I've moved on to a DAW, so I'm selling at least one of my 2480s now, and the other later (or maybe now - see below); as well as some HD caddies. The one I'm selling has "the fix", and was previously owned by VS Planet user Steve Walker. It has been stored in the case for almost 2 years. It worked fine the last time I used it, but I'm selling it as-is because of the time in storage. I really don't want to ship, so if you're near the SF bay area, we can meet somewhere.
Items for sale:
1 VS2480 HD with "the fix", loaded w/ 4 VS8F2 cards. Includes vinyl cover, flat screen monitor, keyboard, mouse.
1 VS2480 hard case (the Roland branded one).
1 CD Rack CD-ROM burner with external HD slot (empty). This is the original rack mount unit offered as an accessory to the 2480.
1 HD caddy, with a new Seagate Barracude drive. It has not been formatted, but is identical to the one I use in my other 2480.
1 SCSI2SD box, with cable. This works great for transferring files via micro SD card to a PC so you can convert them to .wav files. I've used it for this purpose many times, without any failure at all. You can also record directly to it, but I don't know how reliable that would be.
1 "The VS Encyclopedia" book, including the unused instructional DVDs; and 1 "Roland VS Recorder" book.
This is all for sale for $1100, obo.
If you want the other 2480 HD as well (doesn't have "the fix"; including 4x VS8F2, all peripherals, vinyl cover, and Roland soft case) , you can buy it for an additional $600. I've used it recently and it works great.
Both machines have low usage, and are well maintained with a few light scuffs.
I also have several HD caddies for sale at $100 each, plus shipping. Some have HDs that came with them, but are untested.
Let me know if you're interested.
