The VS-1680, VS-1880 and VS-1824CD do not have computer integration and cannot be connected directly to a computer. These devices record in a proprietary audio format created by Roland and the VS recorders don't have WAV conversion functionality--to export your tracks as audio files to a computer. However, a third party developer designed software years ago to convert VS CD backups into WAV files. You may download the software by clicking on the link below:
- Roland is, in no way, affiliated with the VS WAV Export software or it's designers. Please contact the software designers/developers directly for information regarding support and operational questions with this software.
Another option would be to pass audio into computer software in real-time using an audio interface. To accomplish this, you will connect the audio outputs of your VS recorder to the inputs of an audio interface:
- The SCSI port on the back panel is for connecting an external CD, HDD or Zip drive and does not have computer integration functionality.
- There is not a USB or Firewire adapter available to connect the VS recorder to a computer.
