When starting a new song project I'm just wondering how folks set their VS2480 up for tracking a session?

I'm (tentatively!) working on my first song using my newly acquired VS2480 and it's a bit different to my last machine. My old recorder was sort of marketed for recording WITH effects printed (there were lots of presets for this purpose).

With the VS2480 I find I'm recording completely 'dry' with no processing and ... it's different. If this is my way forward it will take a bit of getting used to no doubt. (I only have the one factory-installed FX card which I guess is best saving for adding effects post-recording, right?)

Am I right in my thinking here that, with a unit like this, it's best practice to record 'flat' as it were then add in/on any Comp/EQ/FX/etc at the mixing stage?

You can apply any effect while recording, but as I mentioned in the other thread, seriously consider using loop effects. If you insert the effect while recording it's printed to the track. By looping everything you'll have far more wiggle room.
