Hi! First post here, great site! OK, long time BR1600 user here. I clocked a VS2480 in the window of a pawn shop las week and, before I knew it, it was in my possession! No plans to buy one prior to my casual shopping excursion so most definitely what you'd refer to as 'one of those impulsive buys'! Hey! In for a penny, in for a pound an' all that! I've always promised myself 24 available tracks to record on so NOW is THAT time!(I was getting very jaded with running out of playback tracks on the BR1600 and all the sub-mixing involved in order to free up more tracks). Anyway, now this thing is mine, I'm disappointed to realise that the VS2480 is of the 'pre-USB era'. I've been used to a workflow of doing all my tracking on the BR1600 then SIMPLY bringing my tracks into my laptop (via USB using 'WaxExport') to edit in Reaper. What I do like on first investigation here is VS2480 is its default recording resolution 'MTP' enabling 24 bit (compressed, right?) recording across all 24 tracks = very nice! What I don't understand is why you seemingly can't export these 24-bit tracks as .WAV format to a CD 'DATA' disc (someone tell me you can!) BUT(!), while on the question of CD transfer, it seems that the CD drive in this machine isn't working anyway! In light of this, I was wondering how easy (or diffilcult!) it might be to take these 24-bit MTP recorded tracks (recorded to the internal IDE HDD) and copy them over to an external HD connected to the SCSI port on the back of the unit? (Of course, if this is poss, then I'd need to work out how to get said information from this 'portable' ext. HD into my (new-ish)Dell laptop running Windows 10 & (64-bit) Reaper ... but that's a whole other can of worms (right? ). So, for now at least, my question is: Is it possible to copy the information recorded to my internal hard drive out to an external hard drive connected to the SCSI out port on the back of the VS2480? (One step at a time sweet Jesus!)

Welcome, Mr Spock! There are several ways - one being to burn a project back up disc on the 2480 via scsi drive (or install a new dvd drive in the internals place), then use a software called VS Wave Export (do a search of this forum) and then convert that data to WAV on your lap top.

Depending on what version os is loaded onto your 2480, you *can* export tracks as wavs onto a data disc but this is SUPER SLOW..much faster converting project back up discs.

Another way would be the VIR-dis system which I have never tried. Good luck and enjoy that classic machine!

Thanks for your reply wjgypsy! Guess what, I got my built in CD writer working (loose SCSI connection inside - guess I just got lucky!) When I say 'CD writer' it actually says (now I look closely!) 'DVD Multi-corder' so I'm guessing it might burn to DVD too. I also note I'm running OS 2.50 and my (far newer by about 17 years) laptop is running Windows 10. To establish my CD (DVD?) burner was working properly I did some test recordings in 'MTP mode' and used 'Track Export' to send & burn the tracks to a CD-RW (NB: as a Data disc). Much to my surprise after uploading the files (as .wavs using WIndows Media Player) I was very pleased to see that they had come across in 24-bit resolution an dfrom there I pulled them into Repear to fine edit = great stuff! (Now ALL I need to do (LOL!) is learn how to use Compression in my mixes - never really understood that!) I can tell a BIG learning curve lies ahead ...

PS: Am I right in thinking that this 'VS Wave Export' ISN'T going to work with Windows 10?

I'm running Windows 10 and Reaper, and the .wav download works perfectly. Don't recommend using DVD's though as they are problematic at times.

Ahh! Brill. Gonna try that then, fingers crossed! (I had ruled it out after reading somewhere that 'VS Wave Export' wouldn't work with anything after Window OS: 'XP' (and only with Reaper 32 bit). Off to investigate. CHEERS!

Hmm ... when I go to click on the extracted 'VS Wave Export' programme in Windows 10 this end I'm getting the following error message: 'Component MSCOMCTL.OCX or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid'
