  1. Sorry for the newbie question, butI am trying to use CTRLR for the first for my VR-09. I have a MAC, and the general CTRLR instructions say that I need to download the .APP file for the MAC. Where can I find the .APP file? I can’t find it in the Downloads section of the website.

  2. Hi higgy
    I just created an account here to thank you for this nice job.
    What you have done is really appreciated.
    It opened new beautiful doors to all Roland VR owners. I’ve benefited a lot from all your released versions.
    You did and still do a great job, man!
    I’m sure that all Roland VR community, including me, are appreciating your work.
    Thank you.
    You are proud of you. and you should be proud of yourself.

  3. Keep up the good work. Every new iteration of this panel (and the standalone) just gets better and better! Looking forward to the 1.12(7) update, the new features sound awesome.

  4. Hi. Thank you for your work and efforts.
    I’m starting to really enjoy my VR09 as I use it with your Panel Editor.
    Wish we shall be able to have current parameters displayed when loading a synth sound, with slider and pots in their actual position (instead to reach the value to edit it): do you think is it feasible?
