Roland MC-303 'Groovebox'|
In the '80s, Roland shaped the face of techno and hip-hop with legendary instruments including the TR-808 and TR-909,
as well as the TB-303. Later Roland introduced the MC-303 and MC-505 Grooveboxes,
the SP-808 Groove Sampler, the JX-305 GrooveSynth, the DJ-2000 Professional DJ Mixer and the DR-202 Dr. Groove.
In fact, the MC-303-Roland's funky, retro-styled dance music sequencer/sound module has been one of Roland's most successful products of all time.
Look at it, and you know immediately what it is:
the MC-303 reminds you of those Roland beat boxes and other groovy devices impossible to come by but indispensable
for the serious dance musician. Yet its features are straight out of the late 1990s.
It's got rhythms (Preset and User Patterns consisting of backings and cool grooves), it's got music
(all those killer sounds the Dance scene is after), and it's as real-time as an electronic musical instrument can possibly get.
Here's a device worth expensive setups consisting of turntables, a mixer, and various instruments.
The Roland MC-303 Groove Box is a self-contained, retro-styled sequencer and integrated sound module
with some very high-tech features. Techno, rap, jungle, hip-hop, acid and other dance styles can now be approached
easily and creatively by dance music producers and other groove enthusiasts with little or no musical training.
Just lay down some cool beats and fat bass lines from the MC-303's huge selection of sounds and rhythms and...
Let there be groove...
