I love the MC-303. If you are into retro dance music sounds like I am, you will love it too. This is a great thing to use as a synth module with a midi keboard, or to use as a sound module to play midi files through that you've sequenced on your computer. That's the stuff I use it for anyway. It also has its own sequencer built in, but I haven't used it much, because my style of composition usually isn't based around short repeated patterns.

If you want some cool dance-oriented synth and drum machine sounds for a relatively low price, you should definately get the MC-303 Groove Box.

shut up!!! stop ragging ths thing, not every body has a arse load of cash to buy top o' the line stuff,not everyone can afford a ton of software and a good computer, if your starting off buy this thing its great for the bedroom producer, sure the sounds do suck...... but you can squeeze some good juice out of this mug, be creative, if someone gives you lemons make lemonade, now a 505 is alot better[because you can actually see what your programing, unlike the 303 where you have to remember what you just punched in]i think people dont want to put forward the effort to get the most out of it [probably because its a pain and a half to program]being my first puchase it was a very wise investment,cheap fun,blah if you wanna make minimal detroit hardcore stuff like me its pretty good,the korg boxes are muy bueno too,i wonder what people expect to do with this thing,its alright for techno but some of the people who post messages seem like there trying to pro gram a symphony with or like rock music,whatevr.....if you wanna get into electronic music get one but dont make it the center of your studio and dont keep it forever!keep the DOOF alive!!!

Don't buy an MC-303. 909 sounds are crap and there's no way it sounds like a 303. In general the sounds are weak and thin, although once you get to know it, the sequencer is useful for getting ideas down. But really, all the sounds are total shite.

yeah man. i the music lies solely in the creator and not the instrument. you can use the same piece to do a million things. i don't think it's the best, but it's a solid instrument for what it does and for it's price range.

people dont dislike this machine for no reason. the fact you have played music for 40 years does not have anything to do with this. the mc 303 has HORRIBLE midi implementation, tacky outdated sounds and one of the most user unfriendly interfaces ever created, not to mention very signifigant memory problems with the sequencer that make it unreliable for any serious amount of sequencing. no one has said they dont like this because they can afford better gear. once again someone is making shit up out of the blue to defend this terd. if you dont have enough money for better gear than keep saving. and about your guitar comparison. a cheap guitar is still a guitar, electronic instruments are all so hugely different from one another that a price difference really does (for the most part) mean a quality difference. that is the nature of electronics. if you buy an mc 303 expecting it to sound like a tb 303 just because you have got the "creative willpower" to do so youve got a lot to learn. of course you can make music with it but it makes it a lot harder and a lot less personal, modulateable than the other stuff that is out there will allow. if you can afford 300 for one of these you can afford 500 for something better.
