Hi, I want to expand my vs2400cd, but I cant seem to find an SI24 or DIF AT24 that I could couple to another ADAT preamp. Is there another option to expand it besides these two things?

Roland made an 8 ch pre + AD/DA converter that outputs direct to RBUS, negating the need for a DIF-AT24. Unfortunately they're no longer sold new, rare on the secondhand market (I don't believe they were a popular seller), apparently not particularly amazing sounding and, if the last sale on VSP I can find is any indication ($650), still quite pricey.

For not much more you could have a Presonus Digimax FS and a DIFAT-24. I can vouch for the sound quality of this combination, a marked improvement over the VS pres. Plus the Presonus with its ADAT outputs would be useful in non-Roland VS/VM setups, unlike the ADA 7000.

SI-24s come up from time to time and seem to be reasonably priced considering they're a motorized fader control surface. The mic pres are the same as the usual VS2xx0 fare, very useable but not amazing, but the phantom power voltage they output is well under spec (I've heard as low as +15V) so they're perhaps not ideal for getting the best out of a quality condenser mic.

Cheers, Ben.

I think the DIF-AT24 would give you the best options at expansion since it enables you to utilize any ADAT preamp units. I've used one for years, hooked to a Focusrite Octopre via the ADAT connection.
There is one on Ebay currently with the bid at $250. It has the RBUS cable...which you would need have to use the interface. (I think I paid around $300 for mine brand new) . Check it out if you like...

Good luck!

I use a Roland VM-7100 digital mixing processor with the VM-24e R-BUS expander to give me 10 analog inputs along with 16 additional R-BUS channels. I don't have the VS-C7x00 master controller, but programmed my Behringer BCR2000 to control it.
