25 Standard-Width Velocity-Sensitive keys
The PCR-M1 offers standard-width keys with 128-step velocity sensitivity to ensure easy playing.
The PCR-M1 has the same S.L.I.M. keyboard as in the PCR-1. Edirol has devised this keyboard-action technology known as S.L.I.M. (Short-stroke Low-profile Impact Mechanism) to allow a compact MIDI keyboard to maintain incredible playability.
Thin, Light Body
The PCR-M1 is just over one-inch thick and weighs 2lbs 11oz. Ideal for traveling musicians, mobile DJs, and home-recording musicians working with limited space.
27 Fully Assignable Controllers: 8 Knobs, 6 Buttons, and 2 Pedal Ports (with Shift Function)
The PCR-M1 offers eight assignable knobs, six assignable buttons, and two assignable pedal ports. The Shift button changes the assignable parameters in eight knobs and three of the six buttons for a total of 27 controllable parameters per control map. The PCR-M1 also has a rotary encoder that can be assigned to scroll program changes, scroll saved control maps, adjust velocity sensitivity, change MIDI channels, or adjust tempo. This allows the user to change these settings without entering the Edit menu for more rapid recall and adjustment.
Separate Pitch Bender & Modulation Controls
The new improved pitch bender in the PCR-M1 transmits incrementally for consistent continuous (non-stepped) control.
16 Control Map Memory Locations
The PCR-M1 offers 16 different save locations for control maps. With 27 parameters available per control map, the PCR-M1 offers control over a total of over 400 parameters held in the memory of the keyboard.
MIDI In/Out Ports
It is easy to connect the PCR-M1 to a MIDI device with just one cable. The PCR-M1 can export the same MIDI signals to both USB and MIDI cable at the same time — very convenient.
Expression and Sustain Pedal Ports
Connect Roland’s EV-5 Expression pedal or DP-2 or DP-6 Sustain pedal to the PCR-M1 directly. Control parameters through these ports are fully assignable. For these jacks, a pair of pedal-conversion cables (1/8" TRS to 1/4" female) comes with the PCR-M1.
3-Way Power Supply: USB/Battery/AC Adaptor
The PCR-M1 was specifically designed for mobile computer musicians. It's also designed for mobile musicians. The three choices of power are very convenient, allowing usage in any condition. EDIROL designs its USB devices in accordance with USB specifications and has passed all compatibility tests, which are continuously held and organized by USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF).
