ADK Custom built PC desktop and laptop workstations are configured and optimized for audio/MIDI production as well as Vienna Symphonic Libraries Ensemble Pro on the main host system with a DAW or as a slave system.


Recommendations


CPU clock speed defines performance for plugins and latency especially over ethernet. Cores/Threads define how many VSTi’s the system can handle with plugins at any given latency. More Cores/Threads allow more VSTi’s and plugins without having to raise latency on projects. The speed of the ram determines plugins performance while the amount of ram determines how many VST’s you can run and not slow the audio engine down disk caching.


We recommend configuring our systems with the Samsung 980 NVMe Gen 4 drives for the OS for best interfacing experience and performance.
