Roland MC-202 MicroComposer Vintage Monophonic Analogue Synthesiser & Sequencer
The MC-202 was released in 1983. It is sort of a mash up of the early Roland MC-4 and MC-8, as well as the SH-101 and TB-303. The internal synthesiser features one VCO with simultaneous saw, square/pulse-width and sub-octave square waveforms. Additionally there is a 24dB Low Pass filter, an LFO and a single ADSR envelope generator. In terms of circuitry, it is very close to the SH-101 synthesiser. It lacks the noise generator, choice of LFO shapes and modulation/pitch bend controls. However, unlike the SH-101, it does include a delay on the LFO. The two units also share a design aesthetic in terms of the control layout, casing, lettering, knobs and slider caps.
