  • See full product description

Introducing the Roland MC-101 Groovebox - the ultra-portable sequencing solution for on-the-road idea's generation. Featuring the same professional effects as the larger 707 version, you can perform complex routines in a compact unit.

The wide range of pro-effects available on the MC-101 means that you can produce professional-quality music straight from the device. Delays, reverbs, chorus, distortion and amps are all at your disposal with the 101 groovebox. You can even add filters, bit-crushers and master bus compressors so that you can glue your tracks together nicely for polish and clarity. The MC 101 Groovebox features sounds from legendary TR-808 and 909, so you get access to classic synth sounds which you can tweak for your own modern productions. Additionally, you can easily import your own sounds and samples with the SD card reader. The audio you import can also be tempo-synced to the groovebox tempo as well.
