Connecting an IBM PC (Compatible) Computer
Connect the serial port (COM port) of the IBM PC (compatible) computer to the TO HOST
connector on the X5DR using a computer interface cable (optional AG-001).
IBM PC (compatible)
To transmit data (such as Program data) from the TO HOST connector of the X5DR to the
computer, set 2B EXT OUT SEL of the Global mode to PCIF. (see page 14.)
• You may not be able to use this connection, depending on the model of computer or the type
of sequencer software. Application software that is not compatible with Windows MME
(Multimedia Extensions) or Windows 3.1 (except for those speciﬁcally supporting the X5DR)
cannot be used with this connection.
• If the computer has a 25-pin serial port, use an optional AG-004 9-to-25-pin adapter.
Set 0D PC I/F CLK of the Global mode to "38.4kBPS" (see page 14).
If you use this connection with Windows MME or Windows 3.1, you need to install the Korg MIDI
Driver. Refer to page 174 for installation information.
