Hardware sequencer with software style editing. I have the EX version which includes a Sound Canvas Pro internal expansion board. I also have a 2GB hard drive installed. I use it for backing band tracks and also fully orchestrated for solo / one man band stuff. Great features, usable sounds and excellent timing. Basically a computer sequencer in a little box you can snug into a laptop backpack. Features I wish were included are Dynamic track mixing, direct outs and easier manipulations of effects & parameters as found on the older Roland MV-30 which I also own. A substantial amount of tweaking needs to be done in SysEx for some detailed work. I use all the factory presets as they give me most of what I need. The only other gripe I have is that the HD will have difficulty booting in colder temperatures. I try to leave the unit at home now and always on. Once I make my sequences I transfer to MD and take the minidisk machine to gigs. Overall a great unit... It's made me lots of cash over the last 10 years.

Mc-80 still the best sequencer. Hard drive caddies are not available from roland anymore. NO PROBLEM [synchrotech .inc]213-368-3760 has a IDE 6 in 1 card reader. item # PCM-CR-IDIMUL $51.00 I have 3 of them. They will work in any unit that uses IDE drive as it is a plug and play. Backups are a breeze with computer with card reader. They work much better than Zips which are being phased out.

We use a MC-80 onstage to enhance our live performances. It provides horn tracks, percussion,even extra bass and drum tracks. But I have noticed on occasion it will speed up tempos in certain parts of songs. Is this due to line voltage fluctuations? Does anybody know? Has anyone else experienced this problem?
