I watched the online video, and it seemed simple to use. The guy said that if you were a current MPC user that using the MV8000 would be a no brainer. Well, I was eager to try it, especially since a friend of mine owns it. After about 2 hours, I couldn't get it to do anything. It took about 2 minutes just to start up, some of the pads had a slight delay when using velocity sensitivity.. worked great at full level tho. I may have to give it another try, but I've been producing for years. Used computers, ASR's, MPC's, even the crap sequencer on the emax 1, but I can't figure this thing out. What's the use of haveing 1000 options if you have to constantly go in the manual to do something REALLY simple. I like gear that give me instant gratification. I should be about to do most functions without a book. After years of producing, it's time to make good music, I really don't want to learn anything new, because I already know how to create good music. Roland products are known for being hard to understand. Seems like the MV8000 follows the same tradition.

THE ROLAND MV 8000 IS THE ULTIMATE DRUM MACHINE WORKSTATION. NOW WITH OPERATING SYSTEM 3.0 WITH PATTERN MODE, DRUM GRID AND THE NEW ANALOG MODELING SYNTH ITS A NO BRAINER TO TURN IN YOUR MPC. IVE HAD THE MACHINE ONE WEEK AND ALREADY I HAVE ABOUT 6 HOT SONGS. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ROLAND. IM OUT.

1. I'm a MPC guy. 2. I really like Roland for their sounds and keyboards. 3. Can someone e-mail me a cheat sheet or something? I can't even get a simple pattern going. And I really want to be able to put vocals into the track section so I can make remixes. I don't have the mpc 4000, but I fooled around with it in the store and I was able to make a track in 10 minutes. I can't rate this yet because I haven't done anything worth rating. The use of it out the box is ridiculously hard. And I've been programming for years.

i like the roland 8000, but it has one down fall. the fact that it lack the ability to make a drum pattern. stringing pattern into a song would make the roland the boss hog of sample drum machine the roland r8 from years ago had the best editing function ever, you could step write, put in tripplet note from step write no matter how many bars it was, so if they just put that into mv-8000 they would be un-real some thing to die for.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
