    Does anyone know if it's possible to export .wav files to a computer via zip disc? Thanks in advance.

    Roland has it's own compression format so if you wanted a WAV file you would probably have to record real time from either the analog or digital outs.

    Oh yeah...

    Been down the Roland 'Wave Export' trail too many times to count... When this app was finished I couldn't believe the amount of saved time I was getting back...

    Glad I could help!

    Disregard my photo. I had an ide cable adapter laying around which is what's in the photo, but I also did it with an external case with a usb connector. Similar to this:

    http://www.google.com/products/catal...ed=0CDYQ8wIwAw - ps-sellers

    I picked up a new one for $4.

    It doesn't have to be sata...that just happened to be the first link that popped up when I searched.

    The program also works with backups of your VS data (assuming that you ARE backing up your projects to CD/DVD)...

    Just put the CD/DVD with your backed up project(s) into your computer's CD/DVD drive and select 'Rip from CDR' in the menu...

    That opens a window where you insure that the drive letter matches your CD/DVD drive and the destination of the Ripped files.

    After the ripper runs, all the tracks show up in the Wave Export program... Works REAL slick!

    Wave files are in the computer and you have a good reason to back-up your projects regularly.
