Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.26

Now I’m behind on getting updates to 3.0. This still covers firmware 2.01, but I’ll be pivoting to 3.0 soon, I promise. I’m just excited to see 3.0 drop, and this update was really just to get me back in the habit of writing updates, in prep for whenever something big happened. Last week IContinue reading “Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.26”

Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.25

So… a lot has happened over the last four(?!) months, for me personally… not so much the mk2 guide. Let’s see, where to start? I got my first donation of $5 over at, super cool, and big thanks. I know I keep telling you all it’s not necessary (it isn’t), and I keep doingContinue reading “Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.25”

Given this rather weak update for the mk2, my suspicion is that we’re not likely to see anything terriblyContinue reading “Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.22”

Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.21

I know I’ve said I wouldn’t try to recreate the manual,Continue reading “Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.21”

Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.20

This is mostly about restructuring the guide… and setting it up for a more consumable future. First, didn’t mean to take so long, or be such a small update overall, but I guess I fell off the working on the mk2 wagon. Part of my time went to wrapping up artwork for a children’s bookContinue reading “Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.20”

Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.18

So Pattern Mode and the related topics are more or less done now. Well, between continuing writing up the guide, and making videos, I guess it’s out there and seems to be helping people out. I’ve been getting a bit of folks posting here or there. If you’ve written me a message someplace and IContinue reading “Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.18”
