My first contact with sequencing was years ago when my friend let met borrow his mc-50 for months (i was very lucky!). It was the original one, not mk2 but it sure worked well. I spent countless hours doing all sorts of experimental music with this and my keyboard (sy-35). It really works well, and it seemed pretty stable. Drum programming was really cool as you have a good number of editing commands to manipulate your tracks. I saw one in a pawn shop the other day...barely could resist buying it even if i don't need one right now. All in all, very recommended if you need an hardware sequencer. Maybe this review is a bit biased 'cause i don't like computer sequencing so much...

wow, came across a post i wrote a while back on this thing!! man was i stupid!! Well...i pretty much ditched computer sequencing, although i may get back into it sometime later...i have all my gear,a midi patchbay, and this Mc50 sequencer (the original, not the Mk2)I can do EVERYTHING on this. drum sequencing, pattern sequencing,you name it. I feel like its sort of computer when im punching in all these numbers and hearing beeps...so Vince Clarke'ish ; )

Ive also noticed the price for Mc-series sequencers has gone up DRASTICALLY. people want $300 for this one, and for the Mc300/500, they want tons too..luckily i found some guy who was in dire need to sell his, and i got it with everything in immaculate condition for $125...how about that eh? Seriously, who needs a computer to sequence?? ; )

I bought the MKII to play live, most of my sequencing is done in Cubase and then I load it on the MKII. It can hold plently of data so your not limited by memory, load a midi file and save it in MKII format to save space and load time. Each of the 8 tracks can record 16 channels so it a virtual 128 tracks, although you only have two midi outs so you are limited to only 32 midi devices (track outputs are midi out assignable). All in all it it very useable and I have programmed full length songs on it (fits nicely in your lap).

I picked mine up MINTY MINT for $125!! Even though i picked the Mc-50 version (not the MKII, which cost $649 new). Its great, everything i ever expected from a hardware sequencer, in the words of Vince Clarke , SCREW MIDI!!

I like the machine, however it lags when repeating a short looped sequence (like when jumping from measure 4 back to 1). Also, my MIDI In, Out1, and Out2 jacks just went sour so it's in the shop. Other than that, it's the best stand alone hardware sequencer available (but does that say much?). SMILE IF YOU'RE FRAGMENTED. -discomac
