Hi All, I have a hardly used VS2400cd with effect chips. I never bought any additions like R-BUS. I am now using Cakewalk Sonar Professional pc . What can I do with the vs2400cd? Thanks. Joe

I'm thinking about selling it but I want to be sure that it will not be useful to me. Just a little more research and I'll make a decision... tbc

If you have inherited the VS2400 somehow then it provides an opportunity to move faders by hand which can be fun and riding faders is sometimes more useful than spending a lot of time trying to get the right compressor settings. Also, the plugins are excellent. The 1176 and LA2A emulations are about 90% the way towards the actual hardware. You will need to get used to copying a track or two (stereo) with a plugin on it to another track(s) to free up effects again but then you would need to do that if using the hardware and it can help to pay more attention to plugin settings.

The downsides are the steep learning curve and (for some) the RDAC compression. You can avoid RDAC by running the machine in M24 mode which will give you 24/44.1 or 24/48 but will limit you to 16 tracks. The learning curve pays dividens in that you will be making music in a somewhat different way that can feel more hands on and creative.

Maybe create 1 or 2 complete songs on the VS and see what you end up with?

I wouldn't sell it. You are unlikely to get enough for it and it has plenty of uses. The 2400CD is a great recorder and many here have found ways to use it with a computer.

Can you send messages from and from the DAW to the faders?

Yes, via R-Bus or MIDI.
