ericthegreat's review"no problems with this."
On a tape machine, you would merely arm the new tracks you wish to record on. For whatever reason, even though the tracks will arm, no recordings will be made on those tracks until the machine is stop and re-engaged into record mode. This isn't a major limitation, but you must be aware of it, especially if you're trying to record something on the fly, because you'll lose whatever you're trying to capture until you actually stop and then start recording on the machine.
For instance, although the machine has USB ports, in order to connect USB thumb and hard drives to for easy importing and exporting, the ports are located exclusively on the back of the machine. This can be a major pain to access if the main parst, is rackmounted (as it ought to be), and at least two ports should have been provided at the front of the machine.
This problem can be somewhat solved with a USB extension cable, but for a machine of this caliber and cost it should not be necessary to have to resort to such measures. This unit is well worth the pretty penny it cost to purchase, you will love it.

NO -- this thing is NOT easy to use!!! I finally figured out how to use everything that I wanted to be able to use it for -- but even now, there are things that I wish that I could do with it that I can't.
Ordinarily, Roland stuff is pretty road-worthy -- but this sucker was only in my studio, and began to exhibit some problems with the data wheel about six months into heavy use. After I sent it out and got it back, it began to show signs of wear on the faders. Ugh.
Mine came with the two VS8F cards, which jacked the price up. It sounds exactly like I would expect it to sound -- which is to say that I don't hear the sound. I hear the music that I record onto it.
I do love this sucker after all. It has helped me to create some really good-sounding music. At the end of the day, whatever works is what works.

heybulldog's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" very good studio 24 tracks"
simultaneous recording of 16 tracks (8 analog and 8 digital R-bus)
Play 24 tracks. HDD 40GB I think. See what you can come and then Backuper cd if you want to keep some old projects then ....
Using fairly simple if you do not its first digital multitrack, if this is the case it is hard, but the manual is well done, just need to spend time to get the details you can guess not instinct, ergonomics is good.
Common functions easily accessible (by mouse or the buttons on the console.)
Pretty good converters, good effects (ie the Roland / Boss ...) Dynamic not bad at all, of course if you have a rack preamp pro, go over your instruments before sending the VS, but otherwise it is sufficient for a self-produced CD as it does a lot ...
Damage that brands have left out what kind of product in the name of the sacrosanct computer music (yes the margin is greater, you're talking about!). There is thus more than secondhand one can get them.
I've had it a year after doing 10 years with a mix of VS1880. The 2400CD is the same, only better because more tracks and dedicated screen with your mouse.
Raport money in secondhand excellentissime course!
I would do this choice without worry if I had more time to devote to the recording, which is not the case ...

24 * 16 virtual tracks for perfectionists or awkward ...
card effects trs intrgrant effective to kill the master trs uninhabited fund.
premplification efficient and effective management in a TRS insert.
13 motoriss insipid mix for optimal comfort
perfect connection, the road as you want with the EZ ROUTING menu
chantillonage up to 96 kHz, 40G hard drive than enough since it can safeguard its Bakupa songs on cd rom
This recorder is a simplicity numrique dconcertante ... after some months it heures_ 8 \ days ... like all the studios of this kind.
accssible everything is either on the machine or on the VGA monitor by DPOs and drag the mouse.
the manual is clear who takes the time to read it but not strong enough to use over time eg you are looking for a manip, you read it in, you just rest a little obr /> time dernire to this and you take back so, after a while it turns into 3 or 4 books and loose sheets ..
If you do not understand something, the multilingual ings roland bnlux sontl to answer within you sympathy.
What about the sound is all ffective, it is even bluffing!
if you control the effects dja insert in eg parametrik specially voice, BD, SD, bass etc. .. you're on your way to a super rsultat.
being careful management of the effects s'avre trs tricky at first!
if not at the level of compression and the management is no worries frequency drives ..
dpend all the sound of what you are going home .. if you enresgistres a voice with a microphone 2 balls, get a sound even with 2 balls simulator insert microphone!
the great strength of the VS 2400CD is precisely n'tre a magneto and its power is ddi ca no sequencer etc., even if it can be used as table efficassement live mix well.
For the record I bought it 3 years .. by pif correspondance.j 'command had a yamaha 4416hdCD (same price) when the seller phon me to say it was over, he told me about the VS2400CD coming out and not in the catalog ..
I said ok and then I was right. unfortunately I benefitted youth of the product and had problem of lack of reliability of graveur.ROLAND I never gave up and sent me updates rgulirement days.
in short I am happy and trs highly recommend anyone who wants a clean record. go directly from my components vs. radios!
a pro musician asked me one day by listening to one of my songs if I had enregistrbr /> mixmasteris London? my rponse? no, my house in the alley .... derrire

ber-doc's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
The usage is very intuitive, more you can connect a mouse, a keyboard and a screen (there are even proposals to sell a desktop provides for less than 2500, I saw a on AudioFanzine)
The comprehensive tool available to the mix is very correct!
It's been a few months that I used this machine that I am fully satisfied!
