Wow! I've never seen such a bunch of whining, spoilt, "I want more, more, more", pretending to be producers, non instrument playing, dejaying brats together, commenting on a simple box. Have you ever thought about it, that you may lack some skills, when it comes to making music? I just wanted to read some comments before I was going to pick up one of these MC-303s. People comparring this thing to a Waldorf Waveterm, or a Pulse+ even. Are you out of your mind? Do you know the price difference? Now I'm definitally going to pick one of them up, second hand. For what it's worth, it's an instrument. Not a "push this button and push that button and it will do the magic" gear. You need to play it. A guitar only produces also one sound, UNTIL you start playing it. Why not put this thing through some stompboxes, just like you would a guitar. Use your imagination, would-be producers. And those dejays that are always nicking other's tricks, use your imagination. Even a Korg Triton has it's limitations; can't do granular synthesis and can't boil me a pot of coffee, :-). Yoonchi.

I enjoy my MC-303. I read every forum post on here about it and it seems 30/70 (against).

For something made back in 1996, sure it's not going to compare to anything new out there but what it all comes down to is the person behind the machine and what innovative music you can produce with it.

I use it along with my Electribes and the MC-303 has some pretty cool grooves and beats to it. Sure, many of the sounds are updated but again, it depends on the person if they can use it to their advantage.

Last, shop around. I wouldn't pay full price for it because you can get a Korg EM-1 or something else.

All You Euro-trash flamers. I have been an artist from Detroit for 18 years. Hey didn't Detroit start techno. Anyone who says any instrument can't be used by itself has some serious inferiority problems. My balls slapping against your chin can be an instrument by itself(it’s not the instrument, it’s the asshole behind it). Great instrument for people with lots of CREATIVITY and a LIMITED BUDGET. I give lessons with it and the response is great. still use it myself in all my sets. It lays a great foundation and underlies most of my repetitive Detroit Tech beats (English hate repetitiveness, it confuses them that’s why they made house out of techno) but it derails the beats great. A must have for any techno enthusiast or beginner

I just picked my 303 used. I should tell you this is my first "box" so I'm new to the game. I find myself reading the manual more than most of my textbooks when I was in school...rather deep. I agree the sounds are very limited but with the step sequencing I am just now starting to pound out some hip-hop beats which is what I primarily listen to. I hope to buy a sampler to link to it and get some better things happening. It took me 4 years to get good at guitar so I don't expect to master these kinds of instruments overnight either.....peace

I bid on my 303 on e-bay and got it for about $200 plus shipping and I have absolutely no regrets. I've been running it thru my bass amp and those drum sounds'll knock you flat! Fun fun fun. Haven't had any problems with the sequencer, it's kinda hard to use though--step recording is mind-boggling at first, but gets a bit easier in time. Most of the presets seem outdated, but there's still lots of fun sounds to use.
