Audio PC Workstations at Overclockers UK
Audio production requires powerful computer systems that can not only handle the processing demands of large projects, but also do so reliably. Your audio PC forms the foundation of your overall DAW (digital audio workstation) set-up, and is accompanied by additional components such as audio editing software, a soundcard or audio interface, as well as input devices. Therefore, it needs to be built specially to support all these elements, and provide maximum speed and stability for audio processing and editing.
At Overclockers UK, we understand the requirements for digital audio recording, that’s why we’ve designed a dedicated range of audio workstations, our Symphonia line, in cooperation with Music Store Pro. Owing to our combined PC hardware and musical expertise, these music production PCs are customised with the highest-quality components to serve every need of even the most discerning sound engineer or producer. What’s more, they come complete with long-lasting support and service, so you can always count on your audio workstation PC to deliver!
An Audio PC Powerhouse
To fully stand up to the task of recording and editing digital audio, a PC for music production needs three components: a fast processor, plenty of RAM, and ample storage space. The processing of audio data is highly CPU intensive and therefore the faster the processor is, and the more cores it has, the better it will perform. A large amount of RAM is also important in order to support projects with a lot of tracks, and plug-ins, which rely heavily on RAM. Similarly, an optimal storage configuration is key to a smoothly running audio workstation, since recording at higher sample rates results in large audio files. Often, running two SSD or HDDs—one to run the software and the other for audio file storage—is very effective as it reduces the risk of crashing.
Our range of high-end audio PCs honour these necessary specifications, and are based on Intel Core processors, which are ideally suited to the role thanks to their rapid clock rate and multiple-core construction. In addition, the components of each system are customisable to suit your exacting requirements, including an array of RAM and storage options from the market-leading brands. With these possibilities, you’re free to compile the ultimate PC for music production that’s tailored to you.
Stable, Silent Operation
Whether you’re a professional or an enthusiast, reliability is critical to audio recording. When in the midst of a project, CPU overloads and other system failures are at best inconvenient, and at worst destructive. Our music production workstations are designed to cope with even the most demanding audio tasks, so you will have peace of mind that your system won’t fail when recording, mixing, or mastering. Similarly, if you don’t have the luxury of a separate control room, the near silent operation of our audio workstations shouldn’t be overlooked. Their sound-proofed set-up prevents unwanted noise bleeding into sensitive microphones, as well as reducing the noise pollution in your mixing environment.
