Reformatted roland vs-2480 workstation...

Reformatted roland vs-2480 workstation and I have no effects

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Roland? What have you tried so far?

Just reformatted yesterday. I have the VS8F-3 disk to reinstall but I thought the board came with onboard effects(VS8F-2). Did I lose the on board as well.

You shouldn't have lost the on-board effects, those are built into flash memory, unless the format erased the card. Give me a few minutes, I believe the VS8F-2 is the first step to restoring the effects. I'll look for a firmware update while you reinstall the disk.

Once you install the disk, click here, and install the system update. Do not try to reinstall the drivers. Tell me if your effects return.
