Roland Customizable 8-Track Clip-Based TR-REC Step Sequencer Groovebox with 16 Ultra-Sensitive Pads

The Roland 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 are ready to produce in any style or create your own new thing.

Mega Micro Composer

This modern Groovebox packs a lot of punch in a single piece of gear. It is 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 share clips, chain Scenes, re-arrange, re-sample, record automation, and make it all sound huge with per-track and global effects.

Eight Tracks of Clip-Based Sequencing

The Roland MC-707 Groovebox’s eight-track sequencer is optimized for the fluid production of today’s electronic-focused music styles. Quickly build parts with the TR-REC step sequencer found on classic Roland drum machines and use the 16 ultra-sensitive pads to play and record drum parts, melodic basslines, or polyphonic chord progressions. Sequences are stored in clips that contain your sounds and note data, plus real-time or drawn automation for creating effect changes, slow filter sweeps, and much more. You can capture clips in Scenes to perform complete songs and use creative tools like note repeat, chord designer, and step LFO to supercharge new ideas.

Deep Synthesis

The Roland MC-707 Groovebox lets you dig deep into our most advanced synth engine ever the ZEN-Core Synthesis System. Fusing virtual analog, modeling, and modern PCM, the Roland MC-707 Groovebox has the sounds of legendary Roland rhythm machines and synthesizers that are the foundation of electronic music, including the TR-808, TR-909, TB-303, JUNO-106, and SH-101. But the MC-707 also looks forward, with modern digital and hybrid sounds perfect for creating future classics today.

Record, Sample, Tweak, and Mangle

In addition to its deep synthesis engine, the Roland MC-707 Groovebox 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.

Studio-Grade Effects

With the Roland MC-707 Groovebox’s massive effects palette, your music sounds polished and fully produced. All eight tracks have independent effects processors with a huge number of variations. The 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.

Hands-On Experience

Loaded with tactile controls, the Roland MC-707 Groovebox lets you dig in and shape your music in a visceral, physical way. Faders for each track let you immediately mix and arrange parts, and knobs can be freely assigned to any control you need. You can even record your knob movements so they play back automatically. And the 8x2 pad array is not only great for playing drums and triggering clips you can generate repeating rhythms, create melodies, constrain to any kind of scale, and trigger complex chords.

Computer-Enhanced

With its advanced USB audio interface capabilities, the Roland MC-707 Groovebox easily flows in and out of your production setup. You can record all eight parts to individual DAW tracks and finish your song there. Or sample sounds from your DAW to capture backing tracks, stems, or the sound of a favorite software synth for your next live show.

Expand With New Sounds, Loops, and Phrases

The Roland MC-707 Groovebox is an updateable and expandable platform that never gets stale. Keep things fresh with projects that contain new loops, one-shots, phrases, and synth sounds all available online. And since the MC-707 uses the ZEN-Core Synthesis System, you can get loads of new sounds with ZEN-Core Sound Packs, available via Roland Cloud Manager.
