drum - Late 90s / Re: Alesis DM5 (late 1995)

Don't work... they look like they contain the right driver, but pointing windows to the inf file provided results in the PCS (serial port) driver being installed
Trying to install this on my Win98SE machine and can't find the right driver. Downloaded the recommended one from the midiman / m-audio website but as far as I can tell it's for another interface (PC/P), and seems to be missing files.

I'm going to keep digging online but would appreciate any leads!

a note frm the manual on using more than one interface from event/echo

"fortunately, your new layla will operate with gina + darla in the same system! "
so i think this system was also compatible with macintosh..
on macintosh it could be connected via something they called the digidesign 8 voice ELVIS card?
