Product Description

Introducing the 3rd generation of the Rain Solstice. Powerful, expandable, affordable and oddly beautiful. Deep inside this aluminum beast is a core that will not quit. They're talking next-generation processor technology, room to expand your memory to an astounding 32 gigabytes and huge hard drive storage - up to 6 terabytes - that runs so fast you'll never hear a glitch again. What's next? Oh yeah: make some music.

Perfectly designed for audio production.

The first thing we do is make sure it works with your creative gear from Pro Tools and Cubase to your favorite audio interface. With an operating system carefully tuned for audio production, you're getting more power out of your software than you ever thought possible. Every inch of Solstice A3 is engineered for making music from the Super Speed USB 3.0 ports to the high bandwidth PCI Express 3.0 expansion slots for your UAD-2 cards. Add in a hot-swap hard drive bay and a new vertical cooling system to keep things Quiet Cool no matter what, and you've got the ultimate platform for endless creativity.

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.

Features:


- Designed and tested for use with music software like Pro Tools, Cubase and SONAR.
- Quiet Cool Design prevents data bottlenecks that lead to audio dropouts and glitches.
- Hot-swap hard drive bay for fast and easy additional high performance storage.
- Powerful Intel "Ivy Bridge" Core i5 quad-core processor and up to 32GB 1600MHz DDR3 memory.

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.
