Did you try going into device manager, drill down to the A-800Pro, right click that and then install the driver from there?
Thanks for the tip! I just did now. Apparently version 1.0.3 for Windows 10 had already been downloaded and installed. That's a relief.7 hours ago, rsinger said:
Go to the link I provided above and download the win10 driver file. It explains possible problems and how to correct them.
I downloaded the file, but when I opened it all the links opened new tabs that said, "File not found". I guess they're broken?
New question: When I go to devices in Cakewalk, A-PRO 1, A-PRO 2, and A-PRO MIDI IN are available in the inputs selection. As well, A-PRO and A-PRO MIDI OUT are in the outputs selection. When I go to control surfaces with ALL of these inputs and outputs enabled for the A-PRO, I click on the yellow plus sign that opens up the new control surface dialog box. I then click on the bar to select the control surface at the top, but A-PRO isn't listed in the drop down. Instead I see, "ACT MIDI controller". If I select that, and use A-PRO 2 for my input and none for the output, I can select A-PRO 2 as my input for an instrument. As well, when I have the O control map selected that comes with the midi controller, I can control the knobs and slider for channel 1. The rest of the knobs and sliders, however, remain inoperative. Furthermore, the keys don't make sound. If I do the same thing but use A-PRO 1 for my input in control surfaces, I can get my keys, joystick and drum pads to work but not the controllers.
How should I configure my input/output settings to enable both areas of my keyboard?
Thanks so much for the input! I'll attempt further set up work.
Sadly, I've discovered a separate puzzle regarding the A Pro Windows 10 Driver. The Roland website says my computer will automatically download the driver when the device is plugged in. So I plugged it in, turned it on, and nothing happened. I opened Task Manager and couldn't see any downloads called "A Pro Driver" and also had no pop up notifications. I then checked "Device installation settings" in system properties and found automatic downloads selected. So.....
If I can't automatically download and install the driver, how do I do so manually?
I'm using Windows 10. My goal is to make a control map for my Roland A-800Pro midi controller to enable full operation of Cakewalk. Currently, I'm having trouble assigning my transport buttons to their Cakewalk equivalents. I read elsewhere that it takes two kinds of software to fully operate the A-Pro (at least in Cakewalk). The A-Pro Editor and the A-Pro Control Surface plug-in. The latter appears to be unattainable as the website went stale and the account creation was disabled.
In addition, the official Roland website states that the Windows 10 driver for the A-Pro midi controller does not support the plug-in for Cakewalk.
1. Is there another website where I can download the A-Pro Control Surface plug-in?
2. If the Windows 10 driver does not support the plug-in, is there an alternative?
3. If no plug-in is available, are there alternative methods to assigning my transport controls, etc.?
Please explain. Thank you.
Control Mapping Issues with the Roland A-Pro
Posted · Edited by Tune
Oh! That helps haha. Thanks!
I've made progress! I can now control my knobs and sliders as well as the keys and everything else at once! I just needed to select "All inputs" when inserting an instrument and that did the trick. Also I have Control Map "0" selected, the one for Sonar. However...
My transport controls still don't do anything... Perhaps I'll have to program them myself?
