I have just assembled a home studio. Here's a brief rundown of the gear so far:
Roland VS2480DVD DAW, Roland Fantom X8 Workstation, Yamaha DT Explorer digital drums, Fender Telecaster, Ovation Acoustic, Yamaha bass, Boss DB-3 drum module, Audio Technica vocal mic, Roland monitors.
I like to record the basic tracks on the VS2480, but I would prefer to mix and master using the VS together with a PC.
What I would like to know is can I use the PC (utilising plug-ins etc) to add effects (send/receive), and master tracks (in Wavelab)?
Do I use usb to communicate between the VS and the PC?
Is having a mix of the VS and a PC unusual or commonplace? Or am I just wanting the best of both worlds?
Any tips would be appreciated.
