There are sixteen 1/4" TRS (phone plug) inputs (#16 can be switched to Hi-Z).
There are eight XLR (mic) inputs.

It can also accept "R-Bus" (Roland proprietary) inputs (six, I think).

Is that what you needed?

8 inputs on the RBUS ( we use the rack for I/O of our effects ) We have dual TSR snakes in the 16 inputs --- and we use the SPDIF input for our preamps

Actually C Jo Go, you can have 16 inputs of digital coming from the R-BUS if you use both R-BUS 1 & R-BUS 2.

Since with the 2 RBUS connections you can record 16 inputs, does that mean you could use 8 of the onboard input to record at the same time as the RBUS connections, giving you 24 inputs simultaneously?

16 analog
16 R-BUS
32 total options BUT the input mixer maxes out at 24 channels


(plus stereo SPDIF coaxial or optical)

(the 16 analog inputs all have 1/4 inch jacks, 8 of them also have XLR jacks)

You get fewer than 24 simultaneously if you move to higher resolution recording modes.

Yes , many inputs ...
But note that you can "only" record maximum 16 channels at once ( in MTP mode )
Still pretty good for this old machinery and compared to modern computers and
interfaces / sound cards ..... Or ???

Cheers !

Never ventured into MTP mode --- always needed every channel. ;\)

We use our 3 keyboards and the sequencer at mixdown ( all 16 inputs ) and the SPDIF is connected to our preamps ,,,,

So we get about 40 channels at mixdown... a RBUS carries 8 channels of rack effects....

Yeah, OK ... But still only 16 channels can be recorded at once \:\)
If you dont have 2 ( or more ) VS-2480īs , then you can record
32 channels at once ( or more ) if you want to ......
Just trying to clarify for the OP
If that was his question ..... Not quite sure what he asked about

Cheers !

The inputs able to be recorded simultaneously was the question.
16 at a time then, no matter from which input they originate, RBUS or others.

Yep, thatīs correct Heartwaves. And your question was perfectly clear. \:\)
I was referring to the OP ( original poster , glensimonds ) question
when i wrote "not quite sure what he asked about" .....

An important point: the number of inputs does not equal the number of tracks that can be recorded at once. Thanks, CatW for correcting my error.
