move between VENUE consoles and use the great-sounding, low-latency effects they've come to appreciate."
In addition to the suite of plug-ins, VENUEPack 4 also includes the Flux:: Pure Analyzer Essential software application, a modular RTA system that provides mix engineers with an extensive range of live audio analysis and measurement tools when installed on a Mac- or Windows-based laptop. Pure Analyzer can also utilize the Flux SampleGrabber plug-in to support direct signal acquisition across an Ethernet network from VENUE system monitor and mix busses.

  • Classic Compressors Bundle--Emulations of five coveted hardware processors (includes BF-2A, BF-3A, Purple Audio MC77, Fairchild 660, and Fairchild 670 plug-ins)
