mc-202 logoHack
.version 2.0.

a better way to program your Roland mc-202

what is it:
a software application that works with your Roland mc-202 synthesizer

New version 2.0.5 available for Mac! (latest is still v2.0.4 for Windows)(see Version History in Documentation for info)

what are its features:
complete application overhaul from v1.0
go from mc-202 sequence on your synth to a MIDI file
go from a MIDI file to an mc-202 sequence
edit mc-202 sequences in the software, not on your mc-202's little screen
easily copy patterns between internal and external mc-202 sequences
preview sequences with built in mc-202-like softsynth, GM synth, or MIDI device
save visual mc-202 "snapshots" of front panel synth settings
exchange mc-202 patch "snapshots" using easily shareable text files
calibrate the program to your specific MC-202 (old analog synths can be finicky!)
let me see it:
MC-202 Hack input
Input section - accepts real-time or file-based MC-202 tape audio, or MIDI files.
MC-202 Hack sequences
Sequences section - edit/playback one or both of the MC-202's sequences.
MC-202 Hack synth
Synth section - tweak internal softsynth, and save/load settings to disk.
MC-202 Hack output
Output section - send sequences back to MC-202, to cassette audio or MIDI file.
MC-202 Hack calibration
Calibrate window - adjust MC-202 Hack to work with *your* MC-202.
