We are going to use this thread to gather information on the various midi interfaces that work well with VS Pro. So I'll start:

I use an Edirol UM-550 5x5 Midi Interface.

I'm using the Edirol UM3-EX interface, with 3 midi in/out loops. This is working well with VS Pro.

Edirol/Roland UM 1 and MIDIMate single port USB MIDI interfaces.

One thing to do with interfaces is to make sure that your drivers are updated. That makes a HUGE difference. Some of my friends have ran into trouble with the midisport 2x2, once the drivers were updated, the issues went away.

M-Audio MIDISport 4x4. No issues, yet, using with VS Pro. I did have problems upgrading my VS OS with it, though. The upgrade was flawless when I switched to my M-Audio Uno, which, interestingly enough, does not work well with VS Pro and my setup. :hs:

I totally agree and that should be part of the troubleshooting one does before dismissing a midi interface. That advice will be in the FAQs as well. wink

Hi All,

New poster here - just joined up 3 weeks ago (right after ordering VS Pro Studio).

Now after 1 1/2 weeks of fighting different configurations with components I had on hand, †:cens: it looks like my Turtle Beach USB MIDI 1x1 is what's finally doing it for me. †:yb: Of course, I'm also now temporarily SOL editing my GT-8 via PC, but I just ordered an Edirol UM3EX that I'll switch into the VS1680/VS Pro setup to gain back the GT-8 functionality. †:tu:

And now that amplitudes are finally downloaded, refreshed and rechecked, I'm off to figure out how to use the rest of this lastest software addition. †:fhs:

And yes, I RTFM'd and RTFFP'd ad nauseum, and expect to need to continue for quite some time throughout this learning curve... †:bc:

Looking forward to sharing some good info with all of you on this forum!

Hello Silvio,

So you got a Turtle Beach 1x1 to work with VS Pro? My friend bought one and had problems with it. I went to his house and had problems with it too. I tried it on 2 other computers and it acted the same way. I wonder if it was the same model as yours? I had him return it and get his money back so he could buy an Edirol, which has worked perfectly since day one.

One thing I did not do was try to update the driver for it. Maybe that was the problem? I dunno.

Also, this board is not like other boards you see on the internet. We don't get frustrated and attack people here with the "RTFM" term. For those who don't know what that means, it means "Read the f-cking manual." I have yet to see one person here say that to someone. We are a polite and respectful group here. I won't tolerate anything less. So if you have questions, feel free to ask away.

Thanks for registering and welcome to the forum! †:thumb:

†:agree:

That's very true and this is definitely a polite and respectful group of people. But the other reason nobody says that is that we all know the VS-Pro manual and the original Roland manuals are not the most clear and concise pieces of documentation ever written... ;-)

I also use an Edirol UM-3EX MIDI 3x3 interface.
Itís small, light weight, and works great! approximately $70 US.

Uh huhÖ and which is why the VS Pro Support forum is so great!
There's a wealth of indispensable material here, for sure.

Hi All,

First of all, Thank you for the warm welcomes!

Yes, I did pick up on the affability of this group over the past 3-some-odd weeks. Most definitely a pleasant change from some other techie boards of this type (I'm pretty sure you folks that I recognize from VS-Planet and Home Recording forums know what I mean... †:bc: )
I'll certainly do my best to contribute to maintaining the atmosphere! †:tu:

Yeah I was also pretty surprised when the Turtle Beach worked. I know that I can only get it to work with the GT-8 (or GR30, VG-88 or V-Bass for that matter) after a fresh cold-boot of my machine - ie. before the USB "data paths" get a chance to get too mucked up with extraneous USB dreck (my own personal technical term for what happens when the machine's been up moving data via USB for a few days... rolleyes ).

But Lo-and behold the TB1x1 made friends with the VS systems right off the bat. I'm hoping to have the same luck with the Edirol UM-3EX.

So now that the machines are all being civil to each other, tomorrow I start some deep cutting and pasting one of my tracks I already have released on iTunes/CD-Baby/etc. - mainly to add some length to the arrangment and record our new drummer for a re-release.

BTW speaking of inadequate documentation - I think I learned more about VS-Pro from viewing Vince's videos that from e runs at the 215-page .pdf doc. Nice job on those Vince.

Thanks again, and I'll keep you posted on the results!

Silvio
