Hardware NAMM: Music Computing CoreMC Gen3 computer



The CoreMC computer can be equipped with up to dual Xeon 8-core processors (16-cores total), 768GB of RAM, 21TB of hard drive storage, video cards and audio interfaces. Based on the Windows 8 (64-bit) operating system, CoreMC is capable of running any Windows compatible software for music production, HD video editing or even gaming.

Each CoreMC is housed in a black brushed aluminum chassis equipped with four oversized 140mm fans providing ample airflow, yet able to rotate at reduced speeds for near silent operation. A front name plate is part of the design and acts as a baffle to further reduce operational noise. Extras include removable dust filters to keep the interior of the system clean, shock mounting for hard drives and optical drives to reduce noise and vibration, and anti-vibration pads for the power supply. For those needing to overclock the system, four coolant hose ports are provided on the rear of the chassis with star grommets.

Rack versions of the CoreMC are available in a compact 4U (15.25" depth) chassis as well as a full size version with redundant power supplies.

Go to micro center buy a diy book and you can build a comp 16 core 3 ghz, 32 gig of ram, 4 tbs of storage for around 1200 bucks. oh and put it in a nice rack mountable server case.

Yes you can but Xeon cores are a little more expensive.

I bet it still can't run East West's Hollywood Strings and Brass very well...

Still, you can build a similar system right now for much less than their up-charged prices.

Its an interesting concept.. I dunno about video, but in terms of music production, "track freeze." Need storage? Cloud.

Anyways, you can customize a really descent HP.com machine that, "has plenty of power."

The saved money, could then be spent on something like Focusrites Rednet. Which is going to give you ultra low latency, and great recording performance.. Which is way more important than, "16 core xeon."

You probably need 80 instances of Reaktor ( about 5 per core ) to max out 16 xeons... Who is making a track with 80 reaktors??

I think u are wrong.

There are some high end plugins which requair a powerful computer, try DCam Synth Squade at 8x over sampling or Uhe Diva at "Divine" setting and u will eat ur words back. Also Reaktor can give a hard time on CPU if u use a very complex patches. Also there are new software comming in pipe line which migh requair a powerful computer.

Also if u record at high sample rate like 96khz then u need twise the power of 48 khz....

And it will fail in 3 month....

also i am not tolking that it will be noisy as jet plain

p.s.
I think u provide miss information, I do not think that u can build a computer with a current Xeons with 16 core for 1200$
The CPUs itself in reteil store will cost more then that
