Finding a high-end work computer was a major hurdle in starting my career as a composer and producer. I needed something that could efficiently operate large Pro Tools sessions as well as a host of various plug-ins. The Mac Pro is often seen as the go-to machine for situations like this, but I found the price to be insurmountable. Not to mention it's laden with expensive features I have no need for.
The Pro Tools PC was the solution to all my problems. Made inexpensively but not cheaply, I cannot imagine there ever being a product like this that gives you more bang-for-your-buck. The performance of the machine has been stellar. I've never encountered a single performance problem with it and now feel sorry for all those poor fellas who felt it necessary to pay far more for a Mac Pro (and this is coming from a someone who identifies as a Mac person).
To top it all off, I've always felt like I was in great hands due to the second-to-none customer support. Steve has offered continued support long after I purchased my PTPC and always responds quickly and thoroughly, regularly going beyond the call of duty.

The Pro Tools PC is powerful, incredibly fast, and it has NEVER failed. You do NOT need a Mac to get the performance you need.
The PTPC is less expensive and just as powerful. It is so nice to start a Pro Tools session in less than 2 minutes (boot up to pressing play) and the computer shuts down in less than 10 seconds.
The Pro Tools PC arrived ready for me to install my plug ins and virtual instruments. Everything else was pre-loaded for me. Your customer service is perfect and I thank you for ALL of your help.
I could not have come close to building this by myself,
THANK YOU PTPC!

I love my PTPC. It has changed my life. When you are not afraid to turn on your 'clunker' and fear another session getting sacked due to outdated, under-performing technology, you begin to embrace switching on the computer as if it were Christmas.
I have mostly been working on old PT music files from the Musical I am writing, and upgrading them into PT12. I have updated all my instruments and purchased a much more substantial library to work with. Of course, I don't have all these instruments and ways to use them mastered yet.
The PTPC has not given me a moments problem. Although PT12 is not officially sanctioned for W-10 yet, trusting you that it would work smoothly, with the massively powerful system you put together for me, was a decision I am happy I made. To not have to share one instrument plug-in with multiple tracks is great. I can't believe how much I can do that I couldn't do before with my old HP system and just 8 GB ram (4gb actually usable). I appreciate too, that you are there for me if and when I DO have a problem.
Thanks again Steve for all you did in getting me through the process of getting into a PTPC. It is definitely a game changer!
