    Roland groovebox.
    At the time of its release, pubs announced: TB303 republication, that's why I bought it new at its output for about 3.500frs (500 €).
    Facade solid scrap iron knob that breaks against which crachotte. Nickname keyboard with rubber rubber that does not take the year (classic Roland). a dual 7-segment LED display.

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple, turn the knobs to modify some parameters, jog to chain sequences, one tries to play the keyboard and that's it.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds, ...! Some bass sounds and synths exploitable, otherwise the rest is awful, stained (not the right way), and soulless.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds, ...! Some bass sounds and synths exploitable, otherwise the rest is awful, stained (not the right way), and soulless.
    Integrated sequences, I did not find anything extraordinnaire, it makes the sequences and the final result looks like demos found over much of the range of Roland keyboard without interest!
    The effects do well their work, but when it's ugly at first, the magic can not operate.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I kept for years in a closet. From time to time I ressortais for the few minutes of the time the weather improves, but she left on the shelf as fast as I'd exit.
    I traded against something else and I do not regret it at all.
    This is MY OPINION, I know that musicians are enjoying it, I have much preferred electribe Korg, everyone's tastes.
    It's clear that I do not rachèterais the MC303, for against TB> 303, so I will buy this one day!

    Parcontre drum kits are almost the same we hear in the sequencer or digital synthesizers actuels.C is not realistic at all and we know it is not the goal!
    The effects are very good especially the reverb and delay it gives color to the sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about a week and I have my sequence with synthesizers and the result is acceptable.
    I do not like its interface specially but considering its age it's normal since today is the tape to the eye works and proffessionalisme pass from behind!
    But its interface is very complete much I appreciate all potentionmetres on the 303 is probably the most complete machine that I had in my mains.J 've had one for a few months but it had MC808 sounds more modern but they were untouchable without computer so I had less fun to play with even if it was more complete on paper and with this one I ordi.Que progresses faster and is more intuitive and the relationship between man machine fills. A simple beat us very far away enmene even for me it is a must to be able to touch her without pressing stop.
    I tried the korg emx 1, and although it sounds more possaidait his recent mono blocking me serious because I love rocking my own chords and make a minor chord on three tracks off it is not for the moi.Je 'I had for 130 euros I do not regret my choice and I was very lucky that it is in very good condition no scratches no screen or other picnic.
    And I'm happy to have a collector in the first celebrity groovebox and I understand why she made a full house and I do not revendrais pas.Car it is small it does not take place and the result is effective field is produced quickly with the sounds of hell but some criticize the pick of all of these machines on the market that has people who criticize even the next release this année.Mais I have had a few years ca I have previously great Kiffe
    It should not be too demanding that n (is not synthe jupiter or spectralis but rather a proper synth with a sequencer of fou.Qu we either techno or hip hop can easily make good delires in minutes on sounds retro Surtour if we want to deepen the warmth of presets.
    And no it does not age as ca the 303 proof is still talking about it and it is sold and purchased while some models that are less than 10 years to oblivion.
    Now I have a mad desire to know the 505 ...

    Groove Box with effects (chorus, reverb, delay). MIDI in and out. audio output (2 x mono).

    UTILIZATION

    Operation is super simple and complete. The functions are easily accessible. This is a really well thought out machine. The manual is Sufis.
    Unfortunately innefficace MIDI in a PC integration.

    SOUNDS

    The sound was really good for that time and are are quite flexible. (Filter, LFO, envelope). To date it could still be useful if she behaved better with a pc. The effects are small but really good.

    Purchased OCASI there fifteen years, this machine has really been very useful. She taught me a lot too. I still love her and I am disappointed at not being able to integrate better in a set up with PC. I bought 15,000 FB (350 €) and for that price I would do certainly the choice. I can not find anything equivalent from the point of view of efficiency to date. (I find the same ELEKTRON toneau but it seems very fragile for the price).

    Of Manir overall, the Groovebox MC-303 can be used in two modes:
    - A normal mode to the ACCS all buttons, ideal for live;
    - A mode expander. The latter is used to control the MC-303 from an external sequencer. Attention in this case, all Real Time Controller is inactive.

    The polyphony is, of memory, 28 channels ... That little bit trs for a machine of '90, especially when used in expander mode!

    INTERESTED Caractrisque for the occasion: it is not compatible GM / XG. Roland has focused on sound for Dance. He does not waste memory with pseudo-acoustic sounds inintressants.

    INTERESTED Caractrisque for the occasion: it is not compatible GM / XG. Roland has focused on sound for Dance. He does not waste memory with pseudo-acoustic sounds inintressants.

