Los Angeles, CA (August 30, 2004)–Roland has introduced the SP-606, a new-generation sampling workstation that combines sampling, phrase sequencing, audio editing, effects, performance tools, computer connectivity and soft-synthesis into one package.
Pro-quality digital audio can be captured with the SP-606’s 8-voice sampling engine by recording directly from the built-in stereo inputs and digital input, or via USB for drag-and-drop WAV/AIF file exchange. Samples can be twisted, sliced and sculpted internally and/or with the companion PC software.
Audio loops can be time-stretched and locked to sequences in real time thanks to the SP-606’s BPM sync control and internal 4-track MIDI sequencer. Audio-processing power is built into the SP-606 in the form of two effects engines. For polished, radio-ready final mixes, the user can tap into the SP-606’s mastering effects. Finished projects can be exported via the SP-606’s digital output.
