Sunday Synth Jam: Here’s a subtle synth jam, Hard Talk, via reader Andrew Current, that makes clever use of a Roland MC-303.
Here’s what he has to say about the MC-303 and his track::
It gets a lot of flack as a groovebox and for good reason. But if you dig deep, you can squeeze out a lot of beautiful sounds from it.
I think this track shows how first, you can make interesting and pleasing music on almost anything and second, even out dated equipment like the MC 303 can perform well in modern contexts.
The track was entirely done on the MC-303, even using the built-in effects. Time to take another look at some of that old gear, eh?
