New Mac mini with up to 64GB RAM
After a long wait, Apple finally released the potentially ultimate Mac for Pro Tools. Add a new, affordable Thunderbolt 3 chassis for a HDX card and you have a fast and quiet Pro Tools Ultimate system.
The new space gray Mac mini comes with quad- and 6-core 8th-generation Intel Core processors with Turbo Boost Speeds up to 4.6GHz, making it 5 times faster than the previous generation, and what’s super interesting for Pro Tools users; it rocks up to 64GB of SO-DIMM RAM.
Internal SSD is 4 times faster than previous storage drives and the new Mac mini also comes with Apple’s new T2 security chip, Gigabit Ethernet, 4x Thunderbolt ports with support for two 4K displays, HDMI 2.0, headphone jack, and two USB-A ports, along with a 10Gb Ethernet option.
Please not that it is not qualified yet for Pro Tools and the qualification process can take few weeks. Contact us for details.

DAD AX32 Dante/AES67 Card Coming Soon
We always saw DAD AX32 / Avid MTRX not as an I/O but as a platform. They are the heart of a modern recording studio, replacing tons of dedicated equipment like AD/DA, Pro Tools HDX I/O, MADI I/O, Dante I/O, Mic Pres, Monitor Controller, patchbay, you name it. Lately we have done many multi-studio installations for TV and radio with networked AX32s and MTRXs and they don’t only work like a charm, they also sound fantastic.
After the recently unveiled revolutionary SPQ Speaker Processing card DAD today announced another radical add-on for AX32, a Dante/AES67 expansion card with 128 channels, real time sample rate conversion per channel as well as redundant ports for maximum reliability. If you stuff an AX32 full with these cards and use the on-board 64ch Dante card, you end up with a 1088-channel box, adding extreme connectivity, perfect for complex, networked installations.
Contact us for more info on availability and pricing.
