Introduction
Features of the VS8F-3
The VS8F-3 is an optional board that can be installed in an effect expansion slot of a
supported VS series unit to add or expand its effect-processing capabilities.
•
•
•
•
•
Switching between various effect programs written specifically for the VS8F-3
allows the VS8F-3 to produce different effects.
56-bit internal processing and up to 96kHz sound quality.
Runs up to two plug-ins per card.
Runs 2-stereo/4-mono plug-ins (at less than 48kHz) or 1-stereo/2-mono
plug-in(s) (at 64kHz or over).
Includes 5 Roland plug-ins.
■ What is a VS plug-in?
VS plug-in is the brand new concept that provides a standardized open-platform
development environment for plug-in effects.
Products (plug-in packages) that conform to this standard
bear the logo shown at the right (above).
Plug-ins that conform to this standard and are
manufactured by software developers other than Roland
bear the logo shown at the right (below), indicating that the
plug-in has been certified by Roland as a compatible VS plug-in.
Products bearing either of these logos are guaranteed to work correctly on the VS8F-3.
Checking the included items
Only the
VS-2480HD/2480CD/2400
CD support projects with
64kHz or higher sampling
rates.
What are plug-ins?
Switching between various
effect programs written
specifically for the VS8F-3
allows the VS8F-3 to
produce different effects.
These programs are called
“plug-ins” since you use
them just as though you
were “plugging-in” the
particular effect you want
to use.
The VS8F-3 carton contains the following items.

