There is command that controls the part of the MIDI control (ON/OFF a tones, etc.) and control the PCKey2MIDI software. The p2m file is a kind of the configuration file of PCKey2MIDI. There is a part automatically executed when it is loaded. These can be edited on PCKey2MIDI. Or, it is possible to edit a more detailed control is possibleit with the text editor.

Command can be issued by the movement of the axis device and ON/OFF of the button of each device. The parameter which is velocity, pitchbend or etc. changes similarly to the movement of the axis. The MIDI controller is one of the input equipment. And MIDI controller's keyboard can be relocated. And, A simple MIDI controller can have a complex function by using one MIDI controller's key as a shift key.

Moreover, there is a concept named Filter. Command is issued with the button and the axis. Next, Command is applied Filter of the button or axis device which posted this command. Afterwards, Command is applied Filter of the device which have the button or axis. And, it is finally output to MIDI-Out Port.

Command can operate not only connected MIDI-Out Port but also the parameter of other MIDI-Out Port. One master controller which is MIDI controller, Joystick, Keyboard, or etc. can change other MIDI controllers' layouts, the channel, the tone, or etc.
