IMPORTANT NOTES
In addition to the items listed under “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on page 2 -3, please read and observe the
following:
that it may not be possible to restore the data, and Roland
assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.
Power Supply
•
•
•
Do not use this unit on the same power circuit with any
device that will generate line noise (such as an electric
motor or variable lighting system).
The AC adaptor will begin to generate heat after long hours
of consecutive use. This is normal, and is not a cause for
concern.
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
•
•
•
•
•
•
Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment
containing large power transformers) may induce hum. To
alleviate the problem, change the orientation of this unit; or
move it farther away from the source of interference.
This device may interfere with radio and television
reception. Do not use this device in the vicinity of such
receivers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Additional Precautions
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
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 loosing important data, we recommend that you
periodically save a backup copy of important data you
have stored in the unit’s memory in another MIDI device
(e.g., a sequencer).
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.
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.
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.
To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the unit’s
volume at reasonable levels. You may prefer to use
headphones, so you do not need to be concerned about
those around you (especially when it is late at night).
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.
Use only the specified expression pedal (EV-**; sold
separately). By connecting any other expression pedals, you
risk causing malfunction and/or damage to the unit.
Use a cable from Roland to make the connection. If using
some other make of connection cable, please note the
following precautions.
Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use cables
that incorporate resistors for connecting to this unit. The
use of such cables can cause the sound level to be extremely
low, or impossible to hear. For information on cable
specifications, contact the manufacturer of the cable.
Maintenance
Handling CD-ROMs
•
•
•
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.
Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any
kind, to avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or
deformation.
Repairs and Data
•
4
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 backed up in another
MIDI device (e.g., a sequencer), or written down on paper
(when possible). 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
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
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.

Getting Connected and Installing Drivers (Macintosh)
■ Installing the ASIO driver
You must install the PCR-A30 driver even if you will be using only audio on
the PCR-A30. Be sure to install the PCR-A30 driver before you install the
ASIO driver.
(➔ “Installing the PCR-A30 driver” (p. 27))
This section explains how to install the ASIO driver that allows the PCR-A30
to be used by your sequencer software or audio editing software.
For details on installation and settings of the ASIO driver, be sure to also read
the Driver E (Mac OS 9) - ReadmeE.htm document on the CD-ROM.
The PCR-A30 cannot play back audio data from the Macintosh’s sound
manager (such as audio CDs and alert sounds).
ASIO (Steinberg Audio
Stream In/Out Interface)
This is an audio interface
standard promoted by the
Steinberg Corporation.
When the PCR-A30 is used
with ASIO-compatible
software, the
synchronization precision
will be improved, allowing
a more sophisticated music
production environment.
The ASIO driver of the PCR-A30 supports the following audio input/output
channels.
• Audio input ........ 24/16 bit 1 stereo ch. (2 monaural chs.)
• Audio output ...... 24/16 bit 1 stereo ch. (2 monaural chs.)
Here we will explain how to install the ASIO 1.0 16 bit-compatible driver.
If your ASIO-compatible software supports ASIO 2.0 or recording/
playback of 24 bit audio data, using the following drivers will provide a
higher quality environment.

From the Driver E (Mac OS 9) - ASIO Driver folder of the CD-ROM, copy
[PCR-A ASIO1.0 16bit] to the ASIO Drivers folder of the ASIO-compatible
software you are using (e.g., Cubase VST, Logic Audio, Digital Performer,
Metro, or SPARK LE).
The Audio setting dialog
box will be named
differently depending on
your software. For details
refer to the manual of your
software.
Start up your ASIO-compatible software.
Open the Audio setting dialog box of your ASIO-compatible software, and
select [PCR-A ASIO1.0 16bit] as the ASIO Device.

Taking full advantage
● Adjusting the audio latency
You can change the driver settings to adjust the latency of the audio. To adjust the latency, change the
Buffer Size in the driver settings dialog box. Latency is the time delay from when an application plays
back audio data until the sound is actually heard from an audio device such as the PCR-A30.
1. As described in “Opening the driver settings dialog box” (p. 35), open the “Driver Settings”
dialog box.
2. Adjust the driver buffer size.
The following setting will produce the shortest latency.
Set “Buffer Size” to the far left (Min).
3. Click [OK] to close the driver settings dialog box.
4. Restart the application that is using the PCR-A30.
If you are using an application that has a function for testing audio devices, get it to perform its
tests.
5. Play back audio data on your application.
If interruptions occur in the sound, repeat this procedure, and gradually increase the buffer size
specified in step 2 until interruptions no longer occur.
* Depending on the application you are using, there may be a buffer size or latency adjustment function
among the audio settings of the application as well. For details, refer to the operation manual for your
application.
● Using ASIO Direct Monitor
If you are using the PCR-A30 from an ASIO 2.0 compatible application, the PCR-A30 can be controlled
from your ASIO 2.0 compatible application.
1. As described in Opening the driver settings dialog box, open the “Driver Settings” dialog box.
2. Make the following settings.
Check the “Use ASIO Direct Monitor” check box.
3. Click [OK] to close the driver settings dialog box.
* Depending on your application, there may also be an ASIO Direct Monitor setting among the audio settings
of your application. For details, refer to the operation manual for your application.
* When using ASIO Direct Monitor, monitoring may switch on/off at unexpected times, depending on the
application settings and on the recording procedure. If this occurs, uncheck the check box in step 2 to disable
ASIO Direct Monitor.
Opening the driver settings dialog box
Open the ASIO Control Panel from the Audio Settings dialog box of your ASIO-compatible
application. The name of the Audio Settings dialog box and the procedure for opening the ASIO
Control Panel will differ depending on your application. For details, refer to the operation manual
for your application.

Operation
The PCR-A30 is a controller that transmits MIDI messages. You cannot perform using only the
PCR-A30 by itself. You will need to connect it to a sound module or computer.
The various controllers ([R1–R8], [S1–S8], [B1–B6], [L1–L3], [P1, P2]) can be assigned almost any
message you want to get the control you need for your particular setup. For details on the
messages that can be assigned, refer to “Assign MIDI messages (EDIT)” (p. 53).

●MIDI Devices
MIDI OUT device
PCR-A MIDI OUT (Mac OS 9: PCR-A MIDI IN, OUT)
If you specify PCR-A MIDI OUT as the output port for your sequencer software, messages will be transmitted from the MIDI OUT connector of the PCR-A30 itself.
PCR-A (Mac OS 9: PCR-A 1)
Select this port if you want to send messages from your sequencer software to the PCRA30 itself.
MIDI IN device
PCR-A MIDI IN (Mac OS 9: PCR-A MIDI IN, OUT)
If you specify PCR-A MIDI IN as the input port for your sequencer software, messages
will be input from the PCR-A30’s MIDI IN connector.
PCR-A 1
PCR-A 2
Select one of these ports if you want messages from the controllers to be received by
your sequencer software. For each controller you can select the port that will be used.
You may find it convenient (for example) to use PCR-A 1 for messages to be recorded
on a track or used to control a software synthesizer, and PCR-A 2 for messages used to
play back/stop your sequencer or perform mixing.

Two MIDI ports
Some sequencer software that supports MIDI controllers lets you independently specify the
MIDI input port used for recording MIDI tracks (the “MIDI IN port”) and the MIDI input port
used to control the software (the “CTRL IN port”).

