A-880

The Roland A-880 was a MIDI Patcher/Mixer at the heart of many MIDI studios in the 1990s.
It has been superseded by USB-based devices.

A-880 Manager is an application that allows you to upload and download connection setups to and from the A-880.
It is available for macOS and Windows.

A-880 Manager 3.1.0 manual

This is the manual for A-880 Manager 3.1.0.

Note: The A-880 Manager installer contains this manual too and will install it automatically, so you don't need to download it separately here, unless you wish to read it before running the installer. So if you're just updating from a previous version, you can safely skip downloading the manual separately: just download and install the update to A-880 Manager, and you'll be able to read the automatically installed manual anyway.

A-880 Manager 3.0.0.1 for OS X

This release fixes one tiny bug:
Opening the "Roland System Exclusive message(s)" dialog box (from the "System Exclusive messages" window) no longer removes the "A-880 Manager" pull-down menu from the menu bar.

Main new features of this version:

  • The installer automatically installs the edition of A-880 Manager matching the operating system: the 32-bit edition on 32-bit Windows, the 64-bit edition on 64-bit Windows. (Previously there was only a 32-bit edition, which was installed on 32- and 64-bit Windows alike.)
  • The A-880 Manager update mechanism allows you to specify in which update types you are interested: alpha (development) versions, (‘public’) beta versions, release candidates and release versions.

See section 2 of the manual for the full list of changes.
