The Roland SP-404MKII Creative Sampler and Effector enhances the Roland SP-404 sampler’s original design with a brilliant OLED display, expressive new pads, extended effects, seamless sequencing and sampling, and a vast library of real sounds to inspire your music.

You have the freedom to design patterns with the SP-404MKII, and each one has its own feel and vitality. A Roll button allows for various note repeats, input quantizing and shuffle can be adjusted for unique swing, Pad Link fires off numerous samples with a single tap, and BPM-per-bank allows for rapid tempo changes. Additionally, it is possible to arrange patterns for various sets and link them collectively to automate playing.

Everything we liked about the original SP-404 (and SP-404sx) is present in this linear wave sampler . The quick boot time, project loading, and sample import will have you producing beats in no time. Furthermore, the 16 GB of internal storage provides ample space for storing creations or keeping your favorite samples on hand.  Whether you’re a beatmaking newbie or an SP pro, you will feel right at home.

Compact and ultralight, the SP-404MKII lets you bang out beats and produce tracks anywhere with AA or USB power (or with the included AC adapter).
