Exclusive demonstration of the new Slate "RAVEN" touch screen controller
Slate Pro Audio RAVEN Consoles – Touch The Future!
Is there no end to the product innovations coming out of Slate Pro Audio these days? – Hot on the heels of the announcement of their AES 2012 ‘Best in Show’ RAVEN MTX comes the RAVEN MTi a 27-inch Touch Screen DAW Controller Console announced last week at NAMM 2013.
The RAVEN MTi retains the same groundbreaking technology inherent in the 46-inch RAVEN MTX condensed into a smaller footprint 27-inch ‘table-top’ design. Featuring a custom made NANO GLIDE surface. This ultra thin 2mm glass is coated with a proprietary Nano technology that makes the surface slick and smooth. This is the Rolls-Royce of touch screens. Nothing on the market comes close in terms of performance, feel, and build quality.
At the core of the RAVEN Consoles is The RAVEN MIXER – The Multi-Touch DAW control software that puts your DAW right at your fingertips. The large-format Multi-Touch mixer gives you complete access to faders, pans, mutes, solos, sends, automation, and even plug-in inserts. Given the on-screen real estate available your software plug-ins become the size of 19-inch 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 your audio.
The RAVEN Toolbar is anchored directly in front of your hands at the base of the touch screen display. Your DAW controls are right 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 NAV PAD to perform Scrub/Shuttle, Waveform Zoom, Track Zoom, and Track Banking. RAVEN’s Customizable Hot Keys open up the world of possibility for creating your own buttons for frequently used functions. Best of all, because the RAVEN Toolbar is virtual, it’s user-customisable – Put the controls exactly where you want them…
The monitoring sections of the RAVEN consoles are 100% digitally controlled analogue circuits. You’ll never have to worry about scratchy pots or noisy switches… ensuring that your monitoring path is as minimal possible. You’ll hear your audio with absolute purity. The sound you’ll hear is exactly as it is intended to be - clean, clear and articulate.
With both the best of future and the best of the past in mind, the RAVEN consoles have been conceived to build on the tradition of the classic recording environment. For anyone who’s ever used an analogue mixing console: Recording, Mixing or Mastering is instantly familiar, effortless and intuitive - What you touch is what you hear!
And did we mention “fast”? With a response time under 5ms, tons of multi-touch gesture controls, and the ability to reach out and grab your plug-ins with your fingertips - as soon as you’ve thought it, you’ve done it - The RAVEN Consoles remove all barriers between you and your DAW. Your creativity will be unhindered and your workflow will become more efficient and fluid.
But perhaps most importantly, the greatest feature of the Slate RAVEN Consoles is ‘affordability’ - designed and manufactured with the reality of the current economic climate in mind the RAVEN Consoles will be available at prices that won’t break the bank for most Audio Professionals.
The Slate RAVEN Consoles are set to become a new industry standard for working ‘In the Box’ on a DAW. MediaPros is convinced that the RAVEN series will have a massive impact on the way Audio Professionals work in the future – so much so that we will be hosting the European launch of the RAVEN MTX and MTi Touch Screen Consoles featuring Steven Slate himself at HALO Post-Production in Central London on Wednesday the 27th February at 6pm - for further information please contact the details listed below.
