Digital Audio Workstations

Our advanced, custom assembled Digital Audio Workstations offer offer plenty of CPU and DSP processing power, while project and audio data are stored safely on high speed RAID disk arrays. Even complex audio projects with hundreds of tracks and audio effects can be mixed in real time without effort.

The main workstation is based on a powerful six-core CPU with 32 GB RAM and over 17 TB of disk storage space. The installed UAD-2 Quad DSP card takes care of most of the audio processing using world-class audio plugins, while the external Audient ASP008 microphone preamps and RME Fireface UFX audio interface guarantee pristine audio recording and playback. The operating system, programs and sound libraries are installed on lightning fast Solid State Drives, while all project files are stored safely on 8 TB RAID-1 (mirror) high speed disk drive arrays.
