My recording studio is stuck on the project load screen


Your VS-2000 is showing symptoms of fragmentation--resulting in the unit freezing or failing to completely load. The only possible solution is formatting the hard drive. Formatting erases all data on the drive.

Note: If you have any files that you need to keep, you may contact our Roland Customer Support department (323-890-3740) to arrange a "Data Recovery" service. Our service technicians can attempt to recover any data that is in your hard drive. Customer Support is available M-F 8:30am-5:00pm Pacific time.

CAUTION!!! Formatting the hard drive erases ALL recordings and data on the drive. This includes any installed plug-ins as well. Be sure to back up all of your project data (recordings) and plug-ins to CD/DVD(s) before formatting the drive.

Unlocking the System:
1. With the VS-2000 powered off, press and hold the TRACK/STATUS button for track 4 and the FX 2 button.

2. With both buttons pressed, turn on the VS-2000's power. Continue holding the two buttons until the display has loaded completely. This can take several minutes.

3. Once the system has loaded completely, release the buttons.

Formatting the Hard Drive:
Note: The format steps below pertain to using the VS-2400's on-board LCD screen. If you're using an external VGA (video monitor), press and hold HOME and press F6 to switch to the on-board LCD.

1. Press SHIFT AND F1/PROJECT.

2. Use the CURSOR buttons to Select "IDE:0".

3. Press PAGE until "FmtDrv" is displayed above F2.

4. Press F2.

5. CURSOR to "Physical Format".

6. Turn the TIME/VALUE dial until "ON" is selected.

7. CURSOR to "Surface Scan".

8. Turn the TIME/VALUE dial until "On" is selected.

9. Press F5 (OK).

10. Press ENTER/YES twice.

Roland VS 2480 v2 - working on album and received error message "load project please wait" since last night. have tried turning machine off and on and unplugging it. still same message.


Hi, have you tried to do a factory reset?

Hold SHIFT and press F4 (Utility). Press PAGE to get to page 3. Press F6 (PrmIni). Press F5. Press ENTER/YES.

If the factory reset does not fix the problem i think you have to format the disk because it has a fragmented disk .......

It keeps saying opertion failed when i try to load a project, I changed harddrives and it does the same thing


Try checking the disk drive and CD drive connectors on the main circuit board, see if there are any bent, dirty or desoldered pins.

That's one thing you can do, and it may either help or not, but many machines that use disk/CD/floppy drives show an error message if there is a connection problem so i guess it's at least worth checking it.

Recording multiple tracks at the same time.


Yes you certainly can record the 8 inputs onto 8 tracks simultaneously. You will need to make sure you are assigning each input to each track individually by first pressing the input button for an input and then pressing the select button for a track. Do this for each input/track and then make sure all of the 8 tracks you want to record to are armed for recording (the red rec buttons above each should be lit) before pressing record and play together.

You might want to insure that no tracks are linked (you can see this by pressing an input and observing which tracks have their 'select' button flashing). If 2 adjacent ones are flashing for the same input simply unassign one of them by pressing the 'select' button above that track. Then you'll be free to assign the next input to that track as above.

Best of luck.

You've got two inputs on the DP-02 so you can record two sources at once.

Depending on how you want the electric guitar recorded (mic the amp, or direct line in) you can in the first case plug your guitar mic into one of the mic inputs on DP02 and plug your vocal mic into the other mic input. You also have the option of plugging the guitar directly into the DP02 (using the hi-z input - I believe it is labelled 'guitar' or something on the DP02. I any event I believe it's the one on the left). This way you only need one mic for use recording the vocal part.

To avoid any 'bleed' between channels you can use the headphones while recording this way and you'll avoid having the unamplified guitar sound coming through over the vocal mic.

Once you have the mics or guitar and mic plugged into two inputs, you need to assign the inputs to a channel (track) to record on. You do this by pressing the select button for the input and then pressing the select button for the track where you want to record the input. Do this for both inputs so that they are recording on different tracks. Then arm the tracks for recording by pressing the record button for each track and the lighted buttons will flash above each armed track. Then just press play and record and you'll be recording. You can go back and redo it as many times as you like and record over what is there, or preserve a take and assign a new track (or tracks) for another take. You've got 8 to play with.

Hope this helps.

Shelly, I have a 2480 but it must be very similar. Import the drum track as a wav file into two of your tracks within the same project. You must make sure the file is a WAV file and nothing else.

Hope it works, on the 2400, I am sure it must since it is a must have.
