• 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 x64 Pro.

    "Pro" version has Group Policy Editor (easy to shut down OneDrive, Cortana, etc)... and can fully disable all automatic updates.
