Featured Products


V-Studio 100
The centerpiece of the tour is the V-Studio 100, the most innovative music production hardware to come out in years. Think you know Cakewalk? Think again. Regardless of your choice for recording software, and regardless of whether you choose to use a Mac or PC, you need to see how the V-Studio 100 will dramatically transform your creative process. The V-Studio 100 frees you to record, produce, and perform music with your Mac, PC, or with no computer at all—anytime, anyplace.

This one-of-a-kind product combines a powerful 8x6 audio/MIDI interface, universal control surface, 8x6 digital mixer, and SD WAVE recorder. Compact and portable, the VS-100 is perfect for the musician on the go. Lay down tracks or capture an idea whether you're in a hotel room, on a tour bus, or wherever inspiration strikes. V-Studio 100 works with any Mac or PC DAW including Ableton Live, Cubase, Logic, SONAR, and others. The V-Studio 100 is as comfortable in your home studio as an audio interface and control surface as it is on the road as your personal digital mixer and SD recorder/playback device.


SONAR V-Studio 700 featuring SONAR Producer 8.5
SONAR V-Studio 700 is the ultimate music production studio and represents the flagship of the Cakewalk line. This complete recording solution includes the VS-700C console, the VS-700R I/O, a built-in Roland Fantom VS hardware synthesizer, Cakewalk's award-winning instruments Rapture and Dimension Pro, and the leading SONAR Producer digital audio workstation.

Best of all, because the V-Studio 700 was developed jointly by Cakewalk and Roland, there has never been a recording solution that combines such tight integration between software and hardware, along with such superb audio fidelity.

Special emphasis will be placed on the wealth of new features found in Cakewalk's SONAR 8.5 Producer, released last month. SONAR 8.5 is loaded with new enhancements, including the Matrix View, Step Sequencer 2.0, Arpeggiator, VX-64 Vocal Strip, PX-64 Percussion Strip, a totally redesigned AudioSnap 2.0, and Session Drummer 3 featuring 20 drum kits and hundreds of patterns from Steven Slate Drums, Sonic Reality and Groove Monkee.

SONAR Producer 8.5 is a free upgrade for all SONAR V-Studio 700 customers, and is available for purchase by new customers and for special upgrade pricing by existing Cakewalk SONAR customers.


IK Multimedia T-RackS 3 (Select Dates)

The new T-RackS 3 raises the bar again in high-end DAW mastering and mixing, with a suite of 4 Dynamics/EQ processors, full metering suite, an audio quality that is unmatched in software, and scores of new and unique features. All processors and metering modules can be combined within the plug-in/standalone suite or are also available as individual plug-ins for more convenient mixing within your DAW, for a truly complete bundle of 7 superior sounding tools (5 individual plug-ins, plug-in suite, standalone suite).
