" Still valid"

Roland MC-500 MkIIPublié le 10/08/13 à 11:08

As the syncro Roland is the basis of MIDI, you could say that this is the matrix sequencer for all sequencers to come.

UTILIZATION

Connection with the previous opinion, but floppy disks, can be found on the internet. Note that this machine dates from the time when a lot of people could still read music: for adventurers, 13/8 or even 23/7, the machine is willing, we must look in recent productions to find as broadminded. You can really have fun with the DC, everything is there that is more PC, apart from being busy ten things at once, and you'll burn your eyes? So: comprehensive, easy to use.

SOUNDS

No sounds in a sequencer. But a keyboard like the old PC keyboards that can hit like crazy without damaging the switches that are under it.

OVERALL OPINION

Bought shortly after my TR707, I always both. Around 2005, I bought a Fantom Xa, which contains ... the same sequencer, with very few differences, the most important being the loop recording, which is not possible on the MC-500 (read only). But as I recently purchased two Akai S5000, I wanted to test a more open configuration to each his sequencer! Via my patchbay MIDI master keyboard remains, the MC-500 receives and I can decide (or not) to synchronize. Indestructible, he started with a quarter turn after a few years in its box. We grow old together.

Advantages:
8 tracks of 16 MIDI channels each, 2 MIDI Out (what makes the diffrence! Two chains of synths possible to take advantage of the 16 channels per track) 1In, 1Thru.
The recording time is possible without rel automatic quantification, leaving live recordings.
A segment in CONTRL ddi of percussion sounds allows the programming of internal rhythm in a box MC500, CONTRL sounds from external sources (keyboard, sampler, ...)
Inconvnients:
DKT backup, and load 2 or 3 simultaneous track only (so slow loading at a concert, prvoir filling sound during this time, or a module player midi file support pr MC500 instead)

SOUNDS

Even more of: not in the edition not MIDI Controller (eg sustain guitar / bass, on / off of the arpeggiator ,...), edition of VLOC by% (eg, fade in / fade out for an entire song)

OVERALL OPINION

1989. Still no problem with ... That's when the only squenceur holding the game live as is, without quantifying binding. The only problem is the backup DKT DD (stock not find u feat ...) and the little piece loaded simultaneously (problmatique for concerts). Indeed, the post of vnements shipping (transportation of parts, change channels, ...) application software loading DIFFERENT alternatively used depending on the function, which takes time, and the edition can apparatre long sometimes. However, the latency time is a good inspiration rflexion conducive to respect the following opration make the song ...
