Congratulations to my dear friend David, who is now the proud owner of a Roland MC-8! It is quite a beautiful and historically important machine. I used to think I'd like to own one -- well, I used to think I wanted to own every Roland product! But, I know now that this type of sequencing isn't really for me, I'm perfectly suited for my CSQ's, and I hope (and suspect!) that David is perfectly suited to the numeric, keypad programming style of the MC-8. Check out his blog, The Compleat Synthesizer, for a wonderful post about making an new cable for the MC-8.
