The RAVEN MTi is a state-of-the-art multi-touch DAW and software controller featuring the RAVEN MIXER, a powerful multi-touch mixer that can control all major DAWs, and a flexible and user-customizable multi-function TOOLBAR. At the heart of the RAVEN MTi is the most important thing of all: your DAW, right at your fingertips.
The RAVEN MTi is compatible in single-touch with all major DAWs and features a 27”, 6-touch multi-touch display. Our Integrated-Direct-Touch DAW controller software is housed in a sleek profile that will quickly become the centerpiece of any modern creative audio environment. The RAVEN communicates with your computer using a standard DVI cable and a USB 2.0 connection, making setup a breeze.
The RAVEN programming team developed the RAVEN protocol that connects to your DAW instantly via the industry standard Ney-Fi protocol found in current versions of all major DAWs. Once set up, RAVEN MTi integrates with your DAW giving you instantaneous hands-on control of all your DAW’s parameters allowing you to actually touch the interface. The multi-touch feature allows for multiple hand gestures on essential mixing tools such as fader control, while editing is done with a direct single touch. You can even have hands-on control of your plug-in parameters. Manufacturers are in the process of developing high-end multi-touch versions of your favorite plug-ins for RAVEN.
The Multi-Touch Display The RAVEN’s 27″ display has an HD resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, and is completely LED backlit so it consumes very little power and emits low EMI (Electromagnetic Interference). The images are crystal clear and the brightness controls allow you to adjust the display to your desired result. RAVEN also becomes the main display for your computer allowing you all the touch control of your DAW, but if desired a second monitor can be used in addition to the RAVEN for even more flexibility.
The RAVEN Mixer The RAVEN Multi-Touch DAW control software puts your DAW right at your fingertips. A large-format multi-touch mixer gives you complete access to faders, pans, mutes, solos, sends, automation, and even plugin inserts. Of course, you can easily tweak the controls of your plugins directly with your fingers as if it were physical outboard gear. 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 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 Pro Tools 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 100mm fader in FINE MODE, they can automate with never-before-seen precision and detail.
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. Best of all, because the RAVEN Toolbar is virtual, it’s user-customizable – Put the controls you want where you want them.
