The MC-101 is solid-yet-light and runs for about five hours on four AA batteries, so you can design sounds, create drum patterns, and compose musical phrases just about anywhere. And it is not just a scratch pad for simple ideas. You can produce fully-fledged professional tracks or create backing tracks and accompaniment for live performances.

You can use the 16 RGB pads to create drum, bass, and synthesizer patterns and produce your original music. Explore a musical playground where you can freely combine loops and one-shots with melodic phrases, including your MIDI sequences and imported audio recordings. Compose and chain scenes or clips, rearrange, re-sample, record automation, and more. Or share clips with other MC-101, MC-707, and VERSELAB MV-1 users for remote collaboration.

A Portable Studio Full Of Vintage Gear

The Roland MC-101 Groovebox uses the ZEN-Core Synthesis System the most advanced synth engine Roland has ever made. ZEN-Core delivers the Roland sounds that have defined electronic and dance genres for over forty years. Legendary instruments like the TR-808, TR-909, JUNO-106, and SH-101 are all here, ready to replicate classic sounds or be combined, tweaked, and processed into entirely new sounds.

The MC-101 is also compatible with ZEN-Core Sound Packs. So when you are ready for more sounds or want to explore new genres and styles, it is easy to change things up.

Play Your Own Custom Audio in Perfect Sync

Each track contains a powerful sample player so you can import your custom sounds. Use your voice or the sound of a favorite instrument from your computer. Imported audio can sync with the Roland MC-101 Groovebox’s tempo or be processed with the arsenal of built-in effects and hands-on controls.

Produce Tracks Ready to Stream or Perform

With the Roland MC-101 Groovebox’s wide range of pro effects, your music sounds polished and fully produced. Each track has independent effects processors with a huge number of variations. The lush chorus brings depth to pads and other synth sounds. Delays and reverbs create evocative spaces and add movement to delicate sequences. Overdrive, distortion, and amp simulation inject grit and intensity into synths, guitars, drums, and more. You can also run your entire mix through master effects like filters, bit-crushers, and a master bus compressor that glues it all together with punch and clarity.

Produce And Share With The World. With A Single Cable
