Expertise/Experience: I like weird noises.
Isle Of Lewis GB

Pros: +
You won't need the manual it's so easy to use.Effects can be subtle or all out weird.

Cons: -
Doesn't sound as good & isn't as versatile as an Akai MPC (which I also use) but you can get your ideas down really quickly.

Great piece of kit for a bit of fun. and also for live gigs and beat making. Favourite bit of kit right now.

Classic SP architecture with an updated FX and function. Stunning sonic quality and amazing post sample manipulation - IMO by far the most musical and intuitive sampler on the market. Amen.

If you want a machine that's going to test your imagination push you in a corner and force you to fight your way out in order to make some decent music.Than the SP-404sx is for you.No it doesn't have a million EQs or the ability to analyse every single frequency of a kick drum and yes you do have to manually adjust things yourself and no SIDECHAIN. But it has enough to easily make a decent track,the effects are great,the sound quality has a depth no computer can match,can't explain it but sound seems to come alive once sound is passed through it.

Okay there are a few workarounds, you may need to re-sample and bounce and commit to ideas quicker than you would than say on a pc or mac,you may have to make better choices of your arrangement as you don't have infinite sequencer tracks. But there is a beauty to that process that A virtual world just doesn't have.Its slightly ghetto in its approach,and it looks like a brick waiting for imagination and skill to be passed through it. There's a musical cult around these machines go online to see and hear what kids are doing with it. Great Mixdowns in this thing is more than achievable.And they hold their price well. Great machine...
