Can someone please explain...in layman’s terms, what RBUS is used for? I have an MacBook Pro from 2009 which maybe why I’m not in the loop with RBUS.

Cheers croaky

It's just roland's proprietary way of communicating with other roland gear. Connecting two rbus devices allows them to move 8 tracks from one to the other digitally.

Only a few devices are rbus equipped.
It is not the same pin layout as the regular older computer cable that you may have seen before.

Peace,
Ian

Can't think of a way you'd use R-BUS with a MacBook. But, as you're posting in the VS-2480 section, here are a couple of ways I use it with mine:
* an Edirol DA2496 to provide 8 more ins/outs
* a Roland MV-8800 to keep data in the digital domain when transferring/mixing

Likewise, you could use it for connecting the XV-5080 synth.

Not for me then, I don’t need or want anymore inputs or outputs. I’m more for keeping it simple now days....

”less is more” who said that?

Just thought it might enhance my workflow.

Cheers croaky
