System Overview

The FWX299 digital audio workstation is our high end i7 or i9 based studio solution for artists who are really pushing the limits. Designed initially as the ideal solution for VSL users who require a very sizable amount of memory, this base system with the 9800X CPU solution offers 8 cores of processing power along with hyper threading giving a total of 16 logical cores to power your plugins. As with all of our digital audio workstations, noise levels are kept low and unobtrusive thanks to careful component choices including large and slow fans on the case, cooler and PSU options. This digital audio workstation also has 8 drive bays to allow you plenty of storage space for all of your sounds, samples and programs to be stored. The graphic card options allow up to3 monitors per card to help give you more flexibility in your work flow and further expansion slots allow us to increase this even further if required, meaning that this system can be expanded to meet just about any requirement you might have from an digital audio workstation PC in your studio environment.

Customer Reviews

3XS FWX299 - Digital Audio Workstation is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful and quiet machine I'm impressed by how sturdy and well designed the case is and how quiet it is when running. It was very carefully packaged for delivery and arrived in impeccable condition. Setup was simple and it boots very quickly even after I have installed my apps on it. The support were quick to respond to my queries and each stage of it's production was clearly communicated so I'd definitely use Scan again. My only criticism would be that for such an expensive workstation it should support USB-C, especially as that is the standard the most of the industry has moved towards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good PC for DAW Recording I bought this for DAW audio recording using Cubase. I was mainly after a quiet PC so I can record vocals next to it. The fans on my Dell have worn and were getting very noisy. I was informed all along as the PC was build and tested. It arrived quickly and well packaged to prevent damage. I had to open the PC to remove the bubble wrap installed internally to stop components moving around, and install my firewire card. The PC is well build with everything installed neatly and professionally. It was properly set up and tested and worked straight out of the box. In use its virtually silent, and certainly quiet enough for the mic to not pick up the fan noise. I have a song with a load of plugins that the Dell chip could not cope with, and I had to freeze most of the channels. The new PC runs it fine at around 55%, and its still quiet, so all good. All in all I am very happy with the purchase and with Scans set up. Considered against the Dell PCs we buy at work, its also pretty good value. Recommended and would buy again.

Number of spare PCIe slots

I need a PCIe slot for my sonnet allegro FW800 card for my Apollo Quad which I already have and can install. I also need 1394 firewire connection for my Yamaha N12 and I think I would order the Lycom card fitted. With this and the graphics card, how many slots does the machine come with and do I have enough space to add the sonnet card?
Asked by: Tronic
Hi, With regards to how many PCIe lane's you have left, it depends on what GPU you will be installing. You should have left with three PCIe lanes for the Sonnet FW800 (with a GPU covering 2 lanes) With a GPU that is only covering one lane, you should have 4 lanes available for the Sonnet FW800. You should have enough PCIe lanes available for the Sonnet FW800. I hope this helps. Kind Regards,
