Hi All,
There is a person on craigslist near me selling a si-24 for $50. I already own 2 vs2480s and I have them connected via midi.
Let me know if I am missing something. My understanding is that if I were to get a SI-24 and connect it via RBUS with the VS2480 I am just getting the usage of the SI-24s 8 mic inputs.

Seems like it might not be worth it. It would take up valuable desk space were I to get it.

Anyone in here using the the si24 with a VS240?

Cheers,
Ian

Ian:

You WILL get the 8 SI-24 mIc inputs, however, this will NOT add 8 to the 2480's 16.

The 2480 has a max number of 16 inputs, regardless of how they are connected. If you connect 8 additional inputs via R-BUS, you trade those for 8 of the internal inputs.

Be aware, too, that SI-24 phantom power is only 15v, instead of the standard 48.

The -24 makes a very good control surface for REAPER. The motorized faders are handy-- but as a 2480 user you already know that,

Hope this helps you think. $50 is a steal for te -24. IIRC, mine was $300 used about eight years ago.

Not true, surely? You can route any or all 8 of the R-BUS inputs via the Patchbay (e.g. to input channels 17-24). You just have to chose whether to give up the Coaxial and/or Optical stereo inputs for 4 of them.

Sadly, it is true that you will not gain an extra 8 inputs. You will simply trade the 8 inputs you assign (1-8, 9-16) from the 2480 to the si-24.

I'd grab it for $50.

The 2480 makes a great control surface for Reaper, too.

Yes it does. The -24 and the 2480 use the same control overlay, so set one up and you're good for the other as well.

Thanks for the info. Doesn't sound like I need it.
I'll pass.

Cheers,
Ian
