I saw my little silver box of tricks in a second-hand shop for about £230.I bought it without hesitation and began the frustrating task of integrating it into my setup.Having very little synth experience, I found getting to grips with it a little confusing at first and as I prefer software sequencing, was beginning to wonder if I'd made a wise purchase.

It wasn't long before I was sequencing almost exclusively on the 303, my software sequencer relegated to providing the odd sampled loop or twiddly bit.

However, I don't feel as if it has revolutionised my music-making technique all that much.I had a fair idea what it did before i bought it but overall I must say I'm disappointed.But as a source of ideas and the occasional squidgy riff, it's not let me down yet.

I just wish that in sound module mode, it was a little bit more useful.

This machine requires extensive practice and learning. After awhile I was recording nice fat tracks. I am into acid jazz and funk and love the cheese sounds! Cheese is good! But those same cheddar beats can be fat with a decent amp. i have an old Peavey 4 channel mixer with equalizer. I pump up the bass as well as the bass knob on the 303 and DAMN it sounds good. I think that these little machines will be a favorite for future beat heads not yet born. I would love to use just the MC303 exclusivly. Just me and a little box and a inexpensive controller. I guess the reason why I get so much out of it is because I actually know how to play. I perform jazzrock and funk with a band on my Yamaha cp25. Iwanted to be able to do some solo stuff and bust out on some rhymes like the old school beastie days and it is perfect for that. If you want to make music that requires no effort than hire some musicians in a studio and tell them what you want. It seems silly like Metalheads from the 80's boasting about their new 3000.00 "axe". When at the same time there are metal bands using cheaper equipment and selling way mor albums!

MC303 was my first piece of gear, and I still have it. I don't care what people say about it, it works, and that's enough. Properly used one can make tracks that sound a lot better than the crap currently on airplay, made with gear multiple times the price of the MC303. These are OPINIONS for f***'s sake, don't forget it. If you don't like something, it doesn't mean everyone should dis it. It's your head, others got theirs. My head says MC303 does the job it's meant to.

Music is creation of sound.... Not creation of the clone empire... 80% of people out there actually pay money for tv, sports and material crap to be noticed and feel goood....They are always looking for other peoples pats on the back... The fact is sound is sound it's how you put it togeter... So if your part of the 80% of humans aspiring for the big car and bank book, do what 80% of the people on this page say.. Don't buy it... You "need" better sounding equipment... But if your the 20% that know you can make inspiring music with a crappy acoustic guitar found in the dumpster, get it... To me it's a challenge and I don't want to be a clone and believe bigger is better.. Hey that's the american way right... excesse you get lost in the cracks.. I'd put my sound up to all those idiots who say it... Just the fact of electronic music becoming all digital shows how $%#&ed up our music culture is.. People don't understand what drives music.. It's the feeling... Not the sound... When techno first started, to most it sounded like $^$t. But now the gravy train is taking the ride of their life And the big digital companies are laughing all the way to the bank with your money... Try the mc-303... No instrument saves the world only humans... PS the arpegiator kicks ass if you can actually play a "real" instrument with your freakin fingers... not point and click a mouse or twist sounds already made for you... Hey Mcdonalds all the way.. over 2 billion served haha later on all that know what i'm talking about Gypsee
