Not sure if I have asked this before.
I have a Roland VS2000cd that I have been using for years.
Can anyone please tell me how to get those individual tracks from that to Studio One 2.5.1?
Appreciate any help.

Took me a while, but after strenuously typing roland vs2000cd export into the search bar of my browser, google returned 22,600 results in 0.3 seconds. After reading the summary of the first link, I decided it wouldn't be as relevant as what we need. The second link, however, looked promising so I clicked on it. & found this article from SweetWater.

It doesn't get into the specifics of importing the files into StudioOne, but with its drag & drop functionality, how hard can it be to figure out? All you'd have to do is open a blank project in StudioOne. Open your file browser (Finder for Mac, WindowsExplorer for PC), navigate to the folder containing the files from your export, select all, then drag & drop.....

Whew... that was tough. I can understand why a person needing that information wouldn't have gone through all that themselves. I'm bushed, probably have to go hibernate for a month or so.

Hold on.... something got me to thinking, "Didn't the VS2000 come with a usb port?"

So I hit up google again. This time I was a little more cryptic with my inquiry, "roland vs2000cd usb"

This time it only took 0.25 seconds to get 10,200 results. Of course, I skipped the first result again (something from the Roland website... what do they know?) & clicked on the second link, SoundonSound (now they know their sht).


However, the USB port does allow files to be moved between the VS and any computer running the appropriate software. A CD-ROM supplied with the machine contains the relevant software for converting VS-format audio files into AIFF or WAV formats for editing or storage in a Mac/PC. Similarly, WAV and AIFF files residing in the computer can be converted to VS format for importing back into the multitracker. This can be done on a song-by-song basis or for individual tracks or phrases. The software is compatible with Windows ME, 2000, and XP, as well as with Apple Mac OS 10.2 or later.

Even if a computer is not available, it is still possible to save individual tracks out of the VS by burning them as WAV files to CD. Similarly, WAV files can be imported into the VS from CDs. Not only can the CD drive be used to back up project data and burn audio CDs in all the usual ways, but it's a player of both commercial and non-finalised CDs as well.


Now.... off to hibernate.
