Roland has today updated its MC-707 & MC-101 grooveboxes to the firmware 1.6 with a new arpeggiator, class-compliant USB drivers & more.

Good news for all Roland MC-707 and MC-101 users. There is another update for Roland’s latest groovebox series, again with new features. The new update adds a user-requested arpeggiator that adds new flexibility to the playability of both devices.

Next to this, both instruments are now equipped with a new random tone generator. Thanks to multiple algorithms, it creates endless new interesting tones for you. That’s a pretty nice feature indeed.

Roland MC-707 1.6 Update

Roland has also expanded its ZEN-Core compatibility that lets you import sound pack drum kits in addition to instrument tones from Roland Cloud. A highlight in my opinion is the new USB drivers for both grooveboxes.

With the 1.6 updates, Roland gives the MC-707 and 101 Class Compliant USB drivers. Something we’ve wanted from Roland for a long time. Finally! With the USB generic driver mode lets you connect your MC groovebox directly to a smartphone or tablet, great for producing with Zenbeats on your favourite DAW.

Roland MC-707 & MC-101 firmware 1.6 is available now as a free download.

  1. 5 firmware updates since I bought the MC707 late last year! It’s a brilliant machine now, one of Roland’s best I reckon. If Roland would only put step probability on the TR8s (I use the two together), I’d be happy.
