Avid Pro Tools | S6 M40 16 Fader Control Surface (Used)

This used Avid S6 M40 16-Fader Control Surface is in near-perfect condition, showing little signs of use. This console came to us from a client's working studio and was very well taken care of. Save money by purchasing a pre-owned console and get the peace of mind knowing it has been fully tested and approved by RSPE Audio.

Avid’s groundbreaking S6 M40 modular control surfaces bring scalability and functionality to a new plateau. Another first from Avid, the S6 is the product of a collaboration that combines the experience and expertise of Avid and Euphonix engineers, equally renowned for the creation of world-class audio systems and industry firsts. But more important than the pedigree of its designers, the features and functionality of Avid’s S6 M40 are driven by the needs and requests of audio professionals.

From intelligent control via integrated touchscreen, to extensive visual feedback, including meters and waveform display of each channel, The Avid S6 is the world’s first control surface that lets you customize the surface to match your current and growing needs.



RSPE Audio Solutions’ exclusive Avid S6 Configurator lets you design a virtual Avid S6 M10 or Avid S6 M40 recording console/control surface, or select from stock Avid S6 M10 or S6 M40 DAW controllers.

Avid S6 Unique Features:

  • World’s first modular system that can be easily user-configured on-site
  • Highly cost-effective design lets you add modules and functionality as needs or budget determine
  • Comes in two versions: preconfigured mid-size M10; custom-configurable mid-size to large-format M40
  • Ergonomic design provides ability to reach more controls without leaving the sweet spot and feels like a physical extension of Pro Tools
  • Customer-driven features include thoughtful conveniences such as computer keypad and script trays that slide along the entire length of the M40 frame
  • High-resolution OLED displays provide detailed channel information, such as 10-character track names, automation modes, record indicator, and more, with higher contrast in low ambient light conditions than LCD screens

Avid S6 M10 and S6 M40

Like its predecessors, the Avid D-Command and D-Control, The S6 comes in two flavors. Analogous to the D-Command, you have the smaller, more affordable M10, and the Avid S6 M40, which takes the place of D-Control and Euphonix System 5 MC.

With Avid’s S6 modular control surfaces, you can select from various pre-configured S6 M10 systems, while the S6 M40 can be custom-configured to your specific requirements in not only fader count, but also number of knobs per channel, plus the addition of visual displays. And upgrading your S6 M40 doesn’t mean buying a new console; you can add various control modules any time you desire without the need for on-site technicians. It’s as close to plug-and-play, or shall we say, plug-and-mix as you can get. In fact, just like the portability of Avid’s Pro Tools software from studio to studio, you can actually bring S6 modules to another S6-equipped facility, plug them in, and mix or track the way you’re accustomed to. Only the Avid S6 M40 allows this kind of scalability and flexibility.

Avid S6 M10 and S6 M40 key features:

  • Customize the surface with only the modules you need for great cost efficiency
  • Scale the system from mid- to large-format to match your workflow, with room to grow
  • Mix faster and easier with intelligently designed controls, touchscreen, and intuitive layout
  • Access and manipulate multiple aspects of your mix through the master touchscreen
  • See your mix in a whole new way with detailed visual feedback and professional metering
  • Get the deep, integrated Pro Tools® mixing control only Avid can provide
  • Extend your control to Logic Pro, Nuendo, and other EUCONTM-enabled DAWs
  • Experience highly responsive, precision control with high-speed EUCON connectivity
  • Control up to eight audio workstations simultaneously (e.g. Pro Tools, Nuendo and Logic—even from across the facility

Avid S6 features in depth

A collaborative effort of Avid and Euphonix engineers, driven by input from audio professionals, S6 offers total scalability from being able to configure number of faders and rotary encoders per channel to the addition of meter/waveform displays. Plus, there are user-requested features you won’t find in any other control surfaces, such as sliding computer keypad tray and script tray that move along the entire length of the desk.

Revolutionary modular design

The words “future proof” have been used in pro audio since N.E.D.’s Synclavier was introduced in 1981. So far, instead of the promised 10 years, future proofing has lasted six months to a year at the outside—that is, until the arrival of Avid’s S6 modular consoles. How does Avid do it? By creating an Ethernet-based power frame that allows you to add modules at any time as your needs or workflow changes.

