This blog will be an information resource for the 1977 Roland MC-8 Micro-Composer, the grand-daddy of all modern digital sequencers. I won’t be able to offer any comprehensive tech support here, but hopefully over time there will be enough info accumulated to get you going. Please stay tuned while I gradually add stuff!
In the meantime, a good intro to the MC-8 may be found in the article that Chris Carter wrote for Sound On Sound Magazine in the late 90s.
