Ringwood, NJ (May 26, 2009)–Rain Recording has introduced Dragon Edition, a computer workstation tailored specifically to audio production for game development.
This special edition to the company’s Solstice line of music computers is housed in a crimson red aluminum skin and is powered by AMD’s new Dragon platform to provide graphics and processing performance allowing the composer to experience the game just as the user would.
Solstice Dragon Edition aims to address the needs of the game developer community–specifically, sound designers and composers who require not only a stable audio creation platform, but also the ability to test and deploy on a system that mirrors a gamer’s own experience.
Rain Recording CEO Kevin Jacoby explains, “With the game industry now rivaling Hollywood, we recognize the need for tools that address the unique challenges of the game development community. We’re truly excited to announce Solstice Dragon Edition, the result of Rain’s partnership with award-winning composers who score some of the hottest games in the world like Batman and Grand Theft Auto.”
Based on a platform developed by AMD for gaming performance, Solstice Dragon Edition combines the most powerful Phenom II 955 X4 quad core processor with a RAID 0 array of high-performance drives and up to 16GB of low latency memory. To provide the highest level of graphics performance, users can choose up to two ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 Terascale Graphics Engines for a high-definition visual experience and superior 3D rendering.
Rain Recording designs and manufactures computer systems and peripherals optimized for high-performance audio and video applications, including recording, mixing, mastering, post production and performance.