    UTILIZATION

    The big problem (as Roland partially rsolu with the MC-505) is the impossibility to use the Real Time Controller mode expander.

    The normal mode gre not a MIDI channel in between. Unable to send multiple intruments time.

    Expander mode, it will be necessary to program all the changes paramtres 'his' (in SysEx please) ... or acqurir module CONTRL spar.

    SOUNDS

    The MC-303 has a good range of sounds good trs good quality (mainly electronic sounds). They are, however, Aging, and the possibility of shipping is low.

    Dance machine requires many samples have t Reboost for the occasion. N'esprez not find the sounds of TR-606 or 909 as is! And not content with that, Roland put the rear of the machine allowing a potentiomtre add yet serious.

    Powerful filters allow the MC-303 INTERESTED effects in real time. Be careful not exploded membranes utiliss pregnant when the extreme ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    Let sincre: is it really worth it was worth was to line the store to get one?

    Yes, the innovative concept silent (for those not VCU in the late 70s) ...
    Yes, the rhythmic taient powerful as was the music beginners '90 ...
    Yes, the real time to play with the sounds as they could not manage more recent years.

    But it is a machine that quickly shows its limits in a (home) studio, along with a host of other instruments. It regrets in particular weaknesses in MIDI (1 channel in normal mode, 8-channel mode module) and the polyphony of 16 voices.

    It remains true that the sounds are not ditables itself: the only change possible until the effects of playing. It would still apprci even a little more flexibility. But n'tait not the primary goal: we have here first a squenceur not a synthtiseur ...

    UTILIZATION

    One branch is lit, we play ... Difficult to make simple
    The manual is clear enough, it's Roland So here you go ...
    For use as the majority of products This category, some functions can be accessed in "gas factory" ... This is unavoidable, given the compactness of the bte. Tight deadlines, the small keyboard sduit me.

    SOUNDS

    Roland quality ... We have a 808, a 909, the percussion dance / techno / DnB, low abundance, the synths and effects, all embedded in a gray bobotie. Add the effects Intgr and have fun! As I said above, it is sufficient for use in models. I think it's a good little expander / squenceur. And the era, simply a c'tait rvolution!

    OVERALL OPINION

    In addition to two years of loyal service, my MC-303 has never made default. Bought a nearly new friend mticuleux, I claim today, simply because I made only on PC. I have no longer the usefulness ... but I do not regret my purchase srement.

    The MC303 has trs sounds especially good set of percussion that versatility Dance, Hip Hop, Techno commercial brief instruments and a few dishes and dpasss Mazis that remain of a good quality in terms of quality breeding and game

    SOUNDS

    Like I said the sound bank even if it is big APRS Courage Fully accessible midi is basic but effective, I use it after 5 years of use as a box rhythm complter is a set of analog synths and sound modules, I frankly set prfre Linn, Cr78, SERIES 808, 909 of MC303 from certain combinations included on other machines A good thing about it is the MC303 Boost knob is derrire that restores the warmth of the sound a bit like the analog of a sudden sounds better and so much more human than those plugins that have clogged your PC and suddenly the sound is flat and mchamment mtalliques with Dsp coming all eat the sound spectrum.
    Ditto for the VLOC I program Pc, there's way to delve into the Controller is not bad, it's true that it is a more rcuprer a Controller direct knob on a kind of keyboard matre such as a simple USB Evolution for example, the blow can feel something of this machine

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been 5 years that I have, I do not spare, I like the boil and finish and strength remains in the picture Roland trs so right
    On other models Yeah, so I do not like the Mc505, the 909 too CHRE of Roland I have other machines as a Jv1080 ​​a U220, a synth Juno Alpha 1 is true I return to their old machines, complications set in performance and the start but its really correct, Roland can do great things on the issue, I said nothing about the latest in expanders them instead if I had the chance to test one of the last, I will purchase with Roland because I know what I expected but the machines like groovebox goes around that if we stay on this interface blow is worth more to widen the scope of the CONTRL mninges and Russia while the Pc, complicated but when it works it gnial ...

    - Manuel clear enough, it's OK.

    Once the pattern prt, there's more that tweaker with the knobs. This machine has a pretty good grip (ok, it's not a electribe but ...)

    SOUNDS

    - For the sounds, rhythms are nice kits, used in the electro broad, hip / hop rnb also my opinion (although this is not my thing).
    - It's Roland, so often heard, but good quality.
    - The effects are bad I think.

