Audio production sure has changed. What used to require a tape deck, recording console, outboard processors, and instruments can now be accomplished on a laptop. You can create productions "in-the-box," that is inside of your computer, that rival pro studios. Sweetwater has been using computers for music productions since the days of the Atari ST (if you're under 40, Google that - we'll wait), and when it comes to spec'ing a computer for music, we're experts. We've researched every type of CPU, RAM, and hard drive on the planet, and we know which computer will work best for you.
In the world of computers, there are a lot of choices. Mac or PC? Desktop or laptop? And then there are the peripherals. Whatever you do, don't trust the guy at the computer store - he's a computer expert, not a recording engineer. Just because a computer can make short work of Battlefield 1 doesn't mean that it's suitable for recording music. At Sweetwater, our on-site 100,000-square-foot warehouse is filled with audio-optimized computers of every shape and size. Our Creation Stations are custom-built PC desktops that can tackle any audio challenge you throw at them.

Whatever your audio situation is, we'll get you into the computer that best meets your needs and budget.
