I don't know how you feel the 303 is put to shame by the 505, but if you look at the price difference, you'll see the 303 is a much greater value. True, they are both toys, but for a beginning synthesist they can be very valuable.

hey nobody,

i agree with the fact that purchasing an external sequencer solves the memory problem, but that doesn't solve my problem of wasting money unnecessarily. my friend just bought the MC-505 and it puts the 303 to shame. sure, it is a great machine if it's only one piece of your setup. it's a waste of money to get the 303 for any decent studio set-up. as we can all see, roland has releaased the MC-307 which is more practical for the dj. however, it was easy to learn step-programming and other basic synth techniques. i sold mine within a year of purchase and i'll only get another one if i can find it for dirt cheap.

I've recently just started composing electronic music but I've been using Fruity Loops and Rebirth. I've been looking at synths for a while now and I've narrowed my choices down between the 303 and JX-305. I'm rather interested in the 303 cos of its price and ease of use, but what do you all think? Thanx.

Hey Micro!! Yes the memory sucks, but if you pick up a cheap sequencer, like an Alesis MMT-8 or a Kawai Q80 (with disk drive included), you can do amazing things with the MC-303. And they are easy to use live, very powerful devices yet not too much $$. For maybe $100-$150, you'd be set Dude! Peace ON!!!

This machine is awesome when it comes to sounds. But it stinks BIG-TIME as far as memory goes. As soon as i wanted to program about 10-20 of my own rhythm patterns, i'd have to start deleting older ones. Some of my patterns were more complex than the pre-sets and this is why i was experiencing memory errors. Roland obviously realized this drawback; just look at the MC-505. It has a slot for memory cards!! So, in order to maximize it's potential, one would have to have an external sequencer. No good for the DJ who wants to hook it up to their mixer. Lastly, the tap feature for tempo worked very poorly.
