Once again, Powertran and E&MM combine to bring you versatility and top quality from a product out of the realms of fantasy and within the reach of the active musician.
The MCS-1 will take any sound, store it and play it back from a keyboard (either MIDI or v/octave). Pitch bend or vibrato can be added and infinite sustain is possible thanks to a sophisticated looping system.
All the usual delay line features (Vibrato, Phasing, Flanging, ADT, Echo) are available with delays of up to 32 secs.
A special interface enables sampled sounds to be stored digitally on a floppy disc via a BBC microcomputer.
The MCS-1 gives you many of the effects created by top professional units such as the Fairlight or Emulator. But the I MCS-1 doesn't come with a 5-figure price tag.
And, if you're prepared to invest your time, it's almost cheap !
