•
Do not force the unit’s power-supply cord to share
an outlet with an unreasonable number of other
devices. Be especially careful when using extension
cords—the total power used by all devices you
have connected to the extension cord’s outlet must
never exceed the power rating (watts/amperes) for
the extension cord. Excessive loads can cause the
insulation on the cord to heat up and eventually
melt through.

•
DO NOT play a CD-ROM disc on a conventional
audio CD player. The resulting sound may be of a
level that could cause permanent hearing loss.
Damage to speakers or other system components
may result.
101b
•
The unit and the AC adaptor should be located so
their location or position does not interfere with
their proper ventilation.
If used improperly, batteries may explode or leak
and cause damage or injury. In the interest of
safety, please read and observe the following
precautions.
1
• Carefully follow the installation instructions for
batteries, and make sure you observe the correct
polarity.
2
• Avoid using new batteries together with used
ones. In addition, avoid mixing different types
of batteries.
3
• Remove the batteries whenever the unit is to
remain unused for an extended period of time.
5
• If a battery has leaked, use a soft piece of cloth
or paper towel to wipe all remnants of the
discharge from the battery compartment. Then
install new batteries. To avoid inflammation of
the skin, make sure that none of the battery
discharge gets onto your hands or skin. Exercise
the utmost caution so that none of the discharge
gets near your eyes. Immediately rinse the
affected area with running water if any of the
discharge has entered the eyes.
................................................................................................
102d
•
Always grasp only the output plug or the body of
the AC adaptor when plugging into, or
unplugging from, this unit or an outlet.
................................................................................................
103b
•
At regular intervals, you should unplug the AC
adaptor and clean it by using a dry cloth to wipe
all dust and other accumulations away from its
prongs. Also, disconnect the power plug from the
power outlet whenever the unit is to remain
unused for an extended period of time. Any
accumulation of dust between the power plug and
the power outlet can result in poor insulation and
lead to fire.
6
• Never keep batteries together with metallic
objects such as ballpoint pens, necklaces,
hairpins, etc.
................................................................................................
112
•
................................................................................................
104
•
Try to prevent cords and cables from becoming
entangled. Also, all cords and cables should be
placed so they are out of the reach of children.
Used batteries must be disposed of in compliance
with whatever regulations for their safe disposal
that may be observed in the region in which you
live.

Important Notes
291a
In addition to the items listed under “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on page 2-3, please read and observe the following:
Power Supply
301
• Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is
being used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by
an inverter (such as a refrigerator, washing machine,
microwave oven, or air conditioner), or that contains a
motor. Depending on the way in which the electrical
appliance is used, power supply noise may cause this unit
to malfunction or may produce audible noise. If it is not
practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a power
supply noise filter between this unit and the electrical
outlet.
302
• The AC adaptor will begin to generate heat after long
hours of consecutive use. This is normal, and is not a cause
for concern.
303a
• The use of an AC adaptor is recommended as the unit’s
power consumption is relatively high. Should you prefer to
use batteries, please use the alkaline type.
304a
• When installing or replacing batteries, always turn off the
power on this unit and disconnect any other devices you
may have connected. This way, you can prevent
malfunction and/or damage to speakers or other devices.
307
• Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the
power to all units. This will help prevent malfunctions
and/or damage to speakers or other devices.
Placement
352a
• This device may interfere with radio and television
reception. Do not use this device in the vicinity of such
receivers.
352b
• Noise may be produced if wireless communications
devices, such as cell phones, are operated in the vicinity of
this unit. Such noise could occur when receiving or initiating a call, or while conversing. Should you experience
such problems, you should relocate such wireless devices
so they are at a greater distance from this unit, or switch
them off.
354a
• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near
devices that radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed
vehicle, or otherwise subject it to temperature extremes.
Excessive heat can deform or discolor the unit.
355b
• When moved from one location to another where the
temperature and/or humidity is very different, water
droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit. Damage
or malfunction may result if you attempt to use the unit in
this condition. Therefore, before using the unit, you must
allow it to stand for several hours, until the condensation
has completely evaporated.
358
• Do not allow objects to remain on top of the keyboard. This
can be the cause of malfunction, such as keys ceasing to
produce sound.

