Audio BLOXX – the compact workstation for your creative ideas

Be it mastering, tracking or mixing, Audio BLOXX workstations are built for ultra-stable, 24/7 operation in any audio-focused environment. We designed and built Audio BLOXX to fit in a compact chassis made from top-quality aluminum, housing the same powerful professional-grade technology as our top-of-the-range audio systems.

Quiet power

Let your creativity off the leash: Audio BLOXX systems use innovative cooling technologies similar to our larger pro audio workstations. They are barely audible, even when you are pushing the system to its limits.
