I rented one and used it to try syncing my gear in a live pa/dj use. hooked up a korg er-1 and an ea-1. also used a yamaha rm1x together with it. as a dj i find the pitch bend to be way too sensative. the pitch control is not consistant it doesnt go in smooth steps like on a denon or pioneer dj cd player. for the price i found it to be too limiting but at the time it was the only device i could find that would sync my equipment and let me pitch bend. the sounds lick. i looked in the manual to see if there is an option to change the pitch bend range. couldnt find anything.

I have spent the last couple of weeks researching this product vs. the RM1X. Your site has been great assistance to me, thank you everyone for your opinions. However, I ended up picking the MC-307. I decided on this, because I have been Djing 7 years and I have little experience making music (Rebirth is all). The MC-307 seems like a "happy medium" between a DJ tool and a beginner drum machine. My complaints about the machine are common, no zip drive (I plan on buying the 808 with it) and the keypad feels cheap (same with the RM1X). The RM1X was hard to figure out at first and the MC-307 seems a bit more user friendly. My main motivation was that I would like to use my MC-307 as a third turntable (in a way). With this machine, I can layer my sets with sounds, basslines, and such. I want to cue it up and go… unlike the RM1X. I want to make minimal house with not a whole lot of additional clutter. I think this will suit my needs. So, far I am pleased with it and the sounds haven't been too disappointing. Some presets really suck, but don't they all? It seems that what sounds people are calling "boring and liveless" are a standard in Roland machines and you would be surprised on how many artists use these sounds.

Asked the productspecialist at the Frankfurter Messe 2000 if the pitchfunction also sends midi.......well, they couldn't aswer this question. The full Roland stand got really nervous...and like i guessed: you can use the pitch to change the speed, but only of the 307 itself. So useless in the studio. And as there's still NO deejay who uses any of the GrooveGear and (i guess) there will be none in the future this strange machine will not be very popular.

I tweaked one at a music store and the first impression wasn't good. I listened thru the preset patterns and noticed the sounds are very similar to MC-303 (I owned one before). The interface is good and quick, though. Could be a useful toy for a DJ.

I owned an MC 505 for two years and I recently sold it to get something else. I was not a fan of the MC's. The 505 got real old real quick. However these things are like the best drum machines I've ever used. I was going to replace my 505 with an XP-30 but when I got it home I ended up hating it and returned it the very next day. While I was at the store I started playing around with the MC 307 and the drums are just amazing. I'm thinking that I might replace the 505 with a 307. Weird I know but they are just so easy to use and thats whats cool about them.