    I like the rhythm kits, used in just any style of electro, the other sounds, it's not that they are wrong is a matter of taste, as some had me going, as , y 'I have not see the use.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - I used a year before selling it to the MC 505.
    - I have AIM its handling relatively comfortable if we dive a bit in the manual (c'tait Premire my machine, and I quickly played around with trs). The arpgiateur very nice too.
    - I never touch a machine in my life, c'tait the only one I could afford so ...
    - The opportunity to 150-200 euro does it well.
    - If I had the place and money to spare, I repeat to a certain percussion sounds and some that j'apprciais gnralistes.

    I get carried away a bit on the scoring, but nostalgia requires one hand, and secondly, I find that he shit on it too, is the ancestor of groovebox, then respect; )

    I did that for two days, it's my toy, I have yet to master everything I bought for use in Live, or editing home studio, history of giving back some oldies rhythm, or to a rhythmic swing between two titles, but I noticed that even some effects are not so bad, (explosion, siRNA, human voice, etc ... ), in short connecting an amplifier, the fact is, trs simple to use, good sound, the arpgiateur is not bad, an envelope, the only "default"; squenceur , but I added a, and a bit of breath in the cost but an ending for his little friend will arrive in order to remdier. Excellent machine for my part I use it in DJing and I think if it's made me, I would resume the same. Please note this machine will soon be a collector.

    Default key (but considering the price is all normal): a single output for the entire stro machine, which does not allow much in the mix below ...
    Few changes of possible sounds, these are banks.
    No sampler.

    It is a machine that can run completely indpendemment, trs fun, a little lgre Facilities in even when ...
    For a groove machine, it is well equipped though!

    UTILIZATION

    Setting a bit to dpart Drout, especially if you used to work on squenceurs software (Cubase, Logic, etc. ...), it is not intuitive forcment trs. Original, anyway!

    Manuel damn good, easy to follow, useful for dipping.

    Manuel damn good, easy to follow, useful for dipping.

    SOUNDS

    Sound banks from the worship of machines and Techno House (Roland TR and TB, Juno, SH, etc. ...). So sounds trs trs brands and heard many old-school. Remember!
    For rhythms kicks, hi-hats, crash, snare drums, toms, sound effects: sounds indestructible.
    For sounds mlodiques: ground a little cheap, but good TB-303 sounds that can make her scream with the cut-off by taking as a pioneer of Acid House!
    These banks, therefore almost impossible to change them fundamentally.

    However, the sound is amazingly pure and powerful machine for this price (even when adding compression to heat).

    I like to use this machine as a conventional sound expander (effective from 1980 in 1995 approximately), always nice when you make electronic music: it's like the guitar when you do Rock, quite indispensable !

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for three months, I love as I said use it as a bank of old-school sounds.
    I do not use the squenceur a little complicated and not intuitive trs I prfre control everything with Cubase.
    I plan to purchase a box exprimentale rhythms in the coming months, to sound more personal, but I will continue to use the kits of the MC-303
    Secondhand pays 150 euros, compared satisfaction-ultimate price!
    With exprience, I probably do it again this election, and even if I possde machines much more high-tech, modern and onreuses, a BAR Roland is the basis, right?

    Said, I could not do better.
    It's a nice little machine, light, and does his age on the details, especially the LCD clock radio type (awful).
    I use it to play rock (surprising I know), controlled by a midi keyboard as a synthesizer or a expedeur. So I could not learn about the capabilities of the sequencer, but a friend of mine was able to get some beautiful rhythms, very rock elsewhere, as well as Elektro.
    Even against a machine's job very interesting and rewarding.

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple. I have not even felt the need to read the manual to use it, and yet God knows that the machines and I are not great friends. However I did not delve into the use of sequencers and drum …

    Very simple. I have not even felt the need to read the manual to use it, and yet God knows that the machines and I are not great friends. However I did not delve into the use of sequencers and drum machines, but I was able to operate the arpeggiator instinctively. Nothing but that I already had a ball while the rest ....

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are very typical techno-trance beginning 90. It's quite annoying. But there are still many beautiful things. Two or three fairly realistic and expressive pianos, some organs, some tablecloths, various noises. Some sounds are missing heat but mixed with other sounds from other keyboards and various instruments live, they gain credibility.

    OVERALL OPINION

    As I said, I use it as qu'expandeur for elektro-rock sound, and I really have fun with. It produces remarkable effects, and brings a synthetic magic mail to all. I am very happy.
    Kinks:
    mini keyboard ugly, uninteresting and not practical.
    A breath sometimes unintended startup.
    Some of the lead that work poorly (like glitter ARP type, which is very disappointing)
    Sometimes sounds very artificial and synthetic.
    But it is true that the uses it against employment but even so it is very effective in terms of a further guarantee of credibility.
    A consultant so if you want to play at a lower price and you do not find the king of synth but just to make the most of the mini mum.
