I've got a 404SX, but the OG 404's Vinyl Sim has a much better flutter sound. I want that OG 404 flutter, and I was wondering if the 303, 505, and 555 have the same 404 flutter sound. If their flutter sounds as weak as the 404sx, I don't want them. I like the 555 for the lo-fi compression and hopefully the vinyl sim I'm after. I like the 505 for the different style of sequencing. I like the 303 for the old school lo-fi factor. But in reality I'll probably only purchase 1 more SP. Any have some Vinyl Sim comparison?

I have the 606. I believe it has similar wow & flutter as the 404 OG and the 303 and 505.

It seems like there are 2 types of vinyl sim within the sp line of products.

The more old school units (SP 303, 505, 606) have the slower heavy flutter that sounds more like when you put a thumb softly on a record. This flutter is also more warpy and almost gives a pitch down effect when pushed to the max.

The new school units, (404sx maybe the 555?) have the faster digital flutter that almost sounds more like a vibrato.

I have the 606 and had the 505 before and can confirm it sounds just like the 505 flutter.

The 404sx imo sound too sterile.It lacks the grime and weight of the 303 or 505's vinyl sim.

I know your talking about the Flutter parameter, but one main difference in the VINYL SIM effect on the 404 OG vs the 404sx:

-on the 404 OG, the CNTRL 1 knob changes the amount of compression (CMP)

-on the 404sx, the CNTRL 1 knob changes the frequency response (RNG) (more of a filtering effect)

And I know the 303 VINYL SIM is also similar (if not the same) to the 404 OG. It sounds really nice on the 303.

404og and 303 pretty much on par execpt the 303 sounds slightly more grittier do to the different machinery inside the two pieces. the 404 sx doesnt have a comp on its vinyl sim like the OG and 303. the 505 is pretty much an upgraded 303.
