Roland XV-2020 Editor Help

Connecting via USB

To connect your XV-2020 to your Mac or iPad via USB, the synth must be set to use the “Generic” USB Driver (the official Roland driver is no longer supported on modern systems). To change this setting on your XV-2020:

  1. While holding down [VOLUME], press [VALUE].
  2. Turn [CATEGORY/BANK] to choose "USB DESCRIPTOR."
  3. Turn [VALUE] to select “GEN”.
  4. Press [VALUE] to set (write) the value.
  5. While holding down [VOLUME], press [VALUE].

Then, restart your XV-2020, and it should now appear as a MIDI device on your Mac/iPad.
