Multi-touch display is sharp, bright, and looks great at any angle

Built from the ground up using leading-edge touchscreen technology, the Slate Media Technology RAVEN MTi2's 27" multi-touch display was tailor-made for pro audio applications. Providing you with a commercial-grade LED backlit screen and components from industry-standard display manufacturers, the MTi2 is sharp, bright, and looks great at any angle. It boasts HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), and it's very low on power consumption and EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) emissions. And it's comfortable. At Sweetwater, we love the smooth feel of the MTi2's slick glass-coated surface.

FADERS 3.0 software removes all obstacles between you and your DAW

The RAVEN MTi2 employ's Slate Media Technology's FADERS 3.0 multi-touch control software, which gives you complete hands-on access to faders, pans, mutes, solos, sends, automation, plug-in inserts - virtually all of your DAW's functions. You'll love the visceral thrill of tweaking controls with your fingers, almost like outboard gear. And with a resolution of up to eight times a classic 100mm fader, you'll be able to write automation with never-before-seen precision and detail. The FADERS 3.0 algorithm also imparts a virtual "feel" to the faders that allows for intuitive feeling actions. Not only are they comfortable, they're a blast to use!

RAVEN Toolbar puts your controls where you want them

Anchored directly in front of your hands at the base of the Slate Media Technology RAVEN MTi2's touch display, the user-customizable RAVEN Toolbar puts your DAW's controls exactly where you want them. You get transport controls, an Edit/Mix window selector, and convenient tools for tracking, such as Record Looping, Click, Create Group, and Undo. On top of that, the RAVEN NAVPAD lets you use intuitive multi-touch gestures to perform Scrub/Shuttle, Waveform Zoom, Track Zoom, and Track Banking.

RAVEN Batch Command System executes up to a thousand key commands and mouse clicks automatically

Slate Media Technology's RAVEN Batch Command System will boost your productivity. As a series of preset and customizable buttons that can execute up to 1,000 key commands and mouse clicks automatically, BCS creates instant headphone sends, names tracks, places a drum track group on the grid, exports stems, and more. BCS comes with 96 pre-defined commands in eight window sets. Macro commands are easy to program with QUICKLIST, which features hundreds of predefined Pro Tools operations and Music and Post Production commands. Simply touch and hold a batch command button to edit, and you've got access to a myriad of possibilities.

Raven MTI2

Great gear great service. Love it !!
5/5

Best control surface there is!

It took a while to get it running but thanks to Slate's startup guides it works perfectly. There is a bit of a learning curve with this thing but once you get past that everything you will do from that point on is gonna take a lot less time. With the Raven in the studio right now our production as gone up tremendously!

Absolute Must Have

I've owned this product since January 2016. I love it hands down. Once you get use to touching everything, you will not go back to being under the mercy of a mouse. I'm planning to buy another one.

The future is here!

I'd like to point out a flaw with the Raven, but I haven't found one yet. I'll update my review when I do. To start this review, I'd like to point out that I am an old soul. I LOVE analog, I love tape, I learned to record on big SSL, API, and Neve consoles to tape in college and continued on them in studios for a short while afterwards. I think large consoles and tape are a WONDERFUL thing. That said, I'm embracing the 21st century studio. I began with small analog mixers, moved up to a 24 channel analog desk, and have now sold all of that in favor of analog outboard gear, a 500 rack of goodies, a Neve summing mixer, industry standard converters, control surfaces, and now, the Raven. It has saved me money, my whole studio doesn't go down when something breaks, and it sounds even better than my console did. Why have an okay console when you can have Neve and API quality outboard and a Neve summing mixer for less money???!!! I'm about a month and a half into the Raven and it only took me a week to realize it was time to sell my Avid Artist Mix and Control. The Raven has sped up my workflow significantly and is just as easy to "hand mix" on when compared to a console or control surface. Actually, that's not completely accurate. It's easier to automate using the virtual fader and then make quick "touch ups" with the touch screen. I just zoom in on a track and draw the changes with my finger! I did a mix twice as fast with the Raven when compared to my previous "ride the fader, touch up with the mouse" method. Customer support has been good. I haven't really had to use it, but updates come out regularly to keep the product in line with Pro Tools and Mac updates, so I'm satisfied thus far. What can I say... HOME RUN Slate!

I Couldn't Have Just One!

This product changed my work flow! It is very versatile and solid. Nothing bad to say about it. I thought I'd use the batch command option but for what I do, I didn't find a great need unless you have a really complexed set up.
