is it worth to buy the new mc-505 if i already have the mc-303 since one year and a half?. i am bored of the sounds, i enjoy playing the mc-303 but i cosider more something you can fun with it but not something you with you can make good music with it. Are the sounds of the new groovebox better?, can edit individually each drum instrument?, can you add it more sounds?.

I have both the MC 303 and MC 505...Let me tell you something..all who sit on their ass and say, this sucks or that sucks, it cant do this or do that...quit being HATERS!!!! I would like to see your "cubase-ass" or "cakewalk-cuts" played... ..."LIVE"... on stage, imagine you and your monitor up on stage with your fucking mouse in your hand...and all you do is click one button..and everything goes to auto pilot....weak! First of all these machines are designed to be able to manipulate sounds..LIVE! on the fly...in REAL-TIME! ANYONE can sit at a computer and "make" electronic music...what happens when someone wants to see you play it live? "Milli-Vanilli anybody?" If you want to start your creative juices going and dont want to "sit" in front of a computer to make music...these machine are a great place to let some of your thoughts go....THEY DO NOT DO EVERY THING!! ..but they are probably real close...beginners----stick with the MC303 (they are getting very affordable) dont even think of trying to figure out how to run the MC505 if you dont know what an LFO is. Those of you that have been doing this for a while....throw a "LIVE" flavor into your mix! The MC505 is up there right in the thick of shit with the rest of your gear. To all remember...there is not ONE piece of equipment out that will do it all..however the Roland Groove series are a great line of equipment to do what you want......YOU WANT! So if you want to blame your UN-creativness on ANY equipment.....quit being a hater and go back to your computer and sequence somthing plastic! JKP!

I use the MC-303 as a drum machine. It works great in this role. The synth samples are a little muddy sounding and the filter doesn't growl. However the sequencer is fun and easy to use. I link it up to my Alpha Juno and use that for my bass lines and lead synth sounds. The MC-303's synth samples are good background stuff but really should not be used as leads. I give it a 4 for the drum sounds and the sequencer. Check out my web page it has more info on the box: www.vt.edu:10021/D/drmartin/

For people who wonder about buying one: DON'T ! Save your money to buy something serious! It speaks for itself... All in one box for less than $700, ofcourse it has to SUCK! Listening to it at the store, it convinces you that it is a good buy! DON'T let the store fool you!!! IT SUCKS!! Ofcourse you could use it for the drums, that sounds ok, but cum'on you can get better drummachines for less money!! DO NOT belive that the MC303 can emulate the TB303, it isn't even close !! Tweaking the MC makes you cry!! Get a cheap sampler (Emax 1, AkaiS1000 etc. for $300-$700) use the web to get sounds, get a cheap drummachine (or even Software drums), and you're WAY of head of all the MC303 users!!! Mix this with Propellerheads 'Rebirth RB-338' (less than $200) and you can do some serious music !!

I mostly use it to make ambient music, and i can say it sounds much better as an ambient music machine than an acid one. This machine realy has a special character i like. I still have as much fun 1 year after i got it.
