Just good as a drum machine.If you´re into the real techno thing just forget it.It just doesn´t have the sound.Soon you´ll see what i´m talking about.The price is too high for such machine,and since it´s only good for drums you can buy a virtual analogue drumstation like Novation,for almost half the price.Believe me i´ve got one.

MC-505 kicks butt!! Im glad I didnt blow 2-3K on a Triton. Or the K2600. Im just havin too much fun with the 505. Who cares if its not a triton for 5 times the $$ or if its not a K2600 for 10 times the $$. Man I just dont have that kinda $$ to blow. Im glad somebody does tho. Damn! That stuff is Yuppie gear. I mean give me a break!!! The 505 is rock solid--built like a tank and is compact too. I love mine. Use it with other gear and your will have more fun. - Peace -

In my third week of ownership I find the manual considerably lacking. The presets are good but the filtering process along with wave selection strike me as being a little convoluted and have yet to achieve (or save) a decent patch. For composition the arpeggiator can deploy some interesting polyrhythmic effect. I purchased the machine after using a Yamaha RM1X, this machine has far better sequencing capabilities but sounded disgusting, so far despite the manual I have created some descent patterns but can’t save any songs yet, one day Roland might get this act together too!

MC-505 sounds bad until you really find all its potential.Listening the preset patterns is a very good way of finding the potential of the gear-doesnt aply to the mc-505.I have my mc-505 for 2 years and the most difficult thing is how to combine all those efxs.Once you start joining all the pieces you can do very good quality music.I think even guys at Roland dont know the potential of what they created.Isnt bad as may seem at first sight.Just explore it and you´ll see.

Love my 505. I've used it live, on sessions, at the airport writing songs, everywhere there is a power outlet, and the thing never stop blowing me away with it's sound quality and feature set. Yea, the seq. could have more game, but the limitations are a blessing in this world of unlimited track cound Logic/Cubase computer seq. In the studio one time, I used the 505s RPS presets and some breakbeat samples to lay down 8 hip-hop tracks in 2 hours for a client that couldn't afford the real thing... And he was very pleased, and I blew myself away. The tracks were dope.
