I have downloaded some trial piano sample software to my laptop computer. I have a Yamaha P-80, and I want to use it to check out the piano sounds of this software. The P-80 docs say to use the "To Host" port to my Windows computer using an 8 pin mini din to 9 pin RS232 cable, and download a driver from Yamaha. I don't have one of those cables handy, but I do have a Tascom US800 USB interface unit and a 5 pin midi cable. Can I just connect the p-80 midi out to the US800 with the 5-pin midi cable, and go from there. I have the Tascam driver installed on the computer. Will the Truepianos, Pianoteq, and Pianissimo software recognize the p-80?
