    Steve Slate of Slate Digital discusses the thought process behind creating thier new RAVEN: Multi Touch Interface.

Monday, November 18 CHICAGO, IL – Producer, engineer, technologist, and manufacturer Steven Slate from Slate Digital was in town for In The Studio with Steven Slate presented by The Recording Academy Chicago Chapter and Producers and Engineers Wing. Thanks to Manny Sanchez from I.V. Lab Studios and Jeff Leibovich from Vintage King Audio for hosting the event at the intimate Chicago recording studio. Slate spoke to members and guests about his initial inspirations for going into the music industry, which includes a story of young love and Vanilla Ice.

He also discussed how he started in the business and how his hunger for knowledge and understanding lead him to develop the innovative products we use today. Steven not only talked about the theory behind his plug-ins, but he also demonstrated his new control surface RAVEN: Multi Touch Interface, even allowing the audience to get hands-on with the product. The event was extremely well attended with more people than seats, and audience interaction made the question and answer segment lively and informative. Slate even shared his famous BBQ sauce recipe with attendees. We, at the Chicago Chapter, are anxious to see more products from Slate Digital that further evolve recording technology.
