Roland Updates SP-404MKII Sampler With v2.0 Firmware, Adding TR-REC Style Step Sequencing & More
Roland has released a free firmware update for the SP-404MKII SP Sampler.
The revamped sampler and effector is better than ever, with an enhanced VariPhrase Encoder algorithm and an expanded MFX library, including Harmony Effects for endless performance possibilities. For the first time, creators can also use TR-REC style step sequencing, an all-new recording mode existing alongside traditional real-time pattern recording.
