Announced today at Frankfurt Musikmesse is the Cakewalk V-Studio 20 studio solution for recording guitarists. The one-box system combines a Mac/PC-compatible control surface/stereo (24-bit/44.1kHz) USB audio interface with onboard Boss-powered COSM DSP guitar and vocals effects, VS-20 Effects Editor (Mac/Win) software and the Windows-only Guitar Tracks recording application.

The hardware’s universal DAW controller supports all popular digital recording software for Mac/PC via Mackie control protocol with eight faders (in selectable four banks), dedicated controls for track select/effects browsing/monitoring; volume controls for DAW output/VS-20 Effects and Main Outs; a built-in tuner; XLR mic input with phantom power; hi-Z input; line inputs; onboard stereo mics; RCA line and headphone outputs; and a COSM DSP chip for zero-latency direct monitoring.

Among the onboard effects are 12 COSM modeled amps, pedals, reverb, vocal harmony/pitch correction and a re-amping mode. The Guitar Tracks recording app offers 32 audio tracks, each with 2-band EQ, reverb and echo sends; a MIDI backing track; 11 classic effects; support for additional VST effects; integrated CD burning; and export to MP3, WAV and Windows Media files.

The V-Studio 20 hardware drivers, VS-20 Effects Editor, and Guitar Tracks software is available for PCs and netbooks (XP, Vista and Windows 7). In addition, support is planned for using the VS-20 hardware and Effects Editor with popular Mac-based recording software titles. Hardware drivers and the VS-20 Effects Editor for the Mac's Snow Leopard OS will be available Q2, 2010, via download from Cakewalk’s Website. Cakewalk states that V-Studio 20 is slated to ship in May.
