If you think you dont have time for the learning curve then you need to stay with whats working for you. You WILL have a a very large curve with the PC route, you have to accept that or not bother. I have a VS2480CD here btw and also do computer as well.
Problem with the 2480 is its discontinued.
Reaper would be a great place to start as its only $50 for the app. It will give you way more power than you ever dreamed of with your 1880. You can use any VS as a control surface with Reaper but you have to program it which again is a learning curve
If you dont have to sell the 1880 then keep it. Get a PC and an I/O box and Reaper and get started. that way you STILL have your 1880 to be productive while you transition to the PC
You need to go to Cockos Incorporated | News
and post any questions you have about using your Roland with Reaper
Ultimately it comes down to how YOU like to work. the VS2480 is a fine box but has its limits just as anything else