And here’s where it gets interesting; these scalable modules are not just fader packs. There are six modules that comprise the S6 including: Fader Module, Process Module, Knob Module, Display Module (M40 only), Master Touch Module, and Master Automation Module.

On the S6 M40, you can add stunning visual display modules, as well as more control knobs per channel bank (or less should you desire). For example, you can have 8-channel banks with five knobs to control panning and 4-band EQ right alongside fader banks with nine knobs to add dynamics control to EQ and panning. Or, you could have channel banks with one encoder knob if, for example, you wanted to create dedicated aux or submaster channels. And of course, down the road, you could convert those single-knob and five-knob channels into full 9-knob channels depending on the depth of the S6 frame you’ve selected. (More on frames later.)

The horizontal and vertical scalability of the S6 offers you the greatest cost efficiency by letting you start out with only what you need and no more. You don’t invest in unnecessary bells and whistles or take designer’s potluck; hoping they thought of everything you need, or accept trade-offs if they didn’t. Avid didn’t design the S6 to try to be all things to all people—just all things to one person: you.

Mix intuitively with superior ergonomics

To create the perfect blend of knobs, faders, switches, and touchscreen, Avid engaged in extensive ergonomic research and tapped the expertise of Euphonix engineers who’ve excelled in this area with their System 5 designs.

That said, in long mixing sessions, you need to quickly access controls and see and reach what you need to without “wheel chair races” across the length of your console. S6 addresses these issues by bringing faders and encoders closer to the center section of the console. And for D-Command users who couldn’t reach the top row of controls without climbing over the console, S6’s narrower depth will come as a welcome relief. Quite simply, with an S6 you reach more and move less.

Carrying the idea of ergonomically intuitive access forward, the S6 acts and feels like a physical extension of your software, providing a truly intuitive and immersive experience. Turn around projects faster with high-precision editing and mixing control within easy reach. Quickly access and edit plug-ins, surround panning, and more with the multipoint touchscreen, and see every detail of your mix with unprecedented visual feedback. And along with the ability to stay in the sweet spot longer, the S6 frame comes with a comfortable elbow-supporting bolster and physical topology that doesn’t obstruct the sound field.

The control surface engines—master modules

S6 Master Touch Module (MTM)

This is the real brains of the outfit and is required for all S6 control surfaces. The S6 MTM is a tilting, multi-touch display with eight assignable encoders. It has dedicated navigation buttons, two full-color soft key sections, and monitor section. There are two versions of the MTM: the S6 M10, which can control 10 modules, and its smarter brother S6 M40, which can control 41 modules. (Well, it’s not really smarter, just more powerful.)

The MTM features a 12.1", multi-touch screen that lets you view up to 72 tracks at once in the tracks matrix view, all with colors and meters. And with the swipe of a finger you can scroll vertically through the track matrix to access the rest of your session. You can record-arm, mute, or solo tracks easily via touch. There’s also an “attention” mode that takes you to an exploded view of a selected track. At the top of the exploded track view is a high-resolution meter bridge that you can horizontally scroll through via finger swipe, bringing any bank of eight channels right to you for processing directly via the screen. Touching a meter “attentions the track. Or you can similarly scroll an 8-channel-wide matrix at the bottom of the screen (similar to the track matrix view with just a single row).

With the ability to view, access, and edit various aspects of your mix, including tracks, panning, processing, and metering, without “mouse Olympics” or “sub-menu races,” the S6 Master Touch Module gives you absolute power (yes, you can be the swordmaster of your audio universe).

Speaking of universal domination, there’s a Universal Color Bar above the bottom-screen track matrix that allows you to navigate much larger sections to find the track you want and edit its parameters.

S6 Master Automation Module

While this module is optional (c’mon, you know you want one), the Master Automation Module provides two more soft key sections, bringing the number of soft key sections to four—another way S6 keeps you in the moment rather than searching through menus. It sports a jog/multi-function wheel, focus channel fader with OLED display, transport section, and numeric keypad. It also has a dedicated OLED time code display in the upper right hand corner.

