  • Graphical Editing Support

Professional Recording Quality and Creative Headroom The VS-2000CD offers CD-quality recording at a choice of 16 or 24 bits. In CD-standard 16-bit mode you can record up to eight simultaneous tracks and play back 18 tracks plus a stereo mastering track. Choose 24-bit mode and you get up to 8-track simultaneous recording and 12-track playback. 320 Virtual Tracks give you all the room you need to exercise your creativity and make "comp" tracks. The VS-2000CD's internal 40GB hard drive provides hours of reliable multi track recording. 40-Channel Digital Mixer with XLR Inputs Give You Pro Flexibility 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, four knobs allow control of 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® effects like guitar amp and mic modeling. When you're ready to master, select the Mastering Tool Kit with multi-band compression and burn a CD via the internal CD-RW drive. Now - Your Choice of Optional 3rd Party Plug-Ins Install an optional VS8F-3 Effect Expansion Board (the VS-2000CD has room for two) and you can bring the exciting world of professional plug-ins right to your VS-2000CD. Every VS8F-3 includes a selection of high-quality Roland plug-ins to get you started, and with optional plug-ins available from a growing list of 3rd party developers - including Antares, IK Multimedia, Massenburg and Universal Audio-it's an exciting time to own a V-Studio. Helpful Tools for Better Recordings The VS-2000CD comes with several new tools designed to help you make better recordings - and better music. The new Harmony Sequence function lets vocalists add instant harmonies to their performance. You can even program drums on Tracks 17-18 using the new Rhythm Track feature. With lots of preset drum sounds included, it's like having a built-in drum machine! A handy chromatic tuner is also included so guitarists can tune up before recording. Includes Graphical Editing Support Add the optional VS20-VGA Output Board (with Version 2.0 software) and you'll gain full mouse and monitor support - making the VS-2000CD feel more like using software. Simply connect your VGA monitor and mouse, and you can perform drag-and-drop editing and mix your tracks using a sleek software interface. With a mouse and monitor, the VS-2000CD gives you the best of both worlds: reliable Roland hardware with the speed and flexibility of software. Do More with USB 2.0 With USB 2.0, you can transfer data between the VS-2000CD and a computer quickly and easily. USB 2.0 offers more than twice the bandwidth of the previous USB standard, making it faster than ever to load audio to and from your V-Studio. Using the bundled conversion software for Mac and PC, you can transfer V-Studio files to your computer desktop, where they can be converted to .WAV or AIFF format. Or simply use the built-in CD-RW drive to load and convert .WAV/AIFF files, or convert V-Studio files to .WAV format for export. Use V-LINK for Audio/Visual Integration! Thanks to Roland's V-LINK technology, you can easily integrate video material with your music. Just connect an optional Edirol video editor, and you can trigger video clips or create effects like transitions and dissolves using the VS-2000CD's faders. Roland VS-2000CD Features:
