wanted one for a long time, I even tried to win one on eBay but was being
out bid at the very end (damn snipers). I finally found one in a music
store not too far away (isn't that always the way!). I've only been using
it for a few months but am quite familiar with it. (a singer I used to
work with had one). There are only a few things I can complain about. One:
the small memory I tried to SYSEX some S-220 sounds and the four
bank tones were just too large (at 228k)! Two: some of the program quirks
are just weird and annoying like switching from composing to performance
mode the machine has to reset! But I am in the process (this will take
some time I find this a bit tedious) of converting my bands set-list onto
the sequencer. It will run the light show, change keyboard sounds, change
FX patches,trigger samples, and even play a note or two. I am about half
of the way done and am very happy with the way things are going. I just
hope I never have any problems with it, and things will be good!
2012: I had problems with it last winter so I put it aside. I thought the disk drive had died on it, but after playing with it the problem is much more serious. It keeps resetting when it tried to use the disk drive. I think it is totally dead. It wouldn't matter so much if there weren't so many songs that are now lost to me. So I have bought another used one from eBay and it is on it's way ...
2013: got another one!
2015: got another one for free, with no power supply, just a bit dusty. So I have one dead one and 2 working sequencers!

New one seems fine.
Just a bit dusty.
2016: Still the heart of the whole set-up, and I have a back up just in case!
2014: Have had the new mc-50 for almost a year and am very happy I got it. I used it for the Bėker show and have many future plans as well. I hope I can get the old one fixed to use as a back up.
2012: the disk drive has stopped working, and turned this into a paper weight.
2010: set up with the other keyboards in the basement.
2008: I at the moment have it set up in my dining room! I am gearing up for a live Beker show, and am practicing as much as possible. This is the heart of the whole operation.
2007:I finally moved, so I set everthing up. I have been going through old sequences, quite a few (good) surprizes.
There is a Yahoo
Group for the Mc-50 although I have removed myself from thier list
because there was so much spam
