Roland just dropped a new Version of the SP-404. what y'all think?

i don't like the new look. functionwise it'll be the same as the SX as far as i see... but some new Loops/sounds on the SD-Card :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

...so dissapointing. wasn't feeling the SX "update" but this is even worse. it looks nice but it really seems they updated nothing beside the price.
499€ :lol: :lol:

...i remember the OG beeing 319,- when it dropped first in oct'05 and the SX was 339,- before they put another 100,- on top... Nowadays the SX is up to 479,-.. I wonder why though?! As much as I love these boxes - that price is just unfair.

A fucking paint job! They could have at least slapped on a better screen and better sampling/editing capabilities. Instead they gave it an ugly color and a sample pack. Thanks Roland!

The SP-404 isn't even as affordable as it was. It seems the price keeps going up. Not even a Micro SD slot or 64GB (It is an unreasonable amount of storage) capability.


The black looks cool but the pads are weird. The font is okay....


At least add better Resampling Polyphony!
