The Serenity Wavestation Z2

The Serenity Wavestation Z2 offers a quieter way to edit and process your music making it perfect for studio use and as such, it is ideal for both home musicians and professionals working in a studio environment where quietness is important.

Feature Packed Motherboard

Whether you are using headphones, a headset, external or internal speakers, via USB, Wi-Fi, analog output or even HDMI, Nahimic Audio offers you the most engaging listening experience, vibrant and rich with details.

The board also features impedance sensing on the rear output ports, individual PCB Layers for R/L audio Channel and gold audio jacks.

Which CPU do I need?

Given the need for a good processor with any DAW, we are only offering medium to high-end processors with this system. Any processor on offer with this system will be fine for music production however, if you use a lot of virtual instruments and effects, they will have a greater impact on the processor, so do consider a more powerful CPU like the Ryzen 5 5600X or better.

High Speed DDR4 Memory

We offer the Wavestation with DDR4 memory that delivers up to 20% less energy consumption and twice as much density as the previous generation DDR3. DDR4 can help Wavestation users to load their programs faster, increase responsiveness of their system and help them to handle heavy data tasks in a flash.

Today, many musicians are using software based instruments, effects and sample libraries and if you are one of those people then the more memory that you have, the faster and more responsive your audio application will be as the PC will spend less time moving data to and from the SSD.

A good amount of memory to have for a typical home based DAW would 16GB - 32GB, but for more professional users 32 - 64GB (or higher) would be recommended.

Storage Options

While the default system drive offered with the Wavestation may be large enough for many users, it is of course possible to add a much higher capacity drives if required as well as a standard high capacity hard drive to backup your work. Many applications work better if they have a ‘scratch disk’ which they can use as a temporary workspace and Cubase is a good example of this.

Many of today’s large sample libraries take huge amounts of room on your storage device so a high capacity conventional hard drive is recommended and we only offer the drives with a fast 6Gb/s SATA interface in order to help prevent throughput bottlenecks.

Of course adding any component with moving parts like a hard drive will make some noise but to keep noise levels low we recommend using 2.5in drives where possible as these are usually quieter in operation than 3.5in drives.

A better alternative would be to use 2.5in SSDs as they are not only faster than conventional hard disk drives they are also totally silent and SSD prices have fallen hugely in the past few years making them much more affordable.

RAID Storage

Users with more advanced storage needs maybe interested in having two drives configured as a RAID array in order to increase read/write speeds or to provide a more fault-resilient storage system. The two types of RAID we offer are RAID 0 (Striped) and RAID 1 (Mirrored) and they store information in completely different ways.

RAID 0 arrays stripe data and write information across two separate drives and is often used to increase the speed at which data is accessed and retrieved. The downside is that if a drive fails then you lose everything, so it is important to make regular backups.

RAID 1 arrays mirror data and write identical information across both drives simultaneously without a speed penalty. So if one drive fails, no data is lost and the PC stays running. However, if both drives (or more likely the motherboard) fails then you lose everything, so it is still important to backup regularly.

Note: RAID can only be installed with SATA drives. NVMe (M.2) RAID is not supported.

Storage considerations

When specifying your new PC’s storage options using our system configurator below, you will be offered a choice of drives that vary by price and capacity. There are two primary types of storage. A conventional hard disk drive (HDD) offers huge storage capacity for a low price, but it won’t be especially fast and it will generate a certain amount of running noise since it contains a constantly rotating spindle. A solid-state (SSD) or a M2 drive on the other hand, offer tremendous speed and absolutely silent operation, but they cost more than a HDD for any given capacity.

So if you need a lot of storage space (for large quantities of digital media example), then we would recommend an HDD. On the other hand, if you prefer silence and speed (especially boot-up speed), then a SSD or M2 drive would be a better choice. Of course, you can have more than one drive, so you could have the best of both worlds by choosing one of each! We recommend that customers choose a M2 drive as a boot drive that contains the operating system and important programs and a conventional HDD for other data but remember that if you intend to have a totally silent PC, you might want to forgo the HDDs altogether as they will make some noise due to their moving parts.

Note: The super-fast PCIe 4 standard is only supported with this system if the processor has no onboard graphics. In order to use a very fast M.2 drive (like the Samsung 980 Pro) to its full potential, you will need a processor with no onboard graphics and a suitable graphics card.

Clean Build™ Promise

The price of many pre-built PCs these days is often supported by cash kickbacks from software companies who pay hardware manufacturers to pre-install limited or trial versions of their software and then hope that the customer pays to upgrade to the full version. The downside to this approach is that the new PC comes pre-loaded with a lot of “junkware” which bloats the operating system and can cause severe performance degradation.

Here at Quiet PC we believe that customers have every right to expect the best possible performance from a brand new PC, so every system we build comes with our Clean Build™ promise. We install the operating system (if you order one), motherboard drivers, OS updates and Microsoft Security Essentials / Windows Defender - that’s it. You won’t be pestered by pop-ups and nag screens and you can get on with using your new PC immediately without having to uninstall lots of junkware first. Your new machine will boot in super-quick time and will stay running quickly for many months and years to come.

Free hardware support and fully inclusive warranty

We offer free hardware technical support for as long as you own the machine. This support covers any hardware query or problem, including advice on maintenance and upgrades. We regret we can’t offer software support or training so we would recommend contacting the software vendor in this instance.

Our hardware warranty runs for two years and is “collect and return” meaning that you don’t need to worry about getting the machine back to us - we will instruct our courier to collect it from you on a day of your choosing, then after we have checked and repaired it, we will send it back to you by express courier at our expense. In addition, unlike many other PC suppliers, we have an “open-case” policy which means you are free to open the machine and perform your own minor modifications or upgrades without worrying that your warranty might be affected.
