Product Description

V-Studio 100 is the portable music production system that lets you create, record, produce, and perform music with or without a Mac or PC.

V-Studio 100 works with all the leading digital audio workstations on the market today including Ableton Live, Cubase, Logic, and Sonar. It includes the critically acclaimed V-Studio 100 hardware which combines an audio interface, control surface, digital mixer, and SD WAVE recorder into one compact, portable design. In addition, V-Studio includes the VS Production pack--a collection of 10 essential effects and instruments that will enhance your productions in any Mac or PC digital audio workstation.

V-Studio 100 is based on technology found in Cakewalk's flagship V-Studio 700 music production system with some added functionality. Its compact, all-in-one design is portable enough to take anywhere for your mobile recording needs and powerful enough to be the centerpiece of your home studio.

With Your Computer

When using it with your computer, the V-Studio 100 is a high quality audio interface and a DAW controller. Simply connect to a MAC or Windows and use your favorite software such as Sonar, Logic, Live, Cubase or the included Sonar VS digital audio workstation (Windows Only). Take your music to the next level with the VS Production Pack which is a powerful collection of effects and instruments for MAC and Windows.

USB 2.0 Interface

The V-Studio 100 is a feature-packed device which has an 8-channel audio interface, a computer-free live mixer/SD recorder and a full-fledged DAW control surface. The USB 2.0 port sends audio into your Mac or PC at high speeds. Plus you have two channels with XLR microphone preamps (with phantom power) as well as 1/4 inch TRS line inputs so you can bring in your choice of sources. The Sonar V-Studio 100's additional inputs come in the form of two TRS inputs, two RCA inputs and two channels over a digital coaxial input. That's a lot of recording capability. And on the output side, you've got flexibility as well: six analog outputs (four on TRS, two on RCA) let you send out audio to a pair of studio monitors and a handheld recorder at the same time.

USB 2.0 Audio Interface

- 8 inputs + mix/ 6 outputs, 24-bit/96 kHz quality

DAW Control

For you audio production engineers, you will love the V-Studio 100's integrated control surface. It works with any DAW via Mackie's control protocol so you can use it in any studio without interrupting your workflow. Onboard, there's a 100mm motorized, touch-sensitive fader for writing automation and making precise level adjustments. Then, 5 rotary encoders and 11 buttons let you take control of such essential functions as level, panning, EQ, and more. An excellent features is that the V-Studio 100 provides a full transport control section.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "great portable all-in-one virtual studio"
Sound: Sound is crystal and transparent as any good audio interface should be. Feature: basically all I need but I wish VS100 has more assignable knobs and one more motorized slider. Also I'd like to be able using wave recorder when connected to PC through USB, currently it's not possible. With unit was included generous software package like Sonar VS which is very nice trimmed version of Sonar X1. Ease of Use: manual is not to descriptive, online support also no complete. Roland's video demonstration don't show much. Most of the features I discovered on cakewalk forum. Quality: as usually roland products are very well made, this unit is like a brick and looks very professional and solid. Value: It's a little bit overpriced but you can get good deal if you need to, especially at zzounds.com. Manufacturer Support: never had to deal with roland support. The Wow Factor: yes, it does look good and professional near my laptop. Overall: I think it is to stay for some time, I am going to supplement it with octa-capture though since they are not enough inputs for some bigger projects. VS100 as for now do what's supposed to do and I'm satisfied with this purchase, if it was stolen I'd buy it again.
Style of Music: pop, rock, jazz, classical

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "GET IT!! It's the Swiss Army Knife of USB Audio Interfaces...it does just about everything you could ask for..."
Sound: The preamps are great on the V-Studio 100. Sound quality is excellent also. Most bang for the buck in a USB Audio Interface in this price range. NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTS, and I've tried 'em all. Feature: ACT control of software plug-ins, a complete DAW controller with 100mm touch sensitive motorized fader, Digital Mixer with Reverb, Compression, and Parametric EQ built in (and sound great) 96Khz Sample rate, 8 ins, 11 outs...4 Balanced ins, 1 Hi-Z switchable, the list goes on...AND a Secure Digital Stand Alone recorder and Mixer to boot! Granted there are some features missing...but WOW...what do you expect? Ease of Use: Product is very easy to use...there were some glitches getting up and running ..but overall...very simple. Quality: The product is well built and feels durable...Meal Housing, nice display...metal touch sensitive fader, rubber buttons on trasport control, multifunction buttons and knobs, trim and sensitivity on inputs, Pan Control,.....On Board DSP Compressor/EQ button, Reverb selection, there's a LOT in this thing....very well done...5 times the product of the MBox...with MUCH BETTER sound and function...IMHO Value: This is BY FAR the most bang for you buck....anywhere....highest quality, most features, and most useful in this price range. Manufacturer Support: Support for the V-Studio has been good..but I just upgraded to Sonar X1 and can't get their Support group to get me my serial number...and I bought it FROM THEIR SITE!!! The Wow Factor: It's a VERY Professional looking piece of gear...AND you get a lot for your money...the Interface, DAW Controller, SD recorder, Digital Mixer, in a sleek professional looking package. Sonar VS DAW Software, Studio Instruments, Rapture LE, Dimension LE, and Guitar Rig 3 LE...and quite a few more plug-ins, that's quite a bit for your money...IMHO THAT makes it VERY SEXY!! Overall: I think I will be quite happy with it.
Style of Music: ALL..primary is Classic Rock
