VB - PMA5 serial

Hi !

I would like to directly access the PMA-5 by talking
via the serial port, but I can't figure out how
to do that . Is there a way, or should I use the MIDI stuff ?

I am afraid you won't be able to directly "talk" to the
PMA-5 via its serial port. In fact, this serial port
needs the proper Roland driver (found on www.rolandcorp.com).

But then you can just send standard MIDI orders, if your
PMA-5 is switched to work on its serial port, it will work.
You can use MCI commands to send SysEx, in order to configure
the PMA-5, or load or save songs/patterns.
