JV1080 , Windows 7 and USB MIDI adaptor

Hi, I just brought a USB/MIDI adoptor to hook up with my JV1080,(Similar to this one)



I connected both in / out to the jv and the usb to my Toshiba S... I do hear the "pop" when I plug the usb to the computer, the device seems to not be recognized.. any solution? USB "midi' led flashes but not the in/out which I conclude make it not recognizeable to the computer..
Thanks

Might seem a silly qusetion, but are you using a sequencer or DAW on your pc?

1) Exactly what midi interface did you buy? What is the serial number / model?
2) Maybe it requires it's own driver in Win7. Is 32 bit or 64 bit windows?

When I was in the market for a MIDI adapter, I did a bit of research. There were a lot of reported problems with the adapters like that which were purchased on Ebay. I went with the Roland UM-One and had no problems connecting my JV-1080 or my JX-8P using Win7 64-bit.

OK, can you check in device manager what error it is on the device? It should need no driver.

Even better - call Addison support.

Like I said ealier, I do hear the "pop" sound when I plug in the usb, the driver installs the pilot and then, nothing

all these 10$ class compliant usb adapter things are god awful

even if you get it to work jitter and latency will be all over the place

spend 50$ and get a proper midi interface , mentioned roland um1 is perfect

Most online stores carry them. I didn't see much variation on price, so it probably doesn't matter.

I've done this, small change now.. I enabled a device on the sound section, the midi out it flashing but on my jv1080 it is written midi communication error

so the ball is on my jv now...

You purchased the UM-One? What do you mean by "enabled a device on the sound section?

Did you buy a decent interface? 100% of the issues that I have helped troubleshoot on the official Roland website were due to cheap USB adapters. SysEx is especially prone to not working.

It's more likely than the JV being faulty (not impossible of course, just much more likely).

Not yet, I gave a last shot to mine and somehow had a little progesss

My computer is in french, here's the device I enabled;




So Basically what I did when I went to midi-ox I defined both input and ouput on the usb device... I plugged the usb/midi cable and I had a brief message on the jv1080 saying "midi communication error " but on the little remote, the MIDI out led was flashing so somehow It is indeed working but something is wrong..

Sorry for the late response, this thread fell off the radar. What you enabled in sound properties should be your interface. When you install the UM-ONE, it appears in Devices and Printers as UM-ONE. It should also appear that way in your DAW as a MIDI device.
