Installation without problem on Mac and Pentium, AMD impossible! Totally incompatible!
I even bought the latest version, nothing works!
Runs without problem otherwise. Polyphony and the quality dpendent used directly from the power of the computer.
The manual indicates that how to install, no description of the sound, no midi map, but the names of the sounds are clear and sounds good sorting, organiss logically (standard GM / GS) . We find immediately what you're looking.
(I use a picture of a brochure for the Roland Sound Canvas for a hardware midi map without making the hand).
On my Mac Performa 180 MHz 136 MB RAM, the VSC is used as a midifile player, but better a more powerful mac.
On my Pentium 4 512 MB RAM Windows98/XP, little problem. He turns to the choice as a standalone application (midifile player, midi or synth controlled by squenceur) as a VSTi / DXi: intgration perfect with squenceur (Magix Music Studio Deluxe 2003, Logic Fun).
It has 902 sounds and 26 drum sets, a quality equivalent to an expander gnraliste (correct, but not exceptional).
Compar Sampletank, it is a little pale figure: less practitioner. But it offers a range of electronic sounds that have made Roland's reputable, that does not Sampletank. The two are complmentaires, I'm running all VSC and Plugsound on my config in my arrangements.
The big advantage of Roland sounds is that they immediately s'intgrent a mix. While that sounds more individually ralistes such as those of Plugsound or Sampletank, are more difficult to operate a complete understanding.
The sounds include Roland Idaux to magnify the sound of the orchestra, even and especially if you want to sound "raliste" (this technique is also used heavily in the band mix Hollywood) .
The big advantage of VSC is the impact spciaux and sounds of synths and rhythm boxes s legendary Roland necessary arrangements. Difficult to do without!
In any case, one has for its 80E, but the incompatibility with AMD should be noted on the box ...

pic&pulse's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
We read the user manual if beginners in Music, you follow the instructions and a roll. You end up with a notch the Sound Canvas. Gripe about the manual, it does not focus enough on treatment options and the sound mix by the Controller noon. The standard GS is fairly well provided that cot and provides a lot of fantasy when it looks it.
Install on an AMD 3000 + general public, I was a little scared by reading the previous ones opinion, but I had no problem. Everything works perfectly and is stable. Big latency even when, whether standalone or wave table read directly. Lightweight VST better. Fully compatible with other software.
After a few months of fruitless search to find one that works SY-XG50, I pulled on this product, trusting to the reputable ROLAND. Big sound bank (we spent hours looking) but I'm kind of the overall quality of the waveforms and their treatment. They know how to do better at Roland. Anyway, in the mix, even when a password and makes many services. Report average quality. For the choice, there's no crowd This category of products then it is quickly seen.
Tip: You lean on the GS and XG standards, their paramtres standardiss allow a great expressiveness when triturated.