• For everyday cleaning wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth
or one that has been slightly dampened with water. To
remove stubborn dirt, use a cloth impregnated with a mild,
non-abrasive detergent. Afterwards, be sure to wipe the
unit thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth.
402
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any
kind, to avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.
Repairs and Data
452
• Please be aware that all data contained in the unit's
memory may be lost when the unit is sent for repairs.
Important data should always be written down on paper.
During repairs, due care is taken to avoid the loss of data.
However, in certain cases (such as when circuitry related to
memory itself is out of order), we regret that it may not be
possible to restore the data, and Roland assumes no
liability concerning such loss of data.

Additional Precautions
551
• Please be aware that the contents of memory can be
irretrievably lost as a result of a malfunction, or the
improper operation of the unit. To protect yourself against
the risk of losing important data, we recommend that you
periodically write down important data you have stored in
the unit's memory on paper.
552
• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents
of data that was stored in the unit’s memory once it has
been lost. Roland Corporation assumes no liability
concerning such loss of data.
553
• Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit’s
buttons, sliders, or other controls; and when using its jacks
and connectors. Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.
556
• When connecting / disconnecting all cables, grasp the
connector itself—never pull on the cable. This way you will
avoid causing shorts, or damage to the cable’s internal
elements.
558b
• To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the unit’s
volume at reasonable levels (especially when it is late at
night).
559a
• When you need to transport the unit, package it in the box
(including padding) that it came in, if possible. Otherwise,
you will need to use equivalent packaging materials.
561
• Use only the specified expression pedal (EV-5; sold
separately). By connecting any other expression pedals,
you risk causing malfunction and/or damage to the unit.
Handling CD-ROMs
801
• Avoid touching or scratching the shiny underside
(encoded surface) of the disc. Damaged or dirty CD-ROM
discs may not be read properly. Keep your discs clean
using a commercially available CD cleaner.

How to switch modes
PLAY mode
PLAY
■ What is PLAY mode?
This is the mode in which you play the PC-50.
In PLAY mode, playing the keyboard will transmit note messages to play the MIDI device.
In PLAY mode, you can play the keyboard to produce sound on a connected sound module, and
also use various other functions, such as operating the Pitch Bend/Modulation Lever to change the
pitch of the currently sounding note (Pitch Bend), adding vibrato (Modulation), or switching the
octave (Octave Shift).
In this mode you can also specify the MIDI transmit channel, and transmit program changes,
parameters, or start/stop messages.
■ To switch the PC-50 to PLAY mode...
When you turn on the power, the PC-50 will start up in PLAY mode.
fig.util
To switch the PC-50 to PLAY mode from UTILITY mode (p. 42), simultaneously
hold the [MIDI CH] button and [PGM CHANGE] button down or press the
[CANCEL] button.
• You are returned to PLAY mode once a setting or a process has been completed
within the UTILITY mode.
• You will also return to PLAY mode if you cancel an operation within UTILITY mode. In this
case, the setting you had been making will be discarded.

What is PLAY mode? (p. 41)
In PLAY mode, playing the keyboard will transmit note messages to play the connected MIDI
device.
In order to transmit MIDI messages from the PC-50, perform the following steps.
1 Set the MIDI channel the PC-50 will use to transmit to the same channel on the sound module
(software) is using to receive on.
Use MIDI Channel mode to set the MIDI transmit channel.
(➝ Setting the MIDI Transmit Channel (p. 45)).
2 Select a sound on your MIDI sound module.
(➝ Selecting Sounds on a Sound Module (p. 46)).
3 Once you have finished making settings, try playing the keyboard.
When you play the keyboard in PLAY mode, MIDI messages are sent to the sound module
(software).
* Since the PC-50 does not contain a sound generator, you cannot play MIDI data using the PC-50 alone.

