Hey guys,

I also luv my Brotherman (PDC-100) lol Puchaced from a pawshop back in 98 & havn't parted with it since for love or money. A computer recorder-friend of mine even got me the software,training & all the computer fixins so I would finally leave the,"Stoneage," (as he puts it) & walk into the clean, cool, fast, modern world of recording digital music. Nope, still not compleatly really yet, I like my set-up. I use still use the Boss Dr-5,& Concertmate 990 (for accompliment sounds.) Here is my issue with my Brother unit, not really sure it's broken but it seems that when I try to load up a few of my recordered tracks & it going thru it process,it stop then on the small display window it shows a ERR message & refused to load. Now this don't happen with ever tracks, but I really don't understand why these few tracks are doing this. I didn't do anything diffrent in my loading process with them. I also would like to know when I could get ot download another user manual to the PDC-100. I have a few control volume issues in some of my tracks & I would like to be able to turn them down thru the my PDC-100 scquencer unit, not my instrments. Any ideas?

Thanks for the time.

John L. Philly pa.

thank you for your

I used this for 20 years and loved it with zero problems until yesterday. I re-built my rack and dropped the PDC-100. It still plays fine but the recording process is broken. Anything I record pulls everything else on the recording onto that MIDI channel. I think the problem is the Display Mode which cannot be edited. It's like frozen. Any ideas or know of any place where I can buy another one?

I am looking to purchase another one of these units for backup; I have literally made thousands of dollars over the last 20 years as a one man band act. My original unit still works perfectly with zero problems. This is the high bar for musicians who don't want to encumber themselves with useless, unmangeable technology.

I bought my brand new in 1991 a year after it came out. At the time this thing was the Bomb!!! and in my humble opinion it still is!! 32 tracks,,64 units (or snippets of data you can use for repeats saving memory) total editing functions. Many editing functions that are not even found on some of todays computer software sequencers!!!!! True the display is a little small but it shows everything you need to see and is not confusing!!! I even made a custom keypad for the unit.. I opened it up and interfaced the buttons with a 15 conductor shielded cable 10 feet long and made a box with large soft touch momentary switches..worked like a charm and I can sit the unit on my keyboard rack at eye level and have the remote box at my fingertips works great. I still use it 2007 and everything works even the floppy drive..I will never sell it!!!I also have a Roland VM-3100pro and use it as my digital mixer to input track into the computer..but all sequencing is done with the PDC-100 I love it!!!

I bought my PDC-100 about the same time 1992. It has been a GOD send for someone with a limited budget and has worked flawlessly until now. For some reason it will not format a disk. I also have the Brother midi-30 that I bought before the pdc-100, and it still is working great. Only thing is it is not general midi and only 2 tracks, but you can ping pong and get a lot of music into it. I have put as meany as 30 song on one floppy. I wish Brother had kept making midi gear like these two and I thank they could have captured the market from all the others. Luther
