  1. This was the missing link I needed to get my vs700 working with Cakewalk Bandlab I've did the 1.31 firmware upgrade for the VS700c but somehow I missed this "control surface plug in version 1.2 update" And I'm running it through the WASAPI Exclusive audio driver. I can't seem to get it to work with ASIO? Things are certainly looking up. At least the controller is working now, in CwB, on win10. Do you (or anyone) know how well the surround panner and T-bar functionality work with bandlab? or the V-link? I could not load up the surround panner at all.
  2. Thanks for responding. I am using the console and rack combo. I've actually found another thread where someone was having the same issue and you gave a link to download the control surface plug in 1.2-- which I've done and now it seems to be integrating communicating with the console again. Major step in the right direction.. It's a different thread so I am not sure whether I can quote it here but I will try and add it below.
  3. Calling on my fellow VS-700 users, I have tried the driver hack that others have been using. I was able to install the drivers in Win10 but they didn't actually work.. they showed up in the preferences, but did not work with the vs700c for me, then there were some added bugs/popups too. I went back to windows 8.1, and back to Sonar, and it works perfectly, with full functionality. Is anyone using the vs700 with bandlab with actually full functionality with all it's features and no bugs? As in not just the faders, but everything? There were some functions lost with Sonar x1 and x2 from what I've read, so I went back to Producer 8.5, as that was when Roland had everything fully tuned to work seamlessly with Sonar. It seems there has been a decline in some of the advanced features since then. For instance, I want to be able to use the video mixing and surround sound capabilities, and make use of a lot of the original features when the vs700 came out. From what I can tell the greatest/smoothest/seamless integration only really happened at producer 8.5.. and then at Sonar x1/x2 it started to lose a bit of functionality. Then now there is the driver hack, that doesn't properly work for me at all (yet), but seems to be working fine for some others, but not all. Am I missing something here? Is anyone running Cakewalk Bandlab on Windows 10 with FULL VS700 functionality with all it's features? Or are people running earlier versions of Sonar in Windows 10? For seamless integration and functionality I've had to go all the way back to Sonar/Cakewalk Producer 8.5 on Windows 8.1. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've read so many past threads and spent days and days trying to solve this. And just for my own two cents worth- Roland should look after their customers better. To sell a premium studio product with a high price tag, and then just dump everyone who bought the gear is shameful. It's like selling a car that no longer drives due to a minor software issue. It's enough to make me want to dump Roland after years of being a loyal customer. The fact that Cakewalk changed hands is no excuse IMO. If Bandlab are able to sort out a new driver that enables a fully functional vs700 with Cakewalk/Bandlab, with all of it's original features, they will certainly have a very loyal customer in me- but not until then. It's such a shame because the VS700c is such an amazing controller. I want to be using all it's features! But I have to go back in time to do so.
  4. To any and all VS700 users out there, I thought it would be good to have a thread where we can discuss VS700 integration/functionality in more detail with Cakewalk Bandlab, ask questions and problem solve, and at least know what others are experiencing. Is anyone using the vs700 with bandlab with actual full functionality with all it's features and no bugs? There were some functions lost with Sonar x1 and x2 from what I've read, so I went back to Producer 8.5, as that was when Roland had everything fully tuned to work seamlessly with Sonar. It seems there has been a decline in some of the advanced features since then. But I am personally giving CwB another go to see if I can make it work. For instance, I want to be able to use the video mixing and surround sound capabilities. From what I can tell the greatest/smoothest/seamless integration only really happened at producer 8.5.. and then at Sonar x1/x2 it started to lose a bit of functionality. Does anyone know how to get the surround panning and T-bar functionality working in Cakewalk Bandlab? Has anyone really figured out the limits of what it can and can't do in CwB overall, apart from all the more basic functions? If anyone is interested to discuss their experience I'm all ears. And if not- maybe this thread can be a place where that kind of thing is discussed so VS700 users can make the most out of their gear with the latest Cakewalk by Bandlab.
