Livebook LE - A Nifty Little Groover
Music on the moveVersatility is the name of the game. If you don't want to be constrained by the physicality of a studio then why not take your studio with you. For recording at home or in the field the Livebook LE enables you to focus on your creativity rather than having to worry about the technology.
Entry level only in priceYou may have noticed the tempting price tag. Seems low for a dedicated audio laptop. It's true that the chassis is a bit more basic but don't be fooled into thinking it doesn't have the grunt where you need it most. This is dual Core i3, i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge technology with enough power to run intense projects or to manage live performance with audio and video. It has solid, stable power enabling you be as creative as you need to be.
Glitch free audio performanceLivebook LE has been tested with a whole bunch of new and old USB audio interfaces and passes every test with flying colours. Whether you need to plug in your old USB1.1 interface or want to invest in one of the new breed of USB2 interfaces then Livebook LE is happy to accommodate. Our expertise with Windows 7 means that the OS is tweaked to perfection giving you trouble free recording, and pristine playback.
Geared for giggingLivebook LE wants to perform. It likes nothing better than being the platform on which you demonstrate your talent. Plug in your controllers, your guitar, your headphones; load up your software, your instruments, your plug-ins and get ready to fly. The glossy screen is perfect for low light conditions, bright and with deep colour separation. The footprint is neat enough not to hog the performance space and light enough not to be a burden on the move. HDMI and VGA outputs mean that you can run analogue or digital video signals out to data projectors and monitors running your entire show from the same Livebook LE.
Livebook LE is based upon the same technology as our award winning Nimbus Z. You have two or four processor cores Turbo boosting up to 3.5GHz, up to 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3 memory and a super fast SSD hard drive as standard. This gives you fabulous performance in Windows and multi-track recording in and out without breaking a sweat. The 15.6" high definition screen is fed by Intel's HD video technology offering crystal clear graphics, movie playback and even high frame rates in games.
At this price, with this technology and Rain's support, the Livebook LE is quite a find.
And to round it all off, pick up a classic bag and travel in style.
