    I do not re-turn caracs, see other reviews. I chose it for the right compromise between the 80 keys soft to the touch, many controllers for a featherweight. I put just a layer on the external pedal input, and for good practice.

    UTILIZATION

    Touch is excellent for this price range, and I have never found this as a master keyboard (tested M-Audio, Evolution, Novation). This is not the touch of a piano, or even an electronic piano weighted, but it's not plastic, not fake. No squeaks nide hard keys back to appuer or not.

    I used it to control a synth using soudfonts. I am very satisfied. e have always used USB, Windows 7 or Linux (Tango Studio, Ubuntu Studio), it is completely plug …

    I used it to control a synth using soudfonts. I am very satisfied. e have always used USB, Windows 7 or Linux (Tango Studio, Ubuntu Studio), it is completely plug & play without driver.

    The manual is sufficient.

    Config is not super obvious, but it is on the MIDI keyboard is necessarily a geek thing. The fact is that there are many possible settings, so many parameters and subtleties. Adjusting velocity curves is not the easiest, but I think you can not change it every four mornings. Otherwise, for assigning a controller to a MIDI and recording, it's pretty easy once you got the hang of hand. Other functions (choice of channel, octave, split ...) are easily accessible and well thought out.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used it for two years. I tested several models from M-Audio, Evolution, Novation, Alesis. The number of controllers, the overall quality of manufacture, so its strength, lightness and above all the quality of the keyboard to put me at the top of the basket in this price range. I saw a few negative opinions on longevity. I bought mine used and it is still like new. After that, sure, I trimballe very little and still in its bag, and with great care: it's fragile little creatures!

    The price / quality ratio is good.

    I give the keyboard because I do not have time, and I will focus solely on guitar and vocals. But if one day I have to get back to the keyboard, it is certainly among Edirol I go see, and certainly this model.

    UTILIZATION

    manual clear; the config with the "control map" is easy; the keyboard is to use that I actually (studio, not failed) but now for some months he starts a block cubase, the display shows anything and my router saturates noon.
    and here I discovered the origin of the problem "buttons": all the buttons are made in china, and you come saver buttons china are cheap but wear it functioned in moin moin.pour of the instent, if the value I is less than 124 afiche all going well, but more than 124 display indicates that the value changes all the temp.
    my keyboard was used in the studio and is covered if he hord service.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Without fault: 2-3 years
    I've never tested before (this is not my instrument, I'm guitarist)
    strong point: the map
    connections midi / usb
    PSU: usb or transformer
    Weakness: Made in China, ca says it all
    the buttons are excited, they are there but there scaffold not be used to not broken.
    the camera is very bad qualitée manufacturing and does not support the temp.
    be careful dear musicians, most of the manufacturers are ca for making money in defiance of the quality, not voi cella with the temp.
    "Reliability = absent boycote brand!" for my part I see irrai aillor ...

    Bought to replace an Edirol PCR-M50, too Coury (4 ocatves) for my use.
    Connected to the Mac via USB, and my old S80 connects via MIDI (diffrent corresponding port on the computer: top!)

    UTILIZATION

    Everything is simple and enjoyable on the keyboard.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Bought to replace an Edirol PCR-M50, which was only four octaves, this product s'avre trs satisfying: the feel was amlior and we can say it is perfect for this range Price (rponse excellent, excellent flexibility, comfort is short). The Controller is much higher (well CONTRL 9 sliders to the Hammond organ drawbars !!!), and the program is a thundering simplicity thanks the editor provided (Mac / PC).

    What characteristics have motivated your choice?
    -USB Keyboard Controller Edirol by Roland
    -5 Octaves
    -The pads, knobs, sliders
    The price-

    UTILIZATION

    - The touch keyboard is it fun? Should your use?
    Touch is pretty horrible! True piano refrain. For me, it suits me.
    This is the spring which is rather unpleasant. A by it the "plastic" is good and the velocity is there.

    - The general configuration is it simple
    Virtually nothing to do, connect the USB keyboard and hop (no need for power supply) ... The pads are still to be configured.

    - Manuel entirely in English, but quite clear.

    - Functions surprises:
    The dual keyboard, it's nice!

    The selector device is a pleasant surprise.
    The aftertouch

    - Damage ...
    the pads are not velocity sensitive.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have this keyboard for 48 hours, I am completely satisfied for the moment!
    I have not tested on Linux ... Feedback to come.

    -Conclusion
    Damage to the affected and non-pads, velocity sensitive. A default by these little USB master keyboard that is of excellent quality.

    Almost perfect at this price, you can go!

    Made in China = cheap, it's good to be a EUROPEN

    UTILIZATION

    - Great for touching her quick notes synth. For piano and rhodes sounds I bought a keyboard because the heavy touch edirol is not made for that tro (Fatar sl 990 = good heavy touch cheap, but no way to play the same note 2x faster unlike the edirol). Compared with other keyboards of the same type, nothing to see here enjoyable touch is felt, the feeling is not a plastic bullet 2 of the 1st prize.
    - If the pads that gadget, but pots of quality and prcis.
    - Notice incomprhensible for some function (j I bac in 5 info and I can read ..): still no way to use aftertouch (nothing happens even scrutinizing the afternoon wit…

    - Forget about whether to use Reason with its not working (see the above forums)
    Conclusion: good synth in terms of hardware but blah to all that is soft

    - I forgot: You have to buy the transformer cot if you want to use it without the power supply from USB (expanders), 30 euro I think, even when it's been two months of salary in India, thank you ings of edirol for computing circuits in order not to use an old transformer in conventional rutilisles ...).

    Ref. Internet manual. What motivated my choice, especially the number of controllers (some thirty faders, knobs, buttons, pad etc. ...) and the ability to manage different velocity curves because I had problems to overcome in VST. In short, it connects via USB so does not use a MIDI (it's always something gained).
    Connections are on the side, which is convenient in many cases. It can also import specific configurations of software or other MIDI devices.

    UTILIZATION

    Touch is quite sensational compared to what is now finally I think. A big cheer for this semi-weighted soft but firm. The keys are of good quality.

    For cons, the general configuration is not simple at all. Too few buttons config. There are two or three manipulations that I often do, I spend 30 "to one minute each time because you have to choose menus with a scroll wheel too sensitive and confirm the time. In short: It> click> system> confirmation system> choose No ...> configuration options> confirmation of the choice> back normal, it's too heavy for long. To say that I complained of configs Yamaha is much better here.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for several months.
    Just to touch, but I do it again this election just for this.
