Roland’s MC range has a new addition in the form of the sleek silver MC-808 sharing the same top-of-the-line sampling and sequencing features as its elder sibling, the MC-909, but at a new, low price point. Roland are confident that for beat-makers, producers, remixers, live performers, and DJs, no sampling groovebox offers more bang for the buck than the MC-808 and at our first glance it sure looks like a serious tool for sampling, editing, track building, and mixing.
Performers are in for an extra treat with the MC-808 as it is the world’s first groovebox with motorized faders. No matter what pattern is called up, the faders will snap to the proper position. As a result, the parameter values and position of the faders always correspond, allowing the performer to see the values instantly and make changes directly. No more unexpected jumps in values when a fader is grabbed in mid-performance. It’s always in the right position.
With the exception of a few ‘must have’ favourites from the MC-909, all of the MC-808’s internal sounds and patterns have been created fresh. Roland say that they are "slammin’ new dance and hip-hop grooves, instantly ready for primetime". You are noy just limited to playing and manipulating the internal sounds however - the MC-808 allows any sounds to be sampled, edited, and added to the song. WAV and AIF files can also be imported from computer via USB.
The MC-808 ships with a free Mac/PC editor for serious sample editing tasks on the luxury of a large computer monitor, and for shuttling the files effortlessly back and forth via USB.
