StudioBLADEs (Gen2) are powered by high-performance computer cores utilizing Intel® Xeon® mission-critical server platform processors that are perfect for today’s demanding musicians and the virtual instruments and software application they use. Options include dual 6-core processors totaling 12-cores, up to 192GB of RAM, and up to 6TB of hard drive storage. The Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) operating system is preconfigured for music production and can run almost any software application or plug-in. Capable of running over 2,000 plug-ins at once, sequencing thousands of tracks simultaneously, and storing millions of sound presets, the StudioBLADE (Gen2) is by far the highest performance keyboard available today.

The first truly scalable music production tool, StudioBLADE provides the user with what they need, when they need it. This means the user can start with the base configuration with a single processor, one memory module and one hard drive, and add more as they need it. The company calls this the Goldilocks Principle and is designed to allow the keyboard to grow with the user.
