Mixing is an art, just like the music itself. It requires a creative mind and the right set of tools. Deadpan Studios implements a hands-on approach similar to analog but in the digital domain. With the Raven MTi2, a multi-gesture touch screen with software integration, it will be possible to reach out and touch the “Digital Audio Workstation”. Deadpan Studios utilizes the immense possibilities that digital has to offer: fully automated, fully recallable, producing any sound imaginable. Of course one can't forfeit the option to come into the analog world and run drums through an Earthquaker Devices pedal when the moment strikes—which it does on occasion.
