Roland MC-707 has everything you need to create a song or perform a live set without a computer. Immerse yourself in eight tracks of recording, sequencing, synthesizers and effects, plus a curated palette of sounds, loops and phrases. Record audio and MIDI – with deep control over timing – and tweak the faders and knobs for that in-the-moment experience. With such massive potential, you're ready to produce in any style or create your own new thing.
The MC-707 v1.30 firmware update adds a variety of exciting new features designed to supercharge your groove. Clip Chain lets you play back clips in succession, allowing the creation of evolving song forms or auto triggering fill-ins. Audio Insert turns the MC-707 into a performance mixer, giving the ability to process external audio through the master effects. Step LFO and Motion Drawing help you easily add complex modulation to your tracks. Other new performance features include Note Repeat, Note Shift, added MIDI input/output functions, and import of Standard MIDI Files.
Mega micro composer
This modern groovebox packs a lot of punch in a single piece of gear. It's deep and customizable yet fun and friendly, always ready to create something new. Compose from a curated collection of built-in sounds, beats and phrases all expertly crafted by renowned artists and sound designers. Explore a musical playground where you can freely combine loops and one-shots with melodic phrases, including your own audio recordings and MIDI sequences. Record and trigger clips, re-arrange, re-sample, record automation and make it all sound huge with per-track and global effects.
Eight tracks of clip-based sequencing
MC-707's eight-track sequencer is optimized for fluid production of today's electronic-focused music styles and ever-evolving subgenres. The TR-REC step sequencer is just like those found on classic Roland drum machines, perfect for building rhythm parts quickly. There are also 16 ultra-sensitive pads for playing or sequencing drum parts, melodic basslines or polyphonic chord progressions. Sequencer clips even store your knob movements along with note data. This lets you create dramatic, moving effects like a deep reverb on a single clap, slow filter sweeps and much more.
MC-707 features Roland's latest sound engine, which fuses virtual analog and modern PCM. It's flexible, powerful and lets you dig deep into its sonic capabilities. It has the sounds of legendary Roland rhythm machines and synthesizers that are the foundation of electronic music, including TR-808, TR-909, TB-303, Juno-106 and SH-101. But MC-707 also looks forward, with modern digital and hybrid sounds perfect for creating future classics today.
Record, sample, tweak and mangle
In addition to its deep synthesis engine, MC-707 has a powerful sampler with on-the-fly recording that synchronizes to your project's tempo. Record vocals or instrument parts or import from your own existing library, then sequence or trigger phrases, one-shots and loops. You can also tweak and mangle samples by truncating and reversing with the inspiration and precision that comes only from hands-on control.
With MC-707's massive effects palette your music sounds polished and fully produced. All eight tracks have independent effects processors with a huge number of variations. 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.
Loaded with hands-on controls, MC-707 lets you dig in and shape your music in a visceral, physical way. Faders for each track let you immediately mix and arrange parts, and knobs can be freely assigned to whatever control you need for a sound. You can even record your knob movements so they play back automatically. And the 8×2 pad array is not only great for playing drums: you can enter melody and chords with velocity, and trigger audio and MIDI clips as well.
With its advanced USB audio interface capabilities, MC-707 easily flows in and out of your production setup. You can record all eight parts to individual DAW tracks and finish your song there. Or sample sounds from your DAW to capture backing tracks, stems or the sound of a favorite software synth for your next live show.
