Well, my guitar teacher gave me his old Roland VS-880EX Digital Studio Workstation.

My question is, can i use it as a recording interface, and move it over to my computer to work with, as the controls on it are rather primitive, and i dont particularly feel like learning it. I'll stick with editing software

If I remember right it has a SCSI interface for transferring data but no computers even come with SCSI anymore (old, old technology). It also has S/PDIF out - if your soundcard has a S/PDIF "IN" that may work - it's a really old school piece of hardware that may be a nightmare to configure (and I own lots of older Roland stuff). I'd get a newer interface to work with if it was me. Roland makes QUALITY stuff but brother that's "OLD".
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!
