Ringwood, NJ, March 19, 2009 - Rain Recording announced their latest Audio +
Game Workstation, Solstice "Dragon Edition", a system tailored specifically
to audio production for game development. This special edition to the
acclaimed Solstice line of music computers is housed in a striking crimson

Rain Recording CEO Kevin Jacoby explains, "With the game industry now
rivaling Hollywood we recognize the need for tools that address the unique
challenges of the game development community. We're truly excited to
announce Solstice "Dragon Edition", the result of Rain's partnership with
award winning composers who score some of the hottest games in the world
like Batman and Grand Theft Auto."

gaming performance, Solstice "Dragon Edition" combines the most powerful
Phenom II 955 X4 quad core processor with a RAID-0 array of high performance
drives and up to 16GB of low latency memory. To provide the highest level of
