Fresh new sounds and patterns
The Roland MC-808's internal sounds and patterns have been created fresh by artists around the world. Make no mistake - these slammin' new dance and hip hop grooves are instantly ready for prime time. A few "must have" sounds from the MC-909 are also included. But playing and manipulating the internal patterns is only half the fun. The MC-808 allows you to sample any sounds you like, edit them, and add them to your productions. You can even import WAV and AIFF files from your computer into the MC-808 via USB.

Besides the live performance features of the MC-808, you can make fine-tuned edits on your computer. The MC-808 ships with an editor software (Mac OS X, Win XP/2000) that lets you perform serious sample editing tasks on the luxury of your large computer monitor. Use the patch editor to tweak sounds and work on the part editor for part mixing to finish up your patterns.
