I am a new customer of Jim Roseberry’s, and I have no doubt this is the best choice I could have made. I spent hours upon hours in search of getting a computer that was powerful, quite, and would not have to worry about getting support when I needed it, as in I could talk to someone when I needed to. I came upon Studiocat and Jim Roseberry on several of my searches on different forums and he sounded like a person with good ethics and apparently would build a system perfect for my needs, so I looked him up and gave him a call. I had two conversations I believe before I felt this the place to go and ordered one. In case you wonder how well he stands behind his products, I’ve only had the computer for a month or so and was having problems with getting drivers installed right, and other problems involving my software and hardware. Now these problems weren’t do to his build but he spent over 10 hours on the phone and going in remotely to get things set up right. For no charge!!! I don’t know how he does it because I can call in and almost every time he picks up the phone, says” hi Mark this is Jim, how can I help you?” And in a few minutes he’s logged in to my system to troubleshoot. The last call lasted 5 hours I believe and between the two of us got it where I needed it. He’s not the only one out there that builds custom workstations but he was the most competitive, by a long shot, in fact it didn’t cost me much more if I would have built my own. But now instead of the pain of building my own and trying to get it to work right, well now I have a “Jim”. The other thing that impressed me was the extensive list of his clients on his website. This is one company that you should feel very confident in putting together your next system. Oh by the way, I’ve never heard a computer run so quiet. Thanks for all your help Jim !!!!
Jim has built 6 machines for me in the last ten years... 3 for me, 3 for a friend....
His DAWs and his service are wonderful.... Highly Recommended!
Expert knowledge mixed with kindness and impeccable service!
Jim can explain difficult Hi-Tech subjects in a way that makes them easy to understand.
His recommendations are right on target!
I still get a euphoric feeling thinking of the first computer he built and set up for me!
Roseberry is a gem. He really stands by his product and went out of his way to
help me with problems I was having with hardware compatibility and Windows
issues. He is a caring person, and you don’t always find that in a business
environment. If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t have been able to make music.
I have lots of music that I have made with this
DAW. It’s at www.bethgreen.org
There are lots of serious computer geeks to be found. And there are plenty of music nerds (like me) that know all about MIDI, DAWs, VSTs & VSTi’s. But these nerds & geeks don’t really speak the same language. That’s where Jim Roseberry comes in. He’s solidly grounded in both camps, bilingual in all things musical and logical. He the nerdiest geek and the hippest rocker, all wrapped up one incredible custom DAW builder. He’s built 4 computers for me over the last 12 years. 3 of them are still in heavy use.
Back around 2007, I had been having an issue with Gigastudio consistently crashing my $5000.00 custom built computer, built from the best computer specialist in town. The guy who built it couldn’t find the problem. Tascam (owners of Gigastudio) had no helpful suggestions. No user forum I visited had an answer. I finally found Jim & spent a whopping $30.00 to schedule a phone consultation.
I explained all the details. Jim listened patiently. When I was done, he asked about my computer. I gave him the specs. He immediately said “Sorry Greg, Gigastudio is not compatible with Dual Processors.” It then occurred to me that the only way he could diagnose the problem so quickly is to be a user and a builder. He knows what works together and what doesn’t. He knows the end results beyond the spec page.
He has continued over the years in exemplary tech support and has advised me well on upgrades and next level purchases. He asks the right questions about needs, typical use, work flow & then makes recommendations. I trust him. Completely. My livelihood counts on his work not getting in my way or slowing me down. His systems are fast, silent to the point of having to check to make sure they’re on & rock solid. Yeah, I’m a fan. You will be too if you let him build your next DAW.
Purrrfect Audio is the purrrfect place to purchase a Windows music PC. Jim Roseberry will not only stear you straight to the computer gear you need for your project studio or live application, he backs up his systems with integrity and experiential knowledge. Pre and post purchase, whenever I need assistance with hardware and/or software questions, Jim interrupts his busy day with a timely reply and cogent assistance. When it’s time for an upgrade there’s only one place I will go: Purrrfect Audio, for fairly priced, well thought out systems and unparrelled support! It’s what artists need!
Jim Roseberry at Studio Cat/Purrrfect Audio built a Pro Studio PC (Coffee Lake CPU: i7 8700 i7: 4.7GHz, 6 core/12 thread ) for me in March 2019. This machine is working great! Jim also provided an extraordinary amount of help and support getting the thunderbolt drivers installed, getting my new RME UFX+ up and running, getting Cakewalk by Bandlab installed, and retrieving my legacy Cakewalk plugins. In summary, he has gone above & beyond all expectations I had -- and as a result I would recommend Jim Roseberry at Studio Cat/Purrrfect Audio to anyone and everyone looking for a high performance music recording/production PC.

