Roland D-05 Editor Help

Connecting via USB MIDI

The D-05 requires special drivers from Roland in order to use USB via its MIDI connection. Since drivers can't be installed on iPad, the D-05 can only connect to your iPad via the MIDI DIN In and Out ports.

For Mac, you can download the drivers from Roland here. Once you have successfully installed the drivers and restarted your computer you should see a "D-05" option for both MIDI In and Out in Patch Base's MIDI setup menu.
