Cakewalk and Roland Rock at Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp

Are you ready to rock? Last week, over sixty campers said yes, and so did we, when Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp opened its new facility just off the Strip in Las Vegas, NV.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp lets musicians live out their rock and roll dreams by being a part of a rock band that’s led by a real rock star. They get to jam and learn from these rock star counselors as well as record their performances, living out their fantasies both on stage and in studio.

The ‘Camp’s new digs featured a performance room with a twenty foot stage, a thirty foot green screen, and ten rehearsal/ recording rooms. Each rehearsal/ recording room was outfitted with all the gear a rocker could wish for, including a Roland GA-112 guitar amp, Roland RD-700NX digital piano, an HP Z1 or HP Z220 workstation, HP ZR30w monitors, dual Roland Octa-Captures running in VS Expanded mode, and SONAR X2 Producer.

The HP Z1s and HP ZR30ws have extremely high resolutions of 2560×1440 and 2560×1600, and if you’ve never seen SONAR on a display like that before, its worth clicking the picture to the left to get a bigger view. That’s a lot of console strips!

But the fun didn’t stop there.
