The original recording files were saved with the Roland proprietary compression scheme - so they are not recognized by any commercial app.

You can't access the .wav files directly.

You can convert roland proprietary format to standard wav file using VSWE - this program is windows only though, no mac. Will work on a mac running windows as a virtual machine.

Or convert on a windows machine first - any program on mac can then use standard wav files.
