You can capture sounds instantly onstage using the SP555’s Line or Mic Inputs, or through USB audio streaming — perfect for DJs or live performers who want to grab sounds and drop them in the mix on the fly. The SP555 supports up to 2GB CompactFlash for over 12 hours of recording with no-load playback!

Live Loop Capture
This innovative new feature lets you quickly grab a piece of incoming audio or a loop of your live performance and instantly play it back in perfect time with your other tracks. The loops can also be captured through the effects in real time and assigned to a pad for later use. You can even perform sound-on-sound layering with your loops.

Killer Performance Effects
From silky gloss to complete audio annihilation, the SP555 provides 37 types of powerful DSP effects to alter your sounds. Included in the lineup are Voice Transformer, Delay, Isolator, and the unique Super Filter and DJFX Looper, The Effect Memory allows for instant recall of your favorite settings using the pads with no glitching while switching effects.

Visual Magic
Amaze your audience with the SP555’s D BEAM and V-LINK features. Wave your hands over the invisible D BEAM to tweak the SP555’s filter, to trigger samples, or to play synth solos. Connect V-LINK compatible video equipment and sync the music to the visuals.

Computer Companion
The SP555 can be used by itself or with a PC. It can be used as an audio interface for the bundled Cakewalk SONAR LE software or any other DAW or DJ application on your computer!
