Hi everyone. I just bought an old JL Cooper CS-10 rs-232 model software controller off ebay. This is a product that was discontinued in around 1995, but was made to operate with programs such as pro-tools, seagram, etc. The reason I downloaded the Serial-Midi converter is because as this piece of equipment is an old Mac Serial device, I have no way of using it on my PC.
What I've done is spliced the 8 pin mini-din with a 9 pin d-sub, and bought a 9 pin serial to USB adapter. I have installed the drivers that came with the adapter and created a virtual COM port that this USB adapter is plugged into. This is where I need the Serial-Midi converter.
I'm running a Vista 32-bit system with SP1. When I open the Serial-Midi converter, it just displays "PORT [A]: COM3" in the dialogue box and the bottom reads "Press the number key that matches your arduino's serial port." The status bar within the program is blank. I have no idea how to operate it because number keys don't do anything within the program. Any help would be appreciated!
