How to program a Roland MC-202

This time I'm showing you how to program a Roland MC-202. The tutorial only covers the most basic features but should be enough to get anyone struggling to a good start. In the future I'll do a follow up video showing some of the more advanced features.

If there's something you think I missed or if there's something you want to know more about then leave a comment to this post. I'll do my best to cover what you ask in future posts.

So far from the comments of previous postings I plan to do these videos in the future (not in any particular order)

Advanced track programming on the TB-303
Advanced track programming on the TR-606
Tap mode on the MC-202
Information on my hackintosh
Information on my modular
Follow up to the x0xb0x vs TB-303

So if you want to suggest soemthing else then this is the place to leave your suggestions ;-)

New High Quality versions of all the Service Manuals

Gaetano from the x0xb0x forums kindly sent me high quality versions of all the service manuals.

You can download them here


These really are great quality, also the TB-303 includes two extra pages of errata which I hadn't seen before.