MIDI IN port
Normally, you will connect your MIDI keyboard to
the MIDI IN port, and use it for recording your
performance on tracks or using the MIDI Thru
function of your software to play sound modules or
soft synthesizers. The MIDI messages sent here have
the meaning that is assigned to them by the MIDI
specification. In other words, when you play the
keyboard, note messages will be transmitted and
recorded on the track, and the sound module that
receives these messages will produce sound.
MIDI OUT port
CTRL IN port
In contrast, the data received from the CTRL IN port
is used to operate your software in the same way as
data from your computer’s mouse or keyboard; it
will not be recorded on the tracks or “thru-ed” to
your sound module or soft synthesizer. The MIDI
messages sent here are interpreted in a completely
different way than defined in the MIDI specification.
For this reason, messages that are input from the
CTRL IN port are not normally “thru-ed” to your
sound module or soft synthesizer.
PCR-A30
For example, even if you play your keyboard to send a note-on message, the software that
receives this message will not produce a note; instead, it might interpret this message as
meaning that the PLAY/STOP button had been pressed.
* The actual operation that will occur will depend on the software you are using.
Sequencer software
fig.midi-port3.e
Since the same MIDI message can be interpreted in
completely different ways, as described above, the
software lets you specify the MIDI IN port and CTRL
IN port separately so that the two types can be

IN port, you can do things like using the fader and button operations to control mixer
operations in your software while using the knobs to edit your software synthesizer.
The output destination of the MIDI messages transmitted when you operate the PCR-A30’s
faders, knobs, and buttons can be specified separately for each controller. (➔“Assign MIDI

It is not necessary to connect the AC adaptor if
you are using a USB connection. However, with
some computers, the PCR-A30 may not operate
when powered from the USB bus. In this case,
set the power switch to the DC position and
connect the AC adaptor.
Play back audio data (e.g., .WAV data). You will hear the sound from the PCR-A30’s speakers (or
headphones, if you have connected headphones).
You will no longer hear sound from the internal speaker of your computer.
If the PCR-A30’s speaker function is turned off, the speaker will not produce sound.
( ➔“SPEAKER ON/OFF” (p. 85)
If the sampling frequency is set to 96 kHz REC, you will not hear the playback sound from your application
( ➔“USB AUDIO MODE SETTING” (p. 84))
Some connection cables contain a resistor. Do not use a cable with a built-in resistor to connect with the
PCR-A30. Doing so may make the sound extremely weak, or inaudible. Use the cable without a built-in
resistor (eg.,Roland PCS series).
Concerning use of the built-in speakers
Under certain conditions, you may find that the performance of the PCR-A30’s internal speakers
does not meet your expectations. For example, you may experience a poorer audio S/N ratio or
increased distortion.
If such problems occur, take the following measures:
-
Lower the master volume
-
Turn off the internal speakers (p. 85) (use headphones)
-
Connect the AC adaptor and set the power switch to the DC position
To prevent malfunction and/or damage to speakers or other devices, always turn down the
volume, and turn off the power on all devices before making any connections.
The PCR-A30 is not equipped with its own MIDI sound generator. This means that MIDI data
from your computer cannot be played by the PCR-A30

If you want to use the PCR-A30 as a MIDI keyboard, don’t connect the USB cable. While you
have a USB cable connected, MIDI messages won’t be transmitted from the PCR-A30’s MIDI
OUT connector when you play its keyboard (see “MIDI flow” (p. 37)).
(If you want to use the PCR-A30 as a MIDI keyboard with the USB cable connected, you’ll
need to make settings on your computer so that the MIDI messages are “soft thru-ed.”)
Use the following procedure when you want to play a MIDI sound module connected to the
PCR-A30.
1
Set the MIDI channel the PCR-A30 will use to transmit to the same channel on the module is
using to receive on.
Use MIDI Channel mode to set the MIDI transmit channel.
(➔“MIDI Channel mode (MIDI CH)” (p. 46)).
2
Select a sound on your MIDI sound module.
(➔“Selecting Sounds on a Sound Module (Sending Program Change / Bank Select

3
Once you have finished making settings, try playing the keyboard in “PLAY mode” (p. 44).
When you play the keyboard in PLAY mode, MIDI messages are sent to the MIDI sound
module you have connected, causing it to produce sound.
* Since the PCR-A30 does not contain a sound generator, you cannot play MIDI data using the PCR-A30
alone.

● PLAY mode
When you power up the PCR-A30, it will start up in PLAY mode.
In PLAY mode, playing the keyboard will transmit note messages to play the connected MIDI device.
The display will show the current channel (p. 46).
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 bender lever to change the pitch of the currently
sounding note (Pitch Bend), adding vibrato (Modulation), or switching the octave (Octave Shift).

changing the sound in real time (usually by adding a vibrato effect).
* The change obtained with this massage will very depending on the setting for your
sound module (the section which handles modulation), or the Tone selected.
If a pedal switch or foot switch (one from the DP series or BOSS FS-5U; sold
separately) is connected to the rear panel HOLD jack, you can press the foot
switch to make notes continue sounding even after you remove your hand from
the keyboard (the Hold function). This will transmit the MIDI message Hold 1
(CC#64). The Hold On message (data 127) is transmitted when you press the
pedal, and Hold Off (data 0) when you release the pedal. (➝*1)
If an expression pedal (EV-5; sold separately) is connected to the rear panel
EXPRESSION jack, you can use the pedal to control the volume or tone. (➝*2)
You can press [OCTAVE -] or [OCTAVE +] to raise or lower the pitch range of
the keyboard (the Octave Shift function). This lets you play a wider range of
notes than would normally be accessible from the 32 keys.
Press [OCTAVE -] once to lower the pitch range one octave. Press it once again
to lower the range an additional octave. Permissible settings for this 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.
You can press [TRANSPOSE]+[OCTAVE +] or [TRANSPOSE]+[OCTAVE -] to
transpose the keyboard in semitone steps (the Transpose function).
You can transpose the pitch in a range of -12–12 (semitones).
* If you press and hold [TRANSPOSE], [OCTAVE -] or [OCTAVE +] will light
according to the current Transpose setting.
* If you hold down [TRANSPOSE] and simultaneously press [OCTAVE -] and
[OCTAVE +], the Transpose setting will be reset to 0.

While playing the keyboard, move the 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 pushing the lever away from you. 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.
To switch the PCR-A30 to PLAY mode...
The PCR-A30 will automatically start up in PLAY mode when you turn on the power.
To return to PLAY mode from another mode (“Table of operating modes” (p. 45)), press the

Setting the MIDI Transmit Channel
To control the sound module, set the MIDI channel the PCR-A30 will use to transmit on to the same
channel the modules is using to receive on.
Use MIDI Channel mode to set the MIDI transmit channel.
● MIDI Channel mode (MIDI CH)
This mode lets you set the transmission channel (current channel) of the keyboard and bender
lever.
Each controller has its own independent transmission channel setting. However, if OMNI mode (p.
47) is on, the controllers will also transmit on the current channel you specify here.

Selecting Sounds on a Sound Module
(Sending Program Change / Bank Select Massages)
To select a sound on your MIDI sound module, transmit a Program Change in Program Change
mode.
To select a sound from a different bank, first use Bank mode to transmit a Bank Select message that
switches the bank. Then transmit a program change.
* You must send the Bank Select message before sending 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.
● Program Change Mode (PROGRAM CHANGE)
This mode lets you transmit a program change message on the current channel.

It may take about 15 seconds (or more) after the USB cable is connected for the PCR-A30 to be detected.
Is the USB cable connected correctly?
Make sure that the PCR-A30 and your computer are correctly connected via a USB cable.
Is USB enabled on your computer?
Refer to the operation manual for your computer, and make sure that USB is enabled.
Does your computer or USB hub have sufficient power supply capacity?
The PCR-A30 cannot be connected if insufficient power is supplied to it. Check whether one of the following cases
apply.
- If you are using the PCR-A30 with a notebook computer that is running on its battery, operation may be
unreliable with some models of computer. If this is the case, connect the AC adaptor to your notebook computer.
- The power conservation mode of your computer may limit the power that is supplied to USB. Check the
settings of your computer.
- In some cases, the PCR-A30 cannot be used with a bus-powered hub (a hub that does not contain a power
supply). Please use a self-powered hub (a hub that contains a power supply).

