Sampler fans who still remember the SP-404 by Roland received some good news recently with the announcement of the SP-404 MKII. The SP-404 was originally released in 2005, and the SP-404 MKII promises to be faster and better than ever.

Roland revealed that the SP-404 MKII will boast a vivid OLED display for visual waveform editing, full menu access, and more, as well as 17 velocity-sensitive RGB pads with no-click designs. With 16GB of internal storage, low-latency pads, and rapid sample editing, the MKII will also offer faster workflow with quick startup and load times. It has a compact, ultra-lightweight design and comes pre-loaded with a sound library of 144 high-quality samples and patterns. Plenty of classic SP onboard effects, such as Vinyl Simulator, DJFX Looper, Cassette Simulator, and more, are also included. In addition, the MKII has 32-voice polyphony, 160 samples per project, and 16 internal projects. Users will even be able to fully customize their MKII with options such as a removable faceplate, downloadable outline template, multiple screensavers, and personalized startup logos. There’s much more to this upcoming sampler, which is expected to be available in November, so check out the video below and visit the official website for more information (https://www.roland.com/global/products/sp-404mk2/).
