Sonica Audio Labs Debuts VHPextreme Audio Workstation

Extreme audio workstationSonica Audio Labs has introduced the VHPextreme audio workstation, powered by the Intel Pentium D965 Extreme Edition Dual Core Processor running at 3.7GHz per core, with 4MB of cache memory and with a 1066MHz Front Side Bus (FSB). In addition, the VHPextreme workstation incorporates Extreme XMS II DDR2-800MHz memory, SATA II and Quad Display support.


The performance boost gained by the VHPextreme workstation simply translates into more plug-ins to run, more VST instruments to run and more tracks to add, resulting in an overall increase on a user’s efficiency to minimize their total production time while maintaining rock-solid stability.

With its brushed aluminum case, it is time when words like stylish and sexy could be used to describe an audio PC. While being sexier than a standard beige or black PC, the VHPextreme audio workstation utilizes heat-pipe technology and ultra-quiet fans to keep a user’s audio production environment quiet.

The VHPextreme audio workstation also offers a range of ports to add additional hardware and interface to a studio gear. There are six USB2.0 ports, dual Texas Instruments FireWire IEEE-1394a ports, along with Quad Display support.

Sonica Audio Labs, LLC. configures the VHPextreme audio workstation with audio production in mind, shipping with customized BIOS and optimized Windows XP services.
