    I have a 25 year old Roland S10 Sampling keyboard that I wanted to download sampling patches to. With this cable and MIDI-OX I was able to accomplish this task. The conventional understanding with MIDI plugs is that you plug IN to OUT and OUT to IN. Well Roland marked the cables with CONNECT TO IN and CONNECT TO OUT which is done to mitigate this counter intuitive issue of IN to OUT and OUT to IN. All I initial saw in the dim light of my studio was the IN and OUT label on the plug. Once I realized that I had connect the cable incorrectly and fixed that everything worked as expected.

    Numerous unsuccessful attempts to install on Windows 8.1 despite getting updated driver from Roland website. Installed on a Windows 7 computer to make sure cable was working. Finally in searching internet, found yet another update that was in a part of the support section I couldn't access directly when I went to Roland help section for Windows.

          A great USB to MIDI converter. Compact and affordable. I use it to connect the MIDI-out rack of my Reason 7 software on my PC to my Strand lighting console MIDI-in. An affordable way to synchronize lighting control to your Reason tracks!

          Comments about Roland UM-ONE MK2 USB MIDI Interface:

          Plug and play for Windows 8 and 10. Would not function on current iOS 10.whatever.
          Was planning on using with my Mac but it runs super smooth on the pc. There is a element of user error so maybe even with my extensive knowledge of iOS I simply didn't do the setup correctly. Regardless I purchased it for ease of use and for Mac it wasn't cutting it

                  Very easy directions and easy to install. I have Windows 10. My OS found it and installed the correct driver. My DAW and very old keyboard recognized the device and the two work together like they are supposed to. This was a very good buy. I recommend this budget friendly alternative.

                      Works well with Windows, no problems, and the driver installation was fairly easy. Downloaded drivers from Roland web site because my DVD drive is broken.

                      Has anybody on here been able to get this working with Linux? It would be nice to take an old computer that somebody is throwing away, load Debian Linux (very fast), ZynAddSubFX, and have a dedicated synthesizer.

                                I needed a MIDI interface for my new computer, and the Roland fit the bill perfectly. Taking MIDI through the USB port is very convenient and helps me keep cords out of the way when I don't need them. So far as quality is concerned, Roland never disappoints me.

                                      I was hoping this midi/usb converter would solve my latency problems and allow me to play virtual keyboard in live performance, but this device was created for Windows XP devices, before VST instruments were in common usage, and the latency is too great to be usable for live performance

                                      Works 100% with Win7/64 and the ES-8

                                      Comments about Roland UM-ONE MK2 USB MIDI Interface:

                                      Bought because none of the other MIDI interfaces I had would talk successfully with the Boss ES-8's new editor. Those same interfaces talk flawlessly with other Boss/Roland products, and could update the firmware on the ES-8, but...would *not* work with the editor.

                                      It appears for Windows 7 at least, this is the ONLY game in town to reliably make the ES-8 editor work.

                                      And programming the ES-8 without the editor is doable, but...it's a pain.

                                        I purchased a cheap version of this a while ago and could never get it to work. This unit worked right out of the box!

                                          Purchased this to use with my Strymon pedals along with the Strymon Nixie software and it works like a charm.
