if you're using the legacy format for the forum the date of the last post in threads shown in similar topics is very clear...
It's pretty clear in the new format as well.
Perhaps, the moderators could create a search default, where you start typing in a topic, and the search bar displays those similar topics.

I wonder if there is any difference in the 505/707 sound sets in the mc307/505 series vs the originals?

Would it be safe to say that none of the digital MC units came out until the 90's?

You're joking right? MC-505 came out in 1998

Who can sense sarcasm in an online forum, unless the lines were recorded instead of typed?

although the MC-505 was not analogue, it did have a really powerful "remix" function which made mixing and matching tracks from patterns very easy. I wish they had carried it over the MC-909, which has a superior sequencer.

as for the TR-707, it is pure gold. the voice of a generation, imo.
