Roland SP-404 Mk2

thanks mate!

Much appreciated! Thank you

a bit off topic i suppose.
but gonna share a beat album that has that sp vibe and its never been really discussed.
to me actually is up there next to madlibs madvillain, dillas donuts and is not like a madvillain copy or anything, its different but inspired by those and its got the vibes and the chaos
so here you go one of my faves

I think that is produced by Geoff Barrow from Portishead under his Fuzz face moniker.
His beats are always amazing.
Like this Pharcyde remix.

Made my first full track with the MKII. Really pleased at how it sounds like the music I usually make. Had a great time making it as well. Just some extra bits and pieces added before mastering.

I had cyber-beef w/ him, when he dissed NY. :joy: Told him that joint Beth did with Rustin Man was the best thing she ever did.

One of the best beat tapes around. Awesome album!

:joy: Poor guy. I’m blaming you for his anemic output with Beth ever since.

My Analog Cases 404 case arrived and fits the mkii fine. Pretty simple but will be a good way to keep all the cables together and will be good if I need to toss it into a backpack for travel. Plenty of room for cables, unlike with my Zoom H6 case from them, which I like but doesn’t have much extra room.

Do you think I could fit a battery pack which is the size of a large mobile phone and 2 or 3 times as thick?

The Anker PowerCore Essential 20000 fits no problem. You can check the size online and see if it’s the same.

mmm not sure, the PowerCore is 15.8 x 7.45 x 1.92 cm and mine is 20.9 x 19.6 x 5.2 cm (it’s this model)

Edit: oops, that was the package dimension for mine, I re-read and it’s definitely not 5 cm high :slight_smile:It’s close to 17 x 8 x 2 cm. Would fit I guess.

Thanks!

O noooo.

How did you get the sp-audio back into bitwig?

Addit.
Was hoping to use this as an interface.

He pissed me off so much! :joy:

I’d be careful with putting a battery inside the case like that. One time I put another instrument’s case on top of the Analog Cases case that I have for my model cycles. The weight on top pushed my light-weight anker battery down onto the encoders, leaving a temporary marker from the netting of the case on an encoder. Luckily it didn’t do any permanent damage, but more weight may have. Just an fyi

Cool. I was just measuring for @amaury. I actually use Eneloop Pro batteries in mine, so not planning to put the battery in the case. Good to know though.

And where do you put the Eneloop battery charger? :wink:
