Panel EDITOR for Roland VR700 V-Combo stage organs
07/2020: Announcement: v.1.01.3 is in preparation with bugfixes, adjustments and new features (songbook integration, ex/import of syx-files, reworked coupling of VR-Favorite<>Editor-registrations, integrated help menus …). Release date: autumn 2020.
03/2019: v1.01(2) MINOR BUGFIX VERSION : see DOWNLOAD section
VR700 V-COMBO EDITOR is an application running on MS Windows (XP – 10), OSX and Linux to control the Roland VR700 in studio or on stage (it has no proper sounds – it’s just a controller-editor!). Besides a comfortable user interface, it extends the sound capabilities of the VR (integration of parameters like envelope/filter, access to ‘hidden features’ of the VR700 etc), adds its own registration, integrates/modifies VR hardware controls etc.
VR700 EDITOR @ CTRLR is fully reactive to touch displays (for usage live on stage)
- Direct access to VR700 sounds and parameters instead of painful menu diving in the WDOAT (worst display of all times)
- Hammond style organ with 2 (touch-reactive) drawbar sets and (customizable) presets
- Organ preset switching in Hammond-style (‘black keys’) using low left hand VR-keys
- Additional effects for ensemble sounds (filter, ADR envelope, vibrato, special FX …)
- Free choice of the per-sound MFX-EFFECT + controls of MFX parameters (equal to VR760)
- Extended rhythm control (change of drum kit and drum sound manipulation)
- EDITOR registration (independent from VR favorites) : 2048 registrations, custom naming, saving of additional EFX (like envelope, filter, extended rhythm control, vibrato, etc)
- EDITOR single sound registration : fast ‘workflow’ register to ‘backup’ single ensemble sounds (e.g. your modified pianos, enhanced strings etc)
- Coupling between VR-Favorits and EDITOR-registrations:
- VR-Favorites can be switched by the EDITOR user interface
- EDITOR registrations can be switched with the VR700-Favorite buttons and/or footswitch
- EDITOR registrations and VR-Favorites can be switched with an external program/controller
- Footswitch configurator (for stage use – no menu diving …)
- Synthesizer work mode : organ drawbars and GAIN+REVERB knob act as ADR envelope and filter faders.
- enhanced EQUALIZER
- UPG file editor for reordering the favorites in Favorite backup (“UPG”) files
- Built in sequencer (Win only) and external program launcher
- Compatible to VR700 keyboard firmware v.1.01
- Recommended software: Windows + CTRLR v5.4.29 (no newer!), OSX + CTRLR v53.198, Linux: (?)
