Roland is now shipping the SP-404 Portable Power Sampler. Picking up where Roland’s SP-303 sampler left off, the new SP-404 offers battery-power compatibility, a CompactFlash slot, and a built-in microphone.
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.
Top-quality effects are built into the SP-404, 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.
