    Great Organ Pedals!!!

    By Papadon Washington

    from Ogdensburg NY (USA)

    Comments about Roland PK-5A Dynamic Foot Pedal and MIDI Controller:

    I bought the PK-5A to use with my XK1 organ. They are very sturdy, easy to operate, simple to set up and fun to play. The manual is quite good and the controls make sense.

    I have played around with some of the other functions (polyphony, drums, etc. but honetsly, I only need them as bass pedals and they are great bass pedals.

    Free would be better, but you have to pay for quality.

    A must get for Rush enspired players!

    By SlappaDaBassMon2112

    from Canada, Ontario

    Comments about Roland PK-5A Dynamic Foot Pedal and MIDI Controller:

    I have had these pedals for only about 2 hours now and I already know enough of how to use them for a gig already! They are extremely easy to use if you simply want to play MIDI out of a keyboard and play single noted stuff. I was influenced by Rush's Geddy Lee and his use of Synth Bass Pedals so if you are like me and want to use these pedals for something like that they are perfect! The only flaw I can see so far is the price they are fairly expensive. But way worth it!

    Foot pedal controller - PK-5A

    By Techguy

    from N/A

    Comments about Roland PK-5A Dynamic Foot Pedal and MIDI Controller:

    This is a very well made and well designed product. It is easy to figure out and the ability to integrate this into your performance depends on the dexterity of your feet. This seems to work nicely if you are a solo guitarist and want a bass type accompaniment (add a drum machine and you've got your one man band); it allows the freedom to create arrangements that can be full sounding but have a dynamic element to it..ie.don't have to be sequenced. Also good with organ / organ bass splits. Two things that this product could improve this pedal is: 1) have some user lock feature so when used in performance you can't accidently change the performance mode 2) allow transposition feature to work in both the mono and poly modes.

    Excellent footpedal device

    By Rickenbacker Rocker

    from Dallas, TX

    Comments about Roland PK-5A Dynamic Foot Pedal and MIDI Controller:

    I use the PK5A to trigger loops to a SP404. I wish that the MIDI documentation was longer, more in depth, and provided more examples. That being said I figured out how to trigger samples as well as drive a selected sound when hooked up to a processor.

    Add a musician to your band

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Roland PK-5A Dynamic Foot Pedal and MIDI Controller:

    This set of pedals will fill in the sound without adding another member to your band. It's great when you need to add some background sounds or any one note at a time keyboard lines. Rush uses this technique live so that a 3-piece band sounds like 5 or 6! Add a sequencer and a sampler and you will be unstoppable! This unit is great for guitarists, bass players or keyboard players.The PK-5 is very easy to hook up and use. You can change midi channels quickly between or even during a song. The hold feature is a nice bonus that lets you hold a note indefinitley while you free up your foot. There are no built-in sounds, but you can add any midi sound module to suit your needs.

    Sweet pedals

    By Busy Bass Player

    from phoenix,az

    Comments about Roland PK-5A Dynamic Foot Pedal and MIDI Controller:

    I have used this to add synth parts to many songs while I play bass. I use this mostly with keyboards, but I would guess that it works well with midi bass. The unit is built really well, and I have not had any problems with it. Overall I am very happy with the unit and the extra options that it has makes it a shoe in over other units for me.

    Two hands, two feet

    By luaP

    from st. louis, MO

    Comments about Roland PK-5A Dynamic Foot Pedal and MIDI Controller:

    I play bass, keys and a dozen other instruments in my band, but the PK-5 is always busy under my feet. Sometimes I sit down and play doublestops and melodies, drums, plus deep MIDI triggered synth bass, With my Moog Taurus pedals too, nobody can tell where all these sounds are coming from onstage!

    Great buy for the multi-instrumentalist

    By MikeRS562

    from Clinton, MA

    Comments about Roland PK-5A Dynamic Foot Pedal and MIDI Controller:

    I got this pedal set from my bass teacher for *** dollars (why my value is so high, and they're a little beaten up that's why a 9 for quality). As a bassist and pianist/synth player I needed a way to play both at once, esspecially when covering Rush. I can get so many features out of these and using my Roland XP-10 synth. The drum set on it is somewhat limited but it's great to write a drumline with.
