Designed to seamlessly control the editing and mixing functions of SONAR 8's software.

The Cakewalk SONAR V-Studio 700 Console—aka VS-700C—gives you extensive control over the editing and mixing functions of your SONAR 8 DAW software. SONAR V-Studio has 9 motorized touch-sensitive faders, full transport controls, 20 rotary encoders/switches, an EQ/Send/ACT section, as well as a T-bar and surround joystick control to take full advantage of SONAR's many parameters and features.

Cakewalk and Roland selected only the very best components in designing V-STUDIO 700. At the heart of the system is SONAR 8 Producer, the leading DAW in the market today. SONAR 8 Producer gives you everything you need for recording, composing, editing, mixing, and mastering. Cakewalk’s flagship instruments, Dimension Pro (included in SONAR 8 Producer) and Rapture, are also part of the software package. The software is intelligently matched with state-of-the-art hardware that meets Roland’s high standards of quality and reliability.

Taken as a whole, V-STUDIO 700 offers the “tactile feel” of working in a traditional studio, but in a way that takes advantage of everything modern technology has to offer. The system represents the best that software and hardware have to offer with amazing control, integration, and sound quality.

Music Production
The V-STUDIO 700 starts your productions off with the best out of the box sounds you’ll find anywhere. With preset track templates, instantly pull up amazing sounds from included virtual instruments like Beatscape, Rapture, Z3TA+ and Dimension Pro. And with the legendary Roland Fantom hardware synth built right into the I/O, you have countless of inspiring instruments to choose from to sculpt your own original beats and sound.

The VS-700C V-STUDIO Console offers hands-on control of your editing without ever having to use your mouse. With tight integration inside of SONAR, you can make precision edits quickly without ever breaking your workflow. And SONAR 8 Producer includes exclusive technologies like AudioSnap, V-Vocal, Smart MIDI Tools, and Active Controller Technology that allow you to make pinpoint edits quickly.

Mixing and Mastering
VS-700C V-STUDIO Console’s familiar hardware interface gives you such deep hands on control of your mixing that you might even forget that you’re working with a computer. And with 49 effects included in SONAR, and a 64-bit mix engine, your final mixes will get that final polish they need.
Post Production and Surround

The VS-700C V-STUDIO Console offers hands on control of your production environment with everything you need right at your fingertips. Use features like the surround joystick and T-bar for front/rear balance, LFE Send, and Width control. The console also allows you to quickly switch to video control mode with one click of a button and use the T-Bar, Jog & Shuttle Wheel, Transport, and more to control hardware such as EDIROL’s DV-7 line of nonlinear video editors, or any video or image hardware with V-LINK support.
