- RAVEN Key Commands setup

Registering the RAVEN passcode.
Each RAVEN comes with a passcode in the box. Go to http://raven.dl.drumclassroom.net/ and type in email address and passcode. Users will be automatically logged in to the RAVEN area of their Slate account.
Click the "Installers" option and download/install the correct RAVEN installer for the type of touch screen.
Redeeming the iLok license code.
After registering the RAVEN software, users will receive and email with an iLok Activation Code. Open the iLok License Manager and click the "Redeem" tab and paste the iLok code. Now, select the iLok USB Dongle
Setting up V-Control Pro with Cubase/Nuendo.
After the installation, open V-Control Pro and Cubase/Nuendo. Then navigate to the "Studio Setup" in Cubase/Nuendo and ad V-Control Pro as a controller.
Next, set the BANK option to "24" and turn Smart Switch Delay "Off"
Syncing Cubase/Nuendo with V-Control Pro
After V-Control Pro has been added as a controller device in Cubase/Nuendo open the RAVEN application and choose "Cubase/Nuendo" from the drop menu of the RAVEN.
RAVEN Key Commands setup
Many of the Batch Commands have been programmed with custom key commands that do not come installed by default in Cubase/Nuendo. To add the RAVEN key commands, click the File drop menu and under "Key Commands" select the RAVEN key Commands.
RAVEN Internal Mixer Setup.
To align the Raven Internal Mixer with Cubase, the Stereo In/Out tracks must be hidden since these do not send HUI info to Raven. In Cubase 9, be sure to also hide the "Sampler" tracks in the MixConsole.
