The next generation of Edirol controller keyboards

A new generation of Edirol’s popular Keyboard MIDI Controllers has also been introduced. In addition to providing more physical controls than previous models, the PCR-300, PCR-500 and the PCR-800 also offers new innovative and intuitive controls. All three models are solidly built, and optimized for both music production and live performance.

The new ultra-sensitive keyboards provide a wider dynamic range under the player’s fingertips, while new aftertouch sensors allow the keyboardist to play more expressively. Smooth key action, keys shaped for comfortable glissando playing, silent operation, and stable key mounting all contribute to the enhanced playability of these keyboards.

The new PCR series has all the existing controls of the previous range, but adds exciting new features, such as velocity pads — perfect for playing drums and triggering sampler phrases. These precision pads can operate as buttons or velocity pads, and the handy LED indicators identify if they are velocity or fixed-velocity.

Edirol introduce the PCR-300, PCR-500, PCR-800 USB MIDI Keyboard Controllers

Setting New Standards in Portable MIDI Control

Introducing the next generation of EDIROL’s popular MIDI keyboard controllers. In addition to providing more physical controls than previous models, the PCR-300 also offers new innovative and intuitive controls. This controller is solidly built, and optimized for both music production and live performance.

Models incude…

Edirol PCR-300

A 32-note velocity-sensitive MIDI Keyboard Controller with 50 assignable MIDI controllers, 18 velocity pads, a crossfader, a software editor, MIDI input and output, and both sustain and expression pedal connection.

Edirol PCR-500

A 49-note velocity-sensitive MIDI Keyboard Controller with 50 assignable MIDI controllers, 18 velocity pads, a crossfader, a software editor, MIDI input and output, and both sustain and expression pedal connection.

Edirol PCR-800

A 61-note velocity-sensitive MIDI Keyboard Controller with 50 assignable MIDI controllers, 18 velocity pads, a crossfader, a software editor, MIDI input and output, and both sustain and expression pedal connection.

50 x Assignable Controllers

The new PCR Series offers all the controls of previous models, but with the addition of even more controls that allow players to maximize the playability and operability of their MIDI hardware and software.

Assignable Controls & 18 x Velocity Pads

The new PCR Series has all the existing controls of the previous range, but adds exciting new features, such as velocity pads — perfect for playing drums and triggering sampler phrases. These precision pads can operate as buttons or velocity pads, and the handy LED indicators identify which of the two modes is selected.

Unique Crossfader & Long-Throw Sliders

The new Crossfader allows control of two parameters at the same time, and can be used to control synthesizer filters, DJ gestures and more. The new longer-throw sliders can control eight track faders and one master fader, or function as organ drawbars.

High-Quality Keyboards with Aftertouch

The new ultra-sensitive keyboards provide a wider dynamic range under the player’s fingertips, while new aftertouch sensors allow the keyboardist to play more expressively. Smooth key action, keys shaped for comfortable glissando playing, silent operation, and stable key mounting all contribute to the enhanced playability of these keyboards.

Intelligent “Dynamic Mapping” and Editor Software

Dynamic Mapping allows the PCR to automatically assign its physical controls to the most important parameters (e.g. in the current window of the software being used). Fifteen user memory locations are provided for storing your favorite setups. When using software that’s not compatible with Dynamic Mapping, you can manually configure the Control Map settings from the PCR itself or the included PCR Editor Software (Mac or Win).

Side Panel Connections for Streamlined Routing

The rear panel of the keyboard is free of connections so that you can easily have a computer display (e.g. LCD monitor), ASCII keyboard, mouse & mouse pad, or laptop computer behind the keyboard — in the ideal position for use. This is especially beneficial for educational users in classrooms where space is often restricted. All connections are located on the left side – USB, MIDI IN/OUT plus separate Hold and Expression pedal ports. The PCR keyboard works with USB bus power. AC adaptor not required. (The optional PSB series AC Adaptor is sold separately.) A MIDI Merge capability from the MIDI input to either the MIDI output (or to the computer via USB) is also provided, and is convenient for advanced MIDI systems.

