Immediately turn the power off, remove the AC
adaptor from the outlet, and request servicing by
your retailer, the nearest Roland Service Center, or an
authorized Roland distributor, as listed on the “Information” page when:
• The AC adaptor, the power-supply cord, or the plug
has been damaged; or
• If smoke or unusual odor occurs
• Objects have fallen into, or liquid has been spilled onto

•
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.

Important Notes
291a
In addition to the items listed under “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on page 3, please read and observe the following:
Power Supply
Maintenance
301
401a
• 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.
• 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.
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.
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
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
(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
that it may not be possible to restore the data, and Roland
assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.
351
• 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.
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

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 loosing important data, we recommend that you
periodically save a backup copy of 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.
554
• Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.
555
• A small amount of noise may be heard from the display
during normal operation.
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.
558a
• 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).

Important Notes
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 (Roland EV-5; sold
separately). By connecting any other expression pedals,
you risk causing malfunction and/or damage to the unit.
562
• 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.
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.

12 Grounding Terminal
Depending on the circumstances of a particular setup, you may experience a discomforting sensation,
or perceive that the surface feels gritty to the touch when you touch this device, microphones
connected to it, or the metal portions of other objects, such as guitars. This is due to an infinitesimal
electrical charge, which is absolutely harmless. However, if you are concerned about this, connect the
ground terminal (see figure) with an external ground. When the unit is grounded, a slight hum may
occur, depending on the particulars of your installation. If you are unsure of the connection method,
contact the nearest Roland Service Center, or an authorized Roland distributor, as listed on the
“Information” page.
Unsuitable places for connection
• Water pipes (may result in shock or electrocution)
• Gas pipes (may result in fire or explosion)
• Telephone-line ground or lightning rod (may be dangerous in the event of lightning)
* You must make the ground connection using the screw that came with the PC-80.

What is the PC-80 software synthesizer?
The PC-80 software synthesizer is a software synthesizer with a high-quality
synthesizer engine and effects. It provides General MIDI level 2 (GM2)
compatible sounds, and can be played directly from the PC-80’s keyboard or
used in a sophisticated music production system.
■ How the PC-80 software synthesizer is structured
The PC-80 software synthesizer consists of a Synth that you can play
manually from the PC-80’s keyboard, and a Player that can play back SMF
data or be played from external software.

■Convenient functions for performance
When you move the pitch bend/modulation level to the left or right,
Pitch Bend messages will be transmitted, creating slight variations in the
Changing the pitch (Pitch Bend) pitch of the sounds that are playing.
* The range of the change (bend range) can be adjusted on the sound generator.
When you push the pitch bend/modulation level away from yourself,
Modulation messages (CC#01) will be transmitted, and vibrato will be

applied to the sound.
(Modulation)
* The way in which the sound changes can be specified on the sound generator.
If you connect a pedal switch or foot switch (DP series pedal or Boss FS5U; available separately) to the rear panel HOLD jack, notes will be held
as long as you are pressing the pedal, even after you take your finger off
Sustaining the notes (Hold)
of the key. This transmits the MIDI message Hold 1 (CC#64). Hold On
(127) is transmitted when you press the pedal, and Hold Off (0) when you
release the pedal.
If you connect an expression pedal (Roland EV-5; available separately) to
Controlling the tone or volume in
the rear panel EXPRESSION jack, you can use the pedal to control the
real time (Expression)
volume or tone.
You can use the [OCTAVE-] [OCTAVE+] buttons to shift the pitch of the
keyboard upward or downward (Octave Shift).
Pressing [OCTAVE-] once will lower the pitch by one octave. Press it
Switching the octave
again to lower the pitch by an additional octave. The pitch can be
(Octave Shift)
adjusted within the range of -4 through 5 octaves. [OCTAVE-] or
[OCTAVE+] will light according to the current octave shift setting. If you
press [OCTAVE-] and [OCTAVE+] simultaneously, the Octave Shift
setting will be reset to 0, returning the keyboard to its normal pitch range.
* MIDI messages are transmitted on the channel according to the current keyboard
mode setting (Lower/Upper/Split).

