In order for the RSEDIT program to work correctly, Midi communication between RS-5/9 and your computer has to be present. RSEDIT supports all Midi interfaces currently available. If you have a soundcard you can use the Midi cable to connect your keyboard to your computer. If you do not have a Midi cable you can check your local music store. Most music stores sell standard Midi cables that connect 15 pin joystick connectors to two 5 pin DIN connectors (Midi In and Midi Out). Midi In and Midi Out cable connectors plug into the DIN connectors on the back of the RS keyboard. For more information about Midi Setup please check the RS Owner's Manual on page 120 and 127. PC Midi Interface also requires Midi drivers configured in your Windows system setup. In most cases, Midi drivers for the sound card is installed during your sound card installation.
It is common to have more than one Midi interface on the computer. The Midi Setup window allows you to select Midi ports in which your RS keyboard is physically connected.
1. MIDI SETUP dialogue window is available from the main RS Edit window.
2. Select the Midi In and Midi Out ports in which your RS keyboard is connected.
3. Press the 'ENABLE' button. If the Midi connection is O.K., then the RS software version and devise number will appear on top of the window.
4. RSEDIT provides an option of routing notes and other midi control messages via the computer back to your keyboard. If you select this option, you should turn LOCAL settings to OFF (Owner's Manual, page 124).
5. With the 'THRU' option disabled, the plain channel will be changed into the current editor's Midi channel.
