All user reviews for the Roland VS-1680
There shall exist two software as indicated on a rating:
"There is an optional PC software to control it via PC, Logic VS.
Also, a free PC software allows you to extract wav files from CD back-up VS to mix his favorite software! "
But damn OR find the software at the "logic vs." It's been years that I seek, if someone has an idea ...
The grip is quickly
Very good consistency
Yes I do it again this choice, even if there is good software on the PC, there is nothing like the Hardware ...

RickD's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Symtriques 8 analog inputs, 2 XLR.
8 outputs on RCA spares.
1 SPDIF coax between stro.
1 SPDIF Optical Stereo between.
1 x Stereo SPDIF coax.
1 x SPDIF Optical Stereo.
SCSI connectors and MIDI.
Dclencher between footswitch for recording distance: if re-re, for example. Very practical.
Possibility of replacing the internal hard drive to put a larger bcp qques for tens of euros! Possible to add an external HDD too ...
Table numrique automation with easy to use.
Edition: copy and paste, dplacer, etc..
Option: Logic VS PC to control the VS-1680 via the PC!
EQ 3-band semi-paramtrique on each channel: from to track reading! So you can mix your tracks 16 read with 16 inputs and automate everything!
Two cards of optional effects: Stereo or 4 adverse effects 8 mono, including amp simulations and microphone, rverbes of good quality, flanger, phaser, harmonizing, pitch-shifter, vocoder, compressor, multi- tapes for mastering, mono compressor, etc.. etc.. etc..
INSERT all the voices and the master too!
Infinite possibilities of the routing table from 1 to track 16, for example.
Possibility of bouncing (table tennis) without any loss by adding effects and keeping the original tracks in the event of changes later.
Possibility to route external effects numrique without loss in the VS table.
CRER possibility of the network using the headphones auxiliary spars and extremely flexible routing to the outputs indpendantes.
Headphone jack and volume 2 spars: one for monitoring (ddies outputs) and one for the headphone itself, so the headphones can rgler affetti without costs and without touching to master.
In short, a machine archi-complte. No other 16 tracks so does my knowledge.
The use does not seem intuitive at all beginners. Once you read the manual pages qques, everything falls in order and the machine is easy to use.
There is an optional PC software for control via PC, Logic VS.
Also, a free PC software to extract wav files from CD back-up VS to mix his favorite software!
For the price, there is nothing happening to her ankle on the market either new or used.
The effects are of good quality trs.
I RALIS lot of models whose sound is simply irrprochable, and this view of his ing and musicians who have a good exprience in the studio.
Overall, the machine 16 tracks the most complte the march. Trs reliable and stable arch is 10 times better than a soundcard, even card CHRE and can easily work on PC using a free app that extracts tracks in wav qques minutes to mix and edit on PC in any app.
In my opinion, almost a perfect machine.

Alval94's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
The VS1680 is a trs good machine, easy to use. In addition to Roland for problems of manual, there are ways to download the manual. The explanations are clear uses. Before I had the vs880, its small ERRF made me great service. I switched to the range above, with VS1680 and I would still pass maintenent has superior range, but always with Roland.
The effects are really adaptsa this product
I use it for over a year. What struck me the most is his use sduit simple. Before attempting Roland, I test the Yamaha, in one word it was the galre. The ratio quality price is acceptable. Roland, I tested and I adopted him. THANK YOU ROLAND
Guime74's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Analog IN 8 (including 2 XLR, jack 6)
IN + stereo cinch
DIGITAL IN / OUT (coax and opt)
2 OUT analog stereo (Cinch)
MIDI IN / OUT
chantillonage: 48kHz max
STORAGE: Hard D
simult: 8REC, 16 playback, virtual 16 * 16
Simple setup because I BR8 before, and spend the other silent del'un very easy.
manual trs clear
Converters: trs well
effects: medium, not to abuse (especially compressor). Advice, nothing like a good compressor between lamp. I use a TL Audio Fatman 2nd gnration
2 years of use
I prfre particularity: easy to use, start-up, flexibility
I like the least: there's no bote incorporates rhythm! it's a shame, compared to a machine much worse (the BR8) that in a possdait.
quality price ratio trs INTERESTED especially now: used 600!
I would do this choice. We recorded our first album on it. C'tait a model, but the record company found the model good enough for the press as well. The album is Submitted in all stores in Belgium, has had good reviews trs of the press, no worries vis vis the sound ... The gear used for this album:
- Two microphones AKG C3000 (in overhead for percussion)
- Two SM58 microphones which were removed for antipop congas
- RODE NTK microphone lamp for voice, acoustic guitar and other acoustic instruments ... etc. ....
- Bass DI
- TL AUDIO prampli fatman 2
That's it! To save the bass drum, we used an AKG C3000 in the coated fabrics for vibrations: it is DIY, but costs the country as www.dinea4.be charcoal on our site, we are happy with the sound of GC .
We currently prpare 2nd album on this machine: pq to pay a studio as we have here the flexibility to work wherever you want, whenever you want. We buy qd even a micro GC D112 (AKG) as there will be more battery as seen in this album.

Tralala4's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
It is a machine that requires a total investment in reading the manual, but worth it, believe me!
The effects posibles two optional cards are infinite and trsdlicats
Only one thing to say: I recorded my first album on VS1680 and my record company "Company Sergeant Major" was signed in the State!
I am currently recording my album deuxime on this unit!

If you are unsure about what lon can get with these machines, I invite you cost the debut album of singer Malagasy Hanitra Ranaivo, this disc has t in ten days, in a small house Antananarivo Madagascar, on the system Roland VS 1680.
It is today distributed in fifty countries and obtained in Denmark, for his technical and artistic quality the same price as two albums produced by the record company Sony.
For the record vendor mavait say the VS 1680, CTAIT well to make good model. There are in France and in the West gnral a standard problem with the hardware, it looks like all dpends him, the music goes into the background, plug your guitar on this type of device and try to make it sound without artifice with just your fingers.
If you do not succeed you must understand that it is time for you to hide of stopping your guitar derrire 2000 Euros
People are still hiding their brand derrire rope, mdiator, it seems that music is a sport mcanique.
Again listen this album, most musicians who participated in Malagasy does not personally possdent same instrument.
