Hardware

Back It Up with eSATA 3.0
A dedicated eSATA port gives you the power to stream your media to and from an external hard drive using the same bandwidth as your internal drive, which makes it fast. It is a reliable choice when you are bringing in a new session to edit, mix and master. The eSATA port offers high-speed streaming up to 3 Gb/s with more throughput and less drag on the processor.
High-Speed USB 2.0 and 3.0 Drives
Plug in your USB 3.0 external hard drive and stream your audio at super-high speed, up to 3 Gb/s with no glitches or drop-outs. Use USB 2.0 port for your audio interface, DJ controllers, keyboards, mice and printers.
Keyboard and Trackpad with Gesture Control
The soft touch keys and a built-in numeric keyboard give you instant access to your memory points and transport controls. The new trackpad on LiveBook A2 features multi-touch gesture control. This allows you to use one, two, three or four fingers to point, click, rotate and navigate quickly and efficiently. It is an innovative way to take control of your music.

Design

Quiet Cool Design
