Product Description

An Open-box is a new or very lightly used unit. They have never been sold and they were used as a window display or demo unit for short time. In many retail stores, they still can be sold as "Brand New". Every Open-box unit is guranteed problem free and without cosmetic blemish. Every Open-box unit comes with the same warranty as a brand new unit.


Cakewalk V-Studio 700

 is a complete studio solution with powerful SONAR software firmly at its center. With it, you'll have all tools needed to record flawless audio, then smoothly tweak it to published perfection. The Cakewalk V-Studio 700 system includes a superb-quality 24-bit/192kHz audio interface and a workflow-enhancing control surface with nine motorized, touch-sensitive faders. Round that all out with a built-in Fantom VS synthesizer and a copy of SONAR 8 Producer Edition, and you've got a comprehensive PC music creation, production, and mastering powerhouse with the Cakewalk V-Studio 700 system.

Optimize your studio workflow - take hands-on control of SONAR 8
Simply put, no other control surface offers this kind of integration of SONAR. That's because the V-Studio 700's VS-700C console was designed from the ground up to put you in touch with SONAR's essential functions. For starters, you can get your hands on nine motorized, touch-sensitive faders - which you can quickly bank between - to take charge of each and every mix. On each channel, you'll also have a vibrant LED display meter display as well as individual select/mute/solo/record-arm controls - in addition to a 2x13 LCD display on top of the unit, to let you know which track is currently on each fader.

Full-service, button-laden control panels make the mouse a thing of the past
The SONAR V-Studio 700 system is loaded up with buttons, knobs - even a joystick - to do one thing: make your workflow as fluid and effective as possible. To the left of the faders, an access panel lets you toggle between different screens within SONAR, perform edits from the console, and toggle modifiers to use your favorite SONAR short-cuts. Above this area, a Channel Strip Control of Cakewalk V-Studio 700 offers 12 rotary encoders/switches which auto-map to whatever effect or synth you have pulled up in SONAR. Last, but not least, on the right-hand side of the unit, there's a full-service transport control section with a jog/shuttle wheel, zoom controls, two headphone outputs, and a hi-Z instrument input for quickly plugging in your guitar and tracking. Above that, a multi-function T-Bar can control video hardware, "X-Ray" to show you which plug-ins are currently in use, adjust front/rear surround balance, or any other function you assign. Next to that, there's a surround/LFE send joystick, a V-Link button to enable video hardware control, and three knobs to control headphone and monitor levels.

Record with the first-class VS-700R audio interface - 21-in/30-out
Cakewalk's SONAR V-Studio 700 makes full-fledged, pro-level 24-bit/192kHz recording possible, as it's packed with nothing but the highest-grade preamplifiers and A/D converters. The preamps and converters, in fact, are the same as those found on Roland's state-of-the-art V-Mixing M-400 console. In all, the included VS-700R USB 2.0 interface gives you 21 inputs and 30 outputs (19-in/24-out simultaneously), including eight digitally controlled microphone preamplifiers on TRS/XLR inputs, ADAT I/O, digital I/O, MIDI I/O, and word clock I/O. With that kind of I/O complement, the SONAR V-Studio 700 is already a complete powerhouse system, but you can rest assured that it's ready to grow with your future needs. Should you ever need more inputs, you can always add another VS-700R unit to the system for a robust 41-in/56-out rig, with 37-in/48-out simultaneously.

Craft professional sounds - with no processing hit - using input DSP
The SONAR V-Studio 700's VS-700R interface is more than just a robust portal for your studio's extensive I/O needs - it's packed with DSP processing power, so you can tailor your sound before you ever decide to call a plug-in into service. Use the high-quality input DSP to apply the right equalization or compression to an input source - or use the highpass filter to squelch problematic low-end before you hit "record." The onboard DSP also handles other handy audio-tailoring needs, as Cakewalk V-Studio 700 provides built-in phase and pad control.

Built-in hardware Fantom VS synthesizer gives you fast access to renowned sounds
Roland's Fantom synthesizer has swept the globe with its incredible set of sounds - and, with the Cakewalk SONAR V-Studio 700, you've got access to that renowned sonic palette! That's because there's actually a Fantom VS synthesizer built right into the hardware, and Cakewalk V-Studio 700 boasts more than 1,400 patches to heat up your creativity. The synthesizer acts as a VSTi plug-in, so you can seamlessly edit and route it within SONAR - and, since it's actually a hardware synth, you won't have the issues with latency that other virtual instruments can cause. Finally, if you want to expand the amount of sounds available in your hardware synth, you can do it - just add any Roland SuperNATURAL ARX expansion board to the extra slot found in the VS-700R audio interface. Currently, there are everything from piano to drums to brass expansions available - all with unbelievably realistic sound sets.

Includes powerful SONAR 8 Producer Edition software to see your projects through
While the V-Studio 700 system's VS-700R is at the heart of your I/O, and the VS-700C is your portal to tactile control, the system is all designed to give you the most out of SONAR - and it includes a Cakewalk's ultimate version of the DAW, SONAR 8 Producer Edition. This potent DAW is a full-on music production and music creation software suite, giving you all the tools you need to see your inspiration through to radio-ready, final projects. In it, there are loads of virtual instruments - weaving from rich acoustic sounds to atmospheric pads to guitar amp modeling to groove-making and beyond. More than that, SONAR 8 Producer Edition is packed with a huge assortment of professional plug-ins and audio effects - and its automatic plug-in delay compensation keeps you "in the mix," instead of compensating for it. That's all to say that whatever it is you want to accomplish - from writing music all the way to mixing it down and publishing it, you'll find a set of tools worthy for each job in SONAR 8 Producer Edition.

PLEASE NOTE: Cakewalk SONAR 8 Producer Edition software can free upgrade to Cakewalk Sonar X1 Producer version.
