Title: Roland MC Series Sequencers + Synth/BeatBoxes
Post by: chrisNova777 on March 16, 2015, 11:53:00 AM
though similarly named these seem to be two seperate groups of products
but the grooveboxes basically contain the functionality of the micro composers minus a few features
such as storage method / disk drive etc
