Hi,
I am about to buy a VS2480 with 2 VS8F-3 installed. The previous owner does not seem to have much knowledge about the machine, but he says that he can find the cards from the menus in the machine (which proves that they work) but it is not possible to use any FX of VS8F-3. Not even the 5 stock Roland FX. The setup CD is lost, so its not possible to reinstall.
I guess that the machine has been formatted so all FX disappeared, and then they were not reinstalled due to lost cd.

My questions:
1. Is it possible to use the 5 stock roland FX on VS8F-3 without the setup CD? (Previous owner says no)
2. Is it possible to activate the 5 stock roland FX and any previously bought FX plugins with the CD?
3. Where can I get or buy the CD?

Hi there,
To answer your questions:

1: No, but the roland stock plug-in program does not need authorisation so you can easily re-install a downloaded version from the roland support website. look for VS8F-3
2: Roland plug-ins do not need to be activated. Others can only be activated with the original cd or with a back-up cd from the formerly installed and activated plugin.
3: Simply burn your own cd from the download. (3rd party plug-ins will only work as demo)

The 5 bundled Roland plugins need to be authorized or they'll install as a trial version. You can purchase new Roland "SETUP DISCS" of these 5 plugins on ebay or reach out to me, I've got a couple of new ones lying around the studio I'd sell (never opened, never installed, so you can install onto any 3 card.)

Just buy them from Roland. They're still available and they're only like $10, plus shipping.
Why spend $50 ???
