30+ years ago I managed to connect my Roland GR-1 guitar synth to my computer.
I don't remember the software I was using at the time, but I was able to record
the synth sounds in the GR-1 to computer.

I would like to do the same today, use my GR-1, but this time with RealBand.

If someone can give me guidance on how to make the basic connections I'd really appreciate it. smile
My GR-1 has Midi IN/OUT. I plug in my midi-enabled guitar into the GR-1.

So the GR-1 is both a midi controller and midi synth.
I would like to get at the synth sounds in the GR-1 and record them in RealBand.

I also have an Edirol UA-25EX audio interface with midi IN/OUT and a USB connection.

If it were me I'd record Audio Out of the GR-1 .. not the MIDI
MIDI has no sound, I think you want to record what you hear from the GR-1 as Audio, if I read that correctly

so Audio Out of GR-1 to computer, sounds like you want to record what you hear while playing it
Options - Preferences - Audio
The Drivers button lets you select what RB records .. getting the GR-1 to send Audio to that selected device is the key

Thanks very much rharv for helping out!
Yes you guessed right what I am after. smile
Using your instructions I am now able to get the synth sounds from my GR-1 into RealBand.

There's just one little problem now.
There is a latency issue. The tracking on my guitar has always been very good. No real
observable delays.
I looked at my notes from years ago and see that I was using an ASIO4ALL driver.
Do you think that might fix the problem?
Or is there another setting to look out for?

Yes, ASIO drivers fix the latency issue
using a decent USB audio interface is often the best solution.
