RAVEN CORE Station
by Slate Media Technology
The new RAVEN CORE Station is the latest addition to the RAVEN line of multi-touch production consoles. With multiple available configurations and breakthrough workflow enhancements, it’s destined to become the new standard in modern production studios.
The RAVEN CORE Station turns your DAW into a multi-touch control surface – featuring two 27” multi-touch MTi Panels and the award-winning RAVEN software suite that will revolutionize your studio workflow. Mix with high-resolution faders, manipulate plugins with your hands as if they were hardware, and use the Batch Commander digital assistant to shave hours off of your production day by automatically performing remedial tasks while you focus on the music.
The CORE Station supports three different configurations, incorporating one or two touchscreens. Standard components allow for either single or dual setups, while a third configuration incorporating a 4-space rack space accessory with a single touchscreen is also available (rack accessory sold separately*). Each CORE Station desk also comes with a removable cutout slot on the armrest for a Slate Control Remote, and a storage cavity behind the screens for cable management.
RAVEN 3.0 now adds customized multi-touch control of Ableton Live, Cubase/Nuendo, Digital Performer, Logic Pro X, Pro Tools 10-12, and Studio One V3 on Mac as well as Windows compatibility for Pro Tools 10-12.
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 Batch Command System
The RAVEN Batch Command System is a true revolution in control. The Batch Command System 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 Batch Command System allows you to create instant headphone sends, name tracks, put entire drum tracks on the grid, export stems, and so much more! The Batch Command System comes pre-programmed with 100 preset batch commands in every DAW we support, with layouts for Music, Mastering, Post Production and more. Record your own mouse click automation or program user commands with our QUICKLIST, which features hundreds of predefined DAW operations. Just touch and hold on a Batch Command button to edit, and you’ll have access to almost limitless possibilities. With the Batch Command system you’ll get it all done faster and smarter.
Slate Remote revolutionizes your workflow in ways you must experience to believe. Slate Remote is a free app for iOS users, available at the app store to anyone with a RAVEN. Slate Remote automatically synchronizes with your RAVEN session via wifi network and gives you access to your custom Batch Commands, allowing it to remotely perform time-saving tasks for you from the palm of your hand.
FADERS 3.0 are our newest multi-touch faders that allow the most precise control of your DAW faders. By integrating multi-touch 100mm virtual faders directly into each DAW, the engineer has seamless control over mix levels and automation. The new 3.0 algorithm gives the faders a virtual ‘feel’ that allows an intuitive feeling action that is comfortable and even fun to use. And for the most critical automation, FINE FADER mode can quadruple the resolution of the faders so you can get even the most minute moves down in the first pass with ease and perfection.
