TL;DR: after a reddit user contacted me about difficulties in emulating the game in question, I decided to test it and I had practically no problem.

short test: I played¹ the first round only²³;
¹ both games:
    Vib-Ribbon (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) [hash checked:]
    Vib-Ribbon (Japan) [hash checked:]
    hash checked using Nirsoft HashMyFiles (freeware)
² menus: english, game, play w/ the vib-ribbon disc, bronze (easy);
³ the relative same menus in japanese;
RetroArch Beetle PSX....: ok!, good audio;
BizHawk + Beetle PSX....: ok!, good audio;
Mednafen................: ok!, good audio;
ePSXe Native Plugins....: ok!, good audio;
XEBRA + Single File IMG*: ok!, good audio;
XEBRA + REDUMP Multi-BIN: BAD: it asks for "insert vib-ribbon disk";
PCSXR-PGXP............**: BAD: bad audio, no audio or crash;
[emulators versions]