range from -4 to 5 octaves. [OCTAVE -] or [OCTAVE +] will light according
to the current Octave Shift setting.If you simultaneously press [OCTAVE -]
and [OCTAVE +], the Octave Shift setting will be reset to 0, restoring the normal pitch range of the keyboard.
While playing the keyboard, move the Pitch Bend/Modulation Lever to
the left to lower the pitch of the currently selected patch, or to the right to
raise its pitch. This is known as pitch bend.
You can also apply vibrato by gently pressing the Modulation Controller.
This is known as modulation.
If you push the lever away from you and the same time move it to the right
or left, you can apply both effects at once.

Selecting Sounds on a Sound Module
—Transmitting Program Change / Bank Select Massages
To select a sound on your MIDI sound module, transmit a Program Change.
To select a sound from a different bank, first transmit a Bank Select message that switches the bank.
Then transmit a program change.
* You must transmit the Bank Select message before transmitting the Program Change message.
■ What is a bank?
MIDI sound modules organize their numerous sounds in various groups according to the category of
sound. These groups are called “banks.”
Program Change messages can only select sounds within the same bank, but by using these in
conjunction with Bank Select messages, you can select different variations of sound.
* The way in which sounds are organized will differ for each sound module. For details, refer to the owner’s
manual of the sound module you are using.

■Channel mode messages
■System realtime message
In addition to the channel mode messages that can be transmitted in Panic, the
PC-50 lets you assign any channel voice message to the VALUE encoder and
transmit it.
In addition to the Active Sensing messages that are transmitted constantly, the PC50 allows you to assign the following system realtime messages (other than Active
Sensing) to any controller and transmit them.

<Example4> What is the nibble-expressed value of decimal 1258?
●Decimal and Hexadecimal table
(An “H” is appended to the end of numbers in hexadecimal notation.)
In MIDI documentation, data values and addresses/sizes of Exclusive messages,
etc. are expressed as hexadecimal values for each 7 bits.
The following table shows how these correspond to decimal numbers.
1258 ÷ 16 = 78 (quotient) ... 10 (remainder)
78 ÷ 16 = 4 (quotient) ... 14 (remainder)
4 ÷ 16 = 0 (quotient) ... 4 (remainder)
From the preceding table, 0 = 00H, 4 = 04H, 14 = 0EH, 10 = 0HA.
Thus, the nibble-expressed value is
00 04 0E 0AH

The decimal expression of the MIDI channel, program change, etc., is one
greater than the decimal value shown in the table above.
*
The hexadecimal expression for each 7 bits allows a maximum of 128 steps (0-127) to be expressed by one byte of data. Multiple bytes are used if the data
requires greater resolution than this. For example, a value expressed by two 7bit bytes “aa” and “bbH” would be aa x 128 + bb.
*
In the case of signed (+/-) data, 00H = -64, 40H = +/-0, and 7FH = +63; i.e., a
value 64 less than the decimal value shown in the above table is used. In the
case of a two-byte value, 00 00H = -8192, 40 00 = +/-0, and 7F 7F = +8191. For
example, a value of “aa” and “bbH” would have a decimal expression of aa
bbH - 40 00H = aa x 128 + bb - 64 x 128.
*
In the case of data indicated as “use nibble data,” hexadecimal expression in 4bit units is used. A nibble-expressed value of the two bytes 0a and 0bH would
have a value of a x 16 + b.
<Example1>
What is the decimal expression of 5AH?
From the preceding table, 5AH = 90.
<Example2>
What is the decimal expression of the 7-bit hexadecimal value 12 34H?
From the preceding table, 12H = 18, and 34H = 52.
Thus, this is
18 x 128 + 52 = 2356
<Example3>
What is the decimal expression of the nibble-expressed value 0A 03 09 0D?
From the preceding table, 0AH = 10, 03H = 3, 09H = 9, and 0DH = 13.
Thus, this is
((10 x 16 + 3) x 16 + 9) x 16 + 13 = 41885
