Sweetwater Creation Station
Sweetwater has introduced an updated lineup of their Creation Station audio computers.
The latest family of Creation Stations includes two tower-style CPUs and two rackmountable computers.
Housed in a rackmountable chassis, the Rack XT has 6GB of RAM, a 2.66GHz Core i7 processor, a 500GB hard drive, and a 1TB audio/library drive. Like the other models in the Creation Station family, the Rack XT includes a dual-output VGA/DVI port, and a multimedia card reader. Eleven USB ports and two FireWire ports provide plenty of connection options.
The more affordable Rack model uses a 2.83GHz Core 2 Quad processor and two 500GB drives and provides 4GB of RAM. It also includes nine USB ports and two FireWire ports. Housed in a rackmountable enclosure, this CPU is ideal for mobile recording setups.
The new Creation Station line also includes the 2.66GHz Tower, a standalone unit designed to take on big projects. It features a Core 2 Quad processor and, like the Rack, includes two 500GB drives, nine USB ports and two FireWire connections. Designed for USB-based home, project, and professional studio applications, the Tower LE is the most affordable of the new Creation Stations. It offers 2GB of RAM and houses a 2.5GHz Pentium Dual-core processor and one 500GB hard drive.
Each of these Creation Station computers uses the Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit operating system and comes with a 110-key Media Station keyboard and a 3-button optical mouse. In addition, Creation Station owners get access to Sweetwater's SweetCare Remote support, which allows for remote service. Sweetwater also backs these products with their exclusive 2-year Total Confidence Coverage warranty.
