Cakewalk now shipping SONAR V-Studio 700

Cakewalk has announced that SONAR V-Studio 700 is now shipping worldwide.

V-Studio 700Shipping the SONAR V-Studio 700 marks a new era of Cakewalk branded hardware and software music production solutions. The next generation V-Studio line of products is built on a legacy of Roland's renowned hardware expertise and the power and flexibility of Cakewalk's SONAR Producer DAW. SONAR V-Studio 700 addresses the gap between under-powered "budget" solutions and over-priced competitive solutions by offering a compelling, feature-rich music production system that is accessible to a broad range of users. The SONAR V-Studio 700 simply provides the best software/hardware integration and control available today, according to Cakewalk.

Finely-tuned and tightly integrated hardware and software
SONAR V-Studio 700 matches SONAR 8 Producer with the VS-700C V-Studio Console multifunction control surface and the VS-700R V-Studio I/O, equipped with the onboard Roland Fantom VS Hardware synthesizer, which includes ARX expansion capability.

SONAR V-Studio 700 includes:

  • SONAR 8 Producer Digital Audio Workstation.
  • The full version of Rapture Virtual Instrument.
  • The VS-700C V-Studio Console.
  • The VS-700R V-Studio I/O.
  • The integrated Roland Fantom VS hardware synthesizer.

VS-700C V-Studio Console
The hardware centerpiece is the VS-700C V-Studio Console. The VS-700C, designed jointly by Cakewalk and Roland, offers the very best hardware control of software, with much deeper integration into SONAR's editing and mixing capabilities than any off the shelf control surface.

The VS-700C also sets itself apart from other competitive hardware control surfaces with dedicated implementation of ACT (Active Controller Technology). ACT dramatically changes the way users interface with SONAR by automatically remapping controls to what has the focus.

VS-700R V-Studio I/O
The VS-700R V-Studio I/O audio interface was designed to provide the perfect complement to SONAR's industry leading internal 64-bit audio quality, and to provide extensive I/O options to take advantage of SONAR's flexible bussing capabilities and integration with external hardware.

Preamps and converters are the gateway to your system, and the VS-Studio 700 includes the very best mic preamps and converter technology Roland has to offer. The preamps are also digitally-controlled. This lets you adjust preamp gain from the same control surface where you mix, and save gain settings as presets.

Roland Fantom VS and ARX expansion capability
The VS-700R also includes the Roland Fantom VS hardware synthesizer which adds to the full complement of inspiring synthesizers that are included in SONAR 8. The Fantom VS operates as a hardware VSTi instrument with complete access over all parameters accessible via a dedicated software plug-in interface and editor within SONAR. Because the Fantom VS is DSP powered within the VS-700R I/O, it offers zero latency and CPU loading.

SONAR V-Studio 700 provides even more hardware synthesis capabilities with an onboard ARX Expansion Slot. Just like with the Fantom VS, when you plug in an ARX Series Expansion Board you get a second hardware VSTi instrument that integrates seamlessly into SONAR's workflow. Each ARX expansion board has its own dedicated custom graphic interface and powerful editor.

The ARX-01 Drums and ARX-02 Electric Piano expansion boards powered by Roland's SuperNATURAL sound technology are currently available. A new board, the ARX-03 Brass, will be available March, 2009.