are installed when a computer is shipped.
Please contact the manufacturer of your computer.
Does your computer meet the USB specifications?
If you are using a computer that does not fulfill the electrical requirements of the USB specifications, operation may
be unstable. In this case, you may be able to solve the problem by connecting a USB hub.
If the above actions do not solve the problem, it is possible that the PCR-A30 has been incorrectly detected by the
computer. Please reinstall the driver from the beginning of the procedure. (➔“Getting Connected and Installing
Drivers (Windows)” (p. 12))
fig.win
“Found unknown device” appears even though you installed the driver
If your computer or USB hub has two or more USB connectors, and you connect the PCR-A30 to a USB connector
to which the PCR-A30 has never been connected before, the “Unknown device” dialog box may appear even on a
computer onto which you have already installed the driver.
Refer to “Installing the driver” (p. 12), and install the driver once again. This is not a malfunction.
If the “Found unknown device” dialog box appears even though the PCR-A30 is connected to the same USB
connector as before, it is possible that the computer has detected the PCR-A30 incorrectly. Please reinstall the driver
from the beginning of the procedure. (“Installing the driver” (p. 12))

Noise is heard during audio playback
In some cases, you may also be able to solve this problem by grounding the chassis of your computer, or the
grounding connector of the AC power supply plug of your computer. In addition, you can check whether any
devices that produce a strong magnetic field are located nearby, such as a television or microwave oven.
Is a mic or guitar still connected?
If a mic or guitar is connected to the PCR-A30, disconnect the mic or guitar, and turn the Gain knob all the way
to the left.Disconnect any audio devices you are not using.
Are two or more audio devices such as the PCR-A30 or a mixer connected to your computer?
Try connecting only a single PCR-A30 unit, and check whether the noise disappears. If numerous audio devices
are connected to a computer, noise may occur depending on your system. In such cases, connect only the PCRA30 to your computer.

<Example1>
Bulk dump allows a large amount of data to be transferred in a single operation.
For example, this can be used to store all settings of a device into a computer or
sequencer.
On the PCR-A30, a bulk dump will be transmitted when you execute the Bulk
mode operation BULK TX. The bulk dump is transmitted as several exclusive
messages.
What is the decimal expression of 5AH?
From the preceding table, 5AH = 90.

* You must leave an interval of at least 40 ms between each exclusive message.
* In the case of ALL BULK, the contents of memories 1--F will be transmitted as
the current memory, consecutively from memory 1 through memory F. After
transmitting one set of bulk dump data, you must leave an interval of at least
500 ms.
* Please be aware that if you modify the data dumped from the PCR-A30 by
changing the order in which the exclusive messages are transmitted, by
inserting other messages between the system exclusive messages, or by
speeding up the timing of the transmission, the data may not be set correctly
when the PCR-A30 receives it.

*
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.
104
<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
<Example4> What is the nibble-expressed value of decimal 1258?
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
●Example of an actual MIDI message
<Example1> CE 04
CnH is the Program Change status. “n” is the MIDI channel number. EH = 14, and
04H = 04. Thus, this is a program change message on MIDI channel 15, for program
number 05.
●Checksum calculation
In order to verify that the message was received correctly, Roland exclusive
messages (RQ1, DT1) add a checksum following the end of the data (before the F7).
The checksum value is determined by the address and data (or size) of the
exclusive message that is transmitted.
❍Calculating the checksum
(“H” has been added following hexadecimal values)
The checksum is a value that results in a lower 7 bits of 0 when the address, size,
and checksum itself are added together.
Specifically, the calculation will be as follows when the exclusive message you
want to transmit has an address of aa bb ccH and data or size of dd ee ffH.
aa + bb + cc + dd + ee + ff = total
total ÷ 128 = quotient ... remainder
128 - remainder = checksum
*
However, as an exception, the checksum for a remainder of 0 is not 80H but
rather 00H.
