MC-505 has many incredible features and I will keep mine. Im not going for the MC-909 hype. So far, Im not impressed. And Syd, the only place you can still find the memory cards for the MC-505 is eBay. buy it now for only $89 which is pretty damn steep but probably still worth it if you love this machine like I do.

Yes teh 505 is just as editable...Its has the same roland architecture as the jv-10/20 80's and the programming on it can get very very deep.If you ever get a chance load up Emagics Soundiver and you can see all the 505's parametes visually.And once you see all the controls that are burried in it,you can truly harness the power of it's synth engine....No matter what any on says this thing can create some awesome sounds....just as long as you don't judge it from it's preset crap.

No sure why, but the MC303 actually has bettter sounding drums to my ear. I have played both together side by side for over 3 years and I never use the MC505 for drums cuz they just dont sound right to me. strange isnt it? go figure. I dumped the 505 and kept the 303, but will probably dump it soon too. Grooveboxes have had their time with me.

Get this machine, it is much better than the 303, and with effects it will allow you to create some original sounds. It is a great box, with so many functions, it's impossible to know all the secrets of this box, in ten years, this will be the classic. Add couple samplers a mixer and some cool keyboard like Nord Lead or Z1 and you're set for the road.

Check out mine,

Hi. I'm still pretty new to MIDI and electronic music so this may still be considered a 'newbie' comment. I own a MC-303 and recently grabbed a MC-505 off Ebay. After having it for a month, all I can say is HELL YEAH. If any of you MC-303 owners want to upgrade but don't want to learn a new interface...this is the kit for you. Huge sounds, real-time tweakage, multi-outs, more storage(patch/pattern), way way way better effects. The list goes on really. I haven't touched the manual too much yet and I am writing and editing patterns easily thanks to using the MC-303 as training wheels. MC-505 is dope and should keep me busy for the rest of this winter anyways. Peace out!!!!
