High-quality key action for the serious player
With a newly designed key mechanism - taken from Roland’s 30 years of synthesizer development - you can control a wide dynamic range with incredible subtlety. The redesigned key assemblies have a rounded shape for better reaction to your touch and more comfortable glissando, plus changes have been made to reduce the already low mechanical noise of the PCR-M50 and eliminate vertical shake on the key strokes. The newly developed pitch bend and modulation design offers you easier and more expressive control. The PCR-M50 is a keyboard that even the most discerning player can appreciate.

Comprehensive connections for maximizing your performance
With the PCR-M50 you can connect everything using just one USB cable. Since the power is supplied from the computer, no AC adaptor is needed. The same USB connection provides MIDI I/O ports that allow the keyboard to function as a MIDI interface for other external MIDI devices. It addition, 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! With the interface mode turned on, the PCR-M50 can control multiple applications at the same time. Control your DAW and software synthesizer at the same time. The MIDI processing in the PCR-M50 is compatible with FPT (Fast Processing Technology) to provide stable, high speed, low latency, and low jitter MIDI transmission.

27 individual fully-assignable controllers
The PCR-M50 provides you with 8 knobs, 8 sliders, 9 buttons, and 2 pedal inputs. That’s 27 MIDI controllers in one compact surface! These controllers can be assigned to any MIDI message, Control Change (CC), RPN, NRPN, System Exclusive and more. You can choose what parameters to control in your MIDI hardware and software to create the perfect playing environment.

Twelve selectable velocity curve combinations
Pick from 12 velocity curves to precisely match your playing style. As the PCR-M50 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 is provided in which the PCR-M50 always outputs a fixed velocity (from 1 to 127), providing practical input for drum and percussion programming in step recording.

PCR Editor software and downloadable control maps
The PCR-M50 keyboard works with all major music applications, and is equipped with user memory locations to store up to 15 different control maps. PCR Editor software for use with the PCR-M50 is included. The PCR Editor allows for extensive and convenient control of your PCR-M50 from a PC or Mac. The PCR Editor is designed to assist in creating control maps for the PCR-M50 and allows you to quickly and easily assign any function to the 27 controls. This powerful software also allows you to copy system exclusive messages for the PCR-M50 into a sequence so that controls can be mapped or changed during a sequence. In addition to offering easy implementation of different MIDI messages, the PCR Editor also allows you to specify minimum and maximum values for each control. Supports Win 98/Me/2000/XP, Mac OS X & Mac OS 9.x.
