Roland MKS-70 with Roland PG-800 Programmer

“This Roland MKS-70 is in good cosmetic and operational condition. It includes the original PG-800 programmer, umbilical cable, and power cable. About a year ago, I replaced the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply as well as one of the bridge rectifiers. It works as it should and I have never had a major problem with it. Sold as-is due to its age and delicate nature.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland MKS-70 with Retroaktiv Super JX Programmer

“Fully working Roland MKS-70 with all 3 RARE VR ROM CARTS and Retroaktiv MPG-70 Programmer / Controller
+ Vecoven PWM, Extra 32 Bank patch memory storage upgrade, and unused updated MPG-70 front panel.

The MKS-70 has the Vecoven display upgrade and includes
ALL THREE of the rare factory ROLAND VR ROM CARTRIDGES!
(VR-101, VR-102, VR-103)

Also included is the PWM upgrade which has not been installed.
I am also including the 32 Banks/Patches upgrade (also not installed).
You can install these yourself if you want or pay someone to install them for you, I simply don’t have the time these days.
I bought all the upgrades personally myself directly from Fred Vecoven and Guy Wilkensen. They are a wealth of knowledge here
and are easily found and contacted on the web, simply google them or look for them on Facebook.
I will also include a newer revised front panel for the mpg-70 programmer, it has updated graphics and text but I never installed it. It is brand new.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland MKS-70 Project Machine

“Unit has boot issue when power on. “Write” key must be pressed when powering on and the unit will function normally. I cannot find a factory reset for this unit and don’t know if there is one. It is in great cosmetic shape and sounds awesome. The level on the output seems kind of low but I compensate for it through my mixer. Please understand and know what you are buying. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland MKS-70 Super JX

mks70 “This mks70 is 100% functional and comes fully midi capable with Vecoven 3.14 EPROMs on the main board and both voice boards. It truly sounds beautiful. Minor cosmetic flaws like rackrash and scratches but it’s from 1986. I will also be including the original 3 chips it came with as well as Roland’s last chip update for the main board. The Vecoven chips really make this unit a joy to work with and brings its big sound into the current DAW workflow” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland MKS-70

mks70 “This is the last of Roland’s fully analogue synths. Very fat sound, wide palette of sounds can be created, it has the power of two JX-8P at your finger tips. Also, the MKS-70 has a unique “chase-play” function which allows programmable delayed repeats of voices from either of its tone modules. See my other auction for the optional PG-800 programmer. The MKS-70 has a fairly complete MIDI implementation allowing you to save an load patches from your computer, this is not the case with the Super JX. Nice unit and fully functional.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland MKS-70 with Roland PG-800

70800 “Hello all! Thank you for viewing this listing! I am selling this beast of a synth with the super rare pg-800 controller. Includes pg-800 cable, carry case and sound cartridge. The synth is in excellent condition and works great. It has the typical rack mounting scratches and scuffs. It can create some absolutely MASSIVE sounds. I truly hate to see it go, I’ve used it on several tracks of mine so it will be missed. The Pg-800 is in good working order, all knobs, switches and faders work as they should. The Pg-800 has a cosmetic blemish on the upper right side where there used to be a sticker. I foolishly tried to remove it and was left with a faded discolored spot in the finish. Otherwise its in good cosmetic condition. Buyer responsible for shipping costs. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland MKS-70 Project Machine

super jx” This is a Roland MKS-70 analog synth in overall very good shape. However, there is an issue that is possibly a power supply issue or some sort of electrical short.

When powered on, the unit sounds and functions exactly as it should: full, lush, warm and beautiful. However, occasionally the unit likes to turn off on its own. Sometimes it turns off if you move it or bump into it gently, but this doesn’t happen every time it is moved or bumped. Sometimes it powers off for seemingly no reason. Sometimes after powering off it doesn’t want to start back up for a little bit.

Despite this powering off issue, once it is on and not being bumped into it is typically stable. It’s been on for about an hour now in my studio, sounding as amazing as ever!

The unit is in great cosmetic shape, but is missing the plastic power button cover. I don’t have the rack ears.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
