The Roland MC-808 is Roland's latest and final Groovebox, announced at the Winter NAMM in 2006. It is the successor to the late Roland MC-303, Roland MC-307, Roland MC-505 and Roland MC-909. Though cheaper than the Roland MC-909, it has a number of features the Roland MC-909 lacked including double the polyphony (128-voice) and motorized faders. It lacks SRX card expandability, and turntable emulation, which the Roland MC-909 has. It supports more flash memory (1GB CompactFlash,) and more RAM (up to 1GB,) than did the Roland MC-909. It has a 2-line segment built-in LCD that is less flexible - similar to the late Roland MC-505, and much smaller than the Roland MC-909 large LCD screen. It also has a large LED display, similar to the late Roland MC-303. The Roland MC-808 requires a USB connec

  • Le MC-808 est une groovebox de la société Roland Corporation. Elle avait été annoncée en 2006 lors du NAMM. Elle succède au Roland MC-303 et aux modèles qui ont suivi, MC-307 MC-505 et MC-909. Elle dispose d'une polyphonie de 128 notes, et de 1024 patchs en ROM auxquels s'ajoutent 256 patchs en RAM, éditable par un grand écran LCD, mais aussi via un port USB à partir d'un ordinateur. Le séquenceur peut gérer jusqu'à 16 pistes. Le MC-808 peut importer et exporter des échantillons au format WAV ou AIFF. On peut entendre le MC-808 par exemple dans l'album Téo & Téa de Jean-Michel Jarre. (fr)

It also has a large LED display, similar to the late Roland MC-303. The Roland MC-808 requires a USB connection to a computer for full patch editing, unlike the Roland MC-909. (However, the OS v1.03 update available on the Roland website allows for some patch editing without a computer, most notably sample chopping, including auto-chop.) (en)
