These VS8F-2 cards are the thing unless you want to spend several thousand dollars for outboard equipement, I still use lexicon verbs on vocals but you do get very usefull effects out of these cards and they are pro quality and easy to use.
The VS8F-2 does exactly what it claims: it'll give you two more channels for your built-in FX on your Roland VS recorder.I mean, if you're currently running on the stock two channels of FX and having to run effects, recording the effected tracks to virtual tracks, then applying other effects on different tracks, re-mixing, etc., and running all through again and again to get all the effects you want, this card will help tremendously by allowing two more full stereo built-in FX simultaneously with your previous two. Not bad!The only reason I rate the value a 3 is because I think Roland's over-priced their after-market stuff for the VS recorders a bit. Still, though, pretty sweet deal for what it can do if you can afford to shake lose the money.
Don't buy this thing. I would like to send this product back - there's no way on earth this thing is $300 worth of effects processing. Alesis makes (or made) a product called the Nanoverb for $50 and sounds better than this silly effects card.
I can't see why anyone with a VS recorder couldn't see the value of the effects this thing offers. It's pricless for the vocal effects alone. The dual compressor limiter works wonders on vocals and really put the vocal track "in the mix" Also has some good reverbs and delays. Very natural sounding. How useful it is really depends on the style of music you are recording.
