Inspired by Pro Tools

Designed for Pro Tools

Dedicated to Pro Tools

The Pro Tools PC

Avid's Pro Tools is the industry standard in professional recording and music production. It deserves a dedicated PC platform - this is it.

Designed and built from the ground up for Pro Tools. Drawing from over 30 years of industry experience. Combining the talents of the world's best Pro Tools support and audio computer manufacturing. There has never been a machine so focused on providing the perfect Pro Tools experience.

You probably already know this, which is why you're here.

Not all computers are created equal

Why does Pro Tools need a dedicated PC? 

Pro Tools as a piece of software should be able to run on any compatible computer - and it can. However your Pro Tools experience relies on the computer being able to handle very complex and resource heavy functions, that are far beyond what it has to accomplish when running Word or surfing the Internet. Recording, mixing and processing multiple tracks of high definition audio, while generating sounds in response to virtual instruments is no easy task and draws on all elements of a computer system. You probably already know this, which is why you're here. Audio PC manufacturers exist because people have trouble running audio software on regular computers. User groups and forums exists because people have trouble running Pro Tools on regular computers. The Pro Tools PC settles the issue once and for all. We can't promise complete perfection - these are computers after all - but we can provide a system that's been built and tested at every stage with Pro Tools in mind supported by professional people who use these systems and software every day.

It's all in the performance

Stunning low latency power right where it matters - in Pro Tools

Now with more Processor Cores

The Pro Tools PC has evolved to offer a choice of Cores for more native processing

As technology changes and improves The Pro Tools PC is able to take advantage of the amazing power within Intel's increasing number of processor cores. Our standard 4-Core system has been our benchmark and the system by which all others are measured, but now we can also offer higher processor counts in our new 6-Core and 8-Core systems for increased plug-in and instrument counts. Beyond that we are developing a multi-processor system that will allow for 12, 16, 20 and 24 physical cores for dealing with the most intense sessions and elaborate compositions without compromise. 

In every Pro Tools PC the low latency performance, reliability and stability is the same, it's purely the ceiling that is raised.

To access more cores we have integrated new motherboards and so each system varies in the exact features they carry. Here's a quick comparison of the different systems.

Rack it up

For perfect studio integration

You have to love that 4U rack mount chassis. Perfect for an audio rack. It's not too deep like most server style cases, only about 17" (42.5cm) from front to back. However, it should be noted that The Pro Tools PC actually needs 5U of space in a rack and the chassis is designed to fit with a half U space at the top and bottom. Although the front panel is 4U there are intake fans on the bottom of the chassis and vents in the top that must not be covered, and so it's essential that you leave space to ensure good airflow. You can pick up a pair of half U blank panels from our store if you need to. 

Our new Dual Xeon system is just too mighty to fit in that space and so requires a full size tower case. The tower case is also available for the 4, 6 & 8-Core systems. 

One stop shop

Don't forget your peripherals

How about an ultra wide-screen Dell UltraSharp U2913WM? Perfect for accomodating those larger projects. Or a fully annotated Pro Tools shortcut keyboard so you never need to look up another function. Don't skimp on the one thing that connects you to your computer - the mouse - we can recommend the awesome Logictech MX Performance laser mouse. These and many other peripherals are available when you buy The Pro Tools PC. And if there's something you need that's not on our list then get in touch and we'll do our best to supply it.

This is not simply a box of bits put together for audio production this is a dedicated, supported and focused system for running Pro Tools that will keep on giving, today and into the future.

But not only that

Every Pro Tools PC comes with an unprecedented support package. 

First you get world class hardware technical support from Molten Music Technology (UK and Europe) and Pro Tools PC USA (USA, Canada and surrounding areas) who consider every customer to be one of the family. Each system is armed with TeamViewer, a remote control support solution that allows us to take control of your computer and resolve any setup issues you may have. In configuring Pro Tools we have the knowledge and experience to guide you through those first steps and beyond. And finally in the unlikely event that something goes horribly wrong then your system backup will get you up and running again in a matter of minutes.

Pro Tools PC USA

Steve Gilliland may be more familiar as "Guitardom" the man behind the essential Trasher app for Pro Tools. His technical skills, experience and professional, unflapable manner made him the perfect choice for managing The Pro Tools PC in the USA.

Steve started his music career on the typical path of picking up the guitar as a child. Picked up the interest of recording along the way and soon found a new obsession. Graduated from the Conservatory of Recording arts and Sciences in 2001 and immediately landed the gig of a Pro Tools operator at a large studio. Moved into doing everything from ADR, voice over, and commercial work for many TV, radio, and movies with many big stars as well as assisting with some well respected engineers and producers on many albums during this time. Eventually Steve left to build up his own studio in while continually tearing into, repairing, modifying, and building computers (among many other things). This led to assisting others to design, spec out, build and troubleshoot computers on the Avid (Digidesign) DUC. He also developed the Trasher app quite a few years back to assist Windows users in troubleshooting Pro Tools and creating backups along the way. Still very active musically playing for bands and keeping up on his guitar chops when time permits.
