Hey guys

I have an mpc2000xl and a sp404sx, and want to buy another sampler, and my eye fell on the sp606 for 300,- (euro's) with memorycard. What are youre thoughts on the 606 and what benefits would I get even if I already have a 404sx?

thnx in advance.

its a great machine man.lofi effects and 4 tracks sequencer in one.i've been making beats on this for over a year and i am super satisfied. 2 fx at once, master compressor and d-beams synth are some nice touches..

price could be better tho, i was lucky getting one for 200euros.try pay less than 300 or think about another machine that adds something new to your workflow

Agree
Apart the 2fx you will benefit of memory but onestly for 300€ I will stay with 2000xl+404 and maybe i would buy a multifx box another machine: the 2000xl got more tracks and a stronger sequencer, plus the 606 is not very well midi implemented, if you should use it for midi aims

Thnx guys,

I also saw a 606 for 200,- without a cfcard. I have one for my mpc but those things are hard to find. I just like to collect samplers. Does the 606 sound different then the 404sx or is it quite similar? I will only use it as a stand alone or a smaller mpc i can take with me to gigs. I am also looking at the sp555, would that be a better choice fot what I will use it for.

thnx

YUBA i think, if it says max for 404 is 1giga it will still be.but at least you can use that 1giga at any card, like a partition ya feel mee? :)

Whats dope about the 606 is that even if Roland doesn't support it anymore, you can still use it as a controller for Ableton and sample anything into the machine. I know few who samples stems into the 606 from Logic and use just the SP606 for live work.
