There's nothing like leaning over and simply dragging a fader on a screen without having to use an input device like a mouse. You are the input device. The screen is multi-touch which means you can control more than one parameters at a time. You can therefore use both hands on the screen controlling 2 completely different faders at once. It's exactly what you want from a DAW controller. It may take a week or so to re train your brain but when it clicks there's no going back.
In the past decade, the technological revolution has transformed audio into a medium that is produced and delivered in the digital domain. Powerful Digital Audio Workstations have transferred the entire recording studio into a virtual environment where all elements of the studio appear conveniently on a computer screen. But what has been lacking with the modern digital studio, is the same powerful workflow as what was accomplished on tactile mixing consoles. So back in 2012, Slate Media Technology came up with a solution. If the entire production studio was on a computer screen, why not turn the actual computer screen INTO a world class control surface? And the RAVEN series of Multi-Touch consoles was born. Soon the RAVEN would be the preferred control surfaces of major studios, engineers, producers, artists, and educational institutions like Mark Needham, Terry Lewis, Will.i.am, Jimmy Douglas, Full Sail University, and SAE.
The RAVEN MTi2 is a state of the art 27” Multi-Touch Production Console featuring a state of the art multi-touch panel and the powerful new RAVEN 3.0 Control Software. Using the RAVEN MTi2, users have access to multi-touch faders, pans, sends, and tweak plugins with their fingers as if they were real hardware. The RAVEN 3.0 Control Software also features a user-customizable multifunction TOOLBAR and the award winning BATCH COMMAND SYSTEM, a powerful automated task application that will save audio engineers hours per day by cutting out tedious technical tasks.
With the introduction of RAVEN 3.0, we have taken the already game-changing RAVEN software to a new level by adding compatibility with EVERY MAJOR DAW.
RAVEN 3.0 now adds customized multi-touch control of Ableton Live, Cubase/Nuendo, Digital Performer, Logic Pro X, Protools 10-12, and Studio One V3 on Mac as well as our first PC compatibility for Protools 10-12. The 3.0 update demonstrates exactly why the RAVEN is so groundbreaking: through real time interaction we have the ability to code our way to any fix or enhancement, and RAVEN has continued to evolve.
