*censored*. Weekly Beats lost my description on upload! Waaaaa (Been a bad week for tech)
I made this on an MC303 that I bought when I was a teenager. (I'd broken up with my band / GF, etc). I decided I was going to produce live electronic music so bought the 303 because it apparently did everything! Within a year I'd upgraded to an MC505 / sampler and I haven't made a track on this "Groovebox" since.
I lost a tune earlier tonight because I'm an idiot and copied another version over it. I gave up at everything in that moment and was going to just go to bed and rage quit weekly beats for 2016. Then I saw this unit on my top shelf slotted next to my C64 stockpile. I figured it'd have something stored in it from the 90's I could press play on and twiddle. But instead I stayed up till 5am and sequenced a whole track from scratch. Then banged a 3.5mm to 3.5mm straight from the headphone socket into my mac line in.
I ended up going down the MC303 rabbit hole. It is 100% the MC303 sequenced internally but mixed in Reaper with some post reverbs. If you've ever owned an MC303 you will instantly recognise the sounds because the unit only has presets and the tetra-chorus effect is super Roland!
Also - don't buy one of these unless it's seriously cheap :-P . I could write 4 or 5 tracks before I run out of preset sounds that I'd actually use!
