      Roland SP-404SX Portable Sampler with Effects (583432)
Availability:  


Roland's most popular portable sampler just got turbocharged.

The portable Roland SP-404SX Sampler is a powerful, creatively stimulating music production tool for DJs, musicians, producers, and live-sound engineers.

The acclaimed Roland SP-404 performance sampler takes an exciting leap forward with the SP-404SX. In addition to the fun, fast, hands-on features of the original, this updated Roland sampler offers enhanced sound quality with pure 16-bit linear sampling, improved DSP (digital signal processor) effects, smooth effects switching, a more versatile pattern sequencer (with a shuffle feature), and easier data management with SD-card compatibility.

Instant sampling
Sample anywhere, anytime using the Roland SP-404SX sampler's built-in microphone. And since the SP-404SX portable sampler runs on AC or battery power (6 AA batteries), it's easy to record wherever and whenever inspiration strikes. Just power-up, point, and record.

Line and mic inputs are also available for recording direct or with an external microphone. The Roland SP-404SX's sampling format is uncompressed WAV for high-quality audio capture.

Hands-on performance
The Roland SP-404SX sampler is made to be played. It's packed with interactive controls for jamming along with loops and patterns. Put your fingers on the 3 non-slip control knobs, 12 trigger pads, and Sub Pad for rapid repeat triggering in real time. On dark stages or DJ booths, the Roland SP-404SX is a performers dream with illuminated rubber pads and a bright LED screen.

Extreme effects
Create a signature sound using the SP-404SX's 29 DSP effects, which switch seamlessly during live performance. Essential onboard effects include spacious reverbs and choruses, plus filters and delays. There are also unique, esoteric effects built in, including a voice transformer and looper. With the DJFX Looper, you can create short loops (such as machine-gun-like "da-da-da-da-da" sounds) and control reverse playback with the knob. You can also create scratch effects like on a turntable. Connect the SP-404SX to a DJ mixer and use it as an effect processor. Seventeen of the effects have a "limiter" mode, which keeps the effects from overloading. This is great for live DJ performances when you don't want to lose control of the effects in the heat of the moment.

Trackbuilder
In addition to the endless supply of loops you can pack into the Roland SP-404SX sampler, you can also create your own tracks in real time with the Pattern Sequencer, complete with quantize mode, which includes shuffle feels. Creating patterns is done in real time. You can loop two measures (maximum 99 measures), for example, then play and record only the bass drum and the snare. Next, add the hi-hat over the top, and keep adding more instruments while the SP-404SX loops. The sampler can store 120 patterns (12 patterns x 10 banks).
When you play a pattern with the Pattern Sequencer, the LEDs surrounding the display blink according to the tempo, which is a handy feature during live performance.

SD card memory

Start sampling right away with the included 1GB SD card. You can easily expand the sampling time using up to 32GB SDHC. Import audio files from your computer using the included software (Mac or PC) and assign them to the SP-404SX's pads. WAV and AIFF files are accepted. The software is fast and easy to use, as it displays the Roland SP-404SX's pads onscreen. You can even use it to convert SP-404 format files to the SP-404SX.

  • Sample anytime, anywhere with a built-in mic and battery power
    29 DSP effects, including: filter, delay, unique voice effects, subsonic, and looper

  • Awsome for effects and DJ Drops!

    As reviewed by Kevin Amado on 6/4/2010

    I ran this with my DJ Setup (2 Technics, 1 Rane TTM57) And I ran this through my mixer (Aux out from Roland, to Aux IN on my mixer) and I was able to drop samples and effects on the fly while doing my live mix sets at clubs, or at parties. Its very easy to add and remove you drops or sound effects. Another plus is, this bad boy runs off batteries if needed!

  • Awesome on many levels

    As reviewed by Valdochez on 5/17/2010

    I've used the SP-404 for years and it never disappoints. Great sound quality, great on board effects and really easy to use. If you perform live and some extra sounds from you demos or albums or just like to throw in a some vinyl sounds, this is the sampler you need to get.

  • Great live sample player for price

    As reviewed by david kennedy on 6/2/2010

    I like it. Just wish it had touch sensitive pads. Be careful with the built in mic, if your speakers are too close it will feed back. I prefer to use a hand held mic and a 1/4" adapter. Easy to loop, good fx, nice to use live. Built well, buy a CF card right away!
