Hi, I'm new to the Forum.
I'm trying to drive the BK (Roland) arranger without keyboard, with the PRO-E (Roland arranger) with keyboard.
I connected OUT (PRO-E) with IN (BK).
I would like to play only the accompaniments of the BK.
I activated Real Time and Note to Arrange (ch 1).
When I play a chord on the PRO-E, the Drum starts but I don't hear the chord accompaniment.
Can anyone help me to solve the problem? I've been working on it for a month but I can't.
Do I have to set some other Midi function between the two?

Make sure they are both using the same channel.

Unfortunately, I also am not personally familiar with either device, but hopefully the manuals can offer some insight if you haven't gone through them yet.

I'm not familiar with either of these devices, but I suspect that you have a problem regarding the difference between what is possible with midi, and what is possible with the device when being used normally. Specifically, with the auto accompaniment. This may be able to generate notes in response to keys pressed, but maybe NOT in response to midi data received.

You need to check the manual for this device very carefully - there may be something that can be set to enable this. It will be to do with how the various sections of the electronics in the BK are connected together. Receiving a midi key-press might NOT be the same thing as a physical key-press.

I have a Casio keyboard which has a lot of auto-accomp functions, these are selected using a function/mode switch which also has an option for midi operation, but the midi operation and the chord/accomp functions are mutually exclusive, i.e. using one excludes the other. What you're trying to do may hit the same or a similar problem.
