The optional VS20-VGA adds a VGA output and mouse port for mouse-based graphical editing and control. In addition to 18 playback tracks (320 Virtual tracks), the VS-2000 offers two tracks for bouncing or mixdown (great mastering tools too!).

    Optional Roland VS20VGA expansion board required for use with monitor and mouse.

    V-LINK video control support*

    *V-LINK requires Edirol DV-7PR with software version 1.50 or higher (sold separately).

    The VS-2000 is equipped with 8 XLRs with phantom power for 8 track simultaneous record. The 40-channel automated digital mixer has 4 band EQ and dynamics on every channel. Full automix is supported with 96 scenes, 96 locates and 999 levels of undo. If the 40GB drive isn't enough for you, use the USB2.0 to save all your projects, import drum PCMs or transfer .WAV/AIFF mixes and files.

    Speaking of drum PCMs, the 2000 includes a killer sample based drum machine with cool programming graphics. Use buttons and faders to "play" your own drum grooves. To help you make better recordings, all sorts of guitar effects and models are included (as well as a dedicated Hi-Z input and a tuner). Vocal-wise, add instant harmonies with the Harmony Sequence Function. Getting around is a breeze with dedicated input strip knobs.

    The VS-2000 defaults to 16 bit linear, but 24 bit recording and playback can be selected (14 tracks with drums). The VS-2000 includes a VS8F-2, hardwired, with slots for two more cards (see the VS8F-3 section). V-Link allows for video/music integration using an Edirol video editor to trigger effects and clips.

    Professional Recording at a Great Price
    The VS-2000CD offers CD-quality recording at a choice of 16 or 24 bits. When in 16-bit mode, up to eight tracks can be recorded simultaneously with full 18-track playback and a stereo mastering track. Choose the high-quality 24-bit mode, and you get up to 8-track simultaneous recording and 12-track playback. An internal 40GB hard drive provides hours of reliable multitrack recording, while 320 Virtual Tracks give you all the room you need to be creative and 'comp' the perfect take.

    40-Channel Digital Mixer with XLR Inputs
    Whether you want to mic up a drum set or record multiple vocalists, you'll appreciate the VS-2000CD's eight XLR/TRS inputs with phantom power. Want to record a guitar? There's a Hi-Z input as well, plus a S/PDIF digital input. The VS-2000CD's 40-channel digital mixer makes mixing inputs, tracks and effect returns a snap'thanks to 17 faders and dedicated Channel Edit knobs. In addition, there are four knobs for controlling the dynamics and 4-band EQ for any input or track.

    Studio-Quality Effects and CD-RW Drive
    Right out of the box, the VS-2000CD comes with onboard effects that include essentials like reverb, delay and chorus, plus dynamics processors, EQ and more. You also get access to Roland's coveted COSM
