At one particular moment of this documentary (called "Meet Squarepusher", from The Creators Project), precisely starting on the 7:07 mark, Tom Jenkinson shows (as described by himself) the "*current manifestation of his live setup*". Along with rack pieces and expression pedals, a Roland PK-5A can also be spotted on it. At first glance, there's quite a lot of doubt whether it's a PK-5 or a PK-5A. And even though there's tape everywhere hiding the brands (most notably on all of the Roland EV-5s), the PK-5A can still be distinguished by several factors: - The color scheme of the PK-5A is darker compared to the PK-5 one. - The font used on the PK-5A is significantly smaller than the one used on the PK-5. - The function chart on the top right portion of the PK-5A is extensively longer than the one found on the PK-5. Functions such as Transpose, Battery Check and Dump do not appear on the PK-5 chart.more
I use this on almost any trio gig to fill out the sound beyond guitar, bass and drums. The ability to trigger samples or even play it as a polyphonic instrument means that I can expand a band to include organ, rhodes, strings whatever. Easy to use midi controller (and that's saying something, changing patches, octaves, mono/polyphonic even during a song).
