Hello all. I'm saving my nickels for VirDis. Researching til then.

I recently did a song and recorded some unintentional noise constant through the entire song, on 1 channel. I want to copy the song and edit out the constant noise in my vs.

When I get my hands on VirDis, and I upload the edited track, is VirDis going to recognize the edit?

VirDIS' main role in things is to create virtual hard drive space on your pc. So, in that respect, it's only doing what your internal VS drive does now and everything looks and behaves just as any VS project does.

What you're actually after - to get the individual tracks from your VS project and convert them to .wav file format for the pc - will come from the VSWE utility that comes packaged in the VirDIS software program. This tool will allow you to extract your project's individual VS tracks and save them to your pc in the wav format, which can then be imported into whatever daw or audio file editing software you choose to work with on the computer.

In respect to your question about the edit(s) being recognized, VSWE will create wav files of the individual song tracks, based on channels and virtual track channels. You can think of them as being "stitched" together to represent completely edited tracks - all beginning at zero timeline, with all regions of audio being kept in their proper timeline position and in sync with each channel/track.

Cool. Thanks UTD.

I keep reading of this "warmth" that happens in a frequency range. Would VSWE capture that warmth?

VSWE doesn't "capture" anything other than what's on the track. It's not an effect processor, or anything like that. VirDIS is also not a DAW. If there's warmth to be had, it will be there.

Everything Dan said. This is just the system I've implemented here. The VS does have a warmth signature that approximates analog warmth that manifests it seems as a bit of energy at 300hz or therapists.
You will want to EQ some of that out maybe so things don't build up, get muddy or whatever. ...I've never known if it was intentional, or not. But yes, exactly what you record on the VS will back up to Virdis and then transfer across on your way file, whether you are taking the files to a DAW (I use Reaper) or just making wav files of your final mix, stems or whatever.

I highly recommend the approach you are talking about. It allows you to stay Roland VS focused for the creative work and, later to share or mix in another format.

It goes without saying that you can just use Virdis as your HD instead of the Roland IDE drive...and just keep it all in the Roland but with MUCH MUCH better and faster backup.

My reasons for using Reaper (then, now I'd use it for a host of new reasons...great DAW!) was so that we could share wav files with friends in England who have graciously been contributing to a project we will release in early 2022. Otherwise, just using Virdis as a backup tool would be well worth the purchase price.

I always thought so - wish more people had gone for it early on. We'd probably have a USB version by now, if there was more enthusiastic support. Oh well... pci and pcie versions still work like a charm, if you're willing to use a desktop pc - and if you can scrounge up a pc that has enough pci/pcie card slots to support your needs these days.