When combined with the Master Touch Module, you have a very powerful master section that is only one foot wide, providing lots of accessible control via touch screen and combined 60 function buttons of the Master Touch and Automation modules.

Avid S6—channel modules

As long as we’re talking modules, lets discuss the remaining four. The channel modules provide the control and feedback elements you need—from faders and knobs, to processing and metering. All channel modules feature reliable, high-speed Ethernet connectivity for easy set-up. With the exception of the TFT Display Module, they all have high-resolution OLED displays, which provide a deeper black background and brighter display than any type of LCD screen. OLED displays are perfect for environments with low ambient light, such as bat caves, man caves, and studio control rooms. Here are the modules you can choose:

S6 Fader Module

The Fader Modules have a bank of eight 100mm motorized faders featuring HQ brushless motors for smooth operation during subtle fader moves. These are the same faders as those used on System 5. To keep you apprised of current status, the OLED displays show full track names and current automation mode.

S6 Fader Module at a glance:
  • 8 HQ brushless motorized faders
  • 8 OLED displays for full track names and automation mode
  • Dual tri-color LED meters per channel (with gain reduction metering)
  • Mute, solo, and other switches with color LEDs
  • Control levels for eight simultaneous tracks
Alongside the faders are 32-segment meter displays that also show gain reduction, plus there’s an automation delta display (automation changes). There are 11 switches per channel, including mute, solo, and others, with color LEDs for easy identification. Beneath the faders, there is a row of full-color modifier keys and additional function keys that match the selected track color in Pro Tools.

S6 Process Module

The Process Module hosts assignable switches for knob-module processing and bus assignments, plus eight freely assignable, multi-color LED top-lit knobs. There are 22 function-select switches per channel with color LEDs for easy identification. This module lets you select process modes (EQ, dynamics, etc.) for the knob modules, allowing control of up to nine simultaneous encoder values. The Process Module also contains eight OLED displays for labels and other visual feedback.

S6 Process Module at a glance:
  • 8 multicolor LED top-lit knobs (one per channel)
  • 22 function-select switches per channel with color LEDs
  • 8 OLED displays for labels and visual feedback
  • Provides mode selectors for Knob Modules to control up to nine simultaneous encoder values

S6 Knob Module

As mentioned above, the Knob Module comprises 32 multi-color LED top-lit encoders (4 per channel) and works in conjunction with the Process Module. With control of 32 simultaneous encoder values, these knobs control EQ, dymanics, and other assignable parameters.

S6 Knob Module at a glance:
  • 32 multicolor LED top-lit knobs (four per channel)
  • 32 OLED displays for labels and visual feedback
  • 11 function-select switches per channel with color LEDs
  • Works in conjunction with the Process Module
  • Control up to 32 simultaneous encoder values; stack two Knob Modules (S6 M40-based surfaces only) to get up to nine knobs per channel
The Knob Module also features 32 easy-to-read OLED displays that clearly show encoder function, position, and values. There are also 11 additional function-select buttons per channel. Two knob modules can be stacked for up to nine knobs per channel (M40 only).

Frames, Ethernet, and power supply

What holds it all together is the S6 power frame, which comprises a number of 1-foot wide chassis that attach together to hold the S6 control surface modules. Each chassis has its own power supply and wiring harness to provide Ethernet and power to each module fitted in the chassis. The chassis comes in two depths: a 4-module version including display module, and 5-module version included the display module (M40 only).

The Ethernet switches (differently sized depending on number of modules) are also housed internally in the frame. Once you’ve selected the number of chassis you want (from 2 to 9), bolster, back-, and side-panels are added to the frame, which can then sit on a desktop. For frames that are five, six, seven, or nine chassis wide, a leg assembly option is available for a freestanding console.

The IO-H features the industry-standard 5/8-inch mounting thread and an optional 3/8-inch BSW adaptor for universal compatibility.

Just as you would with a mic clip, screw the IPO-R to the threaded portion of your conventional mic stand or boom. Then use the supplied hex wrench to securely lock the IPO-R in place. A cam applies pressure internally to tighten the threads. Your mic IO-R stand’s threads are not stripped or damaged in any way.

