On the Fantom G you can progam transpose in the Address map.

But I don't know how to program it and if it can be programmed on a PCR-500.

Anyone out there willing to share these? I could sure use a hand-up. PCR and Fantom XR is a great combo, but lotsa work. IMO, Roland should be doing it, but hey.

yep, in fact they should have done a Control MAP for the XR, but first of all you need to know what can be MIDI controlled on the XR, and then decide what you want to control from your PCR.

I've never seen a Control MAP for a XR, but maybe some XR owner has one that can be useful for you.

The Most common things you can control from the PCR are (just to name a few):
- Part Volume (on a Performance)
- Modulation
- Portamento time
- Volume, Expression
- Balance, pan-pot
- Hold
- Sostenuto
- Legato
- TVF Resonance and cutoff
- Decay time
- Attack time
- Vibrato rate, depth and delay
- Program up/down (Patch or Performance)
- Favorite up/down (Patch or Performance)
- System Exclusive messages to control other features that are not controllable by norma CC values (you need to consult the MIDI Implementation charts Synth/Sequencer for that)

I hope you find an already made PCR MAP for XR
cheers

EDITED: Just found in the beginning of this Thread that there is at least one member of this clan using PCR-xxx control MAPS for the XR, he is: Graem

Hi all,

I have just purchased a Fantom XR and am looking to hook it up to my PCR-800. I notice that there were a couple of people who have created control maps and, if I am reading the post right, attached them to their posts. My problem seems to be that I cannot see any attachments/downloads on this site.

Could someone please clear up for me how to access the attachments.

Thanks!

Hi all, i am a newbie keyboardist and i use reason 5 on laptop and pcr800 for the jam sessions. I would like to learn any better way to transpose on my midi keyboard or short cuts to achieve that. This thread was very useful however i cannot fully understand about the programming, and i couldnt find any attachments above either. Can anybody help me a bit for that? Thanks heaps!

My answer is a bit late but maybe useful still...
The PCRs are perfect for transposing. Just assign a MIDI channel to the Gear you are controlling (upper, lower or both), and press - or + when playing. The controlled board will automatically transpose, if it accepts that MIDI command - Check its MIDI implementation chart to be sure.

I've set a limited Key transpose function to my PCR-500 in order to control my V-Synth and my Fantom.
The way I did it was by assigning SysEx (System Exclusive) messages to the B5, B6, B7 and B8 PAD buttons.
You could use how many as you want, for ex: B2 to B8, separated one semitone appart, so B5 will became your "Center tune =zero" and B4=-1, B3=-2, B2=-3, and on the + side, B6=+1, B7=+2, B8=+3 semitones. (Just an example).

Please refer to the attached file, which shows how to do that using the PCR Editor.

I can see that I failed to send you the procedure that evening back in April...
Do you still need it?

Hi there. Im a newbie with my PCR-500, and i would like to know how to use the control map of it with my laptop using sampletank.

How to control volume with my knobs/faders. How to map drums and other sound effetcs on pads. And many more. I have read all the replied post on this thread, but it seems like everything is all in advance. Im a basic newbie with PCR-500.

I currently switched from using triton Korg to fantomXA, and just recently bought my PCR-500.

I would like to use my PCR-500 a standalone keyboard with my windows laptop using Sampletank.

Please help me with this. I would greatly appreciate all your help for me.
