My VF-08 recorder has an S/PDIF signal out....I use it to master to my CDR, which (obviously) has an S/PDIF in. Lately, though, the CDR deck has been flaky, and I haven't gotten around to taking it into a shop to get the laser aligned or whatever it needs.

The sound card on my computer has an s/pdif in jack, so I assume I could somehow use that. What kind of program would you use to capture the s/pdif signal?

Any audio recording software. Freebies include Audacity, Kristal, and Computer Muzys. Reaper is shareware - $40 - and worth many times that.

Be careful. Many computer sound cards will resample the signal.

I've had a good experience with the M-Audio Delta 66. There's spdif in and out on the sound card itself and a breakout box for four analog (line level) channels. 24/96. It's been pretty much bulletproof and has its own software interface, will tell you if you have a good signal, meters in and out and all that. It's cheeep these days.

I recently installed an Echo Mia MIDI sound card into my computer. I needed the MIDI capability. It also has S/PDIF ins & outs, but I haven't gotten my VF-08 to talk to it yet.
