So, sweet aficionados of the good old V-Combo 700,

if you think it might be time to kick your outdated VR700 and buy some new cool stuff - think twice ...

because - here's what you can do with the VR700 EDITOR what you weren't able to do with the VR700 before:

* access the VR700 sounds and parameters in an easy way instead of cruel menu diving and number counting in the WDOAT (worst display of all times)
* enjoy the Hammond style organ with 2 drawbar sets and (customizable) presets
* use the lower keys of the VR700 to switch the organ presets like the big Hammonds
* add additional effects to ensemble sounds like filter, ADR envelope, virbrato, special FX etc
* freely assign a (normally hard wired) MFX=EFFECT out of 256 available to any ensemble sound and change multiple MFX parameters (like Roland VR760)
* change the rhythm drum kit and customize the drum sound
* use the proprietary EDITOR registration instead of the VR-Favorites with 2048 registrations, custom naming, saving of additional EFX
(envelope, filter, extended rhythm controls, vibrato settings, foot switch, etc)
* save your customized sounds (e.g. your modified pianos, enhanced strings etc) to the EDITOR single sound register
* switch the VR-Favorites from the EDITOR
* vice versa switch the EDITOR registrations from the VR700 using the favorite-buttons and/or the control foot pedal (limited to reg. 1-64)
* switch the 2048 EDITOR registrations by external software or hardware controller
* use the quick access footswitch configurator for live play
* use the synthesizer work mode to customize ensemble sounds using the drawbars and GAIN+REVERB knobs as 'faders' for filters and envelope
* use the enhanced EQUALIZER
* reorder the favorites in your Favorite backup ("UPG") files with the 'UPG EDITOR'
* play with the builtin sequencer (Windows only) and add programs to the external program launcher

Project website:

you can download the
- EDITOR panel plugin for CTRLR-platform
- a standlone EDITOR EXE for MS Windows
- an interactive document (open zip-file) for your web browser

those who installed the BETA version: you MUST delete the old registration file (V-Combo700.vreg) in your 'Documents'/CTRLR folder (see interactive doc for details)

Some views of the EDITOR (there is more...)

The main panels:

the organ with 2 drawbarset and presets:

the 'synthesizer': 256 'free' MFX + parameters, filters and envelopes:
