Simple-is-the-Best Keyboards ―Quick Access to the Best Quality in Its Class
The PC-50 is a 49 key, full-sized, simple MIDI keyboard controller in the smallest body of EDIROL’s keyboard line. It also has the portable, desktop-space-saving design.
High Quality Mechanism for the Serious Player
With a newly designed key mechanism -taken from Roland’s 30 years of synthesizer development – players can control a wide dynamic range with incredible subtlety. The re-designed key assemblies have a rounded shape for better reaction to the player’s touch and more comfortable glissando, plus changes have already been made to reduce the low mechanical noise of the PC-50 and eliminate vertical shake on the key strokes. The newly developed pitch bend and modulation design offers you easier and more expressive control. All these features add up to a keyboard that even the most discerning player can appreciate.
Twelve Selectable Velocity Curve Combinations
Pick from 12 velocity curves to precisely match your playing style. As the PC-50 has 4 different velocity curves and 3 kinds of sensitivity (Light, Medium, and Heavy), the player can find the combination that perfectly suits them and can produce the precise MIDI performance and programming of a true professional. In addition a Fixed Velocity Mode is provided where the PC-50 always outputs a fixed velocity (from 1 to 127) providing practical input for drum and percussion programming in step recording.
Side Panel Connections for Streamlined Routing
The rear panel of the keyboard is clean of connections so that you can easily have a computer monitor or laptop behind the keyboard – in the ideal position – especially for educational users. All connections are located on the side – USB, MIDI OUT plus separate Hold and Expression pedal ports.
3 Digit 7-segment LED and Rotary Encoder
The MIDI control function on the PC-50 is via a rotary encoder. Both easier and faster control than using the notes for numerical values. With this knob you can set up MIDI channel, Program Change, Control Change and more and instantly see the values on the LED.
FPT Low-latency MIDI Transmission
The MIDI processing in the PC-50 is compatible with FPT (Fast Processing Technology of MIDI transmission). This technology doesn’t depend on music application you are using. It realizes stable, high speed, low latency, and low jitter MIDI transmission.
