The Scan FA99i is designed for both the more experienced user as well as professional studios, who may find themselves working with cutting edge tools and synths that may be able to overwhelm lesser powered machines. The market leading X99 platform offers outstanding performance capable of elevating your workflow to whole new levels. Based around our Intel i7 X99 audio configuration, the Scan FA99i takes the specification of our most popular high end configuration and gives you the ideal base to work with in your studio.
The FA99i specification comes complete with a 6 core + hyperthreading Intel i7 6800K CPU offering perhaps the best overall raw power to cost ratio to be found in the Intel range, offering a performance level that will see this machine tackling you projects with ease for years to come.
During our initial in house validation phase we test with all of the popular audio sequencers including industry leaders such as Cubase, Pro Tools, Sonar, Studio One, Reaper, Ableton & Bitwig to ensure the widest compatibility straight out of the box, meaning that you set it up with your audio interface & software of choice and be ready to go with the absolute minimum of fuss.
To install your applications on, we include a fast Samsung Evo 500GB SSD, which comes with your OS on and is ideal for running your sequencer and projects from, along with an additional 2TB mechanical drive for storage and sample libraries. Of course many users wish to migrate over older project drives or prefer to make sure that additional storage can be added the future as required, so we made sure that this case has 5 more drive bays, making it extremely easy to accommodate any future storage expansions that you may wish to carry out.
Other key features include 16GB of Corsair memory, which is suitable for most typical projects although once again we've made sure to leave plenty of room for extra expansion, allowing you to expand in years to come. The included Nvidia 730 passive graphics card supports 3 simultaneous outputs over D-Sub (VGA) / HDMI / DVI allowing you plenty of output options and plenty of workspace to help optimize your workflow.
As with all of our studio orientated systems the performance to noise level is a key concern for us, where we always strive to ensure we get the maximum amount of performance with the least amount of disruptive background noise ensuring the performance is seen but not heard. In this FA99i specification, the system naturally runs warmer due to the class leading CPU's requiring more power than the low and midrange chips. To ensure this doesn't affect your workflow, we go with class leading cooling to match the CPU, with aftermarket cooling from AeroCool and Sycthe which all helps keep your system running at its very best.
This system is absolutely ideal for anyone really pushing the envelope, be it recording and editing on the fly or working on projects completely in the box, handling post production work or even scoring to film and video, the Scan FA99i has the power to handle all of those scenarios and many more all whilst being ready to ship to you today.
