well...time and software development have rolled on...it's too bad this guy didn't come out as a beefed up mc-505 (with the big screen and roland's top of the line sound set and sampling) around $700US...that would have cleaned out the competition!

now there's too many cheap laptops and FREE softsynths, samplers, and sequencers to compete with...plus there's the OpenSynth (although the OpenSynth is currently > $4KUS)

...(rs7K, r.i.p.)...

i love the idea of grooveboxes and have the mc505, rm1x, an200, and dx200

for my new 'groovebox' i bought an eMachines M6811 and Live 4.0 plus FL Studio and a host of softsynths...

so much for grooveboxes!

She's really not too bad to use although I will say read the manual, once you understand the logic it's pretty simple. Do read up on the section on Rhythym kits and patches cause that's what will help you to understand the logic of this peice. sampling is cool although the sampler sounds too clean, I like grit and dirt in my samples. Pretty much everything is self explanitory if you dedicate 3 to 4 days just learning it inside and out you'll find she's not that bad it has it's quirks but what equipment doesnt. I'm still learning the peice but soon I'll be str8. Right now Im learning how to sequence on this peice. I'll tell more as I go along.

Peace
