Mentioned by Zedd in this November 2017 *Sound on Sound* interview. It is visible in [this photo](https://dt7v1i9vyp3mf.cloudfront.net/styles/news_large/s3/imagelibrary/Z/Zedd_02-Lu0P91a8V0MGTa5kkewcnu6vOq00eqSq.jpg) and [this photo](https://dt7v1i9vyp3mf.cloudfront.net/styles/news_large/s3/imagelibrary/Z/Zedd_03-8tPnbzKWDCZF6G9S6PEc8PcIJKf.pyW4.jpg), both from the same interview. > For a while, Zaslavski worked in Interscope’s studio in Los Angeles, but two years ago he moved to the Hollywood Hills, where he set up a studio in his house. “I don’t need a lot of gear. All I have here are my Augspurger speakers, the large ones you find in most big commercial studios, two small, five-inch KRK monitors, a Mac Pro with Cubase, an [Antelope Audio] Orion soundcard, a Slate Raven controller screen, a Slate Digital Virtual Microphone System, two MIDI keyboards — the Roland SV1 Stage Vintage and the Nord Stage EX88 — plus a very small two-octave MIDI controller with tiny keys, just to be able to really quickly check a synth sound or a sample."more
Honestly? I use the touch screen about 2% of the time. The "Batch Commander" is more or less useless for my work flow. Keyboard shortcuts work just fine. It is occasionally a nice but unneeded luxury in my opinion. It is nice on the resolution front tho their are better out there-cheaper too.
I bought this with EVERY intention on returning it-just wanted to try it out as a novelty. However the return window fell over the holidays, I got busy, & well now I own it. When that happened I really tried to integrate it into my work flow (batch commander, etc.) but in the end? Yeah, it's just a needless luxury.
Wanna buy it?! I'd happily sell it to move into a 2 screen or crazy wide screen system.
