VS-1824CD

24-bit Digital Workstation

VS-1824CD
Discontinued

For professional recording at a remarkably affordable price, the VS-1824CD 24-bit Digital Studio Workstation is hard to beat. This 18-track V-Studio is loaded with 288 Virtual Tracks, 28-channel automated digital mixing and onboard effects including cosm¨ Guitar Amp and Microphone modeling. It's also the first portable V-Studio to include an internal CD-RW drive for easy data backup, creation of audio CDs and direct import of loops into tracks.

Massive 18-Track/288 V-Track Recording

Though capable of playing 18 tracks at mixdown, the VS-1824CD can record up to 288 tracks per project using “Virtual Tracks.” So whether trying alternate takes and solos, or “comping” the perfect vocal track, you’ll never run out of space. And with 28 channels of automated digital mixing with Scene recall, you can create polished mixes just like the pros.

Built-In Hard Drive and CD-RW

With a 10GB hard drive, the VS-1824CD has enough space to record an entire album’s worth of music. Not just large in capacity, this special drive was carefully selected to ensure optimum performance for recording and playing back digital audio. And with a high-speed CD-RW drive built-in, it’s the first V-Studio to offer a complete, portable digital recording and mastering solution.

*Note that internal hard drive is not user-replaceable.
Onboard COSM Effects

The VS-1824CD includes effects ranging from dynamics, EQ, reverb and delay to chorus, flanger, Voice Transformer, COSM Guitar Amp Modeling and more. And with COSM Mic Modeling—now optimized for the AKG C 3000B—you can use a variety of studio microphones without having to own them all! Want more effects? Just add an optional VS8F-2 Effects Expansion Board for a total of four stereo/eight mono effects.

Expanded CD Functions

With the VS-1824CD, getting your music on CD is easy. Just mix down to the Master Track using the Mastering Tool Kit, and press the CD-RW Mastering button! You can even “rip” audio with the new CD Capture function—great for importing loops or creating mix CDs. And with the new CD Writing Mode, you can record in Audio CD Format for even faster burning.
