Roland MC202 Analog Synth Sequencer SN 350800 w/ Original Box

via this auction

"Synth section fully working aside from the VCO/ LFO amount slider, so unable to modulate VCO for vibrato effects.

Sequencer section is working with issues!

If you move the sliders around while a sequence is running (as I'm sure most people would) it will stop, if you press Start again it will continue.

The switches & certain of the sliders are more prone to this than the others.

So you can use as is for SH101 sounds, or can run sequences so long as you don't want to tweak them!

Selling as 'parts or not working' as messing with the sliders while running the sequencer is such a major part of using an MC202.. but it is working otherwise!

Sometimes, the sequence won't begin in the first place (Start button inoperative) though it has recorded & can be edited.

I don't think it's the button pads or contacts, as I had these working with the top off, more likely a hairline trace or contact sensitive enough to respond to finger pressure, perhaps the flexing of the case and/ or circuit board? Never any problems playing the synth & manipulating the sliders from the front panel.

Complete with original box (tatty) & manual."
