the only way data will be different on what were shown as "stereo" tracks in the VS is if the data is actually different - I know I often ended up with 2 different tracks in place of a stereo channel........ if that's not it, then maybe get a hold of Bill Casey and ask him to take a look at a session, or at least a stereo track before conversion. That should be easy for him to do over the cloud, if he's willing to look at it.

if i could ask, do you get any stereo trks doing the transfer?
i have to look for those and thier always different example:
23-24 /16 it could become 23/16 24/15 and other tracks i didnt record on show up with big chunks strewn around. any help would be appreciated

It's been awhile since I did any transfers, but I remember for sure that you will always get a left track and a right track when converting something like 23-24/16. So if it's something like a 2-track/stereo mixdown pair, then after the conversion these two tracks need to be imported into a daw or other editing program that is capable of playing them together. This playback then needs to be rendered to a single stereo wav, mp3, etc.

The Roland doesn't actually record stereo tracks (although it has stereo channels), so I assume this is the reason you never get stereo transfers.

If you are getting stray chunks of audio in places where they should not appear, or blank spaces in transfers that shouldn't be there, there's only a couple of things I can think of that might cause it -

1- corruption in the VS session - even if you don't experience it when played on the Roland - one way to investigate this possible issue is to run Drive Check on the hard drive partition the scrambled session TAKES came from. Always make a back up of the drive, partition and/or session, if possible, before running drive check in case it should find corruption and repair it - losing actual audio data in the process. Much of the times I've run drive check, it only found inner data and not audio data. But a couple of times I did lose a bit of audio - one time causing me to have to re-record an instrument and one time deleting a bit of audio on an unused solo take on a virtual track.

2- Another way transfers/conversions can become scrambled is if you don't set up your destination folder and conversion folders properly. When using the VSWE (VS Wave Export) tool (inside of VirDIS, or standalone), it can be possible to accidently overwrite files from different session conversions that have the same names. This is more true of CD backup file rips than the take-to-wav file conversion process...... but it can happen.

I can't recall VirDIS copies of sessions ever becoming scrambled (those .hdd files it creates to store the VS sessions). If this is the case, you should definitely consult with Bill Casey to get the bug sussed out and fixed.

One other possible thing I can think of that might mess with your conversions to wav file from VSWE, is if you monkey around with the Export options, other than to simply keep the defaults - that is, "include project names in the name" tick boxed should be checked, the export to path should be carefully chosen (VSWE WILL offer to create a new destination folder, however, which is helpful - also don't use the "Pack" button and it's probably wise to use the default settings for the "Export start/stop" settings.

I hope this is helpful. I can't think of anything else.

Which folder did you mess with and what resulted from this action? Did you do this as a result of suggestions given, or do you think that your action caused the problem? It's impossible to understand the context of your statement, without some clarification. Could you maybe clarify this?

Also, which software do you want to uninstall?
What are you hoping to gain by uninstalling some software?
It's impossible to even guess as to the wisdom of such an action without much more clarification. Maybe give us a much more detailed line of reasoning to go with your question and then maybe we can recommend an action.

Guys: After a cursory reading of these posts I _believe_ they may be referring to a recent VS Wave Export phenomenon that we posted about earlier under 'Possible VS Wave Export problem'. As of this writing there isn't any resolution but A) This is NOT and HDD corruption issue and B) I believe simply retrying the drag of an HDD into the VSWE window can give good results - this is based on a customer report.
