I just got my 202 about a month ago. It didn't come with a manual, so I was completely lost when it came to programming it.(Still don't know if I'm doing it right) But, once I figured it out, I realized just how powerful this tiny thing is. I could play a song on a keyboard if my life depended on it, but I can program loops. This box has so much more versatility to it's sequencers than the 303. The sonic range is unbelievable. Deep and low to High and thin. The next 303? Yes and no. Yes because it does a pretty good copy of some 303 sounds. No because there is no MIDI. This is my first MIDI-less instrument, but This isn't a problem. It's a door into the world of real analog synths.

Great mono synth, excellent for use as a sequencer for other older roland gear. Be warned however this thing does low sounds really well (ie. dub bass) and high pitched sounds (squelches etc.) but there really isn't much of a middle ground even with 4 octaves selectable. It seems roland knew even in the 80's what the machine would be used for and made one to fit the needs of dance musicians worldwide.

Ah, if I had it to do over again... I bought an MC202 in 1986 BRAND NEW, STILL IN THE SEALED BOX for $99! Back then anything that wasn't digital/ midi was considered junk. At the time I had a Sequential Pro-1 and I was delighted to find that it could be hooked up to the 202 to create a kind of "super synth". I had lots of fun with it and it was cool having a go-anywhere portable synth. Unfortunately I lost it (and the Pro-1!) in a house fire a few months later. I have very few regrets in life but I will always be a bit sad over the fact that I didn't have the presence of mind to grab my 202 on the way out of the burning house. Damn, it was the most portable, easy-to-carry peiece of gear I owned! There was no excuse for leaving it behind (except for the fact that dying in a house fire would hgave ruined my whole day!) Now I see these little guys are selling USED for 5 or 6 times what I paid for mine NEW. Is life unfair or what?

cool machine.I saw some where that if the sh101 and the tb303 had a baby it would be called an mc202, and it is.It has as many sound possibilities as the sh101 but way more sequencer capabilities.It has far more sound possibilities than the 303(good emulation with portamento and accent).I dont have a problem with saving sounds on the tape save feature.just cue up the tape and press load,it takes about 15 seconds.Plus "power save" lets you put the unit in memory mode while it is off. This thing is particullarly cool because if you have any other cv/gate synth you can have the 202 and that synth playing two different sequences at the same.winding and intermeshing like two robotic snakes of audio languidity...
