Hi all,

I have a VS8f-3 card for a VS-2480 and contacted Roland to see if they could send a replacement Setup CD in order to setup the 5 Plug ins on the 2480.

However I received a response a few days ago saying that they no longer send out the Setup CD, even saying that they discontinued them 13 years ago!

To clarify, is this Setup CD required in order for it to accept any plug ins or just the original 5 Roland plugins or is the card not usable without the Setup CD authorising the card to the VS2480?

Also does anyone have a copy of the Setup CD or know where these can be sourced from as at the moment it would appear the VS8F-3 is useless, unless it can be used with other plugins still?

I always find it odd when companies like Roland create mandatory software which they don't then release when the product is discontinued, it seems like such a waste.

Any direction would be helpful as I would really like to get the VS8F-3 up and running.

Kind Regards Patrick

Patrick,

You asked the question:

"Is this Setup CD required in order for it to accept any plug ins or just the original 5 Roland plugins or is the card not usable without the Setup CD authorizing the card to the VS2480?"

The VS8F3 card is usable without a Setup CD IF you have *another* VS8F3 card that has a plugin authorized to that key card.

In other words, a lone VS8F3 card without a setup CD can absolutely be used in the #2, #3, or #4 position, as a means to garner other mono or stereo instantiations of an effect, but IF and ONLY IF, there is a VS8F3 card in the #1 position that has plugins keyed to it and those plugins are installed to the hard drive.

I have a VS8F3 card with a Roland setup CD that I am willing to let go of for $250

Please feel free to reach out to me either via text, PM, call and/or email should this interest you.

All the Best,
