Yes, RubaDubbaDuba, I agree. You are speaking some wisdom. The MC303 has been picked on by a lot of dummies who dont even know what it can do.

This machine is WAY UNDER-RATED!! for the money it is a DREAM for a real musician. The creative posibilities are truly endless. For the gear junkie who needs to stroke his ego always with new gear --the latest--the greatest--then maybe this is outdated. But for a musician with lots of ideas this is a wonderful simple sketchpad. To bash such a fine and simple inexpensive and powerful piece of gear is ludicrous and stupid.

Some of the best quitarists in the world play shit guitars not even worth $200---some need the $8000 piece of ax to convince themselves of their potency as a musician. Is it the guitar? or the player? personally, I have been doing music for over 40 years---it is my life---and believe me, it aint the gear----its the player--always the player. The gear is merely a prop. If you know some something about music, you appreciate any type of gear that opens peoples musical horizons and the MC303 has done that for many people. So stop trashing it and try to appreciate the power in this awesome unit....what it CAN do....not what it cant do. It is a brilliant machine for the $$

Why attack something because it is not like something else...? Why not attack its limitations, and not compare it to something ten times the price?

Yes I agree the sounds are most well.. shite muslims..

But this is a great and fast sequencer and a very capable drum machine, to say it's limited well, is foolish beause there is litrerally hundreds of things this machine can be used for. I think the complex nature of the machine is more than you can handle, and you we're probably turned off enough by this to bag the whole machine.. In a 2words: short sighted... To say it's limited is pure rubbish, in terms of synth sounds yes, but there are 10+ usable drum kits and a great step sequencer, with more instruments the possibillites are unlimited. Tunnel vision isn't a good thing nor is belieiving the hype you sheep..

My 2 cents, 4 marks out 5 -- independent outs and track sliders (aka. 505) would've made this a killer machine but now it's so cheap what the heck just get one and please learn how to use it before you bash it..

You what? from Mars (like everyone else here) writes:
Can`t help but think after seeing what you people are writing about this box (taking just one of the many ludicrous examples: "...quite possibly one of the best drum machines out there....") that most of you don`t have a great deal of experience with music making equipment (and I know y`all gonna pretend you do, now tha I`ve said that).

This is a VERY limited box.

Y`all entitled to your opinion (please note I haven`t sank so low as to give this thing a low score) but I find this all quite disturbing.

Thankyou.

Oh and btw, here are the cakewalk settings to recieve a bulk-dump from the MC-303 (Yay! Userspace! Yay!)

Cakewalk Settings for BulkDump The following settings are known to work within Cakewalk for downloading the MC303's internal memory: [Options] SysxSendPacketSize=256 SysxSendDelayMsecs=400 LocalOnPort=-1

[MIDI Output Devices] 0=Roland MPU-401 MaxOutPort=0

[MIDI Input Devices] 0=Roland MPU-401 MaxInPort=0

That was taken from the MC303 site... Though it says that it'll take approximately 10 minutes (not three like the manual says... Time to watch some TV then...)
