pc200ii

The PC-200 MK II is a small, plastic, four-octave keyboard with velocity sensing (but no aftertouch) and the usual Roland pitch-lever which combines pitchbend and modulation control. There is also a programmable data entry fader, and the unit can send bank select and program changes. The unit is aimed at the home market, since it's that typical "home computer" beige colour.

The keyboard works well enough, although the key travel is rather shallow and the velocity curve lacks resolution, which is a drawback. There are better quality keyboards on the market, but this one is a cheap and reasonably effective package for four octaves' worth of keys.
