Roland VS-2480DVD Digital Studio Workstation

The First V-Studio with DVD Archiving! The VS-2480DVD takes Roland's best-selling 24-track workstation and makes it even better with the addition of a DVD multi-drive for storing up to 4.7GB of data. Naturally, the VS-2480DVD has all the great features of the original—including 64-track digital mixing, motorized faders and VGA monitor support. It's also compatible with the new VS8F-3 Plug-In Effect Expansion Board, opening up a world of plug-in effects.

* Flagship 24-track digital studio workstation with internal DVD multi-drive
* Store up to 4.7GB of project data on a single DVD-R or DVD-RW disc!
* New 3rd party plug-in support via optional VS8F-3 Plug-In Effect Expansion Board

Massive 4.7GB Storage on Recordable DVD Discs
Thanks to a new DVD multi-drive, the VS-2480DVD lets users store up to 4.7GB of data on a single DVD disc. This is great for archiving an album's worth of songs—no more saving across multiple CDs! Of course, CD-R and CD-RW discs can also be used for normal CD burning.

New Plug-In Support with Optional VS8F-3
The VS-2480DVD supports the use of VS Plug-Ins by installing an optional VS8F-3 Plug-In Effect Expansion Board. Up to four boards can be installed, and each is capable of running two high-quality plug-ins from Roland, or optional 3rd party plug-ins from developers like Antares, Universal Audio, Massenburg, McDSP and more. This is the ultimate V-Studio for producers and songwriters alike.
