The S2 mixer was manufactured by Allen & Heath but not sold or marketed by us. We manufactured it on behalf of Thatched Cottage Audio, a distributor in South-East England (now defunct). Consequently we do not have brochures or price-lists for this console. S2 was an 8-buss in-line studio recording mixer with MIDI Mute Automation.

Many of the features developed for the S2 were later incorporated into the GS3.