The IO-H hex head is threaded to the device you wish to attach or remove, e.g. boom arm, mic adapter, iOrbit Tablet and Smartphone Mount, which then fits into the IO-R coupler.

Triad-Orbit Retrofit Components

T-O Retrofit Aftermarket Components provide compatibility between conventional mic stands, boom arms, and mic clips equipped with traditional 5/8" threads and Triad-Orbit Advanced Microphone Stand System components. Equipping traditional mic stands and boom arms with IO-R Quick-Change Couplers and Micro-R Orbital Mic Adaptors provides an exponential upgrade in functionality.

Micro M1-R Retrofit Orbital Mic Adaptor

Micro M1-R is the retrofittable version of the O2 Dual-Arm Orbital Booms with Micro M1 Orbital Mic Adaptor. Exhibiting the same extended range-of-motion, M1-R Mic Adaptors feature a long stem ball-swivel mounting arm to accommodate the hanging of large diaphragm studio microphones with spider-style shock-mounts. The patent-pending Glide Path ball swivel housing facilitates both full orbital rotation and a conventional straight-line trajectory for on-axis use. Equipped with industry standard 5/8" threads, M1-R Mic Adaptors significantly boost the versatility and accuracy of any microphone stand.

Micro M2-R Retrofit Orbital Mic Adaptor

Micro M2-R Orbital Mic Adaptors feature a short stem-mounting arm designed for smaller microphones, such as small-diaphragm pencil condensers and hand-held dynamics. The exclusive Triad-Orbit Compass Point ball swivel housing solidly secures mics in any mounting position.

M2-R Mic Adaptors are the perfect interface between traditional mic stands and add-on accessories like iPad mounts, music desks, etc. The added range-of-motion and secure lockout positions earn M2-R Adaptors a slot in every performer’s gig bag.

All Triad-Orbit Advanced Microphone Stand System components are IO-equipped, giving them unique quick-change capability. Rapid hardware and mic changes between recording sessions and live sets are a snap, thanks to the integrated IO quick-change platform. Triad T1 short, T2 standard, and T3 tall Articulating Mic Stands; Orbit 1 and Orbit 2 Orbital Booms; and M1 and M2 Orbital Mic Adaptors all incorporate the Triad-Orbit-Micro IO innovation.

Triad-Orbit IO-R/6 Retrofit Quick-Change Coupler Six Packs provide a cost-effective means to add quick-change functionality to your current mic stand inventory. IO-R Quick-Change Couplers easily pay for themselves with reduced set-up and teardown times. For more information, call or chat with an RSPE representative.

Triad-Orbit OA - Orbit Arm / OA Orbital Boom with IO Quick‑Change Coupler Triad-Orbit OA - Orbit Arm / OA Orbital Boom with IO Quick‑Change Coupler

Triad-Orbit OA - Orbit Arm

Innovative mic-stand boom with swivel mechanism, quick-change couplers, and industrial-grade clutches

The Triad-Orbit Orbit OA is a single freestanding version of a single Orbit 2-type orbital boom arm. Orbit OA lets you not only set up mics with piece of mind, but also lets you find the right “piece of air” to place it in. To achieve precise microphone placement, the Orbit OA Orbital Arm features a stainless-steel ball-swivel mechanism—perfect for twisting and tweaking mics to resolve phase issues without losing that special piece of air where all the frequencies come together and resonate. The Orbit OA Orbital Arm is equally adept at static mic placement via its Glide Path™ swivel housing, which provides a controlled, traditional boom arm motion—and thanks to industrial grade hardware machined to the highest tolerances, the Orbit OA Single-Arm Orbital Boom does it all with smooth, quiet, and stable operation.

Orbit OA Orbit Arm unique features:

  • Stainless-steel ball-swivel mechanism
  • IO Quick-Change Couplers for rapid hardware changes
  • Industrial-grade clutches secure all points of adjustment
  • Comfortable ergonomic clutch grip yields more torque

Orbit OA Orbit Arm key features:

  • Range of Motion: 360° x 230°
  • Weight: 1.4 lbs

As anyone who’s ever placed a microphone knows, it takes a lot of effort to get the mic in the right place, especially when you have to fight the unwieldy mechanics of the stand. (That’s why jazz recording master Rudy Van Gelder would scream at anyone (including Herbie Hancock) who even breathed too close to one of his mics, let alone touch it. There’s nothing more frustrating than laboring to coax a mic into position while people are standing around tapping their feet (and not to music).

