The PCR-500 USB MIDI keyboard controller provides a full set of tools for live or studio performance with 50 fully assignable controls including drum pads! The updated PCR Series has all the existing controls of the previous range, but adds exciting new features, such as velocity padsâperfect 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. The crossfader allows control of two parameters at the same time, and can be used to control synthesizer filters, DJ gestures, and more. The long-throw sliders can control eight track faders and one master fader, or function as organ drawbars.
High-Quality Keyboard with Aftertouch
The ultra sensitive keyboard provides a wider dynamic range under your fingertips, while advanced aftertouch sensors allow you 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 it's 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 and mouse pad, or laptop computer behind the keyboard â 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.
