Fantom VS Editor & ARX Editor Installer

Last updated on 3/18/2016

Stand-alone installer for the Fantom VS Editor and ARX Editor.

What's New:

  • Includes both 32-bit and 64-bit installations for single and dual VS-700R configurations
  • Fixed an issue where the Fantom VS Editor would display a "MIDI devices aren't set up correctly" error message, resulting in it not generating audio
  • Fixed a bug related to the part indicator of the ARX-03 Brass Board

Installation Instructions:


  1. Download the installer from the link below and save it to your computer
  2. Launch the installer and choose your installation language
  3. If you are running 64-bit Windows, you will be prompted with the message "Please choose (32-bit) or (64-bit) Installation". Choose the option for the version of SONAR you are using.
    • Note: This option is for compatibility with your host but the plug-ins are 32-bit plug-ins in each installation. It is normal for these to launch in BitBridge in the 64-bit version of SONAR.
  4. When you arrive at the "Select Components" screen,  only select the components for the hardware you have.
    • If you have not purchased an ARX Expansion card and do not have one installed, do not select "VS-700 ARX Editor".
    • If you do not own a 2nd VS-700R, do not select either option for a 2nd VS-700R
  5. When you arrive at the VST Folder dialog, it is recommended to keep the default location.
    • Note: If you change this location, please note that you will need to direct SONAR's VST Scanner to search for this afterwards .
      • By default, the 32-bit installation installs to C:\Program Files (x86)\Cakewalk\Vstplugins
      • By default, the 64-bit installation installs to C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\Vstplugins
  6. Continue with the on screen instructions until the installation is complete
  7. On your computer keyboard hold down the SHIFT key and launch SONAR
  8. When prompted with the message "SONAR will now personalize user settings"... click [OK]
