agreed. Musical spoons are better in this case..had one for about 2 weeks, then became in dire need to sell it or trade it off. utterly, completely useless for writing what i do (synth-pop)and im sure its quite useless for other styles as well.. My god..why ROland oh why?!?!

Well, just picked one up used, and i must say, quite nice for what its worth. I pretty much knew what i would be getting into when i bought this *Groove-box*. And i simply love it. You can throw things together very easily, and quickly, i plan on gigging, using only this (its capable) I get tired of Midi Cords and patchbays once in a while, and i enjoy simplicity. True XoX programming, BUT it isnt quite on the fly. It stutters once in a while, and when you light up a LED, it will have to cycle at least one whole time before it is picked up. I picked mine up because of my ol' Boss Dr550mkII...it had only a MIDI IN to sync up with, so i couldnt get any MIDI messages out of it... Hmmph...plus i didnt like staring at a screen placing tiny dots on tiny squares..I like it simple, push the button and the the LED will make it go off..Most of the sounds....nix that..ALL the sounds (not drums) SUCK bad on here..its quite sad...the drums are awesome though. The filter reminds me of the DJX i once had, it was getting quite powerful when the resonance was all the way up, and the Cutoff was at half a knob turn...but then...the last half of the turn, nothing happens!!, obviously doest squeel or screech like my Jv1080 and Jp8000 (i know i know, what am i doing comparing to those?!)i also hate the LED display..i dont remember what patches are what...goddamnit...oh well.. I give it 5 jus cuz i love the drums and sexy looks!!

More bang for the buck than most machines. I got one when it came out and still use it. The sounds aren't excellent but i learned to make the best out of it. The approach i suggest to techno music is to get less gear and know your gear better. Knowing this box pays off. Definitely recommended to beginners. Weird interface at first but works so well once you know it. All you need to start making electronic music. Notice i said *start*. Very good box for the price, just don't expect miracles!

I have one for six months and its Ok. I've tried my MC on a gig, and it works very good, whatever you choose: RPS, mixing patterns live, or adding bass/acid arpeggiated hooks to the mix. Dont care about that analogue "buy-a-Juno-and-this-is-not-a-TB" snobs and frustrated "Buy-Rebirth!!!" mouseclickers. Control the knobs, go freestyle! Dont care about the disadvantages (crappy MIDI control, only one output, lots of crappy presets etc.), think about the cool features you get for just a few bucks: very good drum programming, cool quantizing options, superb arpeggiator which can control other devices via Midi Out, realtime part muting, etc. Recommended for beginners and everyone who wants to go live on stage with techno/house/drum'nbass/whatever shit. Peace, FaTaL ErRoR

DONT UNDERRESTIMATE THE POWER OF THE MC-303!
