    The Korg drivers for Windows 10 don't work (for me) on Windows 10 1809 (LTSC) ... but the original Microsoft driver "Audio Video Game Controller" does. To get there goto the device manager in Windows, and uninstall the Korg driver, say "yes" in the dialogue "delete Korg driver files" and that's it. Switch off / on the SQ64, then Windows installs the default Microsoft driver and in M1 LE now sound works bidirectional, even drums on a different Midi channel. When the Korg driver installer pops up just say "no". I can select the SQ64 as Midi input and output, I can assign a midi channel in M1 to receive one of the keyboard tracks on the SQ64 and that's all I need when I am travelling. Having a handy sequencer at my hand and everything else as software synthesizer. Even the feature stripped LE edition does well for me :-) Unfortunately Korg itself told me they can't help me, pls ask the local dealer... WTF? They're no IT engineers but I am.I have to say that the default setup of the SQ64 is sort of stupid as Midi to USB TX is switched off for all tracks... took me 30 min to figure out that because the itsy bitsy manual which is basically a feature list but not a real help. Will make my own tutorial... my guess is that the Korg drivers are meant for Windows 10 not having the latest Midi software infrastructure, because the Korg Midi driver replaces some things and then the SQ64 isn't listed any more as Midi in device e.g. for the Korg M1 LE but also for other tools I have like Audacity or Musescore. Yes Musescore... can read midi in and uses the MS Midi mapper that comes with the Midi General setup and wavetables.

    The issue is the the Korg driver only allows for up to 10 MIDI devices. This is what I do.
