|Overall the camera is a good unit with an exceptional zoom. I was very impressed with the zoom quality. I am very disappointed. For my application, all I need are .avi files. Even all the old cameras are capable of this very clean and common file format.|

|I bought this camcorder 6 months ago. It produces excellent image and very good sound quality. It is good enough for family use with reasonable price. This is a great little camera that packs a pretty big punch. The key fact to this video camera is that it records onto flash memory.|

New-Generation Groovebox with Motorized Faders
From the company that made groovebox a household name comes a remarkable addition to the famous Roland groovebox family: the MC-808. Optimized for realtime performance,The sleek, silver powerstation features eight motorized faders on its surface a groovebox first! With Rolands most sophisticated processor at its core, the MC-808 has top-of-the-line sampling, sequencing, and synthesizer functions, yet it comes in at a new, low price point. For beat-makers, producers, remixers, live performers, and DJs, no sampling groovebox offers more bang for the buck than the MC-808.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The MC-808 shares two key attributes with its elder sibling, the flagship MC-909: The same top-of-the-line sampling and sequencing features that made the MC-909 so famous are built into the MC-808, making it a serious tool for sampling, editing, track building, and mixing. Performers are in for an extra treat with the MC-808, however, as it has a remarkable feature that no other groovebox has. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
New Sounds & Patterns
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------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 primetime. 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. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Motorized faders on an affordable groovebox?! Youre not dreaming. The MC-808 is the worlds first groovebox with this feature! Sure, the motorized faders look cool, but they also provide serious power for live performers. No matter what pattern you call up, the faders will snap to the proper position. As a result, the parameter values and position of the faders always correspond, allowing you to see the values instantly and make changes directly. No more unexpected jumps in values when you grab a fader in mid-performance. Its always in the right position. Plus, from the fader movements you can see automations such as filter, pan, and part levels changes. If you want to cancel and control the faders manually, simply move the touch-sensitive faders.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Live performance with the MC-808, and fine 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 tweek sounds and work on the part editor for part mixing to finish up your patterns.

Convention used in this manual
Words enclosed in square brackets indicate buttons on the panel. (p. **) indicates a reference page. 985 * The explanations in this manual include illustrations that depict what should typically be shown by the display. Note, however, that your unit may incorporate a newer, enhanced version of the system (e.g., includes newer sounds), so what you actually see in the display may not always match what appears in the manual.
As of December 10, 2005 (ROLAND)
An interface thats designed for intuitive operation
In addition to the motorized faders that give you a peerless advantage for live performances, the panel provides luminous lighting to indicate the state of the parameters controlled by those faders, and large highly visible 7-segment LEDs to unmistakably indicate pattern changes and the current BPM. With Rolands unique D Beam controller, which lets you control various parameters simply by moving your hand over it, the MC-808 gives you a total package thats easy to understand and easy to use.
Cutting-edge patterns from worldwide artists
Artists from North America, Europe, Japan, and elsewhere have provided their latest patterns created for the dance scene, with a total of 256 patterns categorized by artist, covering a broad range of styles including techno, trance, house, hip hop, and R&B.
V-LINK ( ) is a function that provides for the play of music and visual material. By using V-LINK-compatible video equipment, visual effects can be easily linked to, and made part of the expressive elements of a performance. The MC-808 enhances previous V-LINK functionality, and now supports the EDIROL motion dive.tokyo console edition. Of course, it still allows you to switch images in sync with the music and control a wide range of effects, simply by hooking up a V-LINK-compatible device.

Settings related to sequencer operation (SEQUENCER)
Here you can make settings related to sequencer operation and MIDI. Parameter Sync Mode Range MASTER, REMOTE, SLAVE Description Specifies how the internal sequencer will operate and how MIDI clock messages will be transmitted and received. MASTER: The internal sequencer will synchronize to the internal tempo clock. Any MIDI clock messages received from an external device will be ignored. REMOTE: Operation will be essentially the same as MASTER. However, Start/Stop messages from the external MIDI device will control playback/stop for the internal sequencer. SLAVE: The internal sequencer will synchronize to MIDI clock messages received from an external device. If no MIDI clock messages are being received, pattern/song playback will not occur even if you press the [PLAY] button. Determines whether synchronization-related MIDI messages will be transmitted. OFF: Messages will not be transmitted. ON: The following messages will be transmitted from the MIDI OUT connector. Timing Clock: F8 Stop: FC Start: FA Song Position Pointer: F2 Continue: FB Specifies how the arpeggio start timing will be synchronized to the pattern. OFF: The start timing will not synchronize. MODE1: When a pattern plays, the arpeggio will start in synchronization. When the pattern stops, the arpeggio will also stop. MODE2: In addition to the operation of MODE1, the arpeggio will start at the beginning of the next measure of the currently-playing pattern. * If the pattern is stopped, the arpeggio will start immediately, regardless of which of the above settings is selected. When using RPS during pattern playback, patterns and phrases may not play back in precise alignment, depending on the timing at which you press the keyboard pads. On the MC-808 you can specify the playback timing of the phrase, so it will play back in precise synchronization with the pattern. REAL: The phrase will play back immediately, at the timing at which you pressed the keyboard pads. 16TH, 8TH, QUARTER: The pattern will be divided into selected note units, and when you press the keyboard pads, the phrase will begin playing at the beginning of the next note unit. MEASURE: The pattern will be divided into one-measure units, and when you press the keyboard pads, the phrase will begin playing at the beginning of the next measure. * If this setting is anything other than REAL, youll be able to play phrases in perfect synchronization with the pattern by striking a pad slightly ahead of the playback timing you actually want. * If the pattern is stopped, the arpeggio will start immediately, regardless of which of the above settings is selected. Specifies how the tempo will change when patterns are played back consecutively. OFF: When the pattern changes, the tempo will change at the same time. ON: The tempo of the first-played pattern will continue even when the pattern changes. Specifies how songs will be played back. OFF: The currently selected song will be played back only once. LOOP1: The currently selected song will be played back repeatedly. LOOP2: All songs will be played back repeatedly in sequence. Specifies whether or not the pattern setup parameters will be loaded when you move to the next step of the song. MODE1: The setup parameters, mute, and realtime modify settings will be loaded each time you move to the next step. MODE2: The setup parameters, mute, and realtime modify settings will be maintained during playback only if the next step plays a pattern that is the same as the currently playing pattern.