Edirol PCR M80 MIDI Controller Keyboard

The PCR-M80 is a revised version of the popular PCR-80 MIDI Keyboard Controller.  Like the PCR-80, the PCR-M80 offers direct connection to the computer through USB, 61-Keys, 27 assignable MIDI controllers, a software editor, MIDI input and output, and both sustain and expression pedal connections.  Some advancement the PCR-M80 has made over the PCR-80 includes the addition of velocity curves, switchable MIDI interface, and a new key-action found on Roland’s higher-end synths.  The PCR-M80‘s key-action has been refined to produce even less mechanical noise than its predecessor and offer a consistent, playable feel.  The keys themselves are slightly more rounded to keep your fingers from tripping over the keys during quick glissandi.

Edirol PCR M50 MIDI Controller Keyboard

The Edirol PCR-M50 MIDI Keyboard is a revised version of the popular PCR-50 MIDI Keyboard Controller.  Like the PCR-50, the PCR-M50 offers direct connection to the computer through USB, 49-Keys, 27 assignable MIDI controllers, a software editor, MIDI input and output, and both sustain and expression pedal connections.  Some advancement the PCR-M50 has made over the PCR-50 includes the addition of velocity curves, switchable MIDI interface, and a new key-action found on Roland’s higher-end synths.  The PCR-M50‘s key-action has been refined to produce even less mechanical noise than its predecessor and offer a consistent, playable feel.  The keys themselves are slightly more rounded to keep your fingers from tripping over the keys during quick glissandi.  The Pitchbend/Modulation has a new rubber coating for easier grip.

Edirol PCR M30 MIDI Controller Keyboard

The PCR-M30 is a revised version of the popular PCR-30 MIDI Keyboard Controller.  Like the PCR-30, the PCR-M30 offers direct connection to the computer through USB, 32-Keys, 27 assignable MIDI controllers, a software editor, MIDI input and output, and both sustain and expression pedal connections.  Some advancement the PCR-M30 has made over the PCR-30 includes the addition of velocity curves, switchable MIDI interface, and a new key-action found on Roland’s higher-end synths.  The PCR-M30‘s key-action has been refined to produce even less mechanical noise than its predecessor and offer a consistent, playable feel.  The keys themselves are slightly more rounded to keep your fingers from tripping over the keys during quick glissandi.  The Pitchbend/Modulation has a new rubber coating for easier grip.

Edirol PCR-M1 is the MIDI-only version of the popular PCR-1 compact USB Keyboard controller

The PCR-M1 is a 25-Key MIDI controller that measures just over one inch thick and weighs less than three pounds. With Edirol’s S.L.I.M. technology, full-sized keys with a shorter travel distance deliver a very comfortable playable action.The PCR-M1 has been designed specifically to meet the needs of travelling musicians, performers, and home studios alike with features such as three options: directly from the USB port, from 4 AAA batteries or from an optional AC adapter. The PCR-M1 has a new rotary encoder that can be assigned to scroll program changes, scroll saved control maps, adjust velocity sensitivity, change MIDI channel, or adjust tempo. This allows the user to change settings without entering the Edit menu for even more rapid recall and adjustment.

The PCR-M1 is built on the same technologies that have made its larger PCR brothers a standard in MIDI control; including the ability to assign absolutely any MIDI message to any of the assignable physical controls, 16 memory locations to store different control maps, minimum and maximum value adjustments for each control, rapid changing of control maps, downloadable presets, an integrated 1×1 MIDI interface, a powerful software editor, and V-LINK support.

More specifically, the PCR-M1 offers separate pitch bend and modulation controls along with a number of assignable controls; 8 knobs, 6 buttons, 1 sustain pedal, and 1 expression pedal. The PCR-M1 also has a SHIFT button to allow a second message to be assigned to the 8 knobs and 3 of the buttons for a total of 27 control assignments per control map.
