Hello, my name is Rusty. Due to the age of that keyboard, you're not going to have a driver made for Windows 10, ever. You can still use the midi ports on it, those haven't changed since the 70s. There is a device made for exactly this.

Connect the midi in on the adapter to midi OUT on your keyboard. Plug the Um-One into your computer, and Windows 10 is compatible with it. It will act as the facilitator, and your keyboard is now compatible with Windows 10.

Is there a reason why the one I'm using won't work but the Roland one would work? Here's the one I'm using. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/For-Laptop-USB-to-MIDI-Interface-Cable-Music-Keyboard-Adapter-Converter-Cable-UK/153895678459?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

Yes, for one, that one says it works with XP/Vista. Not Windows 10. You can't trust those cheap ones, they have errors as well. The Um One is really the only product that is reliable, and works with Windows 10.
