Read what Rain Customers think about their Element workstation:

"[Element Core i7] is by far the most powerful PC ever to grace the CM test bench."

Lee du-Caine
Computer Music Magazine

"I've been using the Element computer for recording for 2 years now, and I really enjoy the craftsmanship of the product."

Joseph O.

"Add one more happy customer to the list. The inside of my new Element is gorgeous and everything is well laid out. Performance is as I'd hoped and there's virtually no noise at all from the PC. Quite a neat trick.

Thank you guys very much."

Rick F.

"The computer is running great!!! I use it to run Pro Tools currently using it to produce audio design for a video game, I do audio production for radio on it as well, and run Ableton Live on it to produce Hip Hop beats for a company in Europe. Thanks again! Iíve already recommended it to several audio producers which I work with!"

Bryan A.
Producer

"I bought a Turnkey system from you guys last year (Element), and i'm very very happy with it. It's been a very solid system for me, and although i do lots of orchestral arrangements with big sessions and tons of plug ins, it doesn't crash on me at all... as far as the computer performance, i don't have any complaints.

I mostly do orchestral arrangements, but i also do pop arrangements as well. I use Finale first to score the arrangement, and then import it into Pro Tools as a MIDI file. Then , i record that MIDI file into an audio track using samples libraries and plug in, and that's where this system comes very handy."