If you’ve ever set up a symphonic scoring session, the sheer number of mics and amount of finagling to get spot mics in place can cost quite a bit of money in session time, as well is impatient artists, who can easily lose the muse if they’re kept waiting around too long. The versatile design and smoothly operating, precision mechanics of Triad-Orbit stands can reduce your setup time by at least 25%. Most importantly, with Triad-Orbit stands, not only do your mics swivel into place easily and stay put, you also have a simple, foolproof way to hang expensive mics without accidents or errors that come with outdated mic stand technology.

Orbit OA stainless-steel ball swivel

ORBIT Booms employ a stainless-steel ball swivel mechanism to deliver an unparalleled range of motion that’s extremely smooth, quiet, and stable. The Orbit swivel housings exhibit 360º of horizontal rotation. Add to that the 360º x 190º rotational axis of the ball swivel mechanism and you have the most precise and versatile microphone boom arm ever made.

Orbit OA IO Quick-Change Couplers

Swapping out mics in an effort to get the sound you’re looking for is very time-consuming and poses a threat to the safety of your mics. Worse yet, you don’t want clients thinking you’re wasting time while the clock is ticking away their dollars. Beyond that, artists lose patience and inspiration while you spend too much time spinning mic clips and booms. The Triad-Orbit OA Orbital Boom’s exclusive IO Quick-Change Coupler effortlessly captures mics with ease and assurance. On-the-fly hardware swaps are now a reality, replacing the tedious task of threading booms and mic clips on and off.

Orbit OA industrial-grade clutches

Making sure your mic stand shaft and boom adjustments are tight is often an exercise in sore fingers tightening small knobs that are often insufficient to keep things in place. The Triad OA Boom uses professional-grade clutches instead of knobs and thumbscrews to adjust and secure shafts and bases. Coated, knurled metal clutch barrels provide a comfortable ergonomic grip that yields more torque for a tighter lock so you don’t have to worry about drooping mics.

If you’re an experienced engineer, just one encounter with a Triad-Orbit stand is all it takes to realize they are the solution to all the mic placement problems you thought you had to live with. And if you’re just starting out, why not start out right? Outfit your studio with Triad-Orbit 01 Single-Arm Boom Stand and Triad T1 short, T2 standard, and T3 tall stands and watch your miking problems disappear into the past.

Combine an Orbit OA Orbital Arm with Triad mic stands and let mic placement become a creative endeavor instead of an exercise in stand manipulation. For more information, call or chat with an RSPE representative today.

Triad-Orbit TM microphone stands solve the problems of mic placement with a number of innovations:

Triad-Orbit TM articulating base

The Triad-Orbit TM’s proprietary articulating base provides the weight and stability of large-diameter cast iron bases and a fully adjustable attitude and footprint, thanks to its patent-pending ratcheting mechanism.

Adjusting the height of the articulating legs affects the floor clearance and footprint of Triad Stands. The Triad-Orbit articulating base is designed to accommodate “boom-less” front lines, uneven surfaces, and stacking for storage. The cutaway base allows the Triad TM to be closely grouped in positions not possible with conventional stands.

Triad-Orbit TM professional-grade clutch

Making sure your mic stand shaft and boom adjustments are tight is often an exercise in sore fingers tightening small knobs that are often insufficient to keep things in place. The Triad TM uses professional-grade clutches instead of knobs and thumbscrews to adjust and secure shafts and bases.

As anyone who’s ever placed a microphone knows, it takes a lot of effort to get the mic in the right place, especially when you have to fight the unwieldy mechanics of the stand. (That’s why jazz recording master Rudy Van Gelder would scream at anyone (including Herbie Hancock) who even breathed too close to one of his mics, let alone touch it. There’s nothing more frustrating than laboring to coax a mic into position while people are standing around tapping their feet (and not to music).

