Audeum Digital Audio Workstations are premier audio computers designed and optimized specifically for live and studio recording environments.

What an Audeum system is not. An Audeum system is not just a bunch of computer components thrown together in a case and called an "audio computer." What an Audeum system is. An Audeum system is a premier audio computer designed specifically for live and studio recording environments. Each Audeum system is built from the ground up and designed of hand picked and tested components with stability, performance and expandability in mind. With no detail left unthought-of of, every component from the caseís feet to the operating system has been selected and/or optimized for audio use.
Audeum systems carry a warranty to be proud of. All new Audeum systems are warranted against defects in materials for 2 years and because Audeum builders are so confident in their builds, workmanship is warranted for a lifetime. For added peace of mind, extended "bumper-to-bumper" material warranties can be purchased. Audeum stands behind their systems and their warranty policy reflects it.
Audeum Upgrade Program
Audeum systems are deigned for the greatest amount of flexibility, expandability and longevity. However, as we all know computer technology advances rapidly and about the time you settle into your new system you find out it is outdated and the components have become obsolete. With this in mind Audeum has created the Audeum Upgrade Program. Audeum customers have the ability, at any time, to upgrade their systems component with the newest components available on the market for nothing more than the cost of the parts and shipping. Thatís right labor is 100% free!
Audeum Customer Support
Plain and simple, if you own an Audeum system then support is nothing more than a phone call away. However, Audeum has taken it one step further and every Audeum owner is given a private support phone number to use if they ever have a problem or need an answer to a question. If you call you will speak directly with an IT professional who can handle your problem immediately and you will not be routed around and ultimately placed on "death" hold. Best of all phone support is free and unlimited.
Audeum Technical Expertise
Unlike other companies, every Audeum system is hand built and tested in house by a certified Audeum technician. Audeum technicians are more than just builders they experts in the field specializing in high performance system. Audeum technicians are more than just builders they are available to assist customers with system design and integration, implementation, trouble shooting, and any other technical questions customers may have.
Because Audeum cares about keeping your system optimized and running at its best, all Audeum owners can send their system into Audeum for a regular service tune-up. Each service includes running system diagnostics and checking for problems, thorough cleaning of case and components, disk cleaning and defrags, system backups, driver and software updates, and optimizing the OS with the latest tweaks. The small cost of this service by far outweighs the years of flawless performance you will receive from your Audeum system.
What We Think
"Using an off-the-shelf computer for your audio is a fool's bet. It's a fact, the PCs purchased at your local big-box retailer (or the online version of it) come loaded with junk software and the operating system exists in it's most bloated state. The salespeople and their techs know little to nothing about professional recording systems and the manufacture worked as hard as it could to use the cheapest parts available - NOT the best for audio or the most reliable. Sure, it might cost less. But time and sanity are money and it is most unwise to risk being left all alone to suffer the computer issues you create for yourself with a 'name-brand' computer.
"I've been at this for a while and have worked in professional studios and facilities where the margin for error just doesn't exist - if the computer fails, causing the union musicians to get paid for another week's worth of work, then somebody is going to get sued. I've also run my own studio and done projects that are a little less formal. I've built my own computers and I've had 'store bought' computers and cannot even begin to relate the number of gray-hairs I now have amidst the patches of missing hair where I have pulled my hair trying to resolve problems on a time crunch. I've lived and learned... and in my learning I have learned that for anyone wanting a quality and purpose built machine, Ladia and his line of Audeum computers will save you a ton of unnecessary stress and computer drama.
Audeum machines are built with reliability and dependability as the cornerstones of design. With your computer you will receive the industry's best warranty and service package (we dare you to compare) along with a determination to ensure you have the very best... and the quietest. Audeum computers are extremely quiet. So quiet that many people forget that the machine is even in the same room.
One of the most valuable things to you is that Audeum is located in the same building as Front End Audio. So, we have instant access and interaction with Ladia when your turnkey system is being built. We work together to configure and test your system eliminating the lines between where your system is designed and where it is finally assembled and optimized.
And as mentioned before Front End Audio builds Turnkey Audio Systems with a high performance Audeum computer at the core. If you're after something elaborate, we can do it. We carry the finest equipment from the very best manufacturers. Give us a call to find out what we can do for you."
