I'd like to bet that people who think the MC307 is a soft bit of gear have only played around with it for an hour or two - the preset patterns are a red herring for these people, because there the first thing you see, but you don't ever use them (well I don't). The longer you spend getting to know it and working through the manual, you realise you can do pretty much whatever you want with it . My only criticism is the amount of work required to get to the point where it is doing what you want.

On the point of getting the MC307 to do what you want, does anyone know of a MC307 definition patch for Cakewalk (i know there are patches for the 303 and 505) - or is it just a matter of time??

What about the sequencer ? I used to own a mc303. I love the sequencer but I was very dissapointed when I understood that I wasn't really good at working with external toy like my sampler. So how is the new sequencer ? Can it control an external sampler like my akai S5000 ? Can it act on control change, filter, cutoff and all these kind of things ? In a few words, is this piece of gear usefull for live acts using other synths ? Thanks !

GREAT BOX. easy to use right out of the box, but after you read the manual it has tons more features. You can whine all day long about programming yourself, but if you can get over the fact that other people can program some good grooves you will love it. I start playing in the evening and cant quit. it's that much fun! and no.. i don't work for roland.

First, I'd like saying I'm very disappointed about comments below !! In the world, there are many people who are technicians and don't know making music and people who are musician and don't understand anything in technology. Second, People who says that a MC307 is a preset machine have to read specifications again ! I own a MC307 Roland, I'm musician since 1980 (pianist) and electronic consultant. I own a MC307 groovebox Roland, a JV1010 Roland, Poly800 II Korg, A3000 V2 Yamaha, MB33II Mam, TX81Z Yamaha, and I will buy VAs like VIRUS indigo rack ACCESS and MICRO-Q Waldorf. It's obvious that if you just listen to MC307 Roland preset patterns, you will be very disappointed about the box, but don't forget a thing : you've got 256 users patterns (if you are creative you will fill them quickly), and 256 users patches for your own...patches and you say a preset machine ??? LAUGH OUT LOUD !!!!! The problem with a MC is that you have some non usable sounds in it (maybe very intelligent people know how to use them !!!) and I found the sound quality a little bit less good that a JV Roland for a few patches. But listen to the new kit like DR110, TR505/606 kit, hip-hop kit, add a lo-fi effect on these ones and put the main outputs to a real analog filter (4pole Waldorf or an Electrix) and it rocks. The MC307 is not a piece of gear for kids, kids must buy a MC303 or a DJX Yamaha. MC307 is a high technology in a box !!! It's not a toy because 303 + 4 =307 and 307 is closer to 303 than 505 !!!!! This box must be experimented not used alone !!! If you want to be a music star, don't forget to work on the sound not only the music. The MC-307 have good synth capabilities : 4 tones with FXM and ring mod, 2 LFOs, 3 Env (pitch,amp,filter), filter (lpf,bpf,hpf,peak) for a patch !!!! If you say that MC307 is for kid, try to build your own box, and I'm sure this box will be for dogs and cats !!! Spend more time with the box, and the manual before saying anything !!!
