Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.22

The update is mostly focussed on the Midi and Companion App chapters I suppose the “big news” is that firmware version 1.15 dropped. It fixes a couple of bugs, I don’t think I ever hit them. 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

The update is mostly focussed on system settings. The big section update is for the Chapter on the Utility menu, and for at least System, Pad Set, and EFX Set, I have added as much color and detail as possible without loosing my mind. 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.

Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.17

Boy, another big update. I was planning on moving to a weekly schedule for updates to be more consistent, but these bigger updates also feel more draining. I’ll have to think about it. Most of this update is just writing up the effects section, and I tried to stick to give my thoughts and adviceContinue reading “Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.17”

Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.15

This update focus on the Sample Mode section, and I dumped in some of the related topics like Chromatic, Cue, and other things that can help determine how a pad may play. Further, I spent probably way too much time to figure out how End Mark works, but I figured it out and documented it.Continue reading “Roland SP-404 mk2 Guide v0.15”
