Roland MC-505Published on 10/31/08 at 16:00
All the features you'll need. Only thing it could use is a graphic interference, an updated Smartmedia drive, and USB. But those are for todays standards, when it was introduced this thing was hott!!

Price paid

300

UTILIZATION

Step Sequence is a little complicated, easy if your used to text sequencers, hard if your used to graphics. Other than that Cake.

Built very well, my original broke. mother board straight in half. But overall pretty Duriable

SOUNDS

All of Rolands classic sound in one place.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought 2 of these, this was the first machine I ever bought, still use it to this day. Great for melodies, espeiclly for basslines.

Some features are I still use today and the drum mutes is something that I wish more synths had. Great tweakability with each track. Can really morph a synth quick.

1165 USD

UTILIZATION

After a month of getting to know it, all basic features were a breeze. Took a lil while longer to get the real complex techniques down.

There is one knob that needs replacing only due to my own fault. Other than that, pretty sturdy machine.

SOUNDS

Great Sounds at the time. Though the drums did get old after a few uses of the same kits. Fun to tweak though.

OVERALL OPINION

I give it an eleven.

I find the kits trsrussis. in 5 minutes, I had good rhythm and corresponding invoices that I had in my head.

trs of good bass and good sound super cheap.

It rolls and can quickly dial in short what I wanted!

etrnagement the MC is a good expander (mconnu and not char) and comes complete my set up rack already provided.

OVERALL OPINION

I tried a lot of MODELS, the MPC, the Elektron, but I tried something the TR.

Roland really, despite a number of constraints, makes good trs machines like that.

The +: the step sequencing, sounds, - shall mean the wait for a pattern to go another.

for 130 euros, you can not do better I think. I think this machine will skyrocket in the near future occasion.
