 The Pro Tools Internal Raven Mixer requires the mixer window to be setup precisely in order for the Raven Multi Touch faders to sync with the Pro Tools mixer window.  

Check the Mix Window is maximized by clicking the green maximize button and be sure that the Pro Tools Mix Window is scrolled all the way left, so track 1 is showing. On OSX 10.11.1 Option+Click the green button to fit the screen bounds precisely.

The Raven Internal Mixer faders will usually sync better if Track Colors are on, so check the Mix Windows Views and the Color Palette and be sure the Track Colors are active. 

For the Internal Mixer to align properly only the following can be checked in the Mix Window Views drop menu.

1. Inserts A-E

2. Sends F-J

3. Meters and Faders

4. Delay Compensation

5. Track Color

6. Comments

The "grey notch" that runs from the top left of the Raven Toolbar to the bottom, is there to show where the Pro Tools "Tracks List Window" should be aligned. If this is a couple pixels off, the Internal Mixer faders will not sync with the Pro Tools Mix Window.

If the "grey notch" is even a pixel off the faders will not sync up.
