First Look: Cakewalk Sonar V-Studio 700

Cakewalk, in collaboration with Roland, has introduced SONAR V-Studio 700, the flagship product in its “next generation” V-Studio line of Cakewalk branded hardware and software solutions. 

SONAR V-Studio 700 includes:

  • SONAR 8 Producer + the full version of Rapture
  • The VS-700C V-Studio Console
  • The VS-700R V-Studio I/O
  • The Integrated Roland Fantom VS hardware synthesizer
  • Direct control of EDIROL video hardware such as the DV-7 line of nonlinear video editors and other hardware with V-Link support

“The original Roland V-Studio and VS products were groundbreaking in that they provided powerful digital recording capabilities to musicians with an easy to use hardware interface,” said Hidekazu Tanaka, President of Roland Corporation “With the advent of PC-based recording, times and musician’s needs have changed, but a few things have stayed the same. Musicians still want something easy to use that offers superior sound. In working with Cakewalk on the next generation V-Studio we wanted to create a recording solution that kept those goals in mind while innovating in new and exciting ways. The integration of video hardware control is one of those ways, deep hardware-based control of PC-based editing is another. We are happy to announce that SONAR V-Studio has met and exceeded those goals. It is the perfect successor to the V-Studio legacy.”
