HI this is a Mc-202's that i bought in England back in 1998, hence the 220 power wart. The 220 power wart had been hardwired into the system by the original owner so as not to pull out during live performances. I tested the regular power supply plug in and it works fine as well using 120 Power supply. , so you can have your choice of 220 or 120 bonus for International travelers . This is a great little unit, not "to nice" to play out but in excellent condition to be a studio instrument or to take on the road with you. I just did a test on all functions and the only anomaly I noticed was the diode light for the LFO was out, this is located in the top left of the panel. This could be due to the Mods that were done on it, not really sure. Replacement diode lights are available. Mods do work and are a nice accessory for a 202 to be able to do more cool stuff with. Battery compartment is clean , so no rotten batteries have been left in there, and yes I have the battery cover. All knobs and slider are there. Sweet sounding little 202. Sequencer works, Din sync works, CV Gate ins and outs work. I did not try tape save though, thats up to the adventurous but I'm sure its working fine. Also there is a new Software program for the 202 so that you can load up almost any midi file into the sequncer, via computer pretty slick. It makes the 202 even more powerfull and gives it new life (Defective Records Software). Questions, please ask! Get your Bass on with the Bass monster!






It is used by Autechre, Future Sound Of London, Coldcut, The Human League, Underworld, Aphex Twin, LFO, Jedi Knights, Plastikman, Astral Projection, Sabres Of Paradise, Freddy Fresh, Jimmy Edgar, ProtoType 909 and Taylor 808."

The Roland MC-202 (MicroComposer) is a monophonic analog synthesizer/sequencer released by Roland in 1983. It is similar to theTB-303 and SH-101 synthesizers, featuring one voltage-controlled oscillator with simultaneous saw and square/pulse-width waveforms. The unit is portable and can be operated from batteries or an external power supply.

Synthesizer [edit]

The internal synthesizer features one voltage-controlled oscillator with simultaneous saw, square/pulse-width and sub-octave square waveforms. Additionally there is a 24dB Low Pass filter, an LFO and a single ADSR envelope generator.
In terms of circuitry, it is nearly identical to the earlier SH-101 synthesizers but lacks the noise generator, choice of LFO shapes and modualtion/pitch bend controls. However, unlike the SH-101, it does include a delay on the LFO. The two units also share a design aesthetic in terms of the control layout, casing, lettering, knobs and slider caps.
Sequencer [edit]

The MC-202 includes a sequencer that can play back two separate sequences simultaneously. Two sets of CV/Gate connectors on the rear of the unit allow for routing the sequences to external synthesizers. One of the two sequences is used to control the internal sequencer. The sequencer is programmed much like Roland's early digital MC-4 and MC-8 Microcomposer sequencers, whereby notes are entered with pitch, length and gate length. Additionally, each note in the sequence can be an accent and slide, which is similar to the TB-303 and the SH-101 and allows for so called acid sequences.
The sequences are lost if the unit is powered down, however a tape interface is provided so that sequences can be stored to and recalled from an audio tape recorder.
There are DIN sync inputs and outputs which allow the unit to synchronise playback, either as master or slave, with other DIN sync-equipped instruments such as the TB-303 or the Roland TR-808. The unit can also generate and sync to frequency-shift keying signals from a tape recorder.
The MC-303 was built in 1996 and is a digital successor of the MC-202.
Computer-based sequencer programming [edit]

In 1997, Defective Records Software released MC-202 Hack, a software application that enables programming of the MC-202's sequencer on computer. It works by creating audio that is routed into the MC-202's cassette input port. It allows for MIDI files to be converted to MC-202 sequences. This eliminates the need to use the MC-202 keys to enter sequence information. Version 2 of the software (released in 2009) also allows sequences programmed directly on the MC-202 to be converted back into MIDI files.
