"Roland MC-202 - The Roland MC-202 is an analog 2 channel microcomposer incororating a monophonic synthesizer, with sounds closely found in that of the TB-303 and SH-101 bass synthesizer. It has a very evolved form of TB-303 like programming and SH-101 like controls of the VCO, VCF, VCA, LFO, Envelope and Mixer sections.

The Roland MC-202 is in some ways a next-generation of the TB-303, and with that the idea was to program sequence/patterns into it internally which would give you 303 style basslines that we've come to love.

The MC-202's sequencer is a 2-channel CV/gate sequencer, with both channels being capable of driving a separate external synth. For its DINsync capabilities, it can receive on one port, and send over two, and also can 'split' DINsync to branch a sync signal out to multiple devices.
