A simple solution to load and playback your biggest sample libraries on one machine inside the studio and live on stage. Increase your workflow with one of our custom built Pro Digital Audio Workstations.

Each DAWg™ is an extremely powerful PC-based sample player that utilizes Vienna Ensemble Pro as a host and is custom built for your needs.  All MIDI, Audio, Clock, Tempo Sync and automation are passed over LAN and controlled by your host/master computer, running the sequencer of your choice (Logic, Nuendo, Cubase, Digital Performer, ProTools, etc.).  Our machines connect to your system with one Ethernet cable and a gigabit switch!
