Roland MC4 MicroComposer Flowcharts & Saving to computer - D Burraston

Back to noyzelab research

Two vital pages from the Roland MC4B MicroComposer manual that give an overview/flowchart of all operations. The earlier versions of the manuals did not contain these pages to my knowledge. They are the last two pages in the manual and so can easily get lost. I've decided to post mine here for other MC4 owners, I don't own the copyright on them and have not asked Roland for permission.

Below the two flowchart pages is the letter that Chris Carter printed in Sound On Sound Vol.12 No.10. August 1997. This was a letter to Chris Carter in response to his retro-review of the related Roland MC8 Microcomposer. His article on the MC8 is published on his website. The article is copyright SOS.
