Sonica has introduced the HUSH-965 audio workstation, a computer specifically designed for computer audio work. The workstation is powered by the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor running at 2.4GHz per core, with 4MB of cache memory and with a 1066MHz Front Side Bus (FSB). In addition, the HUSH-965 workstation incorporates Extreme XMS II DDR2-800MHz memory, SATA II and Dual Display support.
The HUSH-965 workstation supports all the very latest Intel technologies. The performance boost gained by the HUSH-965 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.
The HUSH-965 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 Dual Display support.
