Slate is the fucking man!
I'm really eager to get some more information on this one, since I'm not quite grasping the signal flow here. Is it just a DAW controller with an inegrated monitoring section? The MC Mixes are just controllers, but do they also control a summing system or something? Either way, I want it!
4x Avid Artist Mix - £4k
6x Slate Dragon - £9k
4x Slate Fox - £7k
Argosy Desk - £1-2k (?)
+ all the other stuff going on....yeah it's not going to be 10k!
I don't think the Dragons and foxes are included. The feature list says this:
Integrated rack bays for outboard gear, converters, interfaces, preamps…"
Obviously Slate would push for his own outboard gear, but the impression I got at NAMM was that the desk comes with open slots.
I have to say, it's nice to see Slate move out of the random-Chinese-produced-violin section to just off of the main strip at NAMM. I also have to say, his booth babes have improved as well...except for that one time I recognized one of them from high school...that was weird.
So any info on that console ?
Yeah the link in the first post?
Unless you mean price, which there isn't an official number from Slate yet on that.
I don't even think anyone ont his forum could afford something like that...you would have to be crazy as fuck to pay 9500 for monitors..
I'm sure that the monitors aren't for most people on this forum. He's trying to swim with the big fish with those things, I bet.
Didn't Plec just get an AWS?
+1, with a caveat: they have to be worth the $9,500 price tag. I am betting these probably are.
Wonder why there's no price on the raven. Waiting for competition to announce 2012 price points?
10 grand monitoring solutions, holy moly. I'd love to hear em'!
I was going to be saving for Opals, but if these live up the hype I may just be saving for 3 times as long.
Or leasing them for $189 per month looks pretty damn cool.
Both of these look super cool!
Check btw the gearslutz thread of the desk, there's one guy threatening with lawsuits, as he had published/registered some similar looking/features including desk with sketches. AND Steven had contacted him, in search for assistance on his "new project" or something.. Dunno if any of this holds water, but after the VCC/Nebula case this seems bit too familiar again..
Not necessarily uncommon - hell the Ocean Way HR3 Monitor System is $50,000 / pair. Not likely to see them in too many places at that price point, but I've always said, money is a relative thing - relative to the amount you have
Probably not fitting in my 12' x 11' Home Studio - but damned they would look cool.
Get le opals!
I'm about to move to a much larger room, so if I can find anywhere to demo these I'm going to have to hear them . I'm still tossing up between the Focal Twins and the Opals, as my mastering engineer uses the twins and I am quite accustomed to the sound of them as opposed to the Opals where I have only heard them in store.
That being said I am still completely happy with my MSP7's, and I definitely feel like they are letting down my work in any way. I think the best option would be to buy a pair of them and if I feel I don't need them return them.
I read through the Gearslutz thread, and it pretty much answered all my questions. I have to say I'm really excited about this product, as it seems like exactly what I need.
And regarding the rip-off claims... Well, I think it's a bit ridiculous. He sues if he sues, let's just keep it at that.
