The PCR-50 definitely surpasses the other MIDI Controllers with the added knobs and sliders. The fact that it is pretty much "fully" assignable is fantastic. And that for many major Sequencers, it has memory presets already by factory default. I am quite happy that I found this controller. It saves me allot of up and down in the studio, and saves headaches.
If the budget is low and you're no pianist this is the controller for you. Solid construction, the keys have a great feel to them (well...as good as a synth can feel) and it's extremely easy to use.I've had TONS of problems with my M-Audio Mobilepre sound card due to a USB conflict with my NIC card but the PCR-50 has been completely unaffected.I'm considering replacing my Mobilepre with the Edirol UA-25 due to my experience with this phenomenal midi controller.
For the price, this MIDI controller /keyboard is a steal. I use Cubase and the preset in the PCR-50 works well and you can start using the keyboard to make music without mapping out your own settings. The manual is pretty good at explaining the functions so if you want to fool around programming it, you can. It works for me.
I did a lot of research on controllers before I purchased one. It came down to the Oxygen 8 and the PCR-50. Not only does this controller have a load of assignable knobs, but it has memory presets, which none of the M-Audio models have. This means you can save what you set your channels to be and recall them. It also comes with software to set the channels so you don't have to do it on the keyboard. If you want a versatile controler, this is the way to go.
