“You are bidding on a fairly rare Roland MC-500MKII with is immaculate apart from a slight blemish just on the corner of the floppy disk housing. I’ve attached a photo so you know exactly what you are getting and also a photo of it working.

In all fairness this is probably one of the best looking MC500MKII’s on the market.

There is no need to tell you what this is as you probably wouldn’t be looking or indeed bidding if you didn’t know.” Link

“iebe eBayer,

hier biete ich Euch meinen Stand-Alone Hardware MIDI Sequencer Roland MC-500 Micro Composer zur Ersteigerung an.

Das Gerät ist eine computerfreie Lösung zum Aufnehmen, Editieren und Abspielen vierspuriger MIDI-Arrangements. Sozusagen eine Hardware-DAW aus den 1980ern. :-)

Der Sequencer ist in einem optisch wie technisch guten Zustand, alles funktioniert, auch das Diskettenlaufwerk und das Display. Auf dem Gehäuse sind kleine Rückstände von einem Aufkleber, die aber nicht weiter auffallen.

Das Betriebssystem muss mit einer Diskette eingeladen werden. Daher liegen diverse Disketten bei: neben den Originaldisketten auch noch zwei von mir aktuell aufgespielte Versionen mit den Betriebssystemen 1.10 und 2.0 (“Super MRC”), beide jeweils doppelt (eine davon als Backup).

Im Lieferumfang ist die MC-500, mehrere Disketten mit den Betriebssystemen und ein passendes Stromkabel – letzteres ist besonders wichtig, da die MC-500 einen typischen Roland-Stromanschluss mit zwei Pins hat und die Kabel selten zu bekommen sind.” Link

“Bid with confidence on this great vintage Roland sequencer midi recorder/player. It is in good working condition and overall well taken care of, only thing I can mention that it is a bit yellow from age, but functionally it is great. Includes power cord, users manuals, and Super MRC boot up diskette with system files. What you see is what you get. Very cool! ” Link

“Disks and Manuals For the Roland MC-500 MKII Sequencer.

In full working condition.

This auction is for the disks/manuals only as many have the unit and not the disks/manuals or the other way around. It makes financial sense to split the unit and system disks/manuals.

See other action for the unit.

I have decided to sell this and most of my guitars as they should be enjoyed by someone who has the time to enjoy them.” Link

“This was the cream of the crop in the mid 80s. It is a 4 channel sequencer plus a separate rhythm track. Each track can contain data for all 16 midi channels. It has a 20×2 character LCD display and a built in 3.5″ disk drive for data storage. It’s been in my basement for the past 20+ years but I connected it to a midi-keyboard and it still works fine.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“MC-500 MIDI sequencer. Works great. This thing is built like a tank and has a stellar reputation as one of the great sequencer heavy-weights. Included is the original MRP-500 “Performance Package” disk, two copies of the MRC operating system (version 2.0) and three pre-made data disks.

Although the MC-500 is a champ, it has one nasty gotcha: you can’t use just any old 3.5″ floppy in it. Only the older (and much harder to find) “Double Density” disks are compatible with this. Those disks are getting difficult to find. Luckily, I’ve got a still-sealed box of 10 blank DD disks included with the auction.

The manual to this machine was quite extensive. You can find it online, but I printed it all out and put it in a binder for ease” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“One used but still very functional MC500 mk2 sequencer – great very locked tight playing box, you don’t get this on PC/MAC software set ups. based on Roland MRC engine, that was also used on the now classic W30

This was bought from a musician mate to finish a project – it has the original manuals and the software disc supplied, there is a bend to the metal plate on the back, and its plastic is dis-coloured due to lighting near plastic. but it works fine” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“The MC-500 mkII is one of the best and reigning stand-alone sequencer and midi recorders around. It’s really a dedicated MIDI computer. It can be used as a regular MIDI sequencer, a MIDI playback sequencer, a rhythm sequencer or even a bulk librarian.

There’s 8-track recording in real or step time and 16 midi channel multitimbrality, a dedicated rhythm track, a built-in 3.5″ disk drive with 100,000 note capacity and a large LCD screen. Track merging, microscopic editing, quantization and it’s relatively simple to use. The recording system operates on 8 polyphonic tracks which can be merged and un-merged as many times as you like. All MIDI data can be edited to the most precise detail using the Microscope Mode.

The Bulk Librarian software let you save programs and setting of your synthesizers or effect units. You can save programs, patches, settings of any unit that has a midi in/out.

It comes with:

AC cord

Manuals

Super MRC disk

Bulk Librarian disk

10 used disks with midi songs” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
