AVID S6 Neve DFC Integration

1. Hybrid Console Integration System

We’ve adapted an 8, 16 or 24 fader Neve DFC basket to accept the Avid S6 modules, providing seamless control between console surfaces that greatly improves the mix environment’s aesthetics and ergonomics.

Avid S6 Module Enclosure

2. Avid S6 Module Enclosure

Allows for any S6 modules to be removed from the console surface and placed on a desktop, providing more space for faders or new modules.

3. Mouse & Keyboard Platform

Our modification to the Neve DFC bumpers offers a platform that can support a mouse, keyboard, tablet or notebook. It can be positioned anywhere along the console.

Accessory platform

4. Accessory Shelf

Clips over the meter bridge of the Neve DFC to provide a level platform for any hardware to sit on.

5. Custom Desk Extensions

We can create extended work areas in a range of finishes to continue the profile of any make of console utilising the same leg design for a seamless appearance. Desks can also house basic cable management systems, outboard gear, studio tie-lines and KVM receiver units.

6. Screen Slider

A sliding mechanism bolts to the Neve DFC or 88RS main chassis providing flexible positioning of screens from the mix position.  A removable cover hides the sliding mechanism and cable trunk. The screen arms can be unlocked, swivelled and discretely hidden behind the meter bridge when not in use.

Other Console Enhancements

Static Screen Mount

An enclosure fixes to existing holes on the Neve 88R to allow a screen to be positioned anywhere the screen arm reach will allow.
