Product Description

The Edirol PCR-30 keyboard - the most advanced 32-key MIDI keyboard controller available. Never before has there been a better compact keyboard for use with popular sequencers and software synthesizers. The PCR-30 takes MIDI control to a new level with unprecedented versatility.

Features:
32 full-sized, velocity sensitive keys

8 assignable rotary knobs (cut off, resonance, pan, tempo, etc.)

8 assignable faders (volume, EFX send, etc.)

9 assignable buttons (program change, track mute, start, stop, etc.)

1 sustain pedal connection

1 expression pedal connection

MIDI in & MIDI out

Pitch & Modulation controls (Newly redesigned to be linearly controlled for more accurate performance)

1 Preset Memory & 15 User Memory locations

USB Bus powered or AC adaptor

Template sheets for controls

The PCR-30 can control a number of parameters not accessible from other controller keyboards at this price point; such as RPN, NRPN, SysEx.

The PCR-30 is fully compatible with all the latest operating systems including WinXP and Mac OSX. It is the ideal keyboard for use with Arturia Storm, SONAR, Cubase, Reason, FruityLoops, and most other popular sequencers and software synthesizers. As such it comes equipped with templates for these and other programs.

It can also run from either the included power supply or draw power from the USB port for maximum portability.

The PCR-30 is also equipped with V-LINK that allows you to trigger and control video material in real-time via the DV-7PR (sold separately).

If you are looking for the same great features in a 49 key unit, check out the PCR-50.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (60 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Just buy it."
Sound: Not applicable. Feature: The manual for this puppy is HUGE because this is a full featured MIDI controller, endlessly configurable for whatever application you might need it for. Far beyond your usual DAW software, this could conceivably control any piece of MIDI gear ever made. Quality: Very sturdy -- far more sturdy than I anticipated. The build quality is very good. The sliders, knobs, keys, and mod-lever all feel very solid to me. Value: Compare it to other MIDI controllers capable of what the PCR-30 is capable of and you'll quickly see it's definitely one of the least expensive and full-featured in its class. Manufacturer Support: Haven't anything go wrong with it. Edirol's website is very good and the PCR editor software (free) is a sign of their committment to supporting this product. The Wow Factor: It's silver and has some nice curves. The keys feel nice and it feels good to slide the levers up and down. Overall: I wouldn't trade this for any other MIDI interface/keyboard on the market. Roland/Edirol have been making keyboards for years and it shows in the build quality of this unit. If you have a larger 61- or 76- key keyboard as I do, this makes an excellent addition to your setup, something you can plop on the desk and have at hand when you really need it. If you are into computer music and don't have a keyboard, this will suit your needs (provided you don't want to play any Bach Tocattas on it... buy the 61-key version for that ;)
Style of Music: Jazz, Electronica, R&B, Pop, Rock, Classical, New Age, whatever

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. Edirol PCR-30 Controller Customer Review
Sound: NA - It's just a controller, no sound. Feature: What an awesome piece of equipment. From note velocity to sliders with a good feel. Quality in this product. I'm AMAZED at the number of features in something for $120. If you hesitate buying this product your just out of your mind. Quality: The buttons, switches and feel is great. The case is run of the mill plastic which I wasnt impressed with but does the job. Display is sharp, color is good and overall im very impressed. Value: For the money I dont see how you could beat it. The Wow Factor: I'm not hip to the silver color. Black would have been a better choice for me. Knobs, sliders, you name it. I use it for hooking into Buzz for controlling midi, mixing, etc. Works great. Overall: Aside from the smaller issues this get's a 10. You couldnt beat the quality, features and functionatily with a stick.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
