weird, looks like it's still $999 here, same as on release.

the year-end price drop on the TR-8S sure screwed up the resale on that though. might have been a blessing, probably would have sold it otherwise (which i would certainly regret).

I'm thinking of making some custom tone sounds for my 101. The tone slot supports stereo samples, right? What bout loop points? I'm guessing I need to add the loop points directly with the 101.. not looking forward to it.

I was thinking of making some looping drones/soundscapes, so I'd need looping sounds and a full ADSR for the voices. Pretty sure the 101 can do it but havent yet made any custom content on it..

i would have been fine with that when i was thinking of selling, i think i only paid $600 for it new (15% off at GC). there were a good number of them selling for ~$450 at the time (December/January), haven't checked recently.

still haven't bought a 707, maybe some day. haven't even touched my stuff at all this year so far. don't even have anything hooked up right now.

Started doing my drones. Can anyone help pls? How do you turn sample looping on for a TONE track on the 101?

Please dont tell me it cannot be done.. Or is sample loop only working for DRUM pad samples? Surely that cannot be!

don't count on it. you probably should have done a little research before buying one.

I didnt initially expect I'd be making custom drone sounds for it. If I had I woulda skipped it and gotten something like the 1010 blackbox instead. But then again, blackbox doesnt do the other stuff 101 does.

But thanks for stating the obvious

say, where can you DL 1.30? Roland's site still shows 1.20 as latest version..

EDIT: Oh snap, its only for 707.. hopefully 101 update isnt far off.

so, 707 is now a proper MIDI controller and a proper mixer!

very nice update, never mind the absence of arpeggiator.

So clip chain is basically song mode

Should be great to add feature like static machine in the Octatrack, just direct reading from sd card and finally I can prepare dj set using only loops like in ableton

What I really miss is the ability to stream and trigger samples directly from sd-card.

Although it should scratch that "song" itch for those who have it, I wouldn't call it that.

It's a spaghetti implementation, so workflow isn't the best and there are limitations: you're chaining clips rather than scenes, can only set one destination, if you want a part to be muted for a while you have to sacrifice a clip. It's like a mix of the electribe 2 and circuit implementations.

Anyway, still a useful addition. It can do other tricks, like one shot clips as pointed out by Unit:E:

all the Unit:E videos (Non from Roland currently as far as I can tell):







All in all, awesome update, a number of wishlist items have been addressed. Keep this up Roland

Just bought a open box mc 101. It came with no as card and no content besides the drum kits. Is there a way to download and restore the factory sounds?

Well you need the SD card... and I think you can download the default program here: https://www.roland.com/global/suppor...-69c106c1c132/

sounds are all there, i mean in firmware.
if you can access only drumkits, i guess you're on a drum track.
for the rest of presets, it has to be tone track.
