Een nieuwe versie van de Roland SP-404 lijkt eraan te komen. Nu met 16 ipv 12 pads, velocity sensitive, een Buss FX en nog veel meer verbeteringen. Er is nog geen officiële aankondiging door Roland gedaan.
According to the alleged spec sheet, the MkII features 32 voices of polyphony, 17 velocity-sensitive pads, an OLED screen for waveform editing and upgrades under the hood that improve boot-up and project loading times.
The sheet also described an expanded effects section, which is said to keep the original’s library of processors and introduce fresh additions such as “Lo-fi, Cassette Simulator, and Resonator” along with a vocoder, guitar cab simulator and auto-pitch function accessible via mic/instrument input.
It was also suggested the MkII will feature 16GB of internal storage, along with a collection of 144 curated samples and a maximum of 160 samples loadable across each project.
As Roland hasn’t yet confirmed anything from the purported listing just yet, we have to wait for an official announcement to learn about other alleged features such as “DJ mode” and the “revamped sampling and sequencing workflow”. The alleged product listing also stated a price: $499.
