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.
