Edirol recently announced the PCR-1, a new combo device that integrates a USB bus-powered 24-bit/96kHz audio interface into a 25-key MIDI keyboard controller.

The PCR-1 measures 1 and 3/16 inches thick, weighs less than three pounds and offers a wide variety of audio and MIDI features. The 25-key controller offers full 128-step velocity sensitivity and the same control map support as its larger PCR siblings. Controls can be assigned to send any MIDI message. It offers 16 onboard memory locations for saving control maps for software applications.

Audio features include stereo RCA input/outputs and a stereo mini headphone connection, which doubles as an optical digital S/PDIF port.

Additionally, Edirol has devised a new technology known as “S.L.I.M.” (Short-stroke Low-profile Impact Mechanism), which allows a compact MIDI keyboard to maintain reasonable playability.

The PCR-1 offers support for Mac and PC with WDM, ASIO and CoreAudio drivers.

The new device lists for $370 and will be available in February 2004.
