Connect the cable MIDI OUT to the MIDI IN of the SC-55.
Then find out where the other end goes in the PC. Is it a USB port or a sound card MIDI port?
Start Cakewalk, go to the Setting Menu and click on MIDI Devices. Select the MIDI OUT port (USB or SB OUT), and put it on top.
Go to the Setting Menu again, and click on Instruments.
Highlight the first 16 channels on the left and click on General MIDI on the right. Then select channel 10 on the left and click on GM drums on the right.
Now you can use the SC-55 to play your GM files.
