Got this thing in a second hand store in Japan, and I knew a friend of mine who had it in Sweden. Loved the deepend basses on it. Everything else is solid. But don't expect realistic "rhodes" or "tremolo" effects on the EPs if you gonna make hiphop or house music.

They only drawback is that it can't recieve "sustain"-pedal messages when input from my keyboard setup. If you can live with that and use it live, it's a great gear. I only use it to get creative when writing songs. But soon I'll do a buy up to the MC-808. (Same sounds, higher quality.) As a previous reviewer said. It's like fine wine. Sooner or later it will go high up as retro-gear. :)

I have no idea what the reviewer StanG below is talking about when he says MC909 and MC808 aren't multitimbral. They most certainly are multitimbarl. I can sequence up to 16 different timbres on my 909 if polyphony permits. Be wary of the internetz, so much misinformation.

I love this orange thing. From the beginning I had some difficult times with interface but when you get used to it (it is not so hard) you can really express yourself in many ways. D-field is extreemly cool, you can "writte" solos with your finger tip... and record that too. There's many sounds you can choose from and they can be also ADSR tweeaked and saved. For my needs this unit has big potentials and I'm far away from using all it can offer. It has so many features and such poor display. I whish it had more memory because I find D2 so creative that I've filled it up really fast. My favorite feature on this orange beast is arpeggiator. Plenty rhytmic forms and motifs alows you can make energetic bass lines in just seconds. Record it on D2 and send it to your other synth like electribe or PC-VSti. Just make sure you will have MIDI keyboard. For 130 EUR this thing earns 6 out of 5 This litlle toy is not going to leave my house.

The year was like 1999 i was poor! then i saw the Roland mc-505 and i fell in love with her! i never got one but i all ways played with her all the time at the music store! t]Then then Roland MC-307 came out so i got the mc-307, i liked the 307 but the only reason why i got the 307 was becuse it was new and i got a deal on it at the time 2001! one more reason i got the 307 was on the mc-505 the led lights brun out on it I saw at the music store and looking for a 505 on eaby! The thing that made me mad about the mc-307 was it did not have the MEGAMIX MODE! Then there was the Roland JX-305 groovekeyboard! just like the mc-505 at the time $1000! the thing about the jx-305 to big and the cost! Then there was the D2 she looks ugly but it what in the inside to conts! as for the mc-909 and the mc 808 groovebox the sound are nice but its not Multi-timbral!
