Rain Recording Element Core I7 Audio Workstation
Rain Recording has unveiled its new Element Core i7 workstation.
It's an all-aluminum tower that houses a component architecture designed "to endure the most demanding audio production environments," according to Rain. Powered by the new Intel "Nehalem" Core i7 architecture overclocked to 3.6GHz with Rain's Overclock Stability Control (OSC), Element has been tested with pro audio software like Pro Tools, Cubase and SONAR.
The Element line offers expansion via seven PCI and PCI Express slots, FireWire on the TI Chipset, USB 2.0 and eSATA ports for multiple high-speed connections to audio interfaces and external storage. It features Rain's Quiet Cool System Design designed to fine-tune each workstation to prevent audio engine failure, data bottlenecks and heat build-up while markedly enhancing stability and performance, according to Rain.
Available options include up to 12GB of 1333MHz DDR3 Triple Channel memory, 6 Terabytes of high performance conventional and Solid State Drives (SSD), and high definition graphics processors able to power multiple digital displays. The new Element workstation ships standard with Windows XP Pro or Vista Ultimate 64-bit tuned by Rain for audio production.
