Manufacturer's ID: MC-101
What we say:
At A Glance:
The MC-101 from Roland is a powerhouse in an ultra compact package. The pocket-sized groovebox is a full production suite, featuring sounds from classic Roland instruments. The intuitive sequencer on board makes building your own tracks easy and fun, while still providing professional results. It also integrates perfectly with a DAW setup over a single USB cable. It’s amazing how much Roland managed to pack into the MC-101!
Features We Love:
Fully-fledged Production Suite
Don't let it’s size fool you! The MC-101 is a fully equipped production suite, with a fantastic 4 track sequencer, great effects and editing tools. There are plenty of great sounds built-in, and the ability to load user samples via SD card. You can create finished songs with the MC-101 on it’s own, or you can integrate it with your DAW via a single USB cable. This makes the MC-101 very handy for laying down ideas on the go, and later bringing them into your main setup if you are a DAW user.
Legendary Roland Sounds
The MC-101 features sounds from various classic instruments, such as the Juno-106 and SH-101 synthesizers, and TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines. These instruments can be heard in a tremendous amount of music, and having their sounds in a pocket-sized groovebox is a powerful tool!
Compact and Portable
The MC-101 weighs less than a kilogram, and can easily fit in a backpack. It can run off of four AA batteries, meaning that you can pop in some headphones and create music anywhere you go. Making music on the morning train commute? Yes please!
