  • I have updated my bank of 32 presets inspired by the SH-101 and the MC-101 & MC-707. To install place the “SH-101 patches” project file inside the “Project” folder on your MC-707 or MC-101. Each preset has been saved in an individual clip so you can demo them or load the presets into your own projects.

    • Thanks for these patches. They actually sound really close to the original SH-101. Can you give some details of how you created these?

      • It’s quite easy to set up an authentic SH-101 patch using the MC-707s four partials. There is actually a patch setup in the project for you with these defaults to start from.

        PTL 1 = Square wave, PTL 2 = Saw. PTL 3 = Square (to match the three sub settings of the SH-101, either at -12, -24, or -24 with 96 PW), PTL 4 = PCM -> White Noise

        Use the VCF (Flat). Filter slope -24dB. Set Key Tracking to taste between 0 and 127. 

        In the Sound Settings turn on Portamento if you want it, then select Legato On or Off as needed. 

        For Gate mode, use the Amp envelope at Attack 0, Decay 0, Sus…Read More

    • Thank you for sharing, how can we install the presets in the MC707?

      • Roland haven’t given us a way to save banks/presets on the MC-707, so the patches have been saved to clips in a project which you need to copy to the project folder on your SD card.

        When you want to load one of the presets to a clip you need to press the Sound button and then choose to load the sound from another project, and then select the clip you want to load from. I just checked and it describes it on page 26 of the reference manual (screenshot attached).

    • Great patches, thanks

    • Great patches, thanks for posting. I’m new to the sound modeling piece and wondering if you have tips for getting that classic key trigger sh sound. Specifically looking to model the bass sound on this devo song:
      Any tips would be great. Thanks!

      • I’m sorry I don’t have the MC-707 anymore so can’t help you there! Maybe try and find some SH-101 sound design tutorials and then translate the settings over to the MC-707. There’s an SH starter patch in the project that might help, with all the default settings that I used to create the patches. Might be a good starting point 🙂

  • The MC-707 and MC-101 just had a maintenance update to v1.81 to fix a few bugs…

    SDZ files cannot be loaded when there are more than 33 SDZ/SVZ files.
    SDZ files cannot be loaded when more than 33 SDZ/SVZ files are loaded in a row.
    Drum Kit of SDZ files cannot be loaded.
    Arpeggio may not work correctly when MIDI Channel is changed.

  • Roland recently updated the MC-101 and MC-707 with the ability to save and load “clips” containing both sound and sequencer data. This is my first pack of free clips for the MC-101 / MC-707. It includes 32 basses and leads inspired by the Roland SH-101. Enjoy!
