Edirol Roland PCR500 works in Windows 10

I plugged  in my PCR and it worked, I didn't do anything with settings or drivers or anything at all. I just thought I would pass that on. I know there are a bunch of PCR users out there. Cakewalk Roland VS-20 still doesn't though.

It's Bass, not Bass.

Amazing... Didn't work for PCR-300...
 
I'm wondering if a more recent Windows 10 update has fixed the problem... I'll give it a whirl

And still didn't work... No matter what I do.
 
Ah well... I thought, for a minute there, that I could bring my little PCR-300 out of retirement.
 
I must admit, however, that I'm enjoying getting my MIDI keyboards (JP-8000 and OB-12) back into action after over ten years of them gathering dust in a corner.
 
Every cloud has a silver lining, I believe

Pretty old silver linings. If a piece of gear works it's worth is what it would cost to replace it no matter how old. Wish I could tell you why the PCR is working.

Did you update from Win 7 or 8 to Win 10? If so that may be why it's working. The driver was already installed.
 
I have officially sworn to not ever purchase Roland or Edirol "Pro" audio gear again.

Yeah, it was an update from 8.1. Didn't work for a few day then it it did. Prob be a different story if I do a clean reinstall of Win 10. I'm with you. PCR controllers are not that old and the VS-20 even newer but no drivers. I won't buy another Roland product.

I thought the same, but the OCTA-CAPTURE, which I bought at the beginning of the week, suits my latest needs so perfectly.
 
Fortunately, it is completely "plug'n'play..." No drivers needed (for now).

The no drivers is a great feature. Wish mine didn't need them.

I had to modify the Windows 8.1 PCR-500 drivers to make mine work in Win 10 (as did others - See Blades post on the Computer part of the forum).
 
Roland has has updated SOME device drivers to work in Win 10, such as the Octa-Capture and Studio-Capture.  They are now "plug and play" rather than having to manually install the drivers. 
 
Here is a list of updated drivers from the Roland site.  The PCR keyboards are NOT listed as supported.

I notice that list now has more Yes' that were previously No's. I wonder if they are responding to customers contacting them directly.

Hi there,
I just bought a new desktop for Christmas using Windows 10 professional and I was really surprised that my Roland PCR300 Controller keyboard was recognised straight away by the Windows operating system and the drivers were automatically loaded. All the connections show up in Sonar Platinum under preferences/midi in the Midi Input and Midi Output fields. Roland have no Windows Drivers for Windows 10 so I decided to connect the PCR 300 via USB before trying to load any of the available drivers and it worked straight away.
Having said that, I need to spend some time over the holiday period to see if ACT will work with my PCR 300 as it did on my older PC using Windows 7.
I notice in Sonar Platinum that the PCR 300 does not show up in the list of devices under the pull down menu for midi controllers as it did under Windows 7 and Soar X3.
Will keep you posted.

Sorry about the typo. It should read Sonar X3 which is what I have been using until recently.