Before you use the VS8F-3
To use VS8F-3 in a VS series recorder, the system program version of the V Studio
must be compatible with the VS8F-3. Please check the system program version of your
VS series recorder before installing the VS8F-3. If you find the version is not compatible
with the VS8F-3, please update the software using the SETUP DISC contained in this
package. The update should be executed once prior to the installation of the VS8F-3. If you
find the system program version is compatible with the VS8F-3, the update is not
necessary.
On this chapter, the notes and cautions regarding installation of VS8F-3 are stated. Please
read carefully and install the board correctly.
Checking the system version of your VS series
1. On the VS-2480/2480CD/2400CD, power up your VS series device while holding down
[CH EDIT 1] + [TRACK STATUS 1]. On the VS-2000, power up your VS-2000 while
holding down [HARMONY] + [TRACK/STATUS 1].
Continue holding down these buttons until “Version Information” appears in the display.
2. Checking the system version of your VS series device.
If the version is lower than the version numbers given below, you must update the system
of your VS series device. Update the system as described below.
•
•
•
VS-2480/2480CD: Version 2.50 or later
VS-2400CD: Version 1.50 or later
VS-2000: Version 1.50 or later
Version number
of the current system
appears here.
■ Backing up your projects
To ensure the safety of your data, we recommend that you back up the projects saved on
your hard disk to other media, and then initialize your hard disk before updating the
system program. You can restore the backed-up projects to your internal hard disk using
the project RECOVER command.
When starting up in Step 1,
you must continue holding
down the buttons until the
lowest line of the screen
shows “Boot Condition:
System Information.”
The explanations in this
manual include
illustrations that depict
what should typically be
shown by the display.
Note, however, that your
unit may use a newer,
enhanced version of the
system (e.g., including
newer features), so what
you actually see in the
display may not always
match what appears in the
manual.
1. Back up projects (performance data) saved on the hard disk to CD-R/RW discs. As
described in the owner's manual, back up all projects that you want to keep. When doing
so, back up not only the projects in the current drive (partition), but also any projects that
are saved in other partitions.
2. Initialize the hard disk (Format Drive). Projects saved on the hard disk will be completely
erased, and the disk will be free of data. Initialize the hard disk as described in the
owner's manual of your VS series device.
When you execute the Format Drive (Make Partition) command, all projects saved on
the hard disk will be erased. It will not be possible to use the Undo function to
recover the erased projects. If you accidentally erase a project you wanted to keep,
there is no way to recover the project. Roland Corporation can assume no
responsibility whatsoever concerning the recovery of any lost content. Before you
execute the Format Drive (Make Partition) command, you must back up (Project
Backup) any project you want to keep.
3. Perform the Shutdown procedure (Owner’s Manual of V Studio “Turning Off the
Power”) and turn off the power of all equipment connected to the V Studio device.
6
“Format Drive” may be
described as “Make
Partition” in the owner's
manual if you purchased
version 1.xx of
VS-2480/2480CD. The
name of a function may
vary according to changes
in specifications, but this
will make no difference in
its operation.
VS8F-3_e.book 7 ページ 2004年3月31日 水曜日 午後4時38分
Before you use the VS8F-3
Using the SETUP DISC to update the system
version
Here's how to update the system program of your VS series device so that it will support
the VS8F-3. You'll need to perform this step just once for VS series devices whose system
does not yet support the VS8F-3. To update the system program of your VS series device,
use the “SETUP DISC” included in the package.
If you're using the VS-2480CD/2400CD/2000, you can update your system using the
internal CD-R/RW drive. If you're using the VS-2480HD (the model without an internal
CD-R/RW drive), you will need an external SCSI CD-RW drive for the update, such as
the VS-CDR-II/-III or a compatible Plextor CD drive. The VS-CDR-I can not be used for
this update.
■ Updating the system program of your VS series
1. Read Backing up your projects (p. 6).
We recommend that you back up the projects saved on your hard disk, and then initialize
the hard disk.
2. Turn on the power of the VS series device, and eject the disc tray.
If you have already
downloaded the most
recent system program
from the Roland website,
or already performed the
update using the SETUP
DISC (so that your unit
supports the VS8F-3), you
don't need to update
again.
Check the Roland website
http://www.roland.com/
for the latest system
upgrade for your product.
3. Place the SETUP DISC on the disc tray.
4. Close the disc tray.
5. Perform the Shutdown procedure (Owner’s Manual of V Studio “Turning Off the
Power”).
6. Turn on the power of the VS series device.
The opening title screen and the “Setup Drive” message will appear. The CD-R/RW drive
will be checked. Please wait. When the checking process is complete, the system will ask
“Update Main System Program?”
Projects and backup data
you created before
updating the system will
still be usable in their
existing form. (Data
compatibility is
preserved.)
7. If you want to update the system to the displayed version, press [ENTER/YES].
A message will ask “Keep User Setting?”
8. Specify whether you want to preserve your user routing, system setting and user effect
patch settings when the update is performed, or whether all of these settings are to be
initialized. Press [ENTER/YES] or [EXIT/NO] to make your selection.
• [ENTER/YES] ➔ settings will be preserved
• [EXIT/NO] ➔ settings will be initialized
If you decide not to
update, press [EXIT/NO].
The update process will be
halted, and the V Studio
will start up as usual.
The display will indicate “Main Update,” and the system update will begin.
If you pressed [EXIT/NO] in Step 8, the display will ask “Init User Setting Sure?” If you
are sure you want to initialize the settings, press [ENTER/YES].
If you decide you don't want to proceed with the initialization, press [EXIT/NO]. In this
case, you are returned to Step 8.
If you press [ENTER/YES] in response to “Init User Setting Sure?,” all settings will be
initialized to their factory defaults.
Never turn off the power
while the update is in
progress. Doing so will
destroy the operating
program of the VS series
device itself, and it will
no longer be possible to
start it up.
9. When the system update is completed, the disc tray of the CD-R/RW drive will open.
Remove the SETUP DISC.
10. Confirm that the “Please Reboot OK” message is displayed, then turn off the power of
the VS series device.
11. Turn on the power of the V Studio once again.
12. Check the version number that is displayed at start-up.

