This machine can do it all, but you dam near need a masters degree in music to operate it! This machine is not user friendly and rather daunting if i may say so myself. I've worked with all types of samplers and drum machines and I never had a problem until I met this Roland confusion box called the mv-8000. I immediately sole mine after about 3 weeks of headaches. I bought it from a guy off ebay that stated it was just to time consuming to learn. If you enjoy quick results this is not the machine to buy. If you like spending hours trying to fiqure how things work than this is the machine for you. I just wanna make music fast and effeciently, so I sold my MV-8000 fast and effeciently!

This is a STUPID quest: is it possible to assign different pitch, cutoff, resonance for each sample on MV8000 as you can do on Battery or any MPCs? I'm using an old powerbook mac running Logic 4.8,Battery,Virtual synth,Peak and i spend 3Hours to do just (1)Track!!! I saw that MV8k could be fast and flexible, easy to use for me(ex SP808 user). Please give me the answer 'cause MV is not available at moment in Rome, so you have to buy a 2000EUR machine without try it before.BIG ASHAME. Pardon for my english!!!

I'm wondering if any who uses the MV has noticed that when you import a sample that you have on the hard drive (samples you loaded in from a sample CD) that once you assign it to a patch or chop up the sample than assign it that the quality of the sample is affect. I assigned the same sample to an audio phrase to be played on an audio track and compared the two. The one on the audio track maintained the high quality of the sample were as the one on the midi track sounded like the quality was degraded to a certain degree. I'm not sure if I have something turned on or off that is causing this problem. If you know what the problem is please let me know cause this is annoying me a bit. Thanks

I have owned the MV8000 for about 3 weeks now, this thing is huge in size, but considering its a sampler a recorder a synth, mixer, has a cdr and drum machine, I can see why. It took up my desk space so I bought one of those QL-400 Mixer Stand, which is great because you can have it tilted or flat and it rolls out of your way if needed. I am a computer based producer using programs such as Sonar 5 Producer Edition, Ableton Live 5, FL studio 6 and Adobe Audition 1.5, when I started this thing up I didn't know where to begin, I watched the videos over at which helped a little, but when I got the Manual on DVD, I started bangin beats, chopping, doing all types of track in minutes, each time you watch it you gain a bit more knowledge. The 128 mb is not enough to do a lot so I had a 256 pc1000 module sitting here and replaced the factory 128mb, but I will get the 512mb soon, you can use up the memory very fast, if you load a lot of long samples. The mixdown and mastering tools are great with plenty of presets that you can audition and click one button or customize your music manually. I like the fact it has 8 faders that can be assigned to and midi or effect control, and 3 knobs to do some very wicked modulation with the instruments. This is a long time coming, Roland has done a great job I would like to replace the floppy with a 9-1 meadia reader and more memory slots (4 slots with up to 4 gb ram sampling) and a color screen onboard would have been better, I oredered the vga mouse expansion board so that will have to do, Roland Mv8000 VS Akai MPC (any) Roland wins hands down.
