Musicmesse 2009: Cakewalk announced an update to the Roland Ethernet Audio Communication (REAC) driver for the SONAR REAC Recording System.
Driver Version 1.1 offers new functionality, including:
- Vista x64 support
- Compatibility with SONAR Producer versions 7 and 8
- RSS M-400 1.5 and 2.0 firmware support
- RSS M-48 Live Personal Monitor support
Included in this update is full support for Vista x64 operating systems and SONAR 8 Producer. REAC customers can now upgrade to the x64 version of Windows Vista to access the improved processing efficiency and extended RAM that the OS provides.
The SONAR REAC driver update also includes support for audio monitoring through SONAR V-Studio 700’s VS-700R audio interface. By combining RSS V-Mixing Systems and Digital Snakes with SONAR V-Studio 700, customers can now have a fully integrated, cost-effective, end-to-end solution that takes their productions from live events through post production and delivery.
REAC technology allows up to 40 simultaneous channels of audio to be recorded into SONAR through any RSS V-Mixing System or Digital Snake, via a single Cat5e cable to a PC Ethernet port connection. Once recording is finished, customers can simply shift into production mode to take full advantage of SONAR V-Studio 700’s extensive capabilities for editing, mixing, mastering and delivery of their productions.
The REAC Driver 1.1 update is available as a free download to registered SONAR REAC Recording System customers with Windows XP 32-bit and native Vista (32- and 64-bit) at http://www.cakewalk.com/Support/REAC/Default.aspx
