Roland Audio Partially Compatible With Windows 10

Windows 10 compatible drivers are being released as tested

By Stephen Pate – Roland/Boss, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of musical equipment, is playing catch-up releasing compatible drivers for Windows 10.

Since Windows 8, device drivers had to be signed as compatible with the latest Microsoft operating systems. Roland is a bit slow testing and releasing their signed drivers.

Here’s the latest list of driver compatibility published this week. For many of us without drivers, the situations is a little frustrating; however, Roland usually get the drivers done within a week or two.

Owners of the A-300PRO,  A-500PRO and A-800PRO will be disappointed the control software is not being updated; however, they should work with the host program. I don’t have mine anymore so I can’t say for sure. If anyone has one, please leave a comment.

  1. Typical of Roland NOT to suport anything that is more than 18 months old
    The drivers for 8.1 and 7 are not that different but Roland does not wish to update the installer and submit to Microsoft for approval so ddspjte the fact that Roland gear is well made and lives up to its claims and specs sorry but its now on my crap. List, goodbye Roland, and my customers wil be advise to drop them as well.
