    Hi .. I'm looking for help connecting my U20 keyboard (via midi
    interface cable) to the joystick port of my soundcard .. and using the
    U20 sound canvass to edit / playback midi files. I think i need a midi
    device driver so that windows is able to fetch sounds (for cakewalk)
    from the u20. It would be most appreciatec if anyone knows how i can
    do this .. or what Midi driver i need
    many Thanks.

    It shouldn't need a driver. The U-20 is purely a MIDI equipped ROMupler
    (sample playback) keyboard.
    It's no 'sound canvas' so trying to use such an editor will not get you
    far. Don't even think the U-20 had a GM mode.
    If you are using Cakewalk, it sounds to me if you are referring to a
    definition file. This lists the presets, making patch selection from
    Cakewalk easier as what is on the screen matches the LCD of the U-20.

    I'm unable to access Cakewalk at the moment, so I'm not sure if there's
    a def file in there or not.
    If there is, I'm sure it will be in the Roland folder. I also believe
    the U-220 is the same beast minus the actual keyboard.
