I am a new user and would like somebody to show me the basics, like how to route to record a track, accessing and editing effects, etc. Just the basics. I've used the 1680 for years but the 2480 is very different. Please get in touch to discuss.

Here’s how to record audio onto Track 1 using the
built-in LCD.

Create a New Project

settings when creating a new project.
3. Press F5 (OK)—“Create New Project, Sure?” is
displayed. Press ENTER/YES.
Note: If “Store Current?” appears, press ENTER/YES

Adjust Input Levels
1. Connect a dynamic microphone to either the
XLR or the 1/4” INPUT 1 jack.
2. Press the IN 1-16 button so it lights.
3. Raise the Input 1 fader to 0db.
4. Press F1 (INPUT) on the main display to view
the input meter.
5. While speaking or singing into the mic, adjust the
input SENS knob beneath the INPUT 1 jacks so
that the displayed level is between –4 and –12.

Record Your Performance
1. Press the TR 1-16 button.
2. To select and arm Track 1, press the TRACK

indicate that the VS-2480DVD is ready to record.
5. Press PLAY—REC and TRACK STATUS Button
1 light solid red to show you’ve begun recording.
6. Press STOP when you’re done recording.
7. Press ZERO to return to the beginning of the
project. Press PLAY to listen to the track and, if
necessary, adjust Track 1’s listening level again.

Add Reverb to a Recorded Track

Use the following procedure to listen to Track 1 with
reverb added:
1. Press the EFFECT button.
2. Press F1 (FX1) and then press F1 (PATCH).
3. Highlight “P046 RV: Vocal Plt” and press F5

5. Highlight “dB” in the AUX 1 box.
6. Press TRACK STATUS 1 until it lights green,
