Roland xp 50 storage medium problem

My roland xp50 synthesizer stores my midi music files and programs via floppy disc which is so archaic nowadays if you ask me aside from the fact that the wear and tear of the floppy drive is open to great risks. the synth is so highly reliant on this drive. i want to know if there's any way to bypass this drive/ use another drive/medium to store and load midi files and allow this synth to connect directly to pc without the 3rd party accessories such as midi ports, etc.... Please advise me, thanks

Hi.

There is a solution that reads and writes on CF cards. It's call HDM uniflash or something like that.

I didn't try in my xp50, but others says it works.

A bit expensive for my taste, and maybe just for handy hands...

Regards.

MIDI Basics


MIDI is the language used by electronic instruments to tell each other what to play. When you press a key on a musical keyboard this keyboard will send a MIDI message to a computer or a musical instrument connected. The message says something like: start playing this note at this volume. When you stop pressing the key a new message is sent which says: stop playing this note.
MIDI messages can be transmitted using MIDI cables or USB. Old instruments had MIDI ports (round with five connectors inside) so a computer had to have a MIDI interface. Nowadays it's almost all done with usb.
The important thing to remember is that a MIDI message (and a MIDI cable) are just an instruction to play, they don't contain sound. The sound you hear when you press a key comes from the computer or the instrument connected to the keyboard, not from the plastic key you have pressed.
There is a lot more to say, but I would suggest you check wikipedia first and then come back with more specific questions.

LOST MY CASIO WK-110 INSTALLATION CD


I was successful installing a Casio Privia PX-575R USB midi keyboard to Windows 7 Ultimate x64!!!
I tried to use Yamaha, Korg, M-Audio, and some other drivers I don't remember and
they did not work.

I then downloaded the win 7 x64 driver for PC-50 from
http://www.roland.com/products/en/_support/dld.cfm?PRODUCT=PC-50&iRcId=16224976&dsp=1
(but I bet any of them would work) from Roland. All I did was change the hardware ID
in the INF file under

[Roland.NTamd64.6.1]
;; Windows7
%RDID0053DeviceDesc%=RDID0053Install, USB\VID_07CF&PID_6802

The ID is after the comma and the one you see above is from the Casio keyboard i have. The
hardware ID for your keyboard can be found in "device manager". Just choose your
hardware/keyboard and go to "details" and choose "hardware id" from the drop down
menu and put that after the comma. It will start with "USB" since it is a usb
devise. There may be more than one ID but the first one works for me. Then just do
a manual install by right clicking "computer" or "my computer" and click "device
manager" tab. Then find your keyboard (probably a yellow exclamation mark next to
it) and double click it. Then go to the "driver" tab and click "update driver".
Then choose "Browse my Computer for driver software", then "Let me pick from a list
of device drivers on my computer", then "Have Disk..." and browse for the INF file
you just put the hardware ID in and click "open".

You now have a working Casio keyboard for a 64 bit or x64 windows 7 operating system.
You can do the same with Vista x64 or XP x64, just download those drivers and edit the hardware ID the same way.

Thanks

I can not work with 3 sound midi modules, roland mks80, jv2080,ak


I assume roland mks80, roland jv2080,akai s 950 are all being used with a midi interface. You must make sure you download and install the latest driver softwarefor the midi interface. You do not need drivers for the instruments you mention but you must ensure your midi cables connecting the above devices are not damaged
