Rain Recording Debuts AMD-Powered Solstice Desktop Audio Workstation
(Rain Recording | Posted 2007-08-25)
Rain Recording has announced their first AMD (NYSE: AMD) processor-based audio workstation called Solstice. Solstice workstations are a new addition to Rain’s line of computers built specifically for the demanding needs of professional ¬audio and video production.
Powered by innovative AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 dual-core processors, the new Solstice 01 and 02 workstations can support through the most demanding applications without the potential bottleneck of a traditional front side bus. With more efficient and fast communication including memory and video sub-systems, DAW software audio engine computations and file streaming have a wide road to travel on not to mention high speeds. This means added performance while using less processor power and generating less heat – the hallmarks of Rain Recording’s philosophy of component balancing and “Quiet Cool” performance.
“The Rain alliance with AMD is an extremely powerful convergence of design philosophies. The outcome of which is sure to drive the creativity and confidence of our customers even further,” says Bill Paschick, Rain Recording US President, “incorporating these new AMD processors into the Solstice line has allowed us to attain equilibrium between power and affordability like never before.”
