Roland SP-404MKII Sampler

Roland’s Portable Sample Workstation Is More Potent Than Ever

The Roland SP-404MKII Linear Wave Sampler is the most powerful incarnation of Roland’s beloved sampling workstation ever devised. Dual headphone outputs streamline collaboration with other musicians, without needing a mixer or separate headphone amplifier to monitor your sampling session. An updated resampling workflow makes it simple to re-record patterns and effects layers; plus, with a generous selection of new effects on top of classic SP effects, the sound design potential is vast. Factor in its OLED screen for visual sample editing, the ability to tap out edit points in real time, pattern sequencing to turn ideas into full performances, and much more, and it’s clear the Roland SP-404MKII stands out as a leader among portable sampling workstations.

All the effects you need

Sample artists at Sweetwater have long been fans of the SP series’ effects like Vinyl Simulation and DJFX Looper, and the SP-404MKII adds even more ear candy to the mix. Effects such as Lo-fi, Cassette Simulation, and Resonator expand your creative potential, and the Mic/Guitar input can tap into Vocoder, Auto-Tune, and Guitar Amp Simulator effects. And thanks to the SP-404MKII’s updated resampling workflow, it’s faster than ever to process audio through effects and bring the resampled audio into your arrangement.

DJ mode encourages live performance

Gigging electronic musicians who typically juggle two SP sampling workstations will rejoice at the SP-404MKII’s new DJ mode. It offers an all-new approach for live performance, allowing you to manipulate and mix two audio files with eight pad controllers per side. Speaking of live performance, the SP-404MKII allows you to chain patterns together manually, save a sequence of patterns chained together for playback, or even link up to four pads to be triggered by a single pad.
