  1. I was wondering if any body knows if you can use pre existing programes to load into the roland expansion vs8 f board or deos the exiting companys such as IK make special plug ins. I already own alot of the programmes that roland is now supporting but I need some more info before purchasing this new expansion board :?

    The Roland requires its own proprietary versions of the Plug-ins to run on the VS8F3 (typical Roland). Sorry...

    But, I was informed that the plugs' algorithms are IDENTICAL to the TDM versions, but the VS8F3 can NOT read the TDM plugs direclty.

    Goto http://www.vsplanet.com for TONS of killer info on the Roland recorders (I, too, have a 2480, and hang out there often). I'm looking into replacing it with a Laptop/FW interface - as I'm getting really sick of Rolands proprietary & selfish practices... The DVD version of the 2480 is a joke IMO (the DVD only allows "backing up" project data, you can NOT export or import waves from the DVD, nor can you write a DVD-Audio disc of any kind).

    It is a cool unit, but I'm moving on, and dedicationg the 2480 to jam-rom PA use (makes one hell of a live mixer!).

    :cool:
