Roland MC-8 MicroComposer Unboxing & Demo


YouTube via peahix

"I just bought this old beast on eBay. Since it came complete in the original box in essentially unused condition, I thought I'd make an unboxing video. After spending an hour or so getting familiar with its arcane operating system, I made a quick programming demo. It's brain seemed to be a bit frazzled when I first turned it on, but it seems to be working OK now, except that it needs to be calibrated because the pitch CV's are off scale. Anybody know someone that can do this for me?"

  1. For the first measure u don't realy need to tap each time in the program sequence the 'o' ,u can ommit it ,it will automaticaly assign it as 'o'.

    Strange i don't have to tap again the timebase knob after the tempo has been programmed.

  2. Kind of a bummer about the cycle glitch, the MC-4 cycles perfectly. Very cool sequencer still though.
