"What a Groove Box!!"

I don't want to bore you with all the things you can watch on you tube, but I want to capture your attention for someone that has had this for 24 hours.First of all, I came from Novation Products. Novation MK3, Novation Circuit Tracks, and Novation LaunchKey MK3. So I've used groove boxes before. But this Roland Verselab MV-1 is in a class all by itself! Ok. I'm used to using sequencing because of the Circuit Tracks, but to be able to sing, and modify your voice?? I'm not trying to make any songs yet, I just want to get used to the commands, and yes I made a song already. I haven't gone into song mode with it, because it was an accident. I was playing around with all the three thousand sounds, and used reverb, and delay, and panning, and effects. Do I need to go on?I haven't even read the manual yet, just watched the Roland Youtube video.The only limitations the Roland Verselab MV-1 has is......... your creative juices!!Get it, get inspired, and make some fire!Also I went mobile and used a battery pack with it, and a microphone!! haha
Musical Background:
Play keyboards, and grove boxes now. Been playing over 20 years, by ear only
Musical Style:
Gospel, and whatever I feel like at the time. I'm a creator, so I don't have a Genre!!
