Edirol PCR-50
Nice that you can save your settings in the form of a midi file. This is cool because you can load your settings for whichever software package you are currently using.

Price paid

$230

UTILIZATION

Pretty easy to use. Although you don't need midi maps to use the product, It would've been nice if they added the midi maps on a disk with the product. You have to go to Edirol's site to download "pre-canned" (midi) format files for different software packages such as FL, Sonic, Logic, etc.

OVERALL OPINION

All knobs, faders and keys are pretty durable. They don't feel "plastic-y".

Edirol PCR-50
Feature complete for a MIDI keyboard. The only minor thing I wish it had was dedicated buttons for playback and transport.

Price paid

$200

UTILIZATION

Once it's configured, it's a snap to use. The initial uploading of the MIDI data to control my sequencer was fine, but reading the manual on how to customize some of the buttons was not intuitive.

OVERALL OPINION

Seeing as the small footprint and configurable knobs are something (that when I purchased this unit) were new aspects of my interaction with my sequencer, it's all love...

Edirol PCR-50
At the time of purchase (mabey 2 years ago?) this thing had some of the best features available... compared to today's standards though, it's lacking in a few areas, but still the basic bread and butter and is all you really need. wish it had play, scrub, record, stop, etc. buttons though :

Price paid

$230 USD

UTILIZATION

You can use the editor (download from edirol site), or if you got reason 3, it automatically recognizes it and you don't have to do jack! the interface is a bit cryptic.

this is where i have my gripe with the pcr 50... at first i thought this thing was really good quality, it feels as if it's pretty good, but then the middle black key in the lowest octave stopped working. i took a can of air and stuck it right between the keys, dust busted it, and then it worked (sort of) a few months later, that key stoped working despite attempts to clean it.

OVERALL OPINION

I don't really care. controllers are over rated. gimme one with like 3 knobs and two sliders and a bunch of keys that work and i'm happy.

Edirol PCR-50
The only thing i would add to this keyboard is better documentation (it really does suck as far as usefulness) i might be particular and add some weighted keys but that would raise the price substantially

Price paid

200

UTILIZATION

The controllers loaded easily and showed up instantly on my mac.... the faders and knobs are a nice feature because u can control the NN-XT in reason from the knobs on the console (delay, decay etc)

the keys have such a great feel (for not being weighted).... the fluidity of midi data transfered is like ur actually playing the instrument patch ur using

OVERALL OPINION

All in all for the price and for the trusted name (edirol is part of the Roland corp) and for the durability (i beat on the keys lol) its one of the best things i have bought for midi... i have nothing but good things to say
