Rain Recording Release New Element Digital Audio Workstations

Rain Recording released the next generation of their high-end, Windows-based, Element, digital audio workstations. Rain’s new Element is driven by Intel’s latest Penryn processor technology and is available in Dual- and Quad-Core configurations with up to 6 Terabytes of high-speed storage.

The Element line offers expansion via full size PCI Express slots, FireWire, USB 2.0 and eSATA ports. At its core, the Element features Rain’s Quiet Cool technology that fine-tunes each system to prevent audio engine failure, data bottlenecks and heat build-up while enhancing stability and performance. On the outside, the sleek, all-aluminum chassis lets heat dissipate naturally so the internal cooling system can run quieter for virtually silent operation.
