« on: March 20, 2017, 07:50:34 PM »
Hello.
A question from a swede here.
Having problem with the vg editor,it works sometimes
thats why its buggin me.Can use the editor with out problem sometimes ,but suddenly
it just stops working and the vg cant connect to the editor.
Im running w10 and amd cpu.
So what am i asking for,well is there any one else having this problem
or am i alone in this "hell of not being able to tweak my sounds on my computer sometimes".
If the problem where consist i would not bother but
when its just occas...occasiona..sometimes its not
fun.
All latest drivers installed have not checked version of firmware installed,yet.
Regards Z

Make sure you are using a USB 2 port, and not USB 3.

The VG-99 editor was made way back in the days of Windows Xp.
I suggest using a Windows 7 installation/computer
Free "GR-55 FloorBoard" editor software from http://sourceforge.net/projects/grfloorboard/

FWIW, I went on eBay and spent about $140 on an old refurbished Lenovo corporate fleet laptop running Windows 7. I got it for the sole purpose of running the VG-99 editor, and practicing the guitar/VG-99 along with audio on the laptop (all of which comes out of the VG-99's headphone jack when connected). Works perfectly.
