Monophonic Synthesizer

The Roland SP-808 Groovesampler is already an old sampler from the 90’s.
Nowadays they’re sold for very low prices due to the ‘problems’ of the Zip Drives and it’s disks.
But….it also contains an amazing monophonic synthesizer which can be controlled by the internal step sequencer or with an attached MIDI-keyboard.
I created a video to show you how you can play with the SP-808 Groovesampler synthesizer attached to a MIDI-keyboard.
For sure you will be much as amazed as I was when I dove deeper into this undiscovered gem.

Some important notes:
– You need to have the e-mix Studio OS installed on your SP-808.
– You need to have a MIDI-keyboard.
– You need to match the MIDI-Channels on both machines. For the SP-808 you need to set the MIDI-Channel of ‘FX Ctrl Ch.’ as the internal synthesizer is an effect.

Here's the link to my website + video.

Thanks for watching and keep on grooving.

Hi Roger,

I love the Synth on the 808, had my 808 since '99 and only really the last year or so discovered the power of the synth. Got any tunes you have made with it?

Hi!
Amazing that you were on the first train in '99!
I bought last year two of these beauties and decided to explore them. I don't have specific tunes made with them. They are just taking their a part in my tunes. Soon I will post some tunes on YouTube.

nice site


:D Thank you so much!
End of 2017 I started with sharing my love for synths and samplers because I noticed that more people are interested in those old digital machines. I have to find my way in Wordpress though... :?
But based on your comment I'm heading for the right direction.

Roger, Great I look forward to your posts, articles etc. Always felt pretty isolated with my love for the 808, but this forum is cool and it is great to see more 808 enthusiasts.

I made this rather long video last year about some basic 808 functions, keep meaning to make a shorter clearer video of dome other functions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SM3RPy8NQCU

i hope to be able to play the sp606 synth with the same way you've done with the 808, but the midi on the 606 (on the 505 too) is very contort...

Maaaan! Of course I know your video!!!
Thanks for subscribing to my channel also.
This machine is really amazing imho and happy to read that you’re also a huge fan.
I keep on shooting vids, mostly tutorials instead of performances. Just to give others an idea how to use or not to use it.
We stay in touch!

I hope it too for you as it is a very nice synth on the 808.
I also own a 505 and it doesn’t have a synth at all. Nice sampler but for me the 808 is superior
