When paired with the TR-8 Rhythm Composer, the SP-404A can be easily triggered via MIDI for syncopated beat and sample production.Through intuitive and meticulous design, the TR-08 can also act as an audio sub-mixer and processor for the SP-404A. Whilst in this format, every sample played through the unit can be altered through the implementation of the TR-8's Scatter feature. With the ability to reverse, glitch, gate, truncate, stutter and much more, you possess the ability to dictate your sound like never before.
To get beginners up to speed with sample looping, the SP-404A comes fitted with an SD card filled with a whole library of sounds from the sample developing titans, Loopmasters. Whilst designed to complement the TR-8, the SP-404A's elasticity sees it able operate as a fully functional standalone sampler with built-in mic and battery operation.
