Hi, I own both.
It can be tricky connecting the VS2480 to a Boss DR880.
Whether the VS is in M24, M16, 48khz, 44.1khz once you connect the digital cable between the two units and turn on the VS2480 Digital In-Lock you will get sound. (edit of course only 44.1khz will be the proper pitch)
The Digital In-Lock is not a very accurate source when the digital out source is from a DR880.
You may want to use some other digital clock source in between the two. Though that may be tricky since the DR880 only has Digital Out and not a Digital In. I will let the people who use external digital timers chime in. I do not have a separate external dedicated digital clocking source.
To me, it is better to use the analog outputs of the DR880 because though the digital has a better signal to noise ratio, it is not phenomenally better. More importantly you can use the VS2480 midi sync track as your time source and then you are in a very accurate world of SYNC.
The Midi time (Midiclock or synctrack) will not be the source once you are using DIgital in -Lock. You will be able to use midi MMC.
WHich reminds me that the other BAD was that the DR880 will not work as the master. YOu will need to make the VS2480 the MASTER in these connections. I recall the DR880 not able to control the VS2480.
I will make a video today, since there is a blizzard and I am not at work.
