    Connectors: e / s MIDI e / s SPDIF, 2 XLR + jack, 1 headphone output jacks, 1 interface for external SCSI hard disk
    There are a few gigabytes of hard drive for thirty hours of music.
    The sampling is 44.1 kHz / 16 bit
    There are afternoon and sync functions mtc / mmc (never used)
    2 tracks recorded simultaneously, 8 reading.
    There are also 16 other "virtual" tracks that are exchanged, bounce, copy, paste, etc..

    UTILIZATION

    Configuration very simple, user manual and super clear.
    The main functions are accessible via dedicated buttons (pano, effects browser, punch in / out, etc..), And small screen shows essential.

    The main functions are accessible via dedicated buttons (pano, effects browser, punch in / out, etc..), And small screen shows essential.
    This is one of the strengths of the device: there was never more than two or three buttons to push to get what you want = priority to music!

    SOUNDS

    To the model, the converters are quite valid, at my level, that they were not the weak link in the recording chain. There is a channel equalizer with presets by type of instrument, but there is only one effect for everyone.
    We're talking about a device of the twentieth century, so there is no amp models, hp, etc., Just some necessary and sufficient effects (reverbs, delays, chorus, etc).

    OVERALL OPINION

    Therefore used since 2001, still home studio.
    The arrival of PC more efficient almost be fatal, but a major advantage it has given a prominent place: I turn, I play, I record, I think of nothing else.
    So, we made the drafts on the VF08, there spills ideas, we made made fast, and then requests the PC, when the idea is stored warm in the hard disk.
    What I like most: simplicity, lighting, size (changes everywhere), the strength, it gives confidence.
    What I like: I have taken years to remind me that there was a switch to turn on the phantom power ... it is stashed, what a shame.
    Today it is on, many machines are far more advanced, but if you want to go quickly and without embellishment, it does!
