Yeah. Copped a 404A about a year and a half ago, would of got an SX but.....JAPAN...nah
Glad that Roland have actually engaged with the huge amount of people using these units (404day etc) and fed all that back into this new one...
I would get the MKII altho i'd like to know if i can sync my A with it and obviously we are all waiting for a full review.
I'm in the UK so have no idea what the retail price will be, i hope its in line with the previous SP's
Nice congrats on the purchase. I need to check out your beats see how you've been using the A.
I've got a 303, 505 and og 404 (pic of set up in next post). Having those 3 especially the 505 the SX was kinda underwhelming to me, the A basically the same thing.
Sync over midi should be fine but from what I've seen so far I can see myself using this standalone without anything else.
You're right this new joint feels like everything I've wanted without turning it into a tablet with buttons like the newer mpcs. I thought if they ever refreshed the sp they'd turn the whole led screen and dedicated fx button area into one phone sized touchscreen...that would have put me off but this seems like the perfect compromise for me.
Loads of in depth videos already. They've done it like most of the products over recent years where all the youtube cats have had it for a while then drop the vids all on one day. There's some long arse vids here but I'll list a few tutorial style and first impressions.
but OG Roland head Mike Acosta has easy to the point vid.
UK here as well so price wise I've seen $500 street price on several news articles but that would make a direct exchange for us £366 which I'm pretty sure is way too cheap.
Seen it pre-order listed for £439 on Gear4music
and Music Matter
apparently shipping in November.
From everything I've seen my GAS levels are at peak intensity.
