Computer For Game Sound Designers And Composers


Rain Recording have announced their latest Audio + Game Workstation, Solstice 'Dragon Edition', a system tailored specifically to audio production for game development. Here's all the details from their press release...
This special edition to the acclaimed Solstice line of music computers is housed in a striking crimson red aluminum skin and is powered by AMD's new "Dragon" platform to provide superior graphics and processing performance allowing the composer to experience the game just as the user would. Game development studios now have a powerful and stable platform for the industry standard tools used to create music and sound for games.
Solstice "Dragon Edition" addresses the unique needs of the game developer community - specifically sound designers and composers who require not only a stable audio creation platform, but also the ability to test and deploy on a system that mirrors a gamer's own experience.
Rain Recording CEO Kevin Jacoby explains, "With the game industry now rivaling Hollywood we recognize the need for tools that address the unique challenges of the game development community. We're truly excited to announce Solstice "Dragon Edition", the result of Rain's partnership with award winning composers who score some of the hottest games in the world like Batman and Grand Theft Auto."
Based on a complete platform developed by AMD (NYSE: AMD) for superior gaming performance, Solstice "Dragon Edition" combines the most powerful Phenom II 955 X4 quad core processor with a RAID-0 array of high performance drives and up to 16GB of low latency memory.
