The ultimate solution for music production
A new era in music production begins with SONAR V-STUDIO 700
Roland® Fantom VS
Hardware Synthesizer
The original Roland V-STUDIO symbolized a new breed of digital studios that revolutionized music production. Launched in
1996, V-Studio created a huge sensation within the music industry. Due to its innovative design, musicians were able to take
control of their music in new ways. Regarded as a milestone in the history of recording equipment, V-STUDIO had a lasting
impact on the way musicians create music.
With the popularity of computer-based music production upon us, the next generation SONAR V-STUDIO 700 has taken
innovative design to the next level to meet the demands of today’s audio professionals. With the most complete integration of
hardware and software ever, SONAR V-STUDIO 700 has once again raised the bar for all other integrated music production
systems on the market today.
Roland pioneered the concept of combining hard disk recording with an ergonomic control surface. Now, a new generation of
V-STUDIO builds on its legacy in new and innovative ways—combining Roland’s renowned hardware expertise with the power
and flexibility of Cakewalk’s SONAR Producer digital audio workstation.
SONAR V-STUDIO 700 matches SONAR 8 Producer with an ergonomically designed control surface, a flawless sounding
audio interface with an onboard Fantom hardware synthesizer, and the award-winning Rapture virtual instrument. SONAR

It is an innovative new concept from Cakewalk and Roland, who continue to create new standards for the next generation.
Read on to learn how SONAR V-STUDIO 700 will transform your music production forever.
Striving to create an ideal music production environment, Cakewalk and
Roland® have built the ultimate DAW system integrated with high-end tools.
Cakewalk and Roland selected only the very best components in designing SONAR V-STUDIO 700. At the heart of
the system is SONAR 8 Producer, the leading DAW in the market today. SONAR 8 Producer gives you everything you
need for recording, composing, editing, mixing, and mastering. Cakewalk’s flagship instruments, Dimension Pro
(included in SONAR 8 Producer) and Rapture, are also part of the software package.
The software is intelligently matched with state-of-the-art hardware that meets Roland’s high standards of quality
and reliability. It includes the VS-700C V-STUDIO Console multifunction control surface and VS-700R V-STUDIO
18/24 I/O audio interface which has an integrated Roland Fantom VS hardware synthesizer based on the
world-renowned Fantom synthesizer.
Taken as a whole, SONAR V-STUDIO 700 offers the “tactile feel” of working in a traditional studio, but in a way that
takes advantage of everything modern technology has to offer. The system represents the best that software and
hardware have to offer with amazing control, integration, and sound quality.
The VS-700C Console offers broader ranging control and deeper editing and
mixing functionality for SONAR than any control surface on the market today
