Have 5 of them and have spent hundreds upon hundreds, maybe thousands of hours. Not user friendly, probably why they didn't sell too well, but once figured it out STILL a great sequencer. Makes a good MIDI module.

I have three MV-30s (two for stage use and one at home for programming). I didn't buy them when they first came out (they were very expensive then although I think the price was justified) but I only started sequencing tracks in the late 1990s. Unfortunately one of them has a dodgy LCD display (goes off occasionally) and one LCD display has "died" completely - obviously a weakness there. Does anyone know if new LCD displays are still available?

Pros - Dynamic mixing or the equivalent of moving fader automation, displayed on screen. This is a feature I wish my MC-80 had. OS and data load from floppies, so if a thief steals the machine it's useless. The drum sounds still hold water in 2006. Effects are easy to access, edit and apply. Cons - Sound engine is noisy and the timbres are a bit lacking if compared to modern (2006) machines. Wall wart is huge, easily damaged and expensive to replace. Loading is very slow from floppy. If you lose power everything has to be rebooted from floppy. A UPS is essential if you are using the machine live. Despite it's shortcomings, this is still a great machine if you are doing solo / duet work.

MV30 is a great machine for live single/duo band work. Most sounds on it are great. On the drum sounds, there is no 'ride cymbal'. Has anyone been able to create a ride cymbal from these existing timbres? If so please let me know the config for it.
