This machine like a dream come true. Wery trendy sounds. You can forget 808 909 303 and other. This is much better than them all. It is possible to make record with just this!

Yep, it's a toy, but a good one. If you cover some of the sounds in external effects then they can sound OK. Drums are OK, but don't buy it just for that - plenty of cheap drum boxes out there. Effects are worthless, though the chorus can make some of the sounds (slightly) more usable. The arpeggiator is fun. I love the sequencer, no matter what anybody else says. I haven't used it for a year, but will again someday, I'm sure.

HINT: Sometimes when the memory is pretty full then the thing will F*!K UP and you'll lose all your phrase data.... this happens normally when the momory is quite full. OK - hit record twice (to take it into step mode, or some other recording mode - can't remember) record one note and then delete the note. Press stop to come out of recording mode et voila - all your lovely data is back! Maybe this bug was fixed with a later OS.

Hi again,

i have the D2 and believe me: it's the most painful thing on earth to edit this thing. The sounds may be really ok for the price, but programming and editing is horrible. 1000's of hidden funktions in the 3-led-display, no chance to get into it without hard work with the manual. On the other side, i heard lots of ppl telling they programmed their own patterns and sounds without the manual and performed some sessions live with it (i dont believe that to be sencire), so the only advice i can give you ppl out there thinking about buying roland-grooveboxes: at least try them in a shop or somewhere before u buy it. Maby you like it, maby not ! but dont trust the hype and let them fool ya.

so, good luck and have fun (with whatever you choose) tom

The MC303 carved its place in history for sure, however perhaps a more interesting choice in the same price range would be a used but more beefed up Roland D2. It does have the MC505-JX305 engine and that D-Field control surface. Just a thought.

yes, for the $ these go for now, its a STEAL!! no question about that. However, you can also get a lot of other cool kit in the same price range that is cool too, so its all relative to what you like really. the MC303 does have some cool drums in it. Hard to knock something that carries such a steady beat. BUT dont expect the synth engine to drive you wild. It wont.
