MC-101 is SHIPPING! I got MINE!! ... comin' in the Mail, that is...

a lil loloop 707 vs 101.

I really wanted the 101 for my immediate needs, so I am gonna wait until delivery (soon!) to fire them up!
... the form factor of the 101 is a Godsend.

Here are some honest opinions and thoughts on the MC 707 from someone who used the 505 a lot:
MC505 was literally my very first piece of equipment and my first steps into DAW.

It took me a while to realize how terrible it really was :D

While the 707 looks okay, I would only consider this for live performances given the price tag.

I would never, never again spend a single penny, on something that comes with only usb power option, never.
I done it multiple times, and I always had to hack somewhere just to have a reliable, noise free power, short protection...

500$? No way. But I kinda like it over the circuit, it looks nice with all the clip and scene stuff (MC101)

It is embarassing to see that the 707 has a DC in option, and the 101 does not. What a pity.

You got the 101? That looks like a ton of fun , for sure; I'd be very pissed over the power in, but it's just personal opinion. :thumbs_up:

power in vs audio in?

Battery , USB, and AUDIO over USB? its Perfect
But, Yes! I wished for Audio IN. But, Blackbox, 4ms recorder and the 707 has me covered.

The 101 is 8 Drumbrute Impacts - the way i figure it.
I might get 2 101s. One for drums, one for tones/loops/mobile.... - or, a 2nd 707 for Audio in

Gets here next week.
