I've had some problems with my roland edirol pcr-500 - the built in usb 
midi sort of works but there's a small but noticeable random delay 
between pressing a key and hearing the note. I managed to cure this by 
using the built in midi port and switching to a separate midi to usb 
card, but obviously this isn't ideal.