Before you use the VS8F-3
■ Recovering your projects
Restore the data that you had backed up in Backing up your projects (p. 6) back onto the
hard disk (Project Recovery).
Refer to the owner's manual of your VS series device, and restore your projects back onto
the hard disk.
Projects and backup data you created before updating the system will still be usable in
their existing form. (Data compatibility is preserved.)
Installing the VS8F-3
Installation of the VS8F-3 is exactly the same as installing the VS8F-2. Refer to the Quick
Start manual for your VS series device and to Rules for installing effect expansion
boards (p. 9), and install the VS8F-3 as directed.
Before you continue, you must read Using the SETUP DISC to update the system
version (p. 7) and complete the system program update for your VS series device.
■ Cautions When Installing an Effect Expansion Board
•
Before installing the effect expansion board, turn off the power of the VS series device
and all connected devices, and disconnect all cables from the VS series device.
•
When installing effect expansion boards, remove only the specified screws.
•
Should you remove screws, make sure to put them in a safe place out of children's
reach, so there is no chance of them being swallowed accidentally.
When turning the unit upside-down, get a bunch of newspapers or magazines, and
place them under the four corners or at both ends to prevent damage to the buttons
and controls. Also, you should try to orient the unit so no buttons or controls get
damaged.
To avoid the risk of damage to internal components that can be caused by static
electricity, please carefully observe the following whenever you handle the board.
• Before you touch the board, always first grasp a metal object (such as a water
pipe), so you are sure that any static electricity you might have been carrying
has been discharged.
• When handling the board, grasp it only by its edges. Avoid touching any of the
electronic components or connectors.
• Save the bag in which the board was originally shipped, and put the board back
into it whenever you need to store or transport it.
Use a Phillips screwdriver that is suitable for the size of the screw (a number 2
screwdriver). If an unsuitable screwdriver is used, the head of the screw may be
stripped.

To remove a screw, rotate the screwdriver counter-clockwise. To tighten a screw,
rotate the screwdriver clockwise.
Be careful that the screws you remove do not drop into the interior of the VS series.
Do not leave the bottom cover in a detached state. Be sure to reattach it after the effect
expansion boards have been installed.
Do not touch any of the printed circuit pathways or connection terminals.
Be careful not to cut your hand on the edge of the installation bay.
Never use excessive force when installing a circuit board. If it doesn’t fit properly on
the first attempt, remove the board and try again.
When circuit board installation is complete, double-check your work.

Rules for installing effect expansion boards
■ What is the Key Card?
It is necessary to authorize the effect programs with individual ID of your VS8F-3 prior to
installing and using the effect programs on the VS series device. The VS8F-3 used for the
authorization is called the “Key Card.” The VS plug-in programs can function when a Key
Card is present. To authorize the effects programs with the Key Card correctly, the Key
Card must be installed according to the rules stated below.
■ Rule 1
On the VS-2480/2480CD/2400CD, effect expansion boards must be installed in order
starting from EFFECT A (the first one).
On the VS-2000, effect expansion boards must be installed in order starting from EFFECT
B (the first one).
You must not leave the first effect slot vacant, or skip any slots when you install boards.
For details, refer to Where
to install the VS8F-3
(Checking the first slot)
(p. 10)
■ Rule 2
When installing the VS8F-3, you must install it as follows in conformity with Rule 1. When
the VS8F-3 in the first slot (the Key Card, shown here in bold type) is authorized, Key Card
data is written to the hard disk together with the VS plug-in program.

