And as I asked, anything need to be done in the Mac's Audio MIDI Setup/MIDI Studio? Also, any particular settings need to be tweaked in the VG-99 itself to get it to connect - I'm still learning about all the available settings in there.

mmmhh that's twice as much embarrassing... sorry.
First of all I forgot to answer your question... : No I did not do anything with AUDIO/MIDI Setup..
because (and that's even more embarrassing) I do not even know how to connect the objects in it.  ::)
VG99 usually has (SYSTEM Button/MIDI) MIDI ch set to 7 and Device ID = 1. OMNI MODE = OFF. I think I never changed it since day one expect a couple of times recently (changed Device ID to 1 - it has been 17) in any case, in Gumtown's editor you dial MIDI TX Channel at the beginning.

No worry - about being sorry.

What do you mean by "...dial MIDI TX Channel at the beginning"? You dial "MIDI TX Channel" where? And speaking of which, is there a place where you have to dial the UM-ONE MKII in?  h

Currently working to do a revised Mac OS version, as I see the frustrating popup midi connection dialog won't go away.

Have now updated the Mac OS version and it is working well, but..
having issues getting the settings/preferences file to read, so the editor is set to an auto scaled size of about 80% screen size and midi device default is "UM-ONE".

To install the UM-ONE I had to
a) download and install the Roland UM-One MK2 driver (not the old obsolete UM-1 driver).
b) plug in the UM-One Mk2 in to the iMac USB port, the UM-One USB led did not immediately light up in use (UM-One switch must be in COMP position).
I went into the Applications/Utilities/Audio-Midi settings menu, pulled up the midi settings popup and clicked on the UM-One midi device box.
Then the USB led lit up on the device.
c) connect the UM-One 5 pin midi plugs to the VG-99 midi ports.
d) download and install the latest VG-99Floorboard editor from
https://sourceforge.net/projects/sy1000floorboard/files/VG99FloorBoard/
Depending on which version of Mac OS you are running, later versions require added permissions to run the installer, go into Mac Security/Privacy settings and allow the installer package to run.
e) once installed, go into Applications and run VG-99Floorboard, if using a UM-ONE Mkii it should come to life with the connected button lit and the patch names populated in the left side patch tree, and the current VG-99 patch loaded in.

The settings and patches should be found in (top level Computer/USERS folder) ../Shared/VG-99FloorBoard

When VGFlooreditor starts asks for MIDI TX Channel. If your MIDI Channel is 7 you should match it in the pop up 'dialing' a 7. Hope this helps :-)
