Customer Reviews

OUTSTANDING!5 I bought the PCR-500 to use with Sonar 7 PE, and have had ZERO problems so far. The keyboard itself is very nice, both in quality and design. While this is my first controller keyboard, I have used a number of synths and basic portable polyphonic keyboards. I won't waste time spouting out features when it's far easier to just go to Roland's site and see the details. Suffice to day, the keyboard does what it's designed to. I just installed the drivers, set my midi in/out in Sonar, picked a softsynth, and was good to go. For me the PCR-500 was the perfect size for the space I have. If I had more room I'd of gone for the larger PCR-800, so keep space in mind when you choose a model to get. The PCR-300, 500, and 800 all have the same exact control surfaces and abilities, just a different number of actual keys. And honestly the number of keys doesn't matter because you can always change the octive up or down using either a set of buttons on the keyboard, or via your DAW application. What I like the best though... it's USB bus powered. Rock on!
