Roland MC-101 4-track Groovebox
4-track Sequencer, with 3,000 Sounds, 80 Drum Kits, 90 Multi-effects, USB/MIDI, AA Battery Power, and SDHC Card Support
Your Powerful and Portable Groove Production Workstation
Offering over 5 hours of operation from AA batteries, the Roland MC-101 Groovebox is ready to produce tracks and perform sets just about anywhere. It packs the sequencer, synthesizer, and effects from the flagship MC-707 Groovebox, in a compact four-track version. The ability to create your own samples and loops, and its powerful sequencing capabilities make the MC-101 a smart solution for integrating with other synth modules. Whether you need a portable production center, or a compact sequencer to go with your other synth gear, you'll be impressed with the Roland MC-101 Groovebox.
Tons of built-in sounds to expand on
Right from the start, the Roland MC-101 is loaded with over 3,000 sounds including pounding basses, vibrant leads, spacious pads, and much more — and that's in addition to over 80 preset drum kits. You'll quickly be able to start creating your own custom loops, with high-quality sample recording up to 24-bit/96kHz sound quality. And with 90 types of multi-effects processing plus mastering effects, you have endless options for re-sampling and processing your custom sounds.
Clip-based sequencing for production and performance
Like the most popular sequencing apps for your computer, the Roland MC-101 features clip-based sequencing that gives you a ton of creative potential. Four tracks are available — use the built-in ZEN-Core sounds for pounding drums and vibrant synth sounds and effects. Producers at Sweetwater love how easy it is to connect other sound modules via MIDI and sequence them from the MC-101. Whatever you create, you can save your audio and projects to SD card media (included).
