i'm simply trying to hook up my
qs6.1 to my win98 machine via serial.
maybe i've missed something?
i have set the switch on my qs to "pc"
and set i/o to 38.4.
do any other global qs parameters
need to be set?
i installed the alesis serial driver that
came with my qs last week.
i have one serial port (com1).
synth is "not responding" when i press
the test button. i tried roland's serial
drvier also- no luck. i remember reading
something about com2 being preferred
over com1.. does anyone know about this?
the cable is connected securely, but,
i bought this cable at a computer store;
it's a din8 to db25, and i bought a db25 to
db9 for my computer. are all din8-db25's made the same, or could it be that my cable
can't handle serial communication (it was
supposed to be a mac printer cable, i think)?
i realize that many people have problems
with this and i'm hoping there's something
simple that i've missed..
can someone please give me some
thanks in advance
