I bought this to go from my Roland TD-4 set to a Win7 x64 machine so that I could listen to YouTubes and drum DVDs while playing along. Not so much. The drums were seen immediately and beautifully by Mixcraft 5, but there was such a horrible delay from strike to sound that I had to use a different driver (can't for the life of me remember the name) that allowed Mixcraft direct access to the sound card, rather than through Windows sound driver. This causes Mixcraft to take over the sound card, so no other application can use it (YouTube, Media Player). Not a good way to go.
But I digress. The cable worked beautifully, so 5 stars. Windows, on the other hand, does not. This allows me to connect, but it is in a very limited fashion that is not the cables fault.
