Cakewalk & Roland Systems Group Create Recording Option for REAC Systems

Cakewalk, in partnership with Roland Systems Group, announces SONAR REAC Recording System, a multi-track recording package for REAC Systems. Cakewalk has developed technology that captures audio via a PC’s Gigabit Ethernet port from any REAC device for recording directly into Cakewalk‘s SONAR recording software.

The SONAR REAC Recording System is a complete software and hardware solution. The heart of the system is an enhanced version of SONAR Producer Edition, capable of recording 40 tracks of audio from the Gigabit Ethernet port on a Window‘s based PC. A Cakewalk SPS-66 Firewire Interface is included to enable audio monitoring at the recording PC location.

REAC is the audio connection developed by Roland, capable of transmitting 40 channels of 24-bit audio at rates up to 96 kHz over inexpensive Cat5e cable. REAC is implemented in Roland‘s RSS brand products, including the Digital Snake series, the M-400 V-Mixer, and the V-Mixing System.

With this new release from Cakewalk, users simply connect a Cat5e cable from a REAC System to a gigabit network port on a PC with SONAR software to record up to 40 simultaneous channels of pure 24-bit audio. Extensive development and testing has been done to confirm the robust performance of SONAR for this demanding application of ultrahigh bandwidth data capture.

“Many applications call for cost effective but professional quality recordings of live performances with a high channel count.” states Mr. Hidekazu Tanaka, President of Roland Corporation. “This exciting new REAC recording technology, introduced by Cakewalk, enables high channel count recording from a REAC system to Cakewalk SONAR.”

“We are very excited to be partnering with Roland in developing the SONAR REAC recording technology,” commented Greg Hendershott, Founder and CEO of Cakewalk. “SONAR has been enabling composers and engineers in studios to produce professional quality recordings for years. With this new technology, Cakewalk is extending the same capabilities to engineers using REAC based audio systems” added Hendershott.

Adding this cost-effective SONAR recording option to Roland‘s revolutionary V-Mixing system is the answer to high quality live digital-audio capture of many channels with high quality. Once the audio is captured, customers will be able to take advantage of SONAR‘s extensive editing capabilities and superior 64-bit double precision mix engine to deliver polished professional productions.

A beta version of the REAC recording package will be released in the near future to registered program participants in order to provide feedback for the final product release.

The SONAR REAC Recording System will be available in early 2008.
