stompboxjon's review"Lots of effects to choose from"

Cakewalk V-Studio 20
The CakeWalk V-Studio 20 is a USB interface and control surface that has 36 on board effects that can be used for your vocals or guitar tracks. It only cost 300 dollars and it can be used with Mac and PC computers. It has a total of 36 BOSS effects and over 50 separate presets. This interface is the total package because it has everything you need including inputs for your instruments and microphones as well as the connections for your footswitches, pedals, monitors, and headphones.


Some of my favorite effects on the V-Studio 20 are the reverb effects (hall, and Room) as well has some of the Modulate and Analog delay effects. The Chorus, Flanger, Tremolo, Rotary and Uni-V are pretty good effects as well. Some of the distortion effects like, Metal, Core, Fuzz, Bass Drive, and OD-1 are also very good too.


Setting up the CakeWalk V-Studio 20 is quick and easy; it does come with a manual that is in PDF format which makes it easier to use then a regular book because you can easily just search what you want to know rather than flipping through pages.


The CakeWalk V-Studio 20 cannot be racked, it is just a desktop interface. But it does not take up much of your workspace because it is only about a foot wide and 6 inches in depth. It only weights about 2 pounds just in case you want to take it around with you. It has on board Phantom Power but not Bus Power. If you are a CakeWalk or Sonar user, this will work great for you. The effects are definitely a plus and a selling point with this interface. If it wasn’t for the effects I would not recommend getting it. I have been using this unit since 2010 and it has never given me any issues. As long has you have a solid PC or Mac with updated drivers you will have no problems or worries.

Cakewalk V-Studio 20
small handy interface,
one branch, play, and hop is in the box,
to quickly capture ideas, compositions,
with a quality not too bad at all!

characteristics or for others, there are plenty of videos on the web


very simple to use and no latency issues or other
so far it is stable


its side, it does not break bricks but it has come something a satisfactory recording, and very satisfying when you work a little mix ...


I use it for 1 year,
yes I tried other models pro to record group
that it has nothing to see of course, it is for a personal use, you can record a track has faith (or simultaneous voice + guitar but I have not tested)
there are plenty of things to complain about, but these settings are that strength, they make it a very simple interface ... it merely is boulo,
I would have liked a little app created for drum part, because of the samples supplied battery enough for me more
short, it became necessary for me, my amp is at the rehearsal room and replace vs 20 at home, as someone once said, "a true Swiss Army knife"
for me the best interface to record my ideas well done quickly, to give direction to the group ...

Cakewalk V-Studio 20
completely new to home studio, I had bought to make instrumental recordings (mostly guitars) and I use it as a multitrack. What motivated my choice is that it should not be a computer to make music with!


no installation issues and I use it on a fairly old laptop anyway. It is possible to make space by erasing the "backings" that are not used. Tracks can only be registered once. no latency to my ears!
It comes with the software "guitar tracks" going well.


use is childish and I do not need the manual (which is rather crude it must be admitted)


For 250 euros new, it's a very good product if used as such: a mini studio to craft music that you carry around which there are amp simulators for guitars, bass and vocals, effects and multitrack! all quickly taken over by the solitary musician and allowing you to record your musical ideas and a result out just fine and listenable.
I noted 9/10 because nothing is perfect and I can not compare it to others since I have tried and adopted as this one.

Cakewalk V-Studio 20
For how long have you been using it?

Approximately 1 week

What thing do you like most/least about it?

-Most: the effects Boss integrate (+ preamp pedal), the sound quality, prerecorded drum tracks, the 50 presets, the control panel of the card.

-Cons: certain sound slightly synthetic sounds, especially the large distortion, not to the octave with préampplis proposed: ((but still be able to use effects pedals), footswitch not provided

Did you try many other models before getting this one?

No, the following model was at 500 € ...

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

I think I would do this election close your eyes, at the beginning I was afraid that my purchase does not suit me but the final I do loose more!
