The caveat of the SP808 is you can only play 4 pads at once. In theory, yes you can bounce a few into 1 pad, or just carefully sequence them into your recording to the zip disc. But if you want a smoother running unit, ditch the Zip drive for the card reader.

by this, do you mean it has a 4 note polyphony or an 8 note

I kinda forgot, so you should look it up, because I don’t want to steer you wrong. If anyone else wants to chime in and state the truth, they can. I bought one with the extra input/output card when it came out. A part of me wants to say 4 pad polyphony, but I don’t wanna look foolish if I’m wrong. If you feel me?

Polyphony in this case is based on the number of voices. A pad that triggers a stereo sample equals 2 voices, whereas a pad that triggers a mono sample equals 1 voice. A track that is recorded in stereo equals 2, and a mono track equals 1. The 808 has 8 voice poly, so any combination of sound from tracks and pads can’t exceed 8.

I think the machine has a couple exceptions to this tho, in that playing all 4 tracks at once, whether mono or stereo, will blank out the sample pads. I think there r a few other quirky situations where the math gets thrown off a bit.

It does have mute groups tho, which can limit the chance of accidental sample overlap making voices cut out.

thanks ghost bazz! 8 note is actually very decent. my 303 is 8 note, and it's more than enough for me.

my 202 is 4 note and i still manage :lol: :lol: :lol:
