The SP-404SX is an updated version of Roland's popular SP-404 sampler/sound module. Coming from the same lineage as the legendary SP-303 (the machine used by MF Doom, Madlib, and J Dilla to name a few), the SP-404SX builds on Roland's solid legacy for better sound and functionality. Adding to the fast, hands-on features of the original, the SX model adds 16-bit linear sampling via SD card for enhanced sound quality and easier data management, while the improved DSP effects and more versatile pattern sequencer (now with shuffle feature) make it a more robust production tool. A recommended piece for anyone just getting into beat making, or veteran producers looking for a compact all-in-one sampler and sequencer unit.
