ah, almost forgot: don't forget to buy a midi kb for your groovebox! without a midi kb you will have tonz of bizarre sex with your mc-303, trying to play something complex :)

it is a very nice tool for beginners, especially for its price. anyway, it may be toooooo difficult to use for dummies, but... RTFM :). even when you become a professional, don't throw it away out of the window - if you f<censored>k with it for a while, you can pull outta it some nice sounds. i use it as a rhythm machine + bassline - in Russia you can buy a used one for about ~$375 - not too bad for a nice rhythm/bassline! :)

I love this box. Instant dance music. Great bottom end. Reasonable tr-808/909 simulations, nice enough tb-303's , good sounding synths, great effects (love that &quot;vinyl sound&quot;, awesome arpeggiator.

Yup, I've read all the reviews and realize that a lot of people think this is a piece of s___t. Lots of shortcomings : shitty midi, lots of bugs, crappy memory. But once you realize this box is not supposed to be the jack -of -all trades in the studio (why did you buy it in the first place ? get a Trinity or an XP-50 !!), and is not PRICED as such, you learn to accept the limitations.

What it is : an awesome inspirational tool, much more effective than those &quot;inspirational&quot; sample CDs, which can only inspire you to curse your sampler !! Wanna write techno ? The mc does techno. Wanna write jungle ? it does jungle too. Wanna write ?...you get the idea. Case in point : I've been a rocker all my life. But I recently got interested in dance music. So, instead of buying a sampler and tons of sample CDs, I bought a groovebox. Actually ordered it from the US since it's not available here in the Philippines. And know what ? From the songs I wrote using the box, I got myself a record deal !!! Much faster than with my old rock-based set up (JD-800, X5, DR5, Proteus FX). Instant inspiration !!!

And you can still use it in the studio, just set the track outputs to &quot;external&quot; and use better modules, as well as sync other sequencers.

I'm ready to give this box 5 out of 5, but Roland loses points for not enabling the groovebox to be battery powered. Gosh, how can you use the box on the beach, Mr. Roland ?
