What is a groovebox?
The term “Groovebox” was originally used by Roland Corporation to refer to its MC-303, released in 1996 and has since gone on to become a generic term for any self-contained electronic or digital musical instrument which combines sound generation capabilities (typically a drum machine, synthesizer or sampler) with a sequencer and a control surface (knobs, sliders, keys etc).
