Re: New MFB-522 drum machine, now with more cowbell..

Hi. Yes I've already downloaded the manual mate. About the power supply will an ordinary 12v DC adapter do I think I've got one lying around somewhere. Are the European ones dodgy then? You wouldn't recommend them?

Also, Is it a stereo mini jack output?

Cheers for the quick reply.

Nah can't afford a Miami. I'll probably order a 522 from Thomann either today or tomorrow.

Re: New MFB-522 drum machine, now with more cowbell..

Syn303 - How have you found the LED runner and the 8 buttons for note input on the 522? Is it easy to get the hang of? I don't know why they didn't use 16 little buttons like the 503.

Re: New MFB-522 drum machine, now with more cowbell..

Hi mate cheers for these links. I'm looking for analogue, pure analogue, and that means analogue UI as well. I can see that the 503 is more powerful than the 522, but I need pure analogue sounds and crave pure analogue UI as well. I'm not really into the LCD display of the 503 and the menu diving (I...

Re: New MFB-522 drum machine, now with more cowbell..

Hi all. I've just seen this little unit the MFB-522 and it looks very interesting and worth a mess around if you ask me. I've never heard of MFB before to be honest. I have a couple of questions about the unit. When it says 'fully analogue', does this mean that it uses analogue circuits for the dru...

Re: Virus TI vs TI2

If you can get the TI1 cheaper then get that, thats what I bought. I find the 80+ polyphony more than enough for me. Some people also find the styling of the first TI better than the second one, I'm one of those people. It is rather heavy though, but never found that to be a problem personally. Its ...

Re: Is it worth buying a x0xb0x if I've got Virus TI/MC909/JP8K?

You both have a point. Too much gear means more learning and reading of manuals etc. :( , but I don't think the 303 too time consumning to learn. I've come into some money!! I've managed to sell some Kraftwerk tickets and make a tidy profit out of them. I've got 90% of the money together so it won't...

Re: Is it worth buying a x0xb0x if I've got Virus TI/MC909/JP8K?

I do love it. Love the sound. As a side remark and just said it may increase in price possibly, thats not a reason I'm buying it. You can't have too much gear no?

Re: Is it worth buying a x0xb0x if I've got Virus TI/MC909/JP8K?

buy one. it's not a lot of money Depends on who you are. if you own a virus TI, as the OP does, a xoxbox is pittance in comparison! Well I've spent all my money on the TI and the MC909 you see. But the sound of the 303 is amazing, almost like liquid. I could put it on my credit card, but shouldn't ...

Really? How much were they going for a year ago?

Which assembler would you recommend? I've seen two on ebay, xoxsource and classaelectronics.

Re: Getting a x0xb0x in the UK...???

I'm thinking of buying one also and I'm too based in the UK. I've seen the two sellers that are based in America that jeeroj quoted. I've email one of the sellers (x0xsource) who replied very swiftly and answered a few questions I had. I quite like X0xsources plastic cases better than the beastsdiab...

Is it worth buying a x0xb0x if I've got Virus TI/MC909/JP8K?

I'm thinking of buying a x0xb0x. I've been listening to some analord tracks and just love the TB303 basslines. Can't get enough of the sound. I already have a Virus TI, MC909 and a JP8000. There are some nice 303 type patches on the TI, but the x0xb0x sounds out of this world. Its a lot of money for...
