Roland and Cakewalk announce the V-Studio 20, a hardware interface for guitarists who want to record and create music on their Mac or PC.

The V-Studio 20 matches the simplicity of a portable, hardware recording system with the power, flexibility, and control of modern computer-based recording. Whether you’re at home or on the road, you can easily connect a guitar or mic to the VS-20 hardware and dial up genuine BOSS sounds. Once you’re ready, record directly to your computer for further editing and mixing using Cakewalk Guitar Tracks recording software.

  • The VS-20 hardware combines a stereo audio interface, control surface, and built-in stereo mics
  • Get amazing guitar tones with a Hi-Z input and on-board BOSS-powered, COSM DSP effects for amp simulation and 4 virtual pedal modules (Compression, Overdrive/Distortion, Chorus/Mod, Delay) including 36 genuine BOSS effects and 50 presets
  • Record vocals with a phantom powered XLR input and get a great sound with built-in latency free COSM DSP for harmony, real-time pitch correction, reverb, compression, and more
  • Hardware and software share a similar user-interface and feature controls that make it easy for anyone to record their music
