VS-880, VS-880EX: How to Connect to a Computer

Tags: export,import,pc,record,windows,audio,computer,mac,usb,software,interface,scsi,connect,laptop,pass

The VS-880/VS-880EX does not have computer integration and cannot be connected directly to a computer.

The only option would be to pass audio into computer software in real-time (e.g. Sonar, Pro Tools, Logic, etc)  using an audio interface. To accomplish this, you will connect the left and right MASTER OUTPUTS of the VS-880/VS-880EX into the inputs of an audio interface that is compatible with your computer's current operating system.
