Roland SP-404 MKII 2.0 Firmware Update brings TR-style sequencing, new effects algorithms including "Cloud Delay", "SX Delay", "SX Reverb" and "BackSpin", workflow enhancements, bug fixes and much more.

After extensive research and ample community feedback, Roland has refined its famed SP sampler with the new SP-404MKII v2.0. This revamped sampler and effector is better than ever, with an enhanced VariPhrase Encoder algorithm and an expanded MFX library, including Harmony Effects for endless performance possibilities. For the first time, creators can add TR-REC style step sequencing, an all-new recording mode existing alongside traditional real-time pattern recording — just one of many innovative new features for SP users.
