Edirol PCR-A30
Touch excellent, enjoyable knobs, faders enjoyable, pramp Intgr sound card embeds: ideal for a mobile station complete with laptop. Sustain pedals. usb connector

UTILIZATION

EXCELLENT touch and it works well. the config is not the look too complicated. c Drout is a bit-level MIDI editor. no manual in french! a shame. otherwise the English manual al looked ok but a bit repetitive and confusing.
A less for rotary knobs that are not endless. So when one takes a sequence set to a SAUT hello. I think of other surfaces such as the Behringer BCR or the UC33 have better suited the thing.

OVERALL OPINION

2 months. most: quality gnral. the least: in connection usb1 only. t usb2 would probably faster. the same asio1 only. ASIO2 t would probably be more efficient. implementation date?
report qualitative unbeatable price I think: the Novation remote audio 2fois more for the same "features". pTis of apps or plugins available t would be welcome but good considering the price c is OK.
the handling of plugins with the faders and knobs n is not always complete. Ceratina No knobs have no action.
for setting MIDI editor with s must hang! not very intuitive. I am not my harnessed. but hey it must be feasible with a lot of time. for the pro's got to be a child's game of course.

Cortobass's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Edirol PCR-A30
Hard to beat on paper for a three-in-one:
- Digital Audio Interface 24-bit 96 kHz (full duplex at 44 and 48 kHz) with very low latency;
- A master MIDI keyboard to 32 keys with pitch bend wheel and modulation;
- A control surface with knobs and faders assignable + storing configs;
- Kind of connection: RCA stereo outputs, stereo jack with gain 6.35, digital output, MIDI I / O, headphone jack 6.35, taken to Hold and Expression pedal;
- Built-in speakers;
- Powered by USB or by transformer (included).

UTILIZATION

The keyboard is very pleasant to use. Despite the low price, the keys are of good quality.
The audio is impeccable. Not a breath side with a gain set correctly. No problem of power and good sound reproduction (except with the integrated speakers which are also zero as laptop speakers). I have not tried to connect a guitar or a microphone on it (I spend either a DI or a preamp, so I use the line input).
Latency is ridiculous (3.3 ms) and imperceptible both midi in audio. The drivers are very stable on XP Pro. There is a direct monitoring software and hardware.
The software provided, PCR Editor, facilitates the assignment of control and it does not take long, unless you are a neophyte, to drive her and VSTi soft from the PCR-A30.
I do not put a score of 9 because the manual is not provided in French, the software bundle is non-existent and lacks controls endless.

OVERALL OPINION

Compared to competing products in the same price (Ozone, Neon, Photon X25), it offers a larger keyboard, which is essential if you want a low left hand (but hey, 32 keys, it's still a fair bit ) and a digital output. However, it does not have XLR (but I do not recommend any way to connect microphones to the weaklings preamps found on this type of product).

This product is amazing for the price. To buy without hesitation.

Edirol PCR-A30
- What technical specifications motivated your choice?

Audio + MIDI controllers plus all located on the keyboard. Like that wherever I am wondering with this keyboard I have the ASIO and a controller device that works on any PC

UTILIZATION

- The touch keyboard is it enjoyable? Should you use?

Yes, an octave higher than on my old Oxygen8, and frankly is much better touch on the Edirtol

- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?

Well then the actually, I do not really read the manual, and perhaps should be, not everything is intuitive to configure .... audio is not necessarily obvious as monitoring directly on the keyboard, not a soft .... But it is not insurmountable either.

- The select MIDI channels, patches is easy?

with respect to the south, it is very clear, a joy to learn all the buttons in Fruity Loops Midi.

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

Trs full, I'm just pretending to be an anger properly, but every time I looked for info, I immediately found.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?

1 year

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?

All controllers rested and I hang supplmentaire octave, the audio config via the keyboard less ...

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

I had the Evolution (when I was lil) FATAR a big (but it's the packon had given me and it does not play in the same short anyway), the Doepfer and M-AUDIO ... Well it's still the same Edirol that satisfies me the most in its compromises and features.

- How do you report qualitprix?

Bought used on AudioFanzine the price of the argus (220th the era I think), trs satisfauit investment.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...

yes definitely.
