WNAMM13: Slate Pro Audio Affordable Raven Touchscreen

27 inch multi-touch screen and monitor station      05/02/13

Winter NAMM 2013 - Slate Pro Audio

One of the booths you had trouble getting near was the Slate Pro Audio - where Steven Slate was sitting in front of the massively impressive Raven MTX - a massive multi-touch mixing surface, that was announced last year with a price tag to match.

Also shown was the Raven MTI, a smaller touchscreen housed in a metal case with a monitor control system and a couple of Macbook Pro speakers inside.

The touchscreen interface was actually pretty responsive and the size seemed to be more suited to most working situations. Of course, you can still use the touchscreen to perform other functions outside of your DAW, but the additional control layer - Raven Control Software, that Slate Pro Audio have developed really does use some smart macros and workflow enhancements that take advantage of touch.

Best news is though its still not a low cost solution, its certainly becoming affordable at $3,500