If you’ve ever set up a symphonic scoring session, the sheer number of mics and amount of finagling to get spot mics in place can cost quite a bit of money in session time, as well is impatient artists, who can easily lose the muse if they’re kept waiting around too long. The versatile design and smoothly operating, precision mechanics of Triad-Orbit stands can reduce your setup time by at least 25%. Most importantly, with Triad-Orbit stands, not only do your mics swivel into place easily and stay put, you also have a simple, foolproof way to hang expensive mics without accidents or errors that come with outdated mic stand technology.

Triad-Orbit T1 microphone stands solve the problems of mic placement with a number of innovations:

Triad-Orbit T1 articulating base

The Triad-Orbit T1’s proprietary articulating base provides the weight and stability of large-diameter cast iron bases and a fully adjustable attitude and footprint, thanks to its patent-pending ratcheting mechanism. Each leg of a Triad T1 base has four ratcheted positions that provide up to 65º of pitch. A foot-actuated latch on each leg provides hands-free adjustability. Adjusting the height of the articulating legs affects the floor clearance and footprint of Triad Stands. The Triad-Orbit articulating base is designed to accommodate “boom-less” front lines, uneven surfaces, and stacking for storage. The cutaway base allows the Triad T1 to be closely grouped in positions not possible with conventional stands.

Triad-Orbit T1 professional-grade clutch

Making sure your mic stand shaft and boom adjustments are tight is often an exercise in sore fingers tightening small knobs that are often insufficient to keep things in place. The Triad T1 uses professional-grade clutches instead of knobs and thumbscrews to adjust and secure shafts and bases. Coated, knurled metal clutch barrels provide a comfortable ergonomic grip that yields more torque for a tighter lock, so you don’t have to worry about drooping mics.

Triad-Orbit T1 Quick-Change Coupler

Swapping out mics and booms in an effort to get the sound you’re looking for is very time-consuming and poses a threat to the safety of your mics. Worse still, you don’t want clients thinking you’re wasting their time while the clock is ticking away dollars. Beyond that, artists lose patience and inspiration while you spend time spinning mic clips. The Triad-Orbit T1 short mic stand’s exclusive IO Quick-Change Coupler effortlessly captures booms and mics with ease and assurance. On-the-fly hardware swaps are now a reality, replacing the tedious task of threading booms and mic clips on and off.

If you’re an experienced engineer, just one encounter with a Triad-Orbit stand is all it takes to realize they are the solution to all the mic placement problems you thought you had to live with. And if you’re just starting out, why not start out right? Outfit your studio with Triad-Orbit T1 short, T2 standard, and T3 tall stands and watch your miking problems disappear into the past.

A new industry standard is born; Triad-Orbit T1 Short Microphone Stand is nothing less than a revelation in studio miking. Once you’ve used a Triad-Orbit stand, all the old familiar mic-placement problems will fade into a distant memory. For more information, call or chat with an RSPE representative today.

Orbit 2 / O2 Dual-Arm Orbital Boom

Innovative dual-arm orbital boom with swivel mechanism, quick-change couplers, and industrial-grade clutches makes on-the-fly mic swaps a reality

Why use the Orbit O2 Dual-Arm Orbital Boom? Multi-mic schemes are rife with problems; such as frequencies combining in different locations to create phase-coherency issues; numerous mic stands combining to form a metal forest; and overlapping mic stand bases making placement around drum kits or other spot mics difficult. The Orbit O2 Dual Orbital Boom not only simplifies and streamlines multi-mic setups, it helps you achieve and maintain perfect mic placement. Orbit O2 Orbital Booms feature a unique dual-arm design. Each arm is equipped with Orbit’s proprietary Compass Point™ stainless steel, ball-swivel housing, which allows precise and stable mic positioning in a spherical range of motion. Along with freeing up resources when multiple mics are the order of the day, Orbit 2 / O2 Dual Orbital Booms also offer a clean setup—which is a plus onstage for visibility, or in the studio where too many stands in limited space become the victim of happy feet. Whether you’re recording in stereo or dual-mono, the Orbit O2 Dual-Arm Orbital Boom will become your go-to stand.