I bought a I9 pro Studio from Purrrfect audio for Music & Sound Design work. It works like a charm and Jim gave me some good support to build a killer station. I would highly recommend!
I have been using Computers from Jim Roseberry at
Studiocat Computers for about 10 years now.
The products are first class – as good as you will get
anywhere, but what sets Studiocat apart from other suppliers, is Jim’s in depth
knowledge and fabulous pre and after sales service.
All our music is produced on Studiocat Computers. You

I really can’t recommend Jim and Studiocat enough.
Jim runs an outstanding company. My build has been outstanding, with only one small mechanical problem seven years later. His support quality is unmatched and tireless. I highly recommend Jim and Purrrfect Audio. 5 of 5 stars
I was using a Lenovo laptop running Cubase etc with a mix of live and midi recording using a Scarlett 18i20 Gen 1 and having terrible latency problems (lags between playing an instrument and hearing the altered signal through the headphones or monitors). With the Purrrfect Audio i9 Pro Studio, at least for simple setups without Ozone etc, I can run with a buffer size of 16, thats 16/44.1 kHz = 0.4 ms of added latency. I detect no latency. I am very happy with this machine.
Also, I am a research scientist by profession. This power of this machine has made it my preferred machine to do computations for some of my research. (I turned on the unix capabaility inherent in windows.) These are the fastest cores available to me.
I was looking for an affordable but high quality small project computer to record my scratch musical ideas and use for everyday computing.Jim at Studio Cat answered all my questions, made excellent recommendations and built me a purrfect PC within my budget. I am completely happy with it. It was affordable, well-built with great parts, and boy is it quiet. I recommend Studio Cat!
I was long overdue for a new computer to run my modest home studio. Digging around on the web, l learned of the legendary Studiocat and the machines he builds. Suitably impressed by what I was reading about Jim and his systems, I was delighted to learn that, by coincidence, he happened to be based only about 30 miles from me. I contacted him, described my working style and mocked up a system that I thought might serve my needs. Jim was very quick to respond and was happy to answer all my questions. I ordered my customized Project Studio system the very next day, then dropped by his place to pick it up a few weeks later. I am ecstatic with the way this thing works! I am using Cakewalk as my primary DAW, with drum loops, live instruments and a load of vst instruments. It handles all of this with perfect ease.
All is well!
We’ve been very happy with our two VEP hosts
from Perfect Audio— great machines with great personalized setup and support.
I cannot say enough good things about Jim Roseberry and Purrrfect audio.Other than being a great human being, he is the smartest and most thorough PC builder that I have ever met.After having a short conversation with him, I knew he was the right fit for my studio and PC needs.I have had PCs built by almost every major daw builder in the business, and none of them come close to the quality, quietness and solidity of Jim’s builds. Just unpacking The shipping boxes when they arrive at your door, you will realize that this is no ordinary build.On top of all that, Jim Tech supports your old machines (if you are using them as slaves) and helps you get those optimized to use with your new machines as well. I have never met a company with better tech-support, period. He seems to always be available to answer my dumbest or toughest pc questions! Obviously, I cannot recommend Jim enough. Truly, the best of the best by far.I couldn’t be happier.
Companies are only as professional, efficient, helpful and friendly as the people that comprise them. Jim not only emulates all of those attributes (and a myriad more), his personal touch and insistence on quality and integrity that he put into the computer that he built for me is nothing short of an inspiring example of character and craftsmanship that is rarely seen anymore. What he did for me was nothing less than a career (and life) changer. If you are looking to advance your career, and if that career involves a computer upgrade, you can be sure that Purrrfect audio will take it upon themselves to personally ensure that that is their mission as well. This has been a tremendous experience for me that I cannot possibly praise, guarantee and validate enough.
I have had the pleasure of dealing with Mr Roseberry while he remotely set up my DAW PC. I also consulted with him when finalising the build and he made valuable alternative suggestions and was able to guide me regarding various components. He has gone the extra distance to make sure that everything is running smoothly and his technical knowledge, attention to detail and professionalism are inspiring to see. I have no hesitation in recommending his services. Thanks again for your help, Jim.
