Picking up where Roland’s popular SP-303 sampler left off, the new SP-404 builtds on that foundation by having more features - specifically: more voices, more pads, and more memory. With a new sleek, silver look, the SP-404 surpasses its predecessor by offering battery-power compatibility, a CompactFlash slot, and a built-in microphone for quick, stress-free sampling sessions. With no cables and mics to connect you can just turn it on, aim, and record, then get down to the business of making beats and patterns with the pattern sequencer while adding extra color with the built-in effects.
The sampling and playback quality of this instrument is crystal-clear Compact Disc-grade, but for lo-fi lovers, the SP-404 also provides a Lo-Fi sampling mode. WAV and AIF files can be imported and exported via CompactFlash card.
The SP-404’s onboard pattern sequencer allows up to 8,000 notes to be recorded. Up to 24 patterns, each 1–99 measures long, can be stored in the internal memory simultaneously. An additional 96 patterns can be saved on CompactFlash cards. The effects built into the SP-404 are all under the control front-panel knobs. Featured in the FX menu: Subsonic, BPM Looper, DJFX Looper, reverb, flanger, delay, Voice Transformer, distortion, filter, Slicer, Isolator, Vinyl Simulator, and more. The SP-404’s effects can be applied to multiple samples simultaneously or live input signals. More info:
