Roland MC-202
Mini mono synth Anloga mid 80's near the 101 sh


Easy to ACCS for changes in ral time against the squenceur is a real head-taking
The groove is nice


The synthse is limited but the sound is punchy, fairly round


I used it primarily as a sequencer for analog machines to get an old school groove
I new fields to search

Ngatif point: the mini keyboard is really cheap trs.
The form of fader controllers are quite nice, easy to handle, it can be used like a cross fader mixer hiphop to modulate the sound, trs fun.


The edition of his live is very simple, just play with the faders! on the other hand, without knowing the beast, it is easy to "get lost", but at the same time, that's how I found my best patches.
As against the use of squenceur trs is making head, my personal, I dropped prfrant much use live.


It's going to infrabass the shrill bleep, to a sound close to a trs acid 303.
DIFFERENT playing with parameters, the sound palette is very broad
Personally I use it coupled with an old guitar multi-effects (Boss ME8) and your exact vritablement is explosive.
I use it live with a group instead psycherock, as well as studio projects for electro and hiphop.
The overall sound of the 202 is all the same rather aggressive


I've had 3-4 years and I never tire of playing with, I still discovering new sounds.
I do not like the sequencer, too ugly to use a machine without memory!
But using live, my god it's good, ARAG quarter-turn, yells, grsille, twists in all directions, while being able to be mild, with sonnorits close to an organ (cheap of course!)
To make sounds (percussion, analog bleep, etc) she is doing well too trs.
I bought 300 euros the era, and I do not really regret, and I would do without hsiter this purchase!

The controllers are complete and effective connectivity is trs complte Exceeds but a bit today (cv / gate, DIN sync, tape ...).
MIDI is not original but not install it as I did, well Obviously a difference!
The sounds that can be drawn are quite simple but well made, the dynamics are as good on most analog.


Use of squenceur is a disaster if you're used LOGIC or other soft!
But even comparing hardware sequencers is in fact the programming mode is catastrophic, but it seems that one can CRER tubes techno by typing notes at random!
The manual is clear and complete, but what a squence To create complexity, makes it the best back up a MIDI and the kit you can enjoy the quality of synthtiseur and forget squenceur .


The TRS is part of the classic but still enjoyable program.
The bass is deep and trs leads are fine, so it is complete but less monophonic typ That a TB-303 for example.
Dja has no effect trs sounds good and thanks to the LFO modulation capabilities, but it's even more funky!


I use this synth for 3 years and 4 months with MIDI and well recess I would advise all users of the team as well.
For me the synth part is really good and all just trs Funky, however the game is anything but music sequencer and intuitive (I do not like the sequencer TB-303). I m'tonne its always cte as low considering its quality and rarity as only 4000 t pices have built the era ...

This machine sounds (not in, otherwise go to another site) of pure strain annalogique. for users to plug ins or other m ... computer objects that want to use buttons other than their girlfriend or laptop, this is where it goes.
ouscillo two most used a sub at the same time (big sound !!!!) ensured that you can choose the envelope with hauteur.un vcf assignable to either filter or VCO (ADSR, envelope, if you can ue ceq it, stay on logic). lfo with a frequency modulation tions allowing enough grin. for the connection, hit the road jack !!!!, not noon but the dcb (for sinchro with 808, bassline, TR909, Jupiter 8, etc. ....) Polyphony: Corsica (not kidding !!!!) monophonic obviously.


Setup is simple and clear, almost one button function.
Editing sounds easier for those who know the analog
The manual is clear when you look at the light (mdr!!) Kidding


For one of the world's smallest synths, it's the safe bougre.des well phat bass or leads of killers, sweeps the air, the foo (not a pardon is me!)
certainly not realistic sounds but I do not give.
its expression is good (mine I do not ....) sasi
edition of the sequences is as a bassline on a bit daunting at first but much more interresting That a common soft. Another undeniable atotu machine you control another synth roland (with CV / gate) through the sequenceur.Pour who would take me a cretin ( thank you) know that you can Save the sequences ( donns not the sound) using a sampler by connecting it to the place of the magneto MC202.


For almost ten years now that I use and I'm not ready to sell it.
it runs on battery.
I do it again this choice without hesitate
