StudioBLADE is a scalable music production tool. The user can start with the base configuration with a single processor, one memory module and one hard drive, and add more as they need it. “The goal was to produce products that would endure the test of time, or even better yet, the increasing shorter product cycles from the computer parts manufactures.” Said Victor Wong, CEO, Music Computing. “By using server components, which are supported in terms of years or decades instead of months, the StudioBLADE represents a sound investment that will save its users time and money far into the future”
