• Pro Slave

For professional composers - VE Pro "slave" with 64GB RAM!


  • Silent Mid-Tower case
  • 650w Quiet power-supply
  • Intel i7 8700k @ 4.7GHz (6 cores)
  • 64GB DDR4
  • 250GB SSD (OS/Applications)
  • optional 10Gb Ethernet
  • HD630 (two monitors)
  • Windows 10 x64
  • 2 year warranty


  • Case:

    The stock Silent Mid-Tower case (acoustically treated to minimize noise) is sturdy and roomy with a total of 10 drive bays.

    Upgrade to the Deluxe version if you want to run more than two 5.25" drives.


    Power-Supply:

    The stock 650w power-supply is quiet.

    Both the 750w and 850w units are ultra quiet (fan only runs under heavy loads).

    If you're running many bus-powered peripherals, lots of internal drives, or dual high-end video cards... select the 850w model.


    CPU:

    The 8700k (six cores) provides twelve processing threads (twelve virtual cores) at 4.7GHz.

    The 8086k (six cores) provides twelve processing threads (twelve virtual cores) at 5.0GHz.


    RAM:

    For a VE Pro Slave, we recommend 64GB.


    OS drive:

    SSD as OS drive is certainly nice... but not an absolute necessity (conventional HD is fine).

    With a SSD, the machine boots quicker, apps open quicker, and navigating the OS is a little more "snappy".


    Samples drive:

    Disk-streaming sample libraries is where SSD really shines.

    2.5" SSDs sustain over 500MB/Sec (three times the speed of a conventional HD).

    PCIe SSDs sustain 2500MB/Sec (fourteen times the speed of a conventional HD).


    m.2 Ultra SSD:

    Disk-streaming sample libraries is where SSD really shines.

    m.2 Ultra SSDs use 4 PCIe lanes and sustain 3200-3500MB/Sec (seventeen times the speed of conventional HD).

    If pushing the limits with disk-streaming sample libraries, m.2 Ultra will yield absolute maximum polyphony.


    Ethernet:

    For maximum performance as a VE Pro "Slave", add 10Gb LAN.


    Operating System:

    At this point, nearly all major audio software/hardware is working well with Windows 10 x64.

    For most users, we now recommend Windows 10.
