Roland Corporation U.S. have announced general availability of the SP-404SX Portable Sampler. This update to the popular SP-404 offers 44.1kHz/16-Bit sound quality, improved DSP effects, a more versatile pattern sequencer, and easier data management. Here's what Roland have to say about it...
The SP-404SX includes 29 DSP effects -- including filter, delay, unique voice effects, subsonic, and looper -- that switch seamlessly for a smooth performance. Twelve trigger pads, three control knobs, and a Sub Pad for rapid triggering allow DJs, musicians, and sound engineers to trigger samples and jingles and apply effects on the fly at the club, gig, or theater.
The built-in microphone, simple user interface, and optional battery operation enable recording with the SP-404SX anywhere inspiration strikes. It is also easy to import samples and utilize the high quality effects onboard for sound design or unique live performance purposes. The more versatile pattern sequencer now includes an improved quantize mode with new shuffle feel for creating the latest in hip hop, R&B, and reggaeton grooves.
"Roland's SP-Series samplers are popular worldwide among DJs, musicians, and sound engineers alike," says Vince LaDuca, Product Marketing Manager. "This year Roland celebrates over 3,000,000 SP samplers sold across the world and we are excited to add the SP-404SX to this legacy."

The SP-404SX is now available with an MSRP of $465.50. More information:
