The best Surface features for musicians

If you're a musician looking for the best laptop to record, mix, and produce your tunes, consider a Surface. Its touchscreen flexibility and versatile software help you take your music to the next level, while Dolby technology ensures that every note comes across true. See the features that make a Surface unique for music production, no matter what genre you’re playing.

High-end performance

When choosing a laptop for music production, one of the most important factors to consider is performance. You need a laptop that can handle advanced software and multiple tracks without lag. Microsoft Surface devices are powered by the latest multi-core Intel® processors, making them perfect for working on complex projects. And with devices like Surface Laptop 5, offering up to 19 hours of battery life* with typical use, you can work on your music for hours from anywhere without running out of juice.

Versatile software

Surface devices come preloaded with Windows 11, which is another great advantage. In addition to the upgraded productivity and entertainment features in Windows 11, Microsoft App Store offers popular music creation software that can match your genre and style. Create, record, mix, and master your music all from the comfort of your Surface device. Built-in Dolby Audio Premium™ processing means that every note and beat will sound clear, especially with Surface earbuds and headphones.

Innovative design and accessories

Surface is known for innovation. Surface Studio 2+, for example, has a 28” touchscreen display that tilts to use as a digital drafting table—which is perfect for drawing and composing. Enjoy pen-on-paper feel as you sketch out chord progressions and move tracks around on the touchscreen with Surface Slim Pen 2. Use Surface Dial to control various aspects of your music production, such as adjusting volume, panning, and scrolling through tracks, all with a simple turn of the dial. Make music your way with the wide range of Surface accessories.
