The ultimate SP is here, streamlined for production and performance.
The SP-404MKII has everything people love about its predecessor, plus much more. Longtime users and new beatmakers alike will feel right at home with the intuitive layout and classic SP effects. People who make music with SP samplers love the rapid workflow, portability and tactile approach they offer. The SP-404MKII takes this experience even further, retaining the lightweight-yet-rugged design while adding features that make it even easier to create in any scenario. With its vivid OLED screen and zoomable waveform view, sample editing is smooth like butter.
Layer and route multiple simultaneous bus effects for intricate sound textures, or plug into the mic/guitar input and jam with ready-to-go Vocoder, Auto Pitch and Guitar Amp Simulator effects. The SP-404MKII gives you the flexibility to create patterns with unique feel and energy. It's also possible to organize patterns for different sets and chain them together to automate playback. With your hands freed up, you can stretch out on the SP effects controls or let rip on your favorite synth.
Download the SP-404MKII App from Roland Cloud Manager to go even deeper with your Mac or PC. And while you'e there, check out Roland's exclusive Beatmaker Sample Pack series for more sonic material from legendary sound designers and musicians to inspire your next production.
