Even with those built in speakers, this latest addition to the Roland Groove line is anything but low end. In fact the EG-101 is a hands-on sampling, synthesizing, groove making real-time workstation for singlehandedly generating entire dance tracks! Take some of the features of the MC-505 groovebox and the SP-202 sampler and you get the basis for the EG-101. It has a wealth of Roland-like sounds including everything from sub-basses to trance pads to 808 and 909 drum kits. Like other Groove products the EG-101 has a DJ/Remix or RPS (real-time Phrase Sequencer) for quickly generating ready-made grooves and beats - good for live DJ use or as a starting point for writing your own tracks! Unfortunately you can't program your own phrases. But you can alter the sounds, tempo and so on to give them your own unique twists.
