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.

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 acomplish 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. Rain Computers exists because people have trouble running audio software on regular computers. Pro-Tools-Expert.com 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.

(Exact specifications are subject to technological changes, please confirm them when placing your order.)
*5U when racked - half U above and below for cooling purposes.


it's essential that you leave at least a half U of space above and below to ensure good airflow.


Rack it up

Always leave room for air flow

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. 



Well connected

Check out what's happening around the back.


1. Integrated graphics brings additional rendering power and multiple monitor support on both analog and digital outputs.
2. USB3 ports in abundance.
3. Dual Gigabit ethernet for keeping you connected at the highest speeds.
4. 7.1 Surround sound multi-media connections for non-Avid applications.
5. Discrete Nvidia graphics to ensure maximum compatibility and up to 4 monitor outputs.
6. Integrated Firewire port tested compatible with Avid interfaces
7. Four PCIe and one PCI slot free for Pro Tools cards and expansion.
8. eSATA port for super fast connection to external drives.

Optional dual Thunderbolt ports upgrade replaces one of the Ethernet ports and removes the Firewire port.

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.

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.
