Roland SP-404SX

Simon580, 25.12.2014
A well known and used piece of live equipment. also useful as an fx processor (either for the on board samples or for an external input). Quite limited midi wise though, and using the effects in a dynamic and effective way can take a little time to figure out and get used to.

No alternative and then pleasant surprises

Thomas290, 24.03.2014
It was not a love marriage. In particular, the lack of a proper display with real info to the samples Samplename runtime, for example, disturbed me. But had to rethink my opinion then largely.

In fact, this device is actually a project for theater and music projects, a song evening with 2 people on the stage, ie rather small hall, without a fixed installation, without a man at the sample controller and at the light desk. The pianist runs the samples next to the pianos quickly. That would not go with mouse and notebook. It is completely crash proof. The only downside here so far: If several samples are running, some of them can not get in and out. If you know it can be adjusted.

What does not create MPC: 32 GB total memory (SD card) from which the sampler serves, without one somehow in between what needs to be recharged

Loading the SD card is fast, but only 1 bank in the software (WaveConverter) can be seen. It would have been nice to have a software with which you get an overview of the loading state of all 10 banks at the same time. Such a program exists as freeware in the net, but caution, has macken.

I was pleasantly surprised by several features:

12 samples can be played simultaneously, even from different banks. A total of 120 samples are available.

The 32 GB mean: Virtually no limitation of the length of the individual samples. So you can go for hours on background noise. Parallel to short-term events and, of course, complete synonymous long audio files, to which one sings for example.
Direct tempo changes without change in pitch are possible. (Caution, here is no return to the origin version possible.)

A function makes it possible to interrupt the playback process and then resume it exactly there, unusual for a sampler. Quasi like a cassette recorder.

The effects are good, especially isolator, reverb, phaser, wahwah, equalizer, pitch shifter.

Small Wermutstropfen here: Only WAV files in the format 44.1 kHz and 16 Bit. Differently formatted samples must first be converted, which can lead to lengthy conversion tracks. MP3s can not be played anyway

What surprises me: Why is there no development in the field of hardware stage amplifiers that takes this kind of use (theater and music) into account. There are Sampler around the 100 euro, which can not even play a longer song, and also still have bugs, these can not be a serious offer. The well-known sampler flag ships, on the other hand, have stopped at one point, still use CF cards and have ridiculous storage capacities. And to computers: Not everyone wants to perform on the stage mouse work or build huge setups only for the audio samples.

Conclusion: The device is not to be imagined. Have now 3 of them.
There were no problems and failures so far.
