You shoulda been able to get it to talk to your other MIDI stuff...

I have no clue why man, I had the MC50 working as normal, everything else was to it's clock, but nope, no dice. :(

Re: Sequencer shootout:Yamaha QY700 vs MPC1000 (for sequenci

Like I said, there's no reason why it should be limited to any particular style. It's a sequencer - you can record what you like! Not trying to sell you on the idea but just thought you should know that it is very similar to the QY700. It's a good MIDI sequencer, I wouldn't dismiss it as an option....

Re: Sequencer shootout:Yamaha QY700 vs MPC1000 (for sequenci

If you were still looking at an RM1X you should know that the sequencer is based on the QY700. It's very similar and actually does a few more things in some respects I think (more real-time MIDI effects for instance). You can combine pattern and song type sequencing and record in real or step-time ...

Re: Sequencer shootout:Yamaha QY700 vs MPC1000 (for sequenci

As far as bugs go, what exactly have you heard? I can think of a feature or two I'd like to add (but that's true of almost any piece of gear), but no serious limitations spring to mind. I heard that doing something (I forget what, I think making your sequence too long) would crash the unit and corr...

Re: Sequencer shootout:Yamaha QY700 vs MPC1000 (for sequenci

Hey guys, thanks for the info! @glassofwater: This is REALLY REALLY helpful, it's the first I've heard anybody mention external MIDI with the MPC1K. I'm leaning towards this, because I need ANY kind of sampler right now, and yeah the floppy thing kinda bites. LORD I've seen the videos, but hip-hop w...

Sequencer shootout:Yamaha QY700 vs MPC1000 (for sequencing?)

Hi, I'm new here. The rules say this is the place to ask about synth comparisons, but I need to ask about sequencers, I hope this is the right place? OK so I come from a computer sequencing background, but after a friend told me to try hardware and I got myself a MicroKORG, I was hooked! I've since ...

Re: Roland MC50 help?

Sorry for the bump, but I have been doing research and I think I'd be happier with an MPC1000 or a QY700, leaning towards MPC as I also need a sampler.

I guess I should delete this thread now.

Roland MC50 help?

Hi, I'm new to these parts, and new to hardware synths as well (used to use trackers and VSTs, never going back to that world, hardware is just TOO awesome!). I first got into hardware with my MicroKORG, amazing little bugger, and since then I've acquired a BOSS DR-550mkii, a Korg M3R, a Yamaha DX20...
