Our extremely compact, robust, and affordable 2U MusicMaker™ Portable DAW was designed specifically for the audio engineer or musician on the move, and can safely mount in any 2U (or larger) rack case to not only survive life on the road, but thrive on it. Our portable DAW is a breeze to get from location to location, and is powerful enough to handle just about anything you can throw at it. This DAW is designed to use with an internal or external sound device and includes options for a TI Chipset based 1394 card for wide compatibility with legacy external sound devices. If you are doing live recording this 2U Portable DAW Recording Computer is a surefire investment.
We do our absolute best to make sure our recording PCs are immaculately assembled, and that we get the best possible airflow paired with the silence, so that they will last you for many years to come. All of our digital audio workstations come standard with a 2-year warranty, and are built with the highest quality parts available.
Every single item in our Digital Audio Workstations (not just a select few) is geared to produce a completely silent work environment for audio recording. This silent environment is imperative when it comes to studio recording with an absolutely dry signal for cleaner mixes. A clean recording requires the added attention to silence that we bring to the picture. You want to hear all of the beautiful details of your audio, and the last thing you want to hear in your studio recordings, is your PC!
This portable digital audio workstation is built around the iStarUSA D-213-MATX 2U rackmount case. As always, we replace the noisier fans with ultra quiet Nexus® case fans.
