Sweetwater Creation Station Rack

Musical instrument and pro audio retailer Sweetwater in Fort Wayne, Ind., introduces an updated lineup of its Creation Station audio computers. Assembled on-site at Sweetwater, Creation Station PCs are optimized for audio production and built to provide whisper-quiet operation in critical studio environments.

The latest family of Creation Stations includes two tower-style CPUs and two rackmountable computers. Designed to suit everyone from home-studio hobbyists to performing musicians to professionals in commercial studio settings, these machines are constructed from top-grade components for maximum speed, performance and reliability. All four models promise powerful processors, ample storage options, and multiple connection points for interfaces and other peripherals.

Housed in a sturdy rackmountable chassis, the flagship Rack XT has 6 GB of RAM, a 2.66GHz Core i7 processor, a 500GB hard drive, and a 1TB audio/library drive. Like the other models in the Creation Station family, the Rack XT includes a dual-output VGA/DVI port, and a multimedia card reader. Geared toward the professional producer or musician, this audio PC is built to handle demanding studio projects, while its portable configuration makes it well suited for mobile recording or using virtual instruments onstage. It also offers 11 USB ports and two FireWire ports.

The Rack model uses a 2.83GHz Core 2 Quad processor and two 500GB drives, and provides 4 GB of RAM. It also includes nine USB ports and two FireWire ports. The quiet but powerful CPU is housed in a rackmountable enclosure, and is designed for mobile recording setups.

The new Creation Station line also includes the 2.66GHz Tower, a stand-alone unit designed for big projects. It features a Core 2 Quad processor and, like the Rack, includes two high-performance 500GB drives, nine USB ports and two FireWire connections. Ideal for USB-based home, project, and professional studio applications, the Tower LE is the most affordable of the new Creation Stations. It offers 2 GB of RAM and houses a 2.5GHz Pentium Dual-core processor and one 500GB hard drive.

Each Creation Station computer uses the Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit operating system and comes complete with a 110-key Media Station keyboard and a 3-button optical mouse. In addition, Creation Station owners get access to Sweetwater's industry-leading tech support team, as well as SweetCare Remote support, which allows for remote service. Sweetwater also backs these products with its exclusive 2-year Total Confidence Coverage warranty. Detailed information about Creation Station computers is available at www.sweetwater.com.

According to Sweetwater founder and president Chuck Surack: “These are the most powerful Creation Stations we've ever made, but they’re also the most affordable. We’re excited to offer the music community a line of computers that are built from the ground up for audio.”
