Roland MC-707 Groovebox Move to a new groove. The MC-707 GROOVEBOX 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.
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 chain clips, re-arrange, re-sample, record automation, and make it all sound huge with per-track and global effects.
The 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. Sequences are stored in clips that contain your sounds, note data, and live knob movements or drawn automation. This lets you create moving effects like a deep reverb on a single clap, slow filter sweeps, and much more. Scenes and clips can be triggered or chained into songs and creative tools like note repeat, chord designer, and step LFO supercharge new ideas.
In addition to its deep synthesis engine, the 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 slicing, truncating, and reversing—with the inspiration and precision that comes only from hands-on control.
With the 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 process external audio and 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.
