    Take my rating with a grain of salt, as I am not a gear-head, not a synth player, and have little experience with other equipment. The MC202 is my main and only synth, used as auxiliary to my primary instrument, bass thru fx. Actually, working with this instrument over the past 15 years has taught me a lot about synthesis. Decent sounds, decent responsiveness, decent controls. More about sounds than about playing. Very useful programming and cycling. In my opinion, and in my practice, you really need to have this running into a delay pedal. This allows 2 things: -- capturing a phrase into a fairly short loop -- with the cycled playing of programmed phrases, the delay X speed of the programmed cycled part provides an Ozric-y arppeggiator where melodies synch up and produce accidental harmonies in time, either on top of itself or interwoven. This allows knob-twiddlin' and slider-play of the programmed melody arp. (Sorry if these words are meaningless and non-technical, but as I say, I'm a synth outsider. )

    Lots of bright, wide-open space and drifting melodies fill the room. Sounds very free, an enjoyable jam-like recording, must have been fun to create. Great cover art, too.

    Hmmm... This DOES look interesting, thanks for posting. Since the 1980's I've been using a Micronta (Radio Shack) Biofeedback Monitor to generate unique tones into various sound projects. I brought it with me to use in my performance at the Denver Noise Fest in 2010 as well -- 'twas a hit!

    2012-03-01 - 5 years ago today my album "TIme" was released on the Free Floating music label. This has been one of my most noted recordings. Sincere thanks to Brad, and all you who have supported this endeavor. You don't know how much it means to me. read on. That said, its worth sharing the real story behind this album - one that I have not shared with the public before. In September of 2012, I was all set to fly to the East Coast to play the Electro-Music fest, Sonic Circuits fest, and other shows. When just two days before. I found out my cat Boo had terminal Cancer. I was devastated. Not knowing how long we had left. I didn't want to give up 2 weeks on tour to be away from her, so cancelled everything. I work from home, so the next few months were spent with her 24/7. Doing everything I could to make things comfortable, knowing that another day was not guaranteed. In those last 2-3 months, the tracks for this album were recorded. Every one of them is about our "Time" we had left - Drawn from the intense despair, and love that I had for one of my closest friends. Her name was "Boo" and she was such a brave, darling, sweet cat, with a heavy proclivity for mischief. I once found her up in the tree in our backyard, hanging out with two Raccoons, if that tells you anything. I will share a photo in the comments below for you see her. Please download a FREE (required) copy for yourself before "Time" passes by. Think of your loved ones when you listen, and be with them in the now, for me and for Boo. https://freefloatingmusic.bandcamp.com/album/time
