The definitive, all-in-one live sound console
Amazing sound quality, performance, reliability, and price. The Avid® SC48 is the definitive, all-in-one live sound solution, combining all
I/O, digital signal processing, and tactile control into one compact console, along with support for professional audio plug-ins and built-in
Pro Tools LE® integration. It also introduces groundbreaking workflows that greatly increase your efficiency, allowing you to concentrate on
what really matters most—the mix.

With its all-in-one design, SC48 enables you to travel light and bring the unrivaled
sound quality and creativity of Avid live sound to any event. Or easily replace an analog
console by dropping SC48 right into an existing cabling system. And because all Avid
live sound systems operate under easy-to-use VENUE software, simply learn it once
and you can mix on any Avid live system and move show files from system to system—
no matter the configuration.
Amazing Sound Quality
SC48 delivers stunning sound quality and clarity thanks to its studio-grade mic
preamps and built-in processing, including high-quality graphic EQ and dynamics.
And with support for professional plug-ins built right into the console, you can easily
re-create an artist’s signature studio sound live—no other console at this price
point provides you with the sheer number and breadth of sound processing choices
Seamless Pro Tools Integration
SC48 features a built-in Pro Tools FireWire interface, making it easy to connect
a computer (sold separately) running Pro Tools software (included) for live show
recording. You can also perform Virtual Soundcheck—a timesaving process that lets
you play tracks recorded from a previous performance in place of the live mic/line
inputs and fine-tune the mix before a show without requiring the performers’ presence.
Powerful Workflow Innovations
SC48 offers innovative features to optimize your workflow. With the exclusive
Channel Control, a single button press gives you immediate access to any channel
strip function, including input parameters, EQ, dynamics, and Aux sends, through
the console’s eight color-coded rotary encoders. Use Flex Channel to assign and
gain perpetual access to a key channel. Take advantage of VCA Spill, which provides
unprecedented access to channels without banking. And with the 999-snapshot
capability, you can quickly make complex changes with the press of a button.
Room for Expansion
SC48 features a single output expansion slot, enabling you to easily install one
additional output option card to meet your interface needs. Expand your total analog
output count to 32 with an AO16 Analog Output Card. Add 8 digital AES and
8 analog outputs with an XO16 Output Card. Or supply A-Net connectivity for
Aviom Pro16 Series devices with an AT16 A-Net Output Card.
