I bought this off e-bay last fall but haven't had a chance to play with it until this week. I've only gotten as far as to play with the preset patterns and RPS's...this thing is totally addictive. Perhaps I'll write a real review when I've actually made some of my own music with this. In any case I'm having a good time with it.

Ive used the 505 since 2000. I had purchased one used of E-bay. I think its a great machine. Im not a big fan of the presets, but I love creating original ideas on user patterns & kits. Im considering picking up another one. I think its a very flexible machine. I make electronic, Rock, breaks, and basicly music you could put to a sci-fi flick. I also use the SP-808, Alesis sr 16, Dr-202, and old yamaha keyboard with the 505, and with all of that i can create some pretty wicked cuts.

I had a MC-505 for 4yrs and sold it on ebay. It was a great machine at that time but since then I have replaced it with a elektron machinedrum and a elektron monomachine so I will not compar the MC-505 to them because it would upset to many of you that own a 505. What I can tell you is that the 505 sounds great when tweaked right. It would have been nice to have some inputs on it but oh well. The sounds from the 505 are all sampled sounds so you will not get analog from it but you do get some pretty decent bass sounds and leads. Enjoy your 505 like I did and I wish you all the best in your future with producing music. :)

Got it for $250... added it a bunch of other gear and it is really great for what it is. This "groovebox" goes suprisingly deep. Have to give it a 5 out of 5 considering the price.

Yes, buyers should know that the 5V Smartmedia cards for the MC505 (the SM-4 card) is almost unavailable. The ONLY place you will find them is eBay, but probably not for too much longer. Better get em before they are all gone which will most likely be soon. The MC505 is a legendary machine and full of possibilities. But you will need the cards if you want to have tons of extra RAM. They are extremely important especially for ease of use in live performance.
