The Multitouch Display
Slate Media Technology started from the beginning, and built the RAVEN touch display from the ground up, using innovative touchscreen technologies that were literally being introduced to the market as the RAVEN was being developed. Slate Media Technology builds their displays using commercial-grade LED backlit screens and components from industry-standard display manufacturers. The screen is sharp, bright, and looks great at any angle. But one of the greatest achievements is by far the custom-made NANO GLIDE surface. This ultra-thin 2 mm glass is coated with a proprietary nano technology that makes the surface slick and smooth, and it allows you to work effortlessly.
The Raven Multitouch DAW control software puts your DAW right at your fingertips. RAVEN 2.0 demonstrates exactly why the RAVEN is so groundbreaking: through real time interaction, Slate Media Technology has the ability to code their way to any fix or enhancement, and RAVEN will only continue to evolve. A large-format multitouch mixer gives you complete access to faders, pans, mutes, solos, sends, automation, and even plug-in inserts. Of course on a 46 screen, plug-ins 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
In Toolbar mode, 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-customizable + put the controls you want where you want them.
The RAVEN 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, BCS allows you to create instant headphone sends, name tracks, put entire drum tracks on the grid, export stems, and so 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 ProTools operations – just touch and hold on 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.
FADERS 2.0 brings the virtual mixing environment into the real world, with unparalleled multi-touch control. With resolution up to eight times more than a classic 100 mm fader in FINE MODE, they can automate with never-before-seen precision and detail.
The Analog Monitoring System
The analog section of the RAVEN is 100% digitally controlled analog circuits. You'll never have to worry about scratchy pots or noisy switches, ensuring that your monitoring path is the most minimal possible. You hear your music with absolute purity. The sound is clean clear and articulate. The monitor section has four speaker outputs, multiple source inputs, eight channel cue outputs for custom headphone mixes through optional headphone mixers, and even convenient console-top USB ports to plug in thumb drives, dongles and external hard drives.
