Pro Studio speed - micro/mobile format!

  • Silent Mini-ITX case
  • 750w Quiet power-supply
  • Intel i5 13600k @ 5.1GHz (14 cores)
  • 32GB DDR5
  • 500GB M.2 SSD (OS/Applications)
  • UHD-770 (two monitors)
  • Thunderbolt 4
  • WiFi 6 / Bluetooth 5.2
  • Windows 11 x64 
  • 2 year warranty


Case:

The Micro-Tower case is silent and sturdy.  Case dimensions are 12.84" x 5.51" x 9.61".


Power-Supply:

The stock 750w power-supply is ultra quiet (fan only runs under heavy loads).


CPU:

13600k (14 cores, 20 processing threads, 5.1GHz max turbo)

13700k (16 cores, 24 processing threads. 5.4GHz max turbo)

 

RAM:

32GB is sufficient for most users.

The Pro Studio Micro allows up to 64GB.


OS drive:

Small M.2 SSD is what we now recommend for most clients. 

With a M.2 SSD, the machine boots quicker, apps open quicker, and navigating the OS is 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).


SATA SSD:

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 3400-7000MB/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 Win11 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:

Many have been waiting for that compelling reason to move to Win11.  With recent builds of Win10, Microsoft has broken the ability to disable CPU core parking.  If you're running a current generation CPU, this is that compelling reason.  For maximum performance (especially at low latency), we need CPU core parking fully disabled. Win11 allows us to fully disable CPU core parking.

All 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.

This is why we no longer offer Win10 for current generation hardware.
