VG-8 - VG-8_VLibrary App to load / save VG-8 patches?
« on: October 05, 2011, 05:26:37 PM »

Hi there,

Some time ago my PC died.  I had a lot of data backed up, but something that fell through the cracks was my librarian & saved patches for my VG-8.  I believe I used V-Library or V-Librarian - it was freeware that used to be on the vg-8.com site.  My hardware breakdown was also after vg-8.com went down - two unfortunate events in series.

Does anyone know where I can download that again and/or the patches that were there?  I frequently swapped patches, and cannot believe that it made it past my backup procedures.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
James

Thanks everyone for your help.  I really appreciate it.

I've been living with the same patches since my hardware failure, which has been ok for a while - and finally have gotten around to having time to start asking for help.

Thanks again!

There never was a VG-8 Editor  - Only old 1997 versions of Emagic SoundDiver , or MIDI Quest used to have a basic editor, but both were very buggy.

We program the VG-8 on the genuine Roland VG-8 LCD screen and data wheel , using our ears and lots of "Q-Dial" spinning.

Also  - click here to go back in a time machine

Locate and download old VG-8,VG-88 Patches from Aure's  old www.VG-8.com here:
Click the link below, wait 30 seconds. Then browse for your patch and right click to save.

Doesn't the VG-8 and 88 use essentially the same operating system and share much of the same specs?

Who programed the Veditor, and should it be really that hard to do a bit of tweaking to get it to work with the VG-8 and VG-8ex?

Incorrect - VG-8 vs VG-88  are different generation products, no cross-compatibility, no patch compatibility.

VG-88 V-EDITOR 0.51  - Librarian / Editor for the Roland VG-88
The original Developer (Ralph Benchetrit in France)  ceased all work on this VG-88 V2 Only Editor back in 2003.

Dear Elantric,
does VG-8 Virtual Library works with VG-8 EX?
Actually I'm trying to use it with Win 7 64, but if i try to make Audition, nothing happen,
the patch remain the same, without previews the sound.
Can you help me?
Thank you a lot.

Yes

 VG-8 VLibrary patch librarian is here:
http://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=19

It will NOT run on Win7 64 operating system, or anything newer

Most folks run it with an old WinXP or Win98 machine

You will never hear any "audition" patch sounds with the software alone, you must load the desired patch into a genuine Roland VG-8 or Roland VG-8 with S1 upgrade, or Roland VG-8EX hardware  - each connected to the PC via 5 pin MIDI I/O   

I use Roland UM-ONE MKII (below) and an old WinXP notebook to run VG-8 VLibrary app.

I got you software, i made my correct midi connection,
i read the sys ex in the Librarian but if i try to send a patch to VG8ex nothing happen.
Of course i use Audition feature to send patch to VG and try to listen and use it.
With no success.
Can you have some ideas?
