App NAMM 2015: Slate Remote for Pro Tools & Logic (Batch Commander & RAVEN- coming soon


The Batch Command system that originated exclusively on the RAVEN provided a sophisticated macro system that could perform tasks in seconds that would normally take engineers hours of manual labor. At AES 2014, Slate Media Technology released the Batch Commander standalone application for Pro Tools, giving any user the Batch Command functionality without the need for a RAVEN console.

Now, at NAMM 2015, Slate takes the Batch Command System to a new level with the updated Batch Commander 2.0 software for both Pro Tools and now, Logic Pro X, as well as the addition of an iOS remote for iPhone and iPad, called Slate Remote.

Check out this video featuring Slate Remote, and Batch Commander 2.0 for Pro Tools 10, 11, and Logic Pro X.



FOR LOGIC USERS, USE THIS LINK TO SKIP TO THE LOGIC PRO X DEMO:
Introducing Slate Remote for Pro Tools & Logic (Works with Batch Commander and RAVEN) - YouTube

Batch Commander 2.0 has an all new GUI with clear buttons that reveal more text than before. There are more preset buttons, an"EZ" mode, and many more features.

Slate Remote and Batch Commander 2.0 for Pro Tools 10,11 and Logic Pro X will be available soon. It is a FREE upgrade for current users, and will be priced at $99.

See the entire system in action at Slate Media Technology NAMM booth 6921.

Looks great! I wonder if there are any problems with the new Logic Pro X update?

Wow, can't believe how utterly unimportant cubase users are to Slate. I can't see why fun little iPhone apps are much more important than Raven compatibility for cubase users.

Just for one moment.. consider the fact that we've been working on Cubase, and that perhaps the delay is due to the fact that it's difficult, not that we find Cubase users (of which I am one), "unimportant".

Cubase, DP, Windows, Ableton, are all coming.

Cheers,
Steven

Brilliant. The creation and execution of the BV copy paste in Logic was out of this world.

Hey Steven.
Quite honestly you received the brunt of my frustration that another Namm has passed by and there is still no viable 16 channel mix controller available that works well for cubase. I am basically a customer waiting to give you my money at this point as soon as raven cubase compatibility is good to go. I am a protools user as well but use cubase for all my composing arranging etc. I know you guys are fighting an uphill battle to get previously promised updates going and keep your user base happy (which btw I am one) With that said, I was really hoping for an announcement for cubase users at Namm and when I saw iPhone apps being released I really felt like...**** why is that more important than getting a fairly large group of people that would likely give you thousands of dollars to buy into your hardware/software platform that already exists? My logical mind sees it as a no brainer but I must be even more ignorant than I thought I was on these matters. So the question is do you have an estimated release for cubase users?

So I have good new Cubase users!! Some interesting things have come up and you may see an amazing solution for Cubase even sooner!

The Slate Remote is gonna be great for solo recording engineers btw. You can sit in your live room and remotely run the session, add new playlists, create new tracks, add favorite plugins... gonna be great!

Cheers,
Steven

That would be awesome! When are you going to have the Raven and Batch Command for Windows? I've been checking your site for a year and it still says *PC-compatibility will be available in a future release. I'm just sitting here with the $$$ waiting, lemme know!

It's the Siren which was announced a couple of years back, but yet to be released I think..
I remember Steven raving about them with their emulations, from what I remember.

Is there a pre made batch command for the Logic Function Bounce in Palce. Mostly every project I use, I set some plugins which I don´t touch again and want to Bounce in place them, as they need CPU and I don´t change them anyway. Like VCC for example. So, I have 40 Tracks I need to Bounce separate and this tooks time for track after track. A batch command would be great. any info on that?

We have all of the Bounce functions set up as Batch Commands.. If you wanted to bounce a whole session worth of VCC you could use

1. Bounce in Place
2. Wait for Render
3. Cursor Down
repeat this 40 times and it will go down the session and bounce all the tracks in place either deleting or hiding the old tracks...

hi Steven.

I was hoping to use the Raven mti with cubase 8 in the near future, meaning when it becomes available.

I was wondering if there were any reasons not to purchase the Raven mti now vs. waiting until cubase compatibility is released?

I do believe it will be a great control solution for my studio and looking forward to it.

I am installing some new studio renovations, some updates in mic locker, and moved to the focusrite rednet 1+4 system. Would be great to include the Raven in the next month.

Thank you in advance