Installing plug-in effects in the V Studio
VS plug-in programs for the VS8F-3 are provided on a SETUP DISC, and thus cannot be
used by the VS8F-3 without installation to the hard disk.
Before you can use a VS plug-in program, you must write it into the internal hard disk of
your VS series unit. This process is referred to as “installing a VS plug-in program.”
■ Authorized and Trial versions
The installed VS plug-in programs come in two forms: an Authorized version and a Trial
version.
The version that is installed depends on what you select during installation, or on the state
of the SETUP DISC you use.
An authorized version lets you use the full functionality of the VS plug-in program, while
a trial version imposes several limitations on use.
Authorized version
A VS plug-in program installed as an authorized version lets you use the full functionality
of the program.
To install the authorized version, use a SETUP DISC that has not yet been used for
authorization, and select “AUTHORIZE” during the installation.
When the authorized version is installed, data describing the combination of the VS8F-3
(Key Card) installed in the first effect slot (p. 10) and the VS plug-in program is stored to
the hard disk of V Studio along with the installed program. This means that in order to use
an authorized VS plug-in program, you must use it in conjunction with the Key Card
VS8F-3. If the Key Card is not installed, the functions of effects programs will be limited
as with the trial version, described below.
Trial version
•
•
A VS plug-in program installed as a trial version can be used with several limitations.
The program will be installed as a trial version in the following cases.
When you are using a SETUP DISC that has not yet been used for authorization and you
select “TRIAL” during the installation.
In case you are installing effect programs on a V Studio without a Key Card from a
SETUP DISC after authorization or from a backup of a SETUP DISC.
If you're using the
VS-2480CD/2400CD/2000,
you can install your
system using the internal
CD-R/RW drive. If you're
using the VS-2480HD (the
model without an installed
CD-R/RW drive), you will
need an external SCSI
CD-RW drive for the
installation, such as the
VS-CDR-II/-III or a
compatible Plextor CD
drive. The VS-CDR-I can
not be used for this
installation.
An already-authorized
SETUP DISC cannot be
used to install an
authorized version for a
different VS8F-3 board.
Trial versions have the following limitations.
• Plug-in effect parameters are not saved when you execute Store Current Project on
your VS series unit.
• User patches cannot be saved.
• The audio output from VS series will be muted at regular intervals.
• The popup message of “You are using trial version” is displayed at regular
intervals.
Using the following methods, you can avoid the muting and popup message.
• Uninstall the VS plug-in program trial version
• Reload the current project
• Press [F4 (UnSel)] in PLUG-IN SELECT screen
In both of the above cases, the VS8F-3 will be set to NO PLUG-IN status (no plug in
program is loaded).

Effect Algorithm
■ What are VS plug-in Programs?
VS plug-in programs are programs created specifically for the VS8F-3.
Each of these programs consists of
• Algorithms that produce the effect
• Programs for communication between the VS series unit and the VS8F-3
• Preset patch data that contains settings for each of the plug-in effect's parameters
■ About the effect algorithms
“Effect algorithm” refers to each effect like Reverb or Chorus. It also includes effect packages that contain multiple algorithms. Two effect
algorithms (multi-type and single-type) can be simultaneously produced by a VS8F-3.
The “Multi-Type” effect algorithm
Two different multi-type effect algorithms can coexist on a VS8F-3.
You can operate and change these effect algorithms independently.
In this manual, explanations that apply to multi-type effect algorithms are indicated by an Multi icon.
The “Single-Type” effect algorithm
Effect Algorithms of single-type effects require all the processing power of one VS8F-3 board. You can use one single-type plug-in effect
on each VS8F-3.
In other words, you can't use two single-type VS plug-in programs on one VS8F-3, nor can a multi-type and a single-type program
coexist.
In this manual, explanations that apply to single-type effect algorithms are indicated by an
icon.
About the spec of VS plug-in programs for input and output
In this manual, explanations that apply to 1stereo in-1stereo out-type programs are indicated by an
icon.
In this manual, explanations that apply to 2mono in-2mono out-type programs are indicated by an
icon.
■ About the included Roland VS plug-ins
Each VS8F-3 includes five Roland plug-ins that can be installed from a SETUP DISC included in the box. The VS8F-3 recalls the following
VS plug-in programs from the hard disk and changes its effect algorithm accordingly.

