I'm considering buying a new MIDI controller to replace my old Fatar Studio 88 Plus which is beginning to show signs of aging (Scratchy mod wheel, some keys not working consistently, etc.) I'm looking at the new Edirol PCR-800 which, even though it only has 61 keys, has a lot of interesting features. But, it does not have a mod wheel, per se. Not having purchased a controller in 15 years and not being physically able to go to a brick and mortar place to actually try something out and ask a "knowledgable" person I thought I'd pose my question here and hope someone can give me some guidance. Since the PCR-800 has assignable knobs and sliders does this mean I can assign controller numbers such as CC#1 to one of these knobs to control that function from the keyboard? I like the description of this controller - it has aftertouch and 16 velocity pads. Thanks in advance for your help and assistance.
