6th Gen Intel CPUs
Windows  64-bit opens the door to using up to 128GB of system memory. Load up all the sounds you want and then add some more, just because you can.


Your 64-bit instruments will thank you.

Virtual Instruments that use a file-based sound library work by loading the beginning of a sound into system memory. Complex sound libraries are capable of loading up to 300+ voices into memory. With 8GB or more, the Rok Box OB-1 ensures that playback happens smoothly from the first note all the way up until the final fade out.


Smooth playback is what Rok Box OB-1 is all about. Rok Box OB-1 comes with up to two dedicated hard drives to keep your files streamlined and guarantee consistent results everyday.
