Was curious if anyone is using a footswitch with their 2480? If so, what brand? I'm thinking of getting one and was hoping for some insight.

I tried it for punch in/out, but there's some kinda bug in the software that makes it not work right. I think it may have been fixed on 2.505 update, but I don't have midi capability, so I can't do that update.

The Roland manual lists it as a Boss FS-5U, which is a non-latching footswitch (only stays activated as long as your foot is on it).

That switch should still be available at most big music stores or online, about $27.00.

Also: I found out that Boss FS-5U switch has another switch on it to select whether it's normally-open or normally-closed, making it more useful. I think the VS needs a normally-open switch.
