Each time I consult a composer’s technical needs (including for myself), the PC choice is easy: The Big DAWg™ from HDA. Bruce and Armen’s attention to detail is ridiculous, their Windows tuning is flawless, and their support is incredibly fast and personable — not that you’re likely to need it.

The Big DAWg™ is a beast! At a time when sample libraries are getting bigger and better it’s great to have a machine that does the heavy lifting so I can focus less on RAM allocation and more on writing music. The standards of quality and attention to detail from Bruce and Armen are second to none!

Thank DAWg for the reliability! Great follow-up customer service from HDA with lightning-fast response times, essential when communicating between different time zones around the world.

The Road DAWg™ is the most powerful piece of equipment for keyboard players on the planet. It is by far the fastest and most dependable piece of hardware for playing virtual instruments on tour that I’ve ever known… Plus, the HDA team are great guys and their customer support is amazing!  You guys rock!

I’m using close to 1,000 tracks in my template which is being powered by my Dual XEON™ Big DAWg™ and it’s not even breaking a sweat!  The Big DAWg™, without a doubt, is the most powerful, efficient and cost-effective sample playback device I have ever used.  I was able to rid myself of several other computers, audio interfaces and cables to streamline my studio.  Heavy Digital Audio’s customer service and support has been nothing but the best!

After a lot of planning I finally had my dream setup in mind, but it took the expertise of Heavy Digital Audio to make it real. Bruce and Armen helped me to customize the already crazy powerful Big DAWg™ and designed a machine that allowed me a much more efficient and productive workflow. I haven’t been able to crash it once since I bought it.  Besides their expertise, professionalism and attention to detail I would recommend Heavy Digital Audio for their commitment to long-term support. For me this is even more valuable than the amazing systems they build.

567 MIDI tracks in my new template. Not even a hiccup. Running smoother than movie theater butter.

The Big DAWg™ is the most composer-friendly power machine I’ve ever experienced in my 24-year career as a professional composer.  For a busy composer and orchestrator like myself, time is the most precious and finite asset.  In composing with sample libraries, the most frustrating aspects have been waiting for templates to load and latency in printing audio. Heavy Digital Audio’s Big DAWg™ super-computer offers a stellar solution.  Working with it feels as if I have a Ferrari in my studio: blazing fast, powerful, intuitive.  What a power tool!  The service Armen and Bruce provide could not get better.  They completely customize every PC for the needs of their clients, create templates, help with everything. All I needed to do was hit the power button and go!

The Heavy Digital team is really the reason I chose the Big DAWg™.  Anyone can build you a computer – but 6 months from now, your BIOS, system versions, and application revisions are all out of date.  Alone, do you risk facing the pitfalls of unsupported applications yet to be updated, or do you simply not update, and risk antiquation in a few years…?  Heavy Digital takes care of this, looking after my Big DAWg’s™ hardware and software condition – and my mental heath as a result!

Heavy Digital Audio’s Big DAWg™ allowed me to reduce the number of computers in my rig from 10 to 3. It became practical, for the first time, for my assistant to have a setup that is nearly identical to mine. The simplicity and reliability of this configuration – not to mention the reduction in noise and heat in my machine room – have made this investment one of the better ones I’ve made in recent years. Armen and Bruce are knowledgeable, responsive, and possess great personal integrity – crucial factors when doing business with a boutique company.
