Hello everyone,
New to the forum & the SP’s as well. I just recently bought a SP-404A after seeing HTRK use an SX quite a bit in their live set. Are there any fans of HTRK here? They’ve done some interesting things in their earlier days with noise and worked with Rowland S. Howard on one of their albums but as of lately they’ve shifted to a more electronic, atmospheric & ambient vibe. They have plans of releasing new material soon and Jonnine has been working on her solo album as well as interesting projects like virtual reality experiences that incorporate soundscapes. I definitely recommend you guys check out their work especially their latest album Psychic 9-5 Club.
Some have noted that for that particular album it may take a couple listens before you can really appreciate it because it was so different from their previous sound. If there are any other fans here it would be cool to talk about their work, share similar samples and techniques that they may use, etc. Really inspired by them ;)

you know the funny thing about the sp404a is it's the exact same thing as the SX with a different paintjob ahahaha

they released it to promote the AIRA TR-8 as midi compatible with it, to sell more 404s

i'm p sure they cost the same tho so its all good i guess lmao

i got my 404sx lightly used for 400

pfft, once you have the Roland UM-ONE you can sequence whatever you want with the SP. You would need a CPU though.

Maybe it's a big deal for some. I could read just to get insight... but I don't care enough to actually read it. I like my setup and don't intend to get a compatible beat machine.

If this person with the 404A wants to use the TR8 then you showed him the resource. everyone wins.

That’s why I said I got the SP404a after I saw them use the sx. I know they’re the same. The SX is discontinued and the shop near me had the A for cheaper than the SX at another store. That’s the reason why I got it. But enough of that, it’s off topic and has already been discussed many times in other threads.

i can tell by listening to a couple of their songs they like to use synth drums, so if you like that, buy a drum synthesizer/sequencer like a roland tr8

Thanks guys! Happy to be part of the forum. I've been snooping around here for a while so I'm aware of the type of behaviour to expect from particular members hahaha.

If anyone is interested in Jonnine's VR project here's the link:
https://www.ghosttrain.com.au

I'm in Canada so I didn't get a chance to experience it myself but the whole idea seems interesting. She also posted a soundtrack on SoundCloud:

https://soundcloud.com/careful_listen/4-jonnine-standish-ghost-trains

Quote:
Member of HTRK and co-creative director of the VR-enhanced Ghost Train, Jonnine Standish utilises episode #4 to soundtrack the experiences of thrill, mystery and energy using a series of blended sounds.

In Ghost Trains, old theme park soundtracks, carriage screeches, passenger screams, sparks, sirens and mechanical clanking meld with background audio from a series of long forgotten Instagram stories, all boosted in intensity by an underlying soundtrack of techno and experimental electronic music.

Congrats on your new SP. The A looks lovely. I dig the new pads, they're like little MPC LIVE pads.
