In addition, you can split and combine instrument tracks to/from discrete audio/MIDI tracks.

SONAR performance optimizations focus on functionality, including improved performance at high track counts and low latencies, faster launch time, and the ability to change audio devices without restarting. Cakewalk has also streamlined communication with VST plug-ins and improved ASIO performance with output latency compensation.

User Interface optimizations include smoother display when resizing windows and panes, optimized metering, more responsive zoom and scroll.

Clip Selection Groups further SONAR's multitrack recording and take management capability. Now SONAR automatically groups clips together across tracks after each recording pass. This is perfect for comping any multitrack ensemble performance, especially drum takes.

Exclusive Solo Mode with Solo Override is a new solo mode that forces soloing to one track/bus at a time and prevents tracks and buses from being muted when other tracks/buses are soloed.

The Bus Inputs QuickGroup Command automatically groups all source tracks feeding a selected bus.

Mono hardware outputs makes it easy to assign tracks and buses to individual hardware outputs in addition to stereo pairs.

Transport Updates include True Rewind, Fast Forward and Pause buttons; Audition button; improved Jog/Shuttle Heuristics; and optimizations for control surfaces and scrub performance.

Comments about Cakewalk SONAR V-Studio 700 Music Production System - Hardware/Software Bundle:

this package has everything you need to produce a COMPLETE professional project. I use my fantom g6 and akai mpc 5000 thru the midi input and im able to lay down complete full length songs with ease. then i use my audio technica and art preamp and record my vocals, the vocal suite with this package makes editing and added effects simple, no need for a keyboard or mouse. where some of the other so called COMPLETE RECORDING PACKAGES WITH CONTROL SURFACES fail to live up to the bill is their lack of a TRUE mastering suite. the software and interface make mastering a breeze, and the finished product is great. if any artist or producers are looking to spent a little more than the average just get what works type of person, this package is the solution.
everything i needed and then some
had for over a year and not a single problem with anything, great job cakewalk
the only reason i rated the value anything under a 10 was the price. its a great package, but its hard to spend 4000 dollars and feel like you got your moneys worth.

V Studio 700 System

By SteveE9C6

from Houston

Comments about Cakewalk SONAR V-Studio 700 Music Production System - Hardware/Software Bundle:

Ok... I'm certainly not new to Sonar, as I've used it since XL2. I am new to the Controller and the Fantom Synth which is built in as a hardware VSTi. Out of the box, you have three components. The VS-700 Console, The V700/Fantom Rack with USB2 interface, and Sonar PE 8. (As an added bonus, you will get a free upgrade to 8.5 (just released) and 9 when it comes out.Since I already was familiar with Sonar, my learning curve was reduced somewhat. It took me several hours to get everything hooked up, do a firmware udate on the Rack/Fantom, download 8.5, and set it all up. Much of the setup is bulletproof if you let the software do it's job. I had some difficulty with getting Fantom to work but tech support easily fixed it by having me reset the correct midi settings in the Fantom Editor.The console is flat out high speed. It is pin quiet even when those nifty motorized faders are moving. I love the T bar control for the XRAY feature. I fades you thru the views so that you are able to easily see your loaded VST's.The sound... open clear and uncolored. Very very nice convertors and clean as a whistle preamps. This is going to take me a week or two to really dig in and realize the potential... but it rocks!The Fantom synth is icing on the cake!

Comments about Cakewalk SONAR V-Studio 700 Music Production System - Hardware/Software Bundle:

This is a great product and I am very happy with the features, the support, and the ease of operation it has afforded me. I can't wait to sit down to the desk in the morning and hate to leave at night. I gave this a 9 because, in the end, it is not a $100,000 controller, but, it is EXACTLY what I expected! The little disapointments melt and give way to the glow of a rewarding experience. You can always find things to complain about (which I did) but, I took care of them, made them go away, and now I am having a ball!
It has a lot of features that take a while to get used to, but then they become invaluable. I have been using SONAR and other Cakewalk products since the early '80s when they were just a little MIDI company with high hopes, so the learning curve is a little less sloped. If Roland/Cakewalk keep working to update and refine the integration of hardware and software, this will be an exciting and necessary instrument in my studio for a long, long time.
The preamps are nice. I won't get effusive about them because you get what you pay for, but the value is certainly there and definitely worth their share of the price. The fader movement is a little less than smooth but not a big deal and I wouldn't even mention it but it is a part of the experience. Not being able to change the sample rate without rebooting is annoying but workable. Sometimes you need a break and this is as good a reason as any. There are times when it is a little reluctant to sync up to the software, but since I have only been using it for two weeks, it could be that a little software tweaking is in order.
The big ding:
It did NOT work right out of the box. I am running SONAR X1 Expanded 64bit on WIN7 Pro and none of the docs has help for install or troubleshooting those versions. Usually Roland is good about putting maual revisions in the box. Online support was helpful though and appreciated.
For the money...hmmm...kinda steep and Roland has stopped support of cool things I have loved in the past. Like the VM7200 system. I just got rid of that and moved to the V-Studio. That being said, after using it and getting MOST of the bugs out. I am very pleased with the way it has simplified my workflow. Not using the mouse so much is hard but getting easier (you still need to use it).
I am not living in a world of regret having parted with the cash and I highly recommend this product to everyone. I also applaud Musicians Friend for the best customer service and the whole experience was deeply satisfying
