Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Sampling is easy to do but, it's very difficult to precisely edit samples like you would expect with such a sampler. The idea of the SP404 is great but it needs a more engaging screen with more usefulness and less flash.
How is the tone?
Sound great no complaints at all. Sample quality is good.
Your general opinion of this product.
It's value is only as good as you find it useful. Sampling is fun but editing is a hassle. You'll either like it or not. It's a quick sampler and not something like the MPC. It's not made to be technical but it's made to be fast and effective and that it is.
Was this item an overall good value?
Yes, the value was pretty decent.
