Industry Standard Real-time MIDI Controller for the Musician

With a newly designed key mechanism ― taken from Roland's 30 years of synthesizer development ― players can control a wide dynamic range at will. The re-designed white & black key assemblies have a rounded shape for better reaction to the player’s touch and more comfortable glissando, plus changes have been made to reduce mechanical noise and eliminate vertical shake on the key strokes. In conjunction with this, the newly developed pitch bend and modulation design offers you easier and more expressive control. All these features add up to a keyboard that even the most discerning player can appreciate.

High Quality Mechanism for the Serious Player

With a newly designed key mechanism ― taken from Roland's 30 years of synthesizer development ― players can control a wide dynamic range at will. The re-designed white & black key assemblies have a rounded shape for better reaction to the player’s touch and more comfortable glissando, plus changes have been made to reduce mechanical noise and eliminate vertical shake on the key strokes. In conjunction with this, the newly developed pitch bend and modulation design offers you easier and more expressive control. All these features add up to a keyboard that even the most discerning player can appreciate.

Twelve Selectable Velocity Curve Combinations

Pick from 12 velocity curves to precisely match your playing style. As the PCR-M30 has 4 different velocity curves and 3 kinds of sensitivity (Light, Medium, and Heavy), the player can find the combination that perfectly suits them and can produce the precise MIDI performance and programming of a true professional. In addition, a Fixed Velocity Mode can output a constant fixed velocity (from 1 to 127) providing practical input for drum and percussion programming in step recording.

Comprehensive Connectivity for Maximizing Player's Performance

Connect everything with one USB cable. Since the power is supplied from the computer, no AC adaptor is needed. The same USB connection provides MIDI IN and OUT ports that allow the keyboard to function as a MIDI interface to other external MIDI devices. It addition to this, all the information from keys and controllers can be sent through the MIDI OUT port so that you can control both software and external MIDI devices at the same time (MIDI Interface mode = OFF). With the interface mode turned on, the PCR-M30 can control multiple applications at the same time. Control your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and software synthesizer at the same time. The MIDI processing in the PCR-M30 is compatible with FPT (Fast Processing Technology). This technology is independent of the music application you are using. It provides stable, high speed, low latency, and low jitter MIDI transmission.

27 Individual Fully-assignable Controllers

The PCR-M30 provides you with 8 knobs, 8 sliders, 9 buttons, and 2 pedal ports. These controllers can be assigned to any MIDI message, Control Change(CC), RPN, NRPN, System Exclusive and more. You get to choose what parameters to control in your MIDI hardware and software to create the perfect playing environment.

PCR Editor software and Downloadable Memory Sets (Control Maps) on the web

The PCR series keyboards work with all major music applications, and is equipped with user memory locations to store up to 15 different controller arrangements. PCR Editor software for use with the EDIROL PCR Keyboard Series is included. The PCR Editor allows for extensive and convenient control of the PCR keyboards from a PC or Mac. The PCR Editor is designed to assist in creating control maps for the PCR and allow users to quickly and easily make assignments to any of the 27 assignable controls. This powerful software also allows the user to copy system exclusive messages for the PCR into a sequence so the controls can be mapped or changed during a sequence. In addition to accessing easy implementation of different MIDI messages, you can specify minimum and maximum values for each control. Supports Win98/Me/2000/XP, Mac OS X & Mac OS 9.x.
