3XS FA7i

Our 3XS FA7i system is based around the latest Intel i7 10700K 8C/16T CPU solution. As with all of our audio systems, the models found in our ready to ship series are all fully tested and configured to ensure the widest compatibility possible with common studio software programs and to ensure the smoothest of experiences when running your studio's crucial tools and applications.

The specification of this system makes it a great mid-range all-rounder, capable of multi-racking, editing and post-production small to medium-sized projects. With a full-sized motherboard, you have plenty of expansion possibilities, including the option to add in Thunderbolt support If you are looking to record yourself, a band or make a start on electronic production this is a great value solution.

The system has 16GB of Corsair memory included, which we find is ample for a lot of production duties carried out on this level of machine. We do however ensure that we leave you two additional memory slots free, just so that if you wish to expand further in the future then you will have an easy upgrade route ready and waiting.

We also include a fast 500GB Samsung 860 EVO SSD for your included Windows OS installation, which means that you should also have plenty of space in which to setup your sequencer of choice, as well as all of your plugins. Alongside the OS SSD, we also include an additional 1TB Seagate Barracuda mechanical drive for general storage and your sample libraries.

The 3XS FA7i is pre-built and ready to ship for next-day delivery and comes with Windows 10 Home pre-installed and a premium 3-year warranty.

3XS FA7i Audio Workstation, Intel Core i7 10700K, 16GB DDR4, 500GB SSD, 1TB, Win 10 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy Legit super-happy about this new PC. It's making my music production so much easier... no surprise given that I was previously running my DAW on a nigh-on 10 year old laptop, i guess... but it is an absolute dream. Build quality is top notch, as was the packaging it arrived in. And I look forward to pushing the processors as hard as I can with plugins each time I come to mixdown my hardware tracking. Zero problems so far. Highest possible recommendation! Thank you Scan folks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system for in the box music production I am using Cubase 9 Pro with a Steinberg UR 22mkII Audio interface. The 3XS FA7i Audio Workstation allows me to get latency really low, around 9 milliseconds. I have projects with multiple Orchestral samples and complex synth patches which play with very low CPU usage so there is plenty of headroom for in the box production. The quality of the build is exceptional and the setup was very easy. I have two screens, one plugged into the HDMI socket, the other (a VGA screen) plugged into the display port via a VGA to DisplayPort adapter. It all works really well. It would be nice to have a couple of extra USB ports but this is solved with powered USB splitter boxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I wanted When my aged music studio PC died I knew it was time to take a good look at what was around. Having done a fair amount of research I felt Scan offered me what I required in a new DAW PC. I wasn't disappointed. Beautifully made and is everything that I'd hoped for, running Cubase and multiple plug ins with ease and it's so so quiet. i'd highly recommend this PC and the fantastic service that went with it

64 bit windows

Hi I’m interested in this workstation. I’m still using a few 32 bit plugins within my daw. My current laptop has both 32 bit and 64 bit windows and I bridge the plugins using j bridge. Will I be able to do the same with this system and also the copy of Windows it comes with Regards kirk
Asked by: Kirk
Hi, J-bridge will still work, although from experience it will be the most unstable part of the system. It’s been well over a decade since we got our first 64 OS, so whilst I understand the wish to keep tried and tested plugs around, by this stage any company worth its salt has moved to 64bit plugs a long time ago. So the concern is that any code brought across that is 32bit is unlikely to have been tuned and optimized for newer OS builds. I’d be tempted to say that unless it (the plugin in question) does something 100% unique, I’d looks around for something newer and more efficient. I hope this helps. Kind regards,

Integrated graphics card

How fast is the graphics card?will it play complex games! And can another graphics card be used if needed. Thanks
Asked by: Duck1
This PC has Intel integrated graphics in the CPU which is only suitable for Windows applications and basic games. You could add a graphics card yourself, alternatively we suggest looking at our Pro Audio configurators where you can see a range of workstations which can support a graphics card:
