I've found a simple fix: reboot your system in 32 bit mode
(you can do it simply holding the 3 and 2 buttons while rebooting).
You'll find that then the pc-300 will work just fine!!
I don't know in detail the difference between 32 and 64 bit mode, but there's no risk for your data and the general performances look to me quite the same.
Enjoy your keyboard

Not sure if it's still needed but Roland have released a driver.

There is a very simple - almost too easy - way to get the PC-300 running under ANY platform:
Forget USB and use MIDI!
Okay, you need a MIDI interface or a soundcard with a MIDI connection. In my case it's the Komplete Audio 6 USB device which has a MIDI output.
I consider this to be the ideal solution which is future proof. You just don't have to mess around with old drivers or depend on the manufacturer to release new ones.
It's as simple as that - hope this helps!
P.S.: The linked drivers mentioned before are for the PCR-300 which is a completely different device. They are not working with the PC-300.

One can also use the following driver:
It works with Mac OS X 10.8.2 (64 bit). Read the README on how to compile and install the driver.
Hope this helps!

The driver can be installed without knowing any C++ with the following procedure:
- download and install XCode (https://developer.apple.com/xcode/)
- download the zip folder containing GenericUSBMIDI
- open GenericUSBMIDI.xcodeproj in XCode
- push the "Play" button in XCode to compile the code
- copy the resulting GenericUSBMIDI.plugin file to /Library/Audio/MIDI\ Drivers/
Altough I do not guarantee that it works and shall not be liable for potential damages that this procedure causes.

ive tried everything you have said, but cannot get a build with 77 warnings !
Could you possible send me a successful build you have already sone by any chance ??

Just wanted to let you know, this worked PERFECTLY for me. While there are a ton of warnings during the build, the resulting plugin works exactly as advertised. Thanks so much for your effort, as a fine MIDI controller can now continue to do the same great job it has for many years.