Orbit O2 Dual-Arm Orbital Boom unique features:

  • Dual boom arms with novel center swivel that provides an additional 145º left/right motion
  • Compass Point stainless-steel, ball-swivel mic-placement mechanism
  • IO Quick-Change Couplers for rapid hardware changes
  • Industrial-grade clutches tightly secure all points of adjustment
  • Comfortable ergonomic clutch grip yields more torque

Dual boom arms are only part of the Orbit 2 story. Orbit O2 Dual-Arm Booms are anchored via a unique center swivel that on top of the 360 ball-swivel mechanism, provides an additional 145° of left-right motion to the boom arms. Orbit 2’s proprietary Compass Point ball-swivel housing provides each O2 boom arm with precise, stable positioning whenever the arms are engaged. The O2 arms are terminated with IO Quick-Change Couplers, offering twice the versatility of conventional booms—allowing setup in a fraction of the time it takes for normal miking chores.

Orbit 2 Dual Orbital Booms feature a unique dual-arm design. Each arm is equipped with the proprietary, Orbit ball-swivel mic-movement mechanism, making it the perfect stand for stereo or dual-miking assignments such as grand pianos, drum-kit overheads, snare-drum top and bottom, guitar and vocals, choirs, big bands, and orchestras. By doing the work of two stands Orbit 2 Booms free up resources when multiple mics are called for and space is limited. Combining Orbit Booms with Micro Mic Adaptors [Link] creates an advanced microphone placement system yielding unequalled accuracy and adjustability.

Orbit O2 stainless-steel ball swivel

ORBIT Booms employ a stainless-steel ball swivel mechanism to deliver an unparalleled range of motion that’s extremely smooth, quiet, and stable. The Orbit swivel housings exhibit 360º of horizontal rotation. Add to that the 360º x 190º rotational axis of the ball swivel mechanism and you have the most precise and versatile microphone boom arm ever made.

TRIAD-Orbit T3 Tall Tripod Microphone Stand

The Triad T3 is a tall mic stand with three-section shaft and air-suspension system to protect expensive studio microphones

Why use a Triad Orbit T3 Tall Tripod Mic Stand: If you’re tired of holding your breath while you, a second engineer, or your most trusted intern puts up that vintage AKG C12, Neumann U-47, or Brauner VM1-KHE—all the while hoping you won’t have to find yourself explaining to Klaus Heyne what happened to your “preciousss,” or how much the repair will set you back (not to mention lost session time)—that’s reason enough. The Triad-Orbit T3 Tall Microphone Stand takes the worry out of putting up your best mics with several industry-leading features. First and foremost, the TRIAD T3 Tall Mic Stand features an air-suspension system to protect expensive studio microphones against accidental impact damage. The Triad-Orbit T3 also has an articulating base; quick-change coupler for fast and safe attachment or removal of mics or booms; and precision-machined clutches to secure shafts and bases without slippage.

The Triad-Orbit T3 Tall Microphone Stand takes the worry out of putting up your best mics with several industry-leading features. First and foremost, the Triad T3 features an air suspension system to protect expensive studio microphones against accidental impact damage. The two lower tubes of the Triad T3 are fitted with an air-suspension system that assists when raising or lowering microphones. The upward resistance of the air-suspension system will protect the microphone from dropping too quickly in the event that a shaft clutch is absent-mindedly loosened without a hand holding the mic shaft.

Starbird started Meletron Corporation in Los Angeles in 1939 and designed the Model 180 studio boom stand for large broadcast environments in the 1940s. Soon recording studios discovered its unrivaled reach, range of motion and stability and adopted it as the large mic stand of choice. Eventually Meletron stooped making the Starbird stand and Manley Laboratories, Inc., celebrated maker of professional studio and hifi audio equipment, purchased the tooling and trademark for the Model 180 in 1991 and produced an updated version of the Starbird in their California facility until 2010. Now in its third iteration, Starbird by Triad-Orbit (T-O SB-1) incorporates patented T-O innovation to impart new levels of performance, versatility and stability to the storied Model 180 platform. Most importantly, All Triad-Orbit Starbird stand base, boom swivel and clutch components retrofit to legacy Starbird stands.
