Roland MC-202 MicroComposer w/ Original Box

via this auction

"I have an original Roland MC-202 MicroComposer analog synthesizer which comes in its original box and contents. I purchased this in Japan and the previous owner barely used it! The MC-202 is in excellent condition and even comes with original sealed manuals and original Roland factory cable which are unused.

For those who may not be familiar, the Roland MC-202 was a hybrid between the Roland SH-101 synthesizer and a MC-4 MicroComposer released in 1983. The design concept was that users could use the MC-202 to program up to 2 other analog synthesizers via its mini keyboard sequencer via 2 CV/Gate outputs or use the built-in SH-101 analog sound generator in a portable Walkman-like battery operated device.

The MC-202 is excellent for programming eurorack modular gear and interfacing with other Roland x0x equipment. It is a favorite of Aphex Twin, Autechre, Daft Punk and many others..."

Podcast 279: Doug Lynner

Published on Jun 2, 2019 20Objects

"I first knew Doug Lynner's work as the editor/publisher of Synapse Magazine, an electronic music magazine before most people even knew that was a thing. Doug laid the groundwork for magazine-as-history in our cultural world, and took the opportunity to leverage his position and location (L.A.) to get a lot of great interviews over the magazines short-ish lifetime.

I have a couple of listener requests to have a chat with Doug, which caused me to do a little background work. My God - what a career. Between his CalArts education, the magazine work, his bands and his long history with Serge systems (including being an artist/demo dude for Serge himself), he was clearly a touchpoint for the things that interest all of us.

He continues full-force, doing one-on-one teaching, producing a weekly live performance radio show on KZSU ( and releasing new work based on his Modular Tonalism system. All of it is intriguing, and after listening to this chat, I'm sure you are going to want to learn more.

Check out all of Doug's work at, or at his bandcamp site ( Enjoy!"

BOSS DR-110 & Roland PB-300 Sound Comparison

Published on Jun 6, 2017 京浜マテリアル - Keihin Material

"Those two models were released in 1983 and are the last full-analog rhythm machines from Roland/BOSS currently. In the same year, TR-909 was also released, which contained some PCM sounds in it.

The programmable DR-110 was basically for the guitar practice, while the PB-300 was to accompany the digital piano with MIDI and is equipped with simple auto arranger function.

Here I programmed the rhythm patterns similar with PB-300 on DR-110. Since DR-110 has no tom/conga sounds, they are replaced with other instruments such as the snare drum or hand clap."

Rucci Maximal Drone (x2), Strat, Moog DFAM (x2)

Published on Jun 2, 2019 Kris Lennox

"I was speaking to Michael a few weeks ago RE his instruments. I noticed his Maximal Drone a while back, but had picked up other gear in the meantime. I got round to ordering some of his items, which arrived yesterday. I'll possibly post some music with some of the other toys in the near future.

Warning to UK residents: I paid almost £60 just on customs charges (!). Postage alone added up to the price of a reverb pedal.

The Maximal sounds great. Quite lo-fi, but when ran through some outboard, it really comes to life. When I head it, to my ear it was begging for some guitar. Nothing complex or technical, just textural for setting the mood/feel.

The guitar is a '94 Strat ran through a Mesa TC-50. Great sound. Every note comes through clean; no distortion-blurring. I didn't film the guitar part, given it is just a few chords. Also opting to keep the video all-synth.

The DFAM section is quite the contrast to the sense of freedom of the first half.

Interesting meter in this piece (15/8).
