Rain Recording UK announces the Nimbus Pro audio workstations 01/06/07
Rain Recording UK have released what they say are the most sophisticated, quiet and powerful audio workstation to date. The Nimbus Pro, comes in two versions, Q1 and Q2 which utilize the latest quad-core processor technology and new acoustical engineering that the makers say will give the user awesome power with near silent performance.
Nimbus Pro is built around Intelâ€™s enormously powerful Core 2 Quad processor. Add to that up to 8GB of RAM, a Terabyte of recording space in a RAID-0 configuration, and the passively cooled GeForce 7300GT graphics processor by NVIDIA, and you have the makings of a professional audio workstation without equal.
The design of Nimbus Pro emerged as part of a research project initiated by President and CTO of Rain UK, Robin Vincent. Setting out to take Rainâ€™s QuietCool philosophy of balanced system design to the next level, the team pulled together a deadly quiet combination of acoustic lining, anti-vibration hard drive enclosures, and an extra-large, heat pipe CPU cooler.
Robin Vincent told us, â€œIt was a simple plan really, we wanted to see just how quiet we could make a computer packed with this much power. With all the heat generated by processors running at that level, we knew it would be a challenge to silence the system without sacrificing performance. Weâ€™re pleased to say the challenge was not only met, but that it helped us produce our most quiet and powerful audio workstation yet.â€�
Aiding in the cooling process is a beautifully designed chassis whose all aluminum constructions lets heat dissipate naturally. Nimbus Pro also has unique, scissor doors that slide open to reveal the DVDÂ±RW drive and room for front mounted ports.
Nimbus Pro comes standard with Microsoftâ€™s newest OS, Vista Ultimate. The Q1 ships with the Vista 32-bit edition while Vista 64 Ultimate, able to address 8GB of RAM, is standard with the Q2. Rain Recording believe that the new Nimbus Pro Q series sacrifices nothing to bring you the worldâ€™s most advanced technology on a stable, consistent and reliable platform so quiet you can record vocals with one sitting next to you.
