EDITOR features:

  • Organ preset switching in Hammond-style with the lower VR-keys
  • Additional effects for ensemble sounds (filter, ADR envelope, virbrato, special FX …)

  • proprietary EDITOR registration (independent from VR favorites) : 2048 registrations, custom registration naming, saving of additional EFX (like envelope, filter, extended rhythm controls, vibrato settings etc)
  • proprietary EDITOR single sound registration : fast ‘workflow’ register to ‘backup’ single ensemble sounds (e.g. your modified pianos, enhanced strings etc)
  • Switching of the VR-Favorites with the EDITOR
  • Switching of the EDITOR registrations with the Favorite buttons and/or footswitch of the VR700
  • Switch the EDITOR registrations from an external program/controller
  • Quick access footswitch configurator for live play

  • enhanced EQUALIZER
  • UPG file editor for reordering the favorites in a Favorite backup (“UPG”) files

  • Compatible to Roland keyboard firmware v.1.01
