I have never used the MC-303, but apparently it doesn't sound much like a TB...? Well to all of you who suggested buying ReBirth, I must agree it's a great program, but......... $179 for a TB emulator?????????????? Tweaking knobs with a mouse is NOT FUN, especially when performing. The only advantage I can see is that it gives you 2 TB's at a time to mess with. This is totally outweighed by the MASSIVELY uncool mouse-computer interface. Yeah, it sounds great but you just can't control it the way you can with a hands-on machine. I know TB's are real expensive, and I know this has been suggested before, but Syntecno makes a TOTALLY FUCKING AWESOME TB clone called TeeBee. My friend has one, and I plan to get one ASAP!!! Just like TB, but with more waveforms, MIDI stuff, and more bellz'n'whistles. SOUNDS GREAT THOUGH!! Well thats my 2 bitz. BTW if there is anyway to control ReBirth without a mouse, let me know! (can you use an external trigger...?)

this little silver box is my first piece of equipment and I just love it!! OK, it is a bit difficult to use with midi and changing sounds is limited, but for a small price you get an INCREDIBLE drummachine, sequencer and a small synth. but when you're too stupid to make good music (techno) with it, don't blame the machine! Just buy a sampler and make songs from those 'original' sample CD's.

First of all, there is alot of hype about this machine. People try to compare it to the TB-303, and the truth is, it's not! It's a completely different animal. It is not trying to replace the TB, or even imitate it. It is trying to be itself, which it does quite well. I use it for several applications in my home studio: Midi it to my sequencer and use it as a drum machine...use the loops to get a beat going, or even program a user pattern from scratch. Once you get the hang of programming on it, it's fairly easy to use. The onboard effects are a plus. I love sequencing in step time...i love the sound of arpeggiated bass lines, so the machine is excellent for me. It has a few drawbacks, mainly...no multiple outputs; also, some of the factory presets are pretty weak. alot of them sound the same, but there are a few good ones. the overall sound quality is pretty good, but it could use some beefing, or more "analogness" The bass in my Juno 106 is far superior in terms of speaker-tweaking resonance, but the MC is not bad. I am curious to see what roland will do with the 505 (in terms of sounds) after they undoubtedly read the feedback about the 303, and made improvements based on user likes/dislikes. Bottom line: A very well designed, multi purpose sequencer/drum machine. Props to Roland for continuing to inovate in the field of electronic music. -daniel tashian

I do not use this box sequencer.

I have experience with it in gigs. I used cheap MIDI keyboard to control MC303:

to switch from one to another voice I needed to press only one key on MC. The

same thing with switching between songs: I used sequencer only for preprogramming

voices.

The best way to use MC303 is: select in your computer sequencer patch &quot;Normal TB&quot;,

run groovebox thru overdrive and use realtime knobs. MC-303 Very interesting sample player.
