my dad had 2 MV-30's and gave me 1. im still getting used to it. its got only 1 problem. it needs a new backlight for the screen. its only about a 5th as bright as it originally was. if anyone could email me about where to get hold of one i would really appreciate it. its an awesome little module, and can still compete with the new stuff coming out nowdays (in my opinion). I use it mostly as a database for sounds for CUBASE SX. (output midi channels to it)

I HAVE BEEN USING THIS MACHINE FOR THE BETTER PART OF 7 YRS ANDHAVE BEEN MORE THATN PLEASED WITH IT'S VERSATILITY. FUNNY THING IS THAT I HAVE ONLY USED IT FOR A FRACTION OF WHAT ITS CAPABILITY. AM LOOKING FOR A MANUAL TO EXPAND MY USES. ROLAND HAD A WINNER WITH THIS BUT DID NOT CONTINUE ITS FUNCTIONS FOR THE FUTURE OR THE USERS THAT BOUGHT ONE. IM LOOKING TO BUY ANOTHER.

I've got nothing but good things to say about the StudioM. First of all the sound engine is equivantly the same as the U-220 and the D-70. This gives you the ability to read cards for all three machines and it gives you a nice multimode filter to play with and basic envelopes. The sounds are great compared to similar units such as grooveboxes and arrangers. No preset patterns however! The unit originally sold for three grand and the quality touches are nice, such as metro out, three stereo outputs, tape sync, midi thru and soft thru. Sequence recording and editing is fairly straightforward. The RPS implementation is more powerful than on other Roland units. All in all i would think that only the QY-700 from yamaha offers a better interface in a hardware sequencer, but of course the MV30 has those 8 sliders which send midi information. I won't bother to rag on the units polyphony. Anyone who's used a MC-303 or the QY-700 knows that you can get reasonably full arangements with 32 voices, but you've got to work with what you've got.

I have used my MV30 for various applications since I got it 10 years ago, and it has never failed me. First it provided the orchestra for a local drama group. Second, it has been used for numerous recording projects, both for recording rock and pop, and for backing tracks to spoken word recordings. In its current incarnation, it provides the backing for the function band that I play in - we provide bass, guitar and sax, a Yamaha RM50 provides the drums, and the MV30 does the rest, including sending out controller info for vocal and guitar FX.

The only problem that I have with it is that Double Density disks seem to be so hard to come by these days.
