I actually took the time to read through all the comments and I hear some pretty bad shit and some good shit. Im about to lay down some good comments. I not only make and mix my own music but I also work with other indie artists (singers, rhymists, etc.) I have a korg n364, ea-1, ms200r, roland mc-303, 307, boss sp-202, and when it comes to whipping up some quick I always grab the 307. Its just too easy to use and its got some bad ass sounds. My only complaints is that I miss the not so sensitive cutoff and resonance knobs of the 303 in the 307. And for everyone bitching about the keyboard, go buy a controller!!! If you spent $700 on the 307 then whats the hurt in shelling out $50-100 on a controller keyboard? www.mp3.com/djfony

I bought my MC-307 a month ago and i absolutely love it. If you are hesitating to buy one, don't be discouraged by those sad gits who tell you that they've heard that the rm1x is better or whatever. The mc-307 has everything i looked for (except for a sampler). A vast amount of drum soufrom gabba to jazz and tweakable synths ahoy! The turntable emulation is also handy if you're into dj-ing. I spin with vinyl and Roland have done a good job emulating that into this box. Buy Buy Buy!!!

The MC 307 is definitly the most refined groovebox yet. The GB series is finally starting to come of age. Strongpoints: In the rhythm section, you can customize all of the drum kits and save it as your own. So, you can select all your fav kicks snares and hh's and even name the kit. The synth section works the same way. It's so nice to be able to save your fav sounds in your own user section. As for the turntable emulation... i don't know of anyone that will actually use this, but it's nice to have. I like to change up the pitch on the fly. It's cool. Negatives: Sometimes the FX section is difficult to manage. Sometimes I save my pattern, then my LFO, reso and cutoff settings reset. Strange. I hope this is just a software bug that will be fixed soon. Like all the groovebox type units, I would definitly say this is a great unit if you plan on sampling lines. Don't count on this as your all in one i'm a live superstar megasilverbox. 'tweak...

I know the MC products from Roland, because I used to have the MC-303 I sold it to a friend because I found it too limited. I've bought an MC-307, and I can tell you it's better. If you are a real electronic musician, you will like this piece of gear, knowing that this one cannot be used alone. If the Roland team has included a JV-like sound engine, it means that you can, have to make your own sounds. The presets patterns are bad (japanese programmers !!), and a lot of sounds seems to be like the MC-303 sounds, but, there are plenty of new sounds, thick,techno sounds, and many users memory to store your creations. Programm it, use it with samplers, E-mu XL1, a FM synth, a Korg POLY800, and a VIRUS Access. Add the Roland's touch in your mix !! For the price and the about 800 waveforms and the 95,000 notes sequencer, you won't be disappointed !!!!!!

First I'd like to say in the way of grooveboxes I've owed the MC-307, MC-505, MC-303, and the RM1x. They all have their weak points and strong points. I feel they shouldn't be judged aginst one another. It is kind of a paper-scissors-rock thing. The RM1x has the best overall sequencer, the MC-505 has the best interface, the MC-303 is...uh well...inexpensive. The MC-307 IMnotSO has the best sound of all these. It is however built like crap. Every time I grab a knob I'm afraid it will break off in my hand. I must say though that has yet to happen. Do not get this piece if you own any JV's (it would be redundant) or if you don't like cheesey sounds.
