MIDI Option with Sound Canvas VA

The game's MIDI option was intended to be used with a Roland SC-88 Pro. Alternatively, an officially released software synth called Sound Canvas VA can be used, which emulates all four Sound Canvas modules, including the SC-88 Pro
  1. Download SAVIHost.
  2. Place the SAVIHost EXE in C:\ProgramData\Roland Cloud\Sound Canvas VA, and rename it SOUND Canvas VA.exe.
  3. Install LoopMIDI and MIDIMapper
  4. Open LoopMIDI and the EXE you renamed.
  5. In SAVIHost, make sure to click "Options" and then "SYSTEM" in the Sound Canvas VA interface, and set the Map Mode to "SC-88Pro"
  6. Go to the Devices menu, and select "MIDI". Then set "Input Port 1" to "loopMIDI Port"
  7. Open MIDIMapper, and set the default MIDI device to "loopMIDI Port".


Unless Sound Canvas VA is registered, it will only play for 10 minutes before it stops playing. This can somewhat be alleviated by simply closing the SAVIHost window, and opening it again.
