The Roland SP-404 Power Sampler with FX surpasses its predecessor by offering battery-power compatibility, a CompactFlash slot, and a built-in microphone for quick, stress-free sampling sessions. Add extra color with the many effects built into this little Roland powerhouse.
2 Sampling Modes
Record audio directly into the SP-404, or import/export industry-standard WAV and AIF files via CompactFlash card. The Roland SP-404 also provides a Lo-Fi sampling mode, so you can scorch, roast, and crunch your audio if desired.
Realtime Pattern Recording
The SP-404's easy-to-use sequencer allows up to 8,000 notes to be recorded in real time. For perfect playback, pattern data can be quantized to the note value of your choice. Up to 24 patterns, each 1—99 measures long, can be stored in the internal memory simultaneously. On CompactFlash cards, you can save 96 additional patterns with 8,000 notes of recording capacity per card.
Quick Sampling & Editing
The Roland SP-404 can house up to 24 samples in memory simultaneously. On CompactFlash cards, store up to 96 samples; if you use a 1GB CompactFlash card, sampling times can be as long as 772 minutes in Lo-Fi mode, or up to 386 minutes long in Standard mode. The SP-404 provides sample-editing tools for setting start and end points, adjusting levels, and more.
29 Onboard Effects
Twist, bend, and animate your audio with the SP-404's expressive effects, and manipulate them in real time using the front-panel control knobs. Shake the walls with Subsonic. Drive the dancefloor wild with the BPM Looper (grab a region on the fly and loop it) and DJFX Looper (change speed and reverse audio to get a turntable scratch-like sound). Effects include reverb, flanger, delay, Voice Transformer, distortion, filter, Slicer, Isolator, Vinyl Simulator, and more. Best of all, the Roland SP-404's effects can be applied to multiple samples simultaneously or live input signals. Select the multieffects directly by pressing the MFX button and the corresponding pad at the same time.
Onboard Microphone & I/O
Use the SP-404's mic input to capture audio with an external mic, or just aim, point, and record with the built-in mic! Sample pre-recorded sounds with the line input jacks (L, R) and sample. For playback, the Roland SP-404 offers line outputs (L, R) as well as a headphone output. A MIDI input connector is provided for controlling the SP-404 externally.
The SP-404 comes equipped with an industry-standard CompactFlash slot that accepts cards up to 1GB. Import WAV and AIF files into the Roland SP-404 Portable Power Sampler via CompactFlash, and vice versa.
