MC 707 / 101 : New Roland Grooveboxes

That mc-707… given how much fun I have already with my TR-8S… I can feel the GAS…

Hooooo, the new MC line might be just what I’m looking for!

It has the sounds of legendary Roland rhythm machines and synthesizers that are the foundation of electronic music—including the TR-808, TR-909, TB-303, JUNO-106, and SH-101.

And here we go again… :rofl:

The question is… ACB models or shitty samples ?

Christ! that has to be one of the shittest demo tunes ever. Or should that be “eva” to be more fitting with the music

That MC-707 looks like a bit of a rival to the octatrack…

Not sure about this… the OT is on a category of its own. More like a Toraiz rival to me.

Indeed, shitty video like always. Luckily I can see beyond that.

want to know how much synthesis is possible in the grooveboxes.
The jupiter x/xm is also interesting. was very interested in the system 8. these might even be better

they only write about drum, tone and user sample.
What is drum and tone? Samples or synthesis? Both?
Can’t watch the videos right now :slight_smile:
