dollarex's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland MC-50
Yeah ...


Not too difficult to use


No sound


A sequencer which is proven but rather opts for roland mv 30, he expander (sound rs type pcm u20 or d70) + a very good sequencer! P

Dilem39's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" efficient and ergonomic"

Roland MC-50
Note 2 midi OUT


OK Manual

I tried to free myself from the computer and it is on track. Opportunity to play live then send pre-recorded elements with great ease (choice channels are easy to implement with a free hand)


no opinion


used for 2 years in small doses most of the work has not started

very good value for money

charlesandre's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" always helpful, will always ..."

Roland MC-50
audio = none except for the click of registration
MIDI out = IN to read sequences to save THROU as indicated (through)

no effect section, but can adjust the volume, pan, chorus, reverb and delay or expander synthesizer sounds manager

It is simply an event recorder (high notes) rythmix etc etc. ..
No utility for PC or Mac for very old ... backup floppy disk 3.5 is saying ...
Notes recordable 40,000 songs or 99 paterns .... to save before turning no
Note 7


No, it takes some practice but still simpler than culture KORG
The manual is complete

Yes, follow the manual

Note 7


Everything depends on the box or synth sounds that you use to operate the sound.



since 1990

Yes an Alesis

I thought more like a PC (Cubase etc ...)

It is very old, so about quality / price ratio

For me it is a great tool

mortimer Valla's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a fighter ... a time"

Roland MC-50
MIDI connectors: 2 out, in and thru.
no sound, no effects, it is a pure sequencer. 8 tracks plus a rhythm track.
no editing on any computer on a small LCD display, small ...
15 years ago super sequencer, very complete. but it was 15 years. From any computer that much better, much faster and more ergonomic.


ultra-simple configuration. Functions very easily accessible even in maneuvering the beast every day I could remember all the manipulations common. I was fortunate to have the manual in French. a stone huge but very full and clear.


no sound ... no effect.


I used it from 1996 to about 2004. since he sleeps in a closet. I did not try others. in fact I have a Roland JV35. version over the JV50 (if I remember correctly) included a section taken from the MC50 sequencer. So I completed my JV35 by MC50.
Plus: can be no mixing of genres. sequencer is a point bar. Not stuff that hurts sounds, bad effects and bad sequencer. It makes him very well sequencer.
The least: it is a machine that has more than 15 years ... even if you love vintage, there is no sound there once as we love, no warmth of analog ...
