Equipped with 8th-generation i5 or i7 CPUs, a full HD screen, room for up to a whopping 6 TB of SSD storage and up to 32 GB of RAM, this is the lightweight workhorse with enough power to meet all your DJ needs for the foreseeable future. Extensive preliminary tests have shown that even the most basic configuration can handle minimal audio driver latency settings - with an unbeatable price tag.
This machine comes with a powerful 8th-generation i7 CPU, maxes out at 6TB SSD storage and 32 GB RAM and, unlike the SLIM 14, has a powerful dedicated graphics adapter: the NVIDIA GTX 1060, upgradeable to a GTX 1070 MaxQ. Stick with the 144 Hz, full HD screen - or go with 4K if you need it. We recommend this unit to producers who perform live and DJs who want to incorporate video material in their shows.
This is the grand champion of performance laptops, capable of handling anything you could possibly want to throw at it - while maintaining the 15” form factor. How about a top-of-the-line i9 CPU with 8 cores boosting to 5GHz, up to 64 GB of RAM and a crazy 12 TB of SSD storage? Maybe an NVIDIA GTX 1080 for multi-screen output? Get ready for high-end performance to meet your high-end demands.
We get it: all you want is to just fire up your laptop and start rocking. That’s why we did all the hard work for you in advance! Every SCHENKER Audio Edition laptop comes with its own, hand-crafted installation of Windows 10 Professional that only includes the bare necessities: up-to-date drivers for the hardware components in your machine and a whole lot of system tweaks that ensure peak performance with no effort on your part.
Our product portfolio covers every form factor and performance demand you may have - from the super-portable ultrabook to the ridiculously powerful desktop replacement laptop, and everything inbetween. The recommended configurations are fully flexible and most components can be upgraded at a later date as well. We’re ready to help you make sure that your machine stands the test of time!
We’re committed to making sure that every professional who chooses to rely on our machines can really rely on them. To that end, we are working closely with leading industry brands and artists who use our products, keeping up with third-party software and hardware updates - sometimes even pre-release. Ask our support team about compatiblity with your current DJ or production setup!
Not a fan of hubs and adapters? Great - neither are we! Especially not on stage. The machines in the SCHENKER Audio Edition line-up feature regular USB-A ports for connecting your audio hardware, in addition to nearly all other standard connectors you could possibly have a use for. Find out how little you’ll have to worry about by navigating to the “Technical Specifications” tab on each product page - or drop us a line.
Don’t let the “Audio Edition” label fool you. These laptops were by no means designed exclusively for DJs and music producers. The SCHENKER DTR 15, for example, can be fitted with the most high-end of components available on the market. Are you a VJ, motion designer, interactive or VR content creator in need of some serious firepower? Playing AAA games after hours? Don’t worry - we’ve got you covered.
We appreciate it if you stick with our factory branding - but you don’t have to. We do custom work in-house, allowing you to make your machine truly yours. Want your full colour logo printed directly onto the cover instead? Done. Laser engraving on the space bar? No problem. Contact us about your ideas and we’ll tell you how much can be done with your chosen SCHENKER Audio Edition model.
Understandably, a lot of potential SCHENKER Audio Edition users won’t be too familiar with Windows itself. Don’t worry - we’ve got your back! Our knowledge base, launching February 2019, will feature a growing collection of step-by-step guides and short videos covering common topics and use cases. Remember that our award-winning support team is ready for you anytime - in fact, every single one of your questions helps us improve, so: ask away!
Wouldn’t it be great if a support person knew that Traktor has nothing to do with agriculture? We think so, too. That’s why we’ve got actual Audio Edition users running support for these machines. Don’t be afraid to get technical with your questions - we’re getting technical on a daily basis. Our knowledge base will also feature a frequently updated list of hardware and software that has been successfully tested in live conditions with each machine. Because that’s how it should be done.
One of the common pet peeves among digital live performers are unwanted system updates. This was our reason for choosing Windows 10 Professional as the basis for our custom installations. Unlike the Home version commonly found on off-the-shelf laptops, this version allows in-depth control over your machine’s update behaviour. If you’re touring, you can completely suspend any updates for a total of up to 35 days. You can also define Active Hours - a time slot of up to 18 hours each day during which updates can’t even be triggered manually.
