Intel ESS Justin Lassen and Doyle Donehoo SSD case study

Enhancing Music Production with Intel® Solid-State Drives

Intel® Solid-State Drives (Intel® SSDs) help composers capture creativity by accelerating sample loading and eliminating audio glitches
For musicians who rely on digital audio workstations for composing and recording, traditional hard disk drives can produce significant bottlenecks in the creative workflow. Composers Justin Lassen... and Doyle W. Donehoo found that Intel® SSDs could help accelerate sample library load times and eliminate dropped notes, enabling them to capture creativity whenever it strikes.
• Start working sooner.
Load audio sample libraries faster to facilitate creative spontaneity.
• Eliminate playback errors.
Improve performance of audio sample playback, avoiding dropped notes and glitches and reducing the need for time-consuming workarounds.
• Avoid data loss.

Improve storage reliability to avoid losing compositions and samples.
• Intel® Solid State Drives.
Composers Justin Lassen and Doyle W. Donehoo integrated Intel® SSDs into their music production environments to address key challenges related to audio sample–based music composition.
• Faster time to creativity.
By reducing audio sample load times, Intel SSDs enable the composers to start working quickly, without losing their creative spark.
• Better playback performance.
With significantly better read times than hard disk drives, Intel SSDs can play back sample libraries flawlessly.
• Peace of mind.
The rugged dependability of Intel SSDs helps musicians avoid losing work.
