    To get the most out of your VS-2480, add a Song Vault (I archive
    projects to it rather than make CD backups, which can be
    time-consuming), Roland's MB-24 Meter Bridge and an external VGA
    monitor. Also invest in a mouse and keyboard — the wireless varieties
    are especially useful. Many VS-2480 functions can be performed using
    either the unit's control surface or mouse/keyboard equivalents. Most
    of my tips include mouse/keyboard commands, but you should learn
    several ways to perform your most common operations.


    You might think this goes without saying, but
    at one time or another, everyone has lost at least one “perfect take”
    because they forgot DAW recording's Golden Rule. There are three
    different ways to save your work on the VS-2480. Using the mouse, click
    Project Menu, click Store and then click Yes. Using the keyboard, press
    F9 (Project Menu), arrow down to Store, press Enter and then press
    Enter again to confirm. From the VS-2480 console: Press and hold Shift,
    press Store (the left transport button) and then press Enter to

    If you're working with a band that's recording
    many songs during a session using the same track setup, configure
    patchbay routings and name tracks, set up the first song, and before
    recording store it! Then open it again and copy the project. Make as
    many copies as you need, but remember to go back and change the project
    names; otherwise, all will come up with the same name until you do so.
    Using the mouse, click Project Menu, click Project List, mark the
    project you want to copy, click to page 2, click F1 Copy and then click
    F5 OK. If you want to save to a different drive, then choose that with
    F4 Sel Drv before selecting F5 OK. If you had changed settings that you
    would like to keep in this project “template,” then you can easily
    transfer those settings to a new project (without audio tracks) if you
    turn on the “Copy Utility Prm” settings when creating a new project
    from the File menu. The settings from the previous project will be
    imported automatically.


    Sometimes, a project has many songs, and while
    the band's setup remains the same, not all tracking will be the same.
    Or perhaps the project will not all be done on the same day. In such
    cases, you should save a Routing Template. This is also a helpful
    feature when using the VS-2480 for live sound applications. Using the
    mouse, click EZ Routing Menu, click Routing View and make all your
    routing settings; click Routing View again and then click Save. Then
    choose a User Template: Click F1 Name to name your setting and then
    click OK. To recover a setting, use Routing View and Load.


    The VS-2480 does have an internal metronome
    with a tempo map feature, but there are times that you may need an
    actual click track. First, make your metronome and tempo map settings.
    Then click Utility Menu; click Gen/Osc, click SW to On, click Source to
    Metro and click F6 Exit. Click Routing View in the Track Assign section
    to make the connection from Gen to the track you want to record to and
    then simply arm the track for recording.


    Like many other digital toys, pressing some
    odd combination of keys can yield useful results. For example,
    determining your VS-2480's software version (the most current version
    is 2.504) is easy: Power the unit down. Then press and hold Track 1's
    Channel Edit and Track Select buttons while powering the unit up. The
    LCD will show its software version. Press Enter to complete startup of
    the unit. Another slick trick: Pressing the Shift and Utility buttons
    at the same time will shift the mouse functioning from the LCD readout
    to the VGA screen. The function will change each time you do this.


    The VS-2480's pan knobs normally change pan
    values in increments of 10. To make adjustments in single-digit
    increments, simply hold the Shift button down while using the pan knob.
    Speaking of pans, you can return any track or input fader to the
    default 0 dB and center panning by just pressing Clear and Ch Edit for
    any fader you want to restore.


    Keyboard transport is possible on the VS-2480, yet there is no simple
    way to return to zero. However, you can get around this by using your
    locate points. First set a locate for zero and for any other spots in
    the project you'll want to access. Then, using the keyboard, press F12
    (Utility Menu), arrow down to Locator, press Enter, use the arrows to
    get to the desired Locate point and press F4 Go To.

Not outputting to all speakers from CD, but does from DVD


With the indulgence of the others...
If I understand your problem right:
1. CD works only in Speaker A (but not in Speaker B);
2. DVD works on either or both A/B;
3. CD will work if plug into to VCR input but selector must be of another source (not VCR).

A couple of suggestions:
a. pls try doing again the reset as ginko has suggested but make it a bit longer, i.e. unplug it from the mains for a couple of hours;
b. since you have remove most of the wiring, why dont you try switch A & B. make the family room speakers the B while the speaker selector the A;
c. hook the CD (only) using the RCA cables (red/white) nothing else;
d. play any CD music and go through the paces of selecting source, speakers, surround/hall/theater/etc as troylove11 has suggested.

This would be now a simple setup, 1 source (CD) to 1 output/speaker (the family room) via the Denon. Try different settings. If the CD plays normally then, without changing any setting nor powering it off (but with volume level all the way down), remove the family room speaker wiring and replace it with the wires to/from the speaker selector.

the idea is to determine which is the real issue, the Sony, the Denon settings/hardware or the speaker selector.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I'm looking for a laptop with an optical port to go from my Roland workstation keyboard direct to my computer to download the music from workstation.

I have a great HP Pavillion DV series that has the optical on it. I have had it several years with hardly any problems at all.

Denon AVR-2105

If the Cd is wired digitally, it will only play through the main zone, because the Denon cannot convert down to RCA to cater for the zone 2. If you plug RCAs from Cd to Denon, Main zone will STILL play from digital, and RCA connection will allow zone 2 to play Cd from RCA input....same with dvd, Satellite Blah blah... no stress, any nasty RCA will do if you want to try before you splash out on really costly cables...perhaps you can help me...want to run AVR 2105 with 2 speakers in zone 2, manual says cant do it - only ably to surround back or biamp...dont want either, dont have stereo yet to try it out...did you have any trouble with that?

Press the "UTILITY" button under the Menu heading above the 10 digit key-pad. Under "System Parameter" -Param3, check that PS2 Mouse is set to "ON" and (of course) that the connector is firmly inserted into the mouse connector socket.

No audio input from video modes

First of all, there is no audio information on the video lines. These are typically used together with the audio lines to complete the interface between the source(TV, DVD,VCR,etc) and your receiver...accordianman
