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.
