Edirol used the Musikmesse show to announce two new USB MIDI keyboard controllers, the PC-50 (49-note) and PC-80 (61-note). Both the PC-50 and PC-80 models use the same keyboard mechanism found in Edirol's PCR-M series of USB keyboards, offering low mechanical noise and 12 selectable velocity curves.

The PC-50 is a true "use anywhere" MIDI keyboard that can instantly be powered via USB as well as battery (4xAA) or an optional AC adaptor. All connections are mounted on the left side panel making the keyboard fit easily in front of a computer monitor or where space is constrained. Suggested retail price is $185.

The PC-80 is equipped with a built-in USB Audio Interface and a speaker system for a complete audio & MIDI solution, making it ideal for the education market. By offering 24-bit/96kHz USB Audio capability, low-latency driver support for Core Audio, WDM, ASIO 2.0 and OS standard drivers, and onboard 2W+2W stereo powered speakers, the PC-80 and your computer is all you need to practice and to create music. To complete the package a GM2 software synthesizer, developed with genuine Roland sounds, is also included. Key-splitting and Layering in the PC-80 offers an easy way to play multiple instruments on different sections of the keyboard. A dedicated "Software Synthesizer" button on the PC-80 allows you to instantly call it up on your computer screen where you can start playing immediately. Suggested retail price for the PC-80 is $495.