PLAY
■ What is PLAY mode?
This is the mode in which you play the PC-80.
When you play the keyboard, note messages will be transmitted, causing a connected MIDI
device to produce sound.
In addition to playing the keyboard to produce sound on a connected sound module, Play
mode also lets you use the pitch bend/modulation lever to change the pitch of the sound (Pitch
Bend) or apply vibrato (Modulation), and also to switch octaves (Octave Shift).
In addition, you can change the MIDI transmit channel, send program change messages,
transmit specific parameters, or transmit start/stop messages.
■ To enter Play mode
The PC-80 will automatically be in Play mode when you turn on its power.
To switch from Utility mode (p. 61) to Play mode, simultaneously hold down the MIDI CH
button and PGM CHANGE button for a few moments, or press the CANCEL button.

Selecting sounds—Transmitting Program Change and Bank Select Massages
You can select sounds on your MIDI sound module by transmitting Program Change messages
to it. If you want to select a sound from a different bank, first transmit a Bank Select message to
switch banks. Then transmit a Program Change message.
* You must transmit the Bank Select message before the Program Change message.
What are banks?
MIDI sound modules organize their numerous sounds into groups called “banks.”
Program Change messages select sounds only within the same bank. However, by using Bank
Select messages in conjunction with Program Change messages, you can access a much larger
range of sounds.
* The way in which sounds are organized will depend on the sound module. For details, refer to the owner’s
manual for your sound module.

Connections
The sound of the device connected to INPUT L (MONO) will be recorded in your computer on
the L channel, and the sound of the device connected to INPUT R will be recorded on the R
channel. If you connect only one of these, it will be recorded in monaural on your computer.
(The same sound will be recorded on the L channel and R channel.)
* Don’t connect anything to an input jack you’re not using.
Howling could be produced depending on the location of microphones relative to speakers.
This can be remedied by:
• Changing the orientation of the microphone(s).
• Relocating microphone(s) at a greater distance from speakers.
• Lowering volume levels.
Input Mode setting
Select either LINE, GUITAR, or MIC as appropriate for the device you’ve connected to the
audio input jacks.
(➔ “Setting the Input Mode” (p. 83))
Sample Rate setting
Select the same sample rate as is selected in your recording software.
(➔ “SAMPLE RATE SETTING” (p. 85))
* f you change the sample rate on the PC-80, you’ll need to switch it off, then switch it back on again in
order for the new setting to take effect.
Input level knob
Use the Input Level Knob (LEVEL) (p. 13) to adjust the input level appropriately for the input
device you’ve connected. Use your software to check the input level.
Direct Monitor button
Use this to switch the Direct Monitor function on/off.
If Direct Monitor is on, the input signal from the audio input jacks will be output from the PC80’s speakers, headphone jack, and master output jacks.
* This cannot be controlled from ASIO 2.0 compatible software such as Cubase.
Master volume knob
If Direct Monitor is on, this adjusts the monitor level.
* Adjusting the monitor level won’t change the recording level.

Noise may be entering via the line inputs or mic inputs.
If a MIDI sound module with a USB connector is connected via USB to the same computer as the PC-80, and
the output of the MIDI sound module is connected to the input jacks of the PC-80, noise from the computer may
be heard via the MIDI sound module from the PC-80. In this case, you can either connect the MIDI sound
module and PC-80 in parallel via a self-powered hub, or connect the MIDI sound module in series or via a MIDI
interface.
Could audio data monitoring be turned on?
If your sequencer software has a function that allows the monitoring of audio data during recording and you
have it turned on, an audio data loop may occur, so that recording cannot occur correctly.
Turn audio data monitoring off during recording.
For details on this setting, refer to the owner’s manual for the software you’re using.
Playback/recording stops midway, and subsequent playback/recording is not
possible
While you were using the PC-80, could your computer have performed a task

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 7-bit
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.
<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
