The Slate Digital RAVEN MTI2 marries the tactile control of yesterday’s mixing consoles with the convenience of today’s tablet technology. With the RAVEN, nevermore do you have to rely on your mouse for controlling your DAW. Instead, the RAVEN provides a tablet-like control-surface where you can raise and lower faders, facilitate touch-control over plug-ins, operate all the buttons of a traditional transport, and more.
The MTI2 represents the current iteration of RAVEN technology, putting it all in a 27” screen that supports 10-point multitouch, gestural control. The screen sits on an included stand that is angle-adjustable. With the MTI2, you can control many faders at once, manipulate pans and sends, and set up recording sessions quickly and efficiently.
The latter function achieves its expediency by means of the Batch Command System, which can execute a whole series of key commands with the press of one virtual button. By default, hundreds of presets are included for most major DAWs. However, you can program your own custom commands yourself, housing up to 1000 key commands and mouse clicks automatically.
The RAVEN MTI2 interfaces with most computers and most DAWs, though for a list of general compatibilities, please see the specification section. Connections can be made to your computer by means of a standard HDMI cable (available separately) and a USB 2.0 connection. An iLok 2 dongle—also available separately—is required for operating the Raven. Slate's Revitalizer spray is included with this product, so you can keep the surface of the touchscreen feeling like new.
