Can a whole song be done on the mc808?

Postby webdata » 18:25, 31 October 2014

I'm considering buying an MC808 and have been watching YouTube videos about it. I only find videos of people playing the same loop over and over and varying the sound a little with the faders. I'm beginning to think that this machine is very limiting. It has a song mode so why don't I see more examples of whole songs? Does anyone have any examples of whole songs (verse, chorus, etc) done using the MC808?

When I had my MC-808, sold it because I used my laptop as my main station, I used it for live p.a.'s and created songs in song mode. It is just better to use pattern mode for doing stuff live I think. Makes it feel more live while song mode is more for a final mixed version.

Thank you for your reply. I'm not a DJ--just want something to handle drums and bass while I play synth. I like the idea of being able to incorporate samples into the sequence and hoped that a whole song could be preprogrammed. Sounds like it can but DJs prefer to mix everything live.
