Proper groovebox

For MIDI is just fine machine stable.
The effects are digital and banal, as in other equivalent machines. Too bad we can not stack effects. Too bad also that it has no separate outputs. It lacks that ...
Machine with a lot of factory sounds in it, in fact at the time the Roland engineers had taken a 505 and did get in a box of MC303 type, 307. So it's super tight in and maintenance is not easy.
I remember it was released, a lot of guys who could read and had especially consulted the manual came to a complete live with MC307, which was more compact and came in satchel bag.

Machine with a lot of factory sounds in it, in fact at the time the Roland engineers had taken a 505 and did get in a box of MC303 type, 307. So it's super tight in and maintenance is not easy.
I remember it was released, a lot of guys who could read and had especially consulted the manual came to a complete live with MC307, which was more compact and came in satchel bag.
The big advantage of this is its sequencer groove box, yes it is too complicated for neuneus, but who knows how to use it is really effective. There are 2 types of sequencer mode the rec TR (TR classic roland sequencer) and real time (to make patterns on the fly and in real time). I read earlier that someone said the sequencer was crap with buttons and poor. The buttons are plastic and normal like a drum machine, behind the buttons they are switches panasonic evu series, a reference that is found in many other machines and mixers, it is not poor quality.

UTILIZATION

The manual is rather thick, but the machine is pretty intuitive.
It's a groove box, you can make complete tracks with. It lacks a few buttons on the front, takes a little too go into sub menus.
I said that the seq was effective, I will explain the basic principle of a groove, it's actually good to do things quickly. Just take a factory pattern with a nice rhythm, just copy the rhythmic pattern in use. Then look at how this is done rhythmically. Copy paste in several places and make small changes to the TR rec. Then take 2 or 3 sounds, and tamper with them. Then the top is to control a module with analog, put an arpeggio sequencer 307 and play a melody on top of the con with realtime sequencer function. And presto you have laid a piece in minutes.
You can also make your rhythmic AZ sequencer, but it's much longer and ultimately it is perhaps not the spirit of the machine. It is great for the préchié.

SOUNDS

The rhythmic sounds are very good for recorded sounds. TR808 sounds are not bad.
By TB303 against sounds are ridiculous.
Velocity accurately.

OVERALL OPINION

I have since 2007, I have used it once to lay a live fast, I use it little. Let's say I have machines that I want more, but it is perfect for risking his life at parties watered. A good spare.
I also tried vaguely mc909 is the same except that the spirit groovebox 909 is a gas plant.
What I like least is the recorded sounds of TB303, they are really ridiculous, but no more than on the machines of other brands ...
There is a pitch to wedge of vinyl records with, it actually not used much especially at the time was making a case RedSound sync vinyls and noon. (Something that is not sold for that matter) on this roland shot would have been better put other settings accessible from the front instead of the pitch ... then it's a matter of taste, but I in my config I have no need of this pitch
I repeat, but it's a shame that step 8 outputs in the ass for the shares, it would have been more interesting and professional.
It is a now obsolete but is efficient machine. She did not score his time, in 2002 she was on the star catalog music on the same page as the MPC2000 ... Actually roland has occurred after 505 and before 909 This is a middle of groovebox production, it far exceeds the MC303, yet it is the same format. And it is not zero at all.

good groovebox

Roland MC-307Published on 12/29/13 at 11:40

800 sonoritées
40 drum kits (tr 808/909, techno, hardcore, drumandbass etc ...)
240 preset patterns (trance, house, hip hop, g funk, hardcore ...)

multi effects efficace.fonction to grab triggered an effect on the fly.

UTILIZATION

groovebox easy to use when the usual with these machine.
the manual is worthy of the Bible!

SOUNDS

OVERALL OPINION

I kept 1 year and a half and then sold to buy me a new 808 mc.
I had the mc 303 808 mc 505 mc and d2.
307 is a good machine, contrary to the view certains.certe today in 2013 the sounds are a bit outdated (ya just listen to 808 mc which dates from 2006).
307 was released in late 1999 early 2000 for 900euros new (6000frs)
she is quoted 200euros today.
yes I do it again this choice.

STOP! Shame not to open a compressor on the drum section and a small chorus on the lead Młoda .... Only the reverb and delay are cumulative in addition to the effects section.

The TRS is squenceur "mcanique" so that a right prcis and gives a small cot game-boy who does not value the bank's rather nice that Roland offers us here. We must go in the Quantize menu of the machine, to give life to the squence. Plusiurs shuffles modes are available and sounded better right away! The rglages possible are lgion. Twenty pRSET, in addition to SETTING THE timing (shuffle assay will give a little cot-ternary or rather crooked tip) and velocity (which sounds attnue submitted to shuffle). Basically makes a groove and trs trs cohrents music without much effort.

UTILIZATION

Simple configuration, manual effectively. Nothing unusual seen the beast.
The big highlight is the pitch fader right seat of the machine. This is the Roland or made strong and I still do freelance why the Akai MPC does not follow this shma.Enfin if I know, use of audio in real time is a bit more complicated ... Basically, we gre tones and BPM of a pattern or if you want: either one or the other. Listen to a two-tone squence below trs be somewhat inspiring ... Agree on a suspicious sample is a breeze. In short: great tool!

Drum level: you type in real time squence its "kick-snare-hhat" groove and offers you the spares parts: Gnial to make mute!

SOUNDS

The sound library is vast. It's a bit dry as there is not some effects deu.Les electo sounds really cool, too low but the big surprise in the RSID sound bank "orchestral". The choirs are trs trs well made (I still serves rgulirement) some strings do their job, note the "fast attack section" and the flutes are excellent.
Otherwise the drum kits are really fucking the little one a little dirty with the effect LO-FI back correctly. Each kit includes four drum snare and bass drum 4 and leaves enough to find his shoes off.

There are a few pearls. His cot a little bit kitsch sound of madness when used among other synths. Dtourner sounds lead into bass is gniale with this box. The accumulation of TR is 606,707,808,909 trs convincing if we realize that the disks that you hear today just to sound rhythm boxes such as a vintage groove box!

OVERALL OPINION

This is my machine so I Premire speaks with great respect even though I would not do a disc. It was silent for me an essential tool when I got an MPC 2000 XL to orchestrate the samples that I plunder alone, mostly at the pitch fader, which allowed me to put the tonalite 'sample without any problems. The drum kit is not worth the good big wave, but another time I'll pick a snare or a kick. It sounds the framework of Manir ...

She is aging and has some keys do not work, it's not super strong but lightweight feature allows nomadic quiet and allows sessions to be down on your knees headset mode is pimpronelle sofa while watching her small "mentalist!"
