Roland MC-500 | The Magic of 80s MIDI Sequencing | Pt.1


Espen Kraft

"In 1986 Roland released the MC-500 Micro Composer. It soon ruled the world of MIDI sequencing. It was cheap, fast and rock solid.

Gear used in the video:
Roland CR-1000 drum machine, set to external sync, received from MIDI Out2 on the MC-500.
Crumar BIT01 for strings
Roland D-550 for the lead
Yamaha TX802 for synth bass
The Sequential Six-Trak is played live (over the top) in the demo track."
