Product Description

Introducing the LiveBook AFX. With two drives (one solid state, one mechanical), 4 processor cores and up to 16GB of memory, it's the fastest, most powerful audio workstation you ever put in your backpack and took to a gig. LiveBook AFX is designed for pro audio production and DJs. It's tested and certified to run everything from Pro Tools and Cubase to Serato and Adobe CS6. This is what it's like when your computer can keep up with your creativity.

Ready for everything.

LiveBook AFX wants to make sure you're prepared for whatever happens, whether you're recording an orchestra, DJing a club or doing a major label record from your hotel room. And with this much power, you're adding all the tracks, plug-ins and virtual instruments you need to bring your music to life, any time, anywhere. High speed ports like USB 3.0 and eSATA 3.0 give you streaming up to 6 gigabits per second and the NVIDIA GeForce GT 675M graphics processor makes sure you can score a movie as easily as watching one.

Welcome to tech support for creative people.

In addition to the complimentary 1 year RainCare Technical Support and Warranty, your Rain also includes a free Rain Ensemble Plug & Play session. During your session you can ask for help with anything outside of the computer. They can install your gear, tune your system for the best performance or help with issues that fall into the "grey area" between your computer, software and hardware.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
