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It has been superseded by USB-based devices.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 3.2.2 for macOS

This version no longer refuses to open the "MIDI devices" dialog box when a MIDI I/O device doesn't have a name, manufacturer, model or unique ID. Instead, the "MIDI devices" dialog box now calls any undefined property "UNDEFINED".

A-880 Manager 3.2.1 for Windows - Installer

Main new features of this version:

  • The update check mechanism works again on Windows 7, Windows 8 and "older" (i.e. pre-TLS 1.3) Windows 10.
  • The application has become more user-friendly concerning data errors in ".stp" and ".mru" configuration files: On startup, when the application encounters a data error in a configuration file, the application now mentions the exact name of the offending file, and no longer refuses to start. Hence it is no longer necessary to delete corrupt configuration files manually. On exit, the application reports any errors while saving configuration files.

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