This is a compressor that divides the input signal into frequency bands (High, Middle, and Low) and regulates the volume of each band.
When mixing down to MD or DAT, or when using a CD-R disc to produce an original audio CD, you can apply this effect to master your
song at the optimal level.

algorithm, this problem is bypassed by using the input sound only for level detection and adding a specified length of delay to the
sound for processing and output. “Detect Time” under Input is the setting of the delay time for this purpose. Note that supplying
Detect Time causes a time difference between input and output of the audio signals, requiring due considerations if used for
purposes other than mastering (ex. channel insertion).

Effect Algorithm
Tempo Mapping Effect
This is a stereo delay that lets you specify the delay time relative to the tempo. Since you can set the delay time as a note value length,
you don't have to perform annoying manual calculations to determine the time based on the tempo.
Because this can be synchronized to the MIDI clock from the VS series unit, it will automatically follow any tempo changes during the
song.

■ Synchronizing with the MIDI clock
Here’s how you can make the Tempo Mapping Effect synchronize with the MIDI Clock transmitted by the VS series unit.
1. On VS-2480/2480CD, press [UTILITY]. On VS-2400CD/2000, press [SHIFT]+[F4 (UTILITY)].
The UTILITY Screen will appear.
2. Press [F6 (SYNC)] on Page 1.
The SYNC PARAMETER Screen will appear.
3. Set the following parameters.

SYNC MODE
MIDI OUT SYNC Gen.
INT
MIDIclk or Sync Tr (‘1)
(*1) If you choose the SyncTr, you must prepare a sync track in advance. When you set the MIDI OUT SYNC Gen. parameter to
MIDIclk or SyncTr, the MIDI clock signal will output from the MIDI OUT connector.
TEMPO

SYNC (Sync Switch)
25~250
OFF, ON
Specifies the base tempo
On/off switch for synchronization with the MIDI clock of the VS (*2)
(*2) If SYNC is On, the base tempo (TEMPO) is ignored.
The pitch of the delay sound may vary according to tempo changes. In particular, noise may occur if there are sudden
changes in tempo. To avoid this, you'll need to ensure that the effect is not receiving input until the tempo changes
have stabilized.
It may take some time for Tempo Mapping Effect to synchronize with the project's tempo if Tempo Map in project is
immediately changed.

4band EQ (4band Equalizer) ➔p. 20
When using the Tempo Mapping Effect (TME) and a new tempo has been entered into a Tempo Map, please
reduce the input signal to the TME by manually switching off the appropriate Aux Send(s) on the source
channel(s), prior to the tempo map change. (i.e. On the affected snare drum's channel, set Aux Send 1 Sw to OFF if
the TME is in the FX1 position, before the tempo change.)
This will avoid possible pitch changes of the delay effect while changing tempos. Switch on the Aux Send after the
new tempo has stabilized to hear the Tempo Mapping Effect again....synchronized with the new tempo.
Alternatively, Automix snapshots can be used to automatically perform this function, as well as change Aux Send
and FX Return values as needed.

Sound types
Sounds around us can be analyzed and categorized into three types: direct sounds, early reflections
and reverberation. A direct sound is the sound that reaches the listener directly from the source. An
early reflection is the sound that has rebounded from the wall once, twice or several times. A
reverberation is the sound we hear after sound reflections are repeated many times.

Reflected sounds reach the listener in the following sequence. The pre-delay is the time
from when the direct sound is heard until the reverb is heard. The reverb time is the time
over which the reverb decays to silence.

Reverb Time
The sound quality of a reverb is affected by materials of the walls and other members from
which the sound is reflected. This is because the degree of attenuation in the High and Low frequency bands varies. HF-Damp Gain
and LF-Damp Gain are provided so that you can adjust such attenuation degrees. The smaller the value becomes, the steeper the
degree of attenuation of the reverberation becomes in the High and Low frequency bands.
In addition, in order to obtain softer reverberation, make the frequency lower by using HF-Damp Frequency. In order to obtain
harder reverberation, make the frequency higher by using the LF-Damp Frequency parameter.
