V-Studio 20 Control Surface Installer for Cakewalk?

Recommended Posts

guys I have done it! it isn't a driver issue or reboot problem. I installed an older version of sonar (sonar x2) - I tried platinum but did not make any change. Installing sonar x2 made all the vs series and much more show up in bandlab cakewalk. I am keeping my copy of x2 on my system. Once X2 is uninstalled, this disappears from the bandlab version! I have just tried it. I am wondering if it is because when Roland dropped out, they didn't include the features on later builds such as platinum. Because people have followed the upgrade path from older versions, components from the older versions remain? Anyway...I'm happy! Thanks everyone.

I have a laptop with only Sonar platinum on it and it and VS 20 works as a control surface and as an audio interface.

@Matthew Richards I hadn't thought of that as I assumed the old SonarXL wouldn't install on Win10 correctly.  I'll try it as I have the original disks. 

If anyone can login to the old website and download this file I would be eternally grateful if you could send it to me...if so can you send me a message.  Since it is the 64-bit upgrade to the control surface I wonder if it will work with Cakewalk by Bandlab.  I've asked tech support for a copy also but no response yet.

You shouldn't need to log in to download it, do you not see the download link at the bottom of the page ?

If you don't see it, let me know and I can download it for you.

Yes you need an old ID to download the file - when you click on that link it opens the login page. 

If you can send it I would truly appreciate it!

Just to close the loop on this thread;

Installing Sonar XL did not solve the problem  (I was unable to install Sonar 3 in Win 10).

Running the installer v1.0.0.4 worked like a charm for both the VS-20 Control Surface AND the embedded COSM effects within the V-Studio hardware!  

Many thanks  for the help  @chuckebaby !!!

I think there was a bit of confusion there between the SONAR X series (X1, X2, X3) and the much older SONAR XL. SONAR X2 would be about the right time frame for when the VS20 was released, otherwise the separate installer would do the job. 

@chuckebaby I think you actually do need to be logged in on the site for the download links, most of us just stay logged in and don't think about it anymore. 😁

If anyone without a Cakewalk account needs a legacy installer file off the site, send me a PM and I can provide a link.

You are absolutely right. I never noticed that before because I'm always logged in. 

The OP and I talked through PM a couple days ago and I downloaded the installer and sent it to him.
