  • UHD-770 (two monitors)

Case:

The "Chimney" style case is silent, sturdy, and has a handle for portability.  Case dimensions are 7" x 10" x 16".


Power-Supply:

The stock 650w power-supply is quiet.

The 750w and 850w units are ultra quiet (fan only runs under heavy loads).

If running the 12900k CPU, choose 750w or 850w


CPU:

12600k (10 cores, 16 processing threads, 4.9GHz max turbo)

12700k (12 cores, 20 processing threads. 5.0GHz max turbo)

12900k (16 cores, 24 processing threads, 5.2GHz max turbo)

12900ks (16 cores, 24 processing threads, 5.5GHz max turbo)


RAM:

32GB is sufficient for most users.

The Pro Studio Micro allows up to 64GB.


OS drive:

Small SSD as OS drive is what we recommend for most clients.

With a SSD, the machine boots quicker, apps open quicker, and navigating the OS is a little more "snappy".


Audio drive:

A conventional HD can sustain over 100 solid/contiguous 24Bit/44.1k tracks of audio.

No need for SSD as Audio drive... (unless you're working at higher sample-rates).


Samples drive:

Disk-streaming sample libraries is where SSD really shines.

2.5" SSDs sustain over 500MB/Sec (three times the speed of a conventional HD).


m.2 Ultra SSD:

Disk-streaming sample libraries is where SSD really shines.

m.2 Ultra SSDs use 4 PCIe lanes and sustain 3200-7000MB/Sec (17-35 times the speed of conventional HD).

If pushing the limits with disk-streaming sample libraries, m.2 Ultra will yield absolute maximum polyphony.


Video:

UHD-770 is fine for straight up audio production (can run a pair of monitors).

 

Thunderbolt:

On the PC, we now have complete "PCIe via Thunderbolt" support.

You must be running an up-to-date install of Win10 and have a motherboard that provides Thunderbolt-4 via USB-C port.

Antelope, RME, MOTU, Presonus, and UA have full "PCIe via Thunderbolt" drivers available.  

If the audio interface is Thunderbolt-2, you'll need a Thunderbolt-3 to Thunderbolt-2 adapter.  (Thunderbolt-4 can use the same adapter)


Operating System:

All major audio software/hardware is working well with Windows 10 x64.

Most major audio software/hardware is now working well with Windows 11.

"Pro" version has Group Policy Editor (easy to shut down OneDrive, Cortana, etc)... and can fully disable all automatic updates.

Safest route is to go with Win10 x64 (for now)... and upgrade (free) to Windows 11 in the future.
