Well, if you hadn't noticed, the V-Synth and the VP-9000 are two very different pieces of gear. For that matter, the V-Synth GT and the original model are also very different with the GT's addition of AP synthesis and vocal processing integrated throughout the engine.
Have you bothered reading any of the support documents?
this is what you need- http://www.rolandus.com/products/produc ... oductId=85
it is your only option for the VP-9000. Good luck, Roland doesn't offer it any longer, which I found out after purchasing my NOS VP-9000 years ago under the assumption that the software was included. A Roland rep sent me the VP-9000 training VHS free of charge as consolation
V-Producer runs on OS8.6 or later and does not support OSX and on the Windows side it works with Windows 98/ME
V-Producer 2.1 is for the VariOS and does not support the VP-9000 (because once again, two very different products)
(all of this info is easily accessible on the first page of a Google search)
The VP-9000 is a great piece of gear but it flopped on the market. Continued support would be nice, but it was discontinued and I can't fault Roland for no longer supporting it.
