I bought a used Roland EXR-5 and want to use it as a Midi controller to record on a computer with Cubase LE. I will need some driver or software so that the computer recognizes the MIDI info, dont I? Only thing I could find online is this, is this right? Anyone know where the link is? Please help. Thanks Michel

Cubase is your software. What you need is a midi interface so that you can record the MIDI data. You didn't mention what sort of audio interface you have. Many include MIDI jacks for recording/playing MIDI. If you don't have one, you need to get one. A simple one is all you need. USB ones work fine.

What did you find online? Is what right? Do you mean you found the information saying you need a driver/software online? If so, like I said, Cubase is your software and you just need some sort of MIDI interface for the computer. That will include the drivers you need to record MIDI.

Link to what? Is there something missing here or have I stayed up way too late and lost my comprehension abilities again?

sorry

Ive got a fireface 400, so there´s no problem with the interface. But Im imagining that the computer wont recognize the MIDI info w/out some sort of Driver or software, which I dont have cause I bought it 2nd hand.
