My new toys – Roland MC-303 & TR-606

With some help from my love I purchased these. She and her friend helped me order these on the web and they were waiting for me on my arrival in Japan the seventh of September.

Roland TR-606

Roland MC-303

Both are such cool machines to work with and both hold some surprises when playing around with them. The TR-606 is fully analog and the MC-303 is a rompler, meaning the TR-606 uses oscillators and modulation to create it’s sounds and the MC-303 gets it’s sounds from a memory bank. A lot of great vintage sounds can be found inside.
