Slate Media Technology Raven MTX MKII Base - 46" Multi-Touch Control Surface

The Slate Media Technology Raven MTX MKII is a state-of-the-art touch screen display featuring the RAVEN MIXER - A powerful multi-touch mixer that can control all major DAWs - and a flexible and user-customizable, multifunction TOOLBAR. The RAVEN also incorporates a full-featured analog monitoring section designed for today's audio engineer, with multiple speaker outs and input sources, USB, multiple headphone send and cue options, and much more. But at the heart of the RAVEN MTX is the most important thing of all... your DAW, right at your fingertips.

When Slate began to develop the RAVEN concept, they studied the touch screen industry for months and became experts in the various technologies. They realised something very quickly: to make a multi-touch monitor suited for the pro audio industry, no "off-the-shelf" product would work; they were too slow, with thick, untreated glass and unusable parallax between your finger and the image. The screens themselves wouldn't look correct at the angle that we needed, the glass had a horrible friction to it, and there were no proper drivers to do real MAC and PC integration with professional DAWs. So Slate started from the beginning, and built the RAVEN touch display from the ground up, using brand new touchscreen technologies that were literally being introduced to the market as we were working. We build our own displays using commercial grade LED backlit screens and components from industry-standard display manufacturers. It's sharp, bright, and looks great at any angle. But one of the greatest achievements they made is in its custom made NANO GLIDE surface. This ultra thin 3mm glass is coated with a proprietary nano technology that makes the surface slick and smooth, even smoother than the famous touch tablet - and it allows you to work effortlessly. This is the Rolls Royce of touch screens. Nothing on the market comes close in terms of performance, feel, and build quality.

Raven 2.0
The RAVEN Multi-Touch DAW control software puts your DAW right at your fingertips. With the introduction of RAVEN 2.0, Slate have taken the already game-changing RAVEN software to a new level. RAVEN 2.0 demonstrates exactly why the RAVEN is so groundbreaking: through real time interaction they have the ability to code their way to any fix or enhancement, and RAVEN will only continue to evolve. A large-format multi-touch mixer gives you complete access to faders, pans, mutes, solos, sends, automation, and even plugin inserts. Of course on a 46" screen, plugins function as if you were tweaking 19" outboard gear - you can easily tweak the controls with your fingers. This is a world-first in DAW control. Having the DAW at your fingertips makes it easy to directly interact with the music.

The Raven Toolbar
The RAVEN Toolbar is anchored directly in front of your hands at the base of the touch display. Your DAW controls are where you want them: Transport, Edit/Mix window selector - convenient tools for tracking too, like Record Looping, Click, Create Group, and Undo. Use intuitive multi-touch gestures on the RAVEN NAVPAD to perform Scrub/Shuttle, Waveform Zoom, Track Zoom, and Track Banking, and RAVEN Batch Commands. Best of all, because the RAVEN Toolbar is virtual, it's user-customisable - put the controls you want where you want them.

Batch Command System
The RAVEN Batch Command System (BCS) is a true revolution in control. The BCS is a series of preset and customizable buttons that can execute up to 1,000 key commands and mouse clicks automatically. With just one button, the BCS allows you to create instant headphone sends, name tracks, put entire drum tracks on the grid, export stems and much more! The BCS comes pre-programmed with 96 pre-defined commands in 8 window sets. User commands are simple to program with our QUICKLIST, which features hundreds of predefined Pro Tools operations - just touch and hold a Batch Command button to edit, and you’ll have access to almost limitless possibilities with the preset Music and Post Production commands in our QUICKLIST.
