TL;DR I’ve you’ve ever wanted to use Waves plug-ins with the Avid S3L, then I’ve got the video for you.
In the video I demonstrate four different ways of using Waves plug-ins with the Avid S3L. While running plug-ins directly on the console is not supported, these alternatives should be attractive alternatives to most sound engineers. I evaluate each configuration based on complexity, portability, latency, and cost.
The four methods are:
- Hardware Inserts
- Analog Fx Returns
- AVB Fx Returns
- SoundGrid Fx Returns
Please watch the video, and let me know in the video comments what you think, and what other kinds of videos you’d like to see.
P.S. You’re welcome to read the script I used in planning the video.
