Post all your SP404 mk2 production tips, tricks, solutions and things you need help with here.
This is not an excuse not to read the manual or do any work yourself. If anything, it should be more about how you solved something so you can help save other people time and give back to the community.
That said, if you make an effort and can’t figure something out, post away! Let’s master this thing!
PS: While it sucks there is no PDF manual, the search function on the online one is actually pretty great. I have been able to find a lot of answers to my own questions quickly with that. Bookmark the manual to your phone.
Yesterday I switched over to a new project and enabled Ext Source to sample an iPad. Tons of noise flooded my headphones, even without anything plugged into the SP-404 Mk2’s inputs. I tried plugging the device’s power supply into another outlet and adjusting the SP-404 Mk2’s noise gate and was struggling to find out why I couldn’t record clean samples. Turns out I had 303 Vinyl Sim and another noisy effect enabled on Bus 3 & 4 from a previous project that carried over to the new project. I remembered hearing that the Bus effects choices were global and not per project but had forgotten. I breathed a sigh of relief knowing that the SP-404 Mk2 wasn’t malfunctioning.
Hi @all! New to this forum but have a long history with samplers and iOS music.
I have a question:
Is there a way to control the headphone volume independently from line out volume? (how does one use the cue functionality in a on stage situation?)
Indeed! When I did want to truncate from a too long sample, I did move the start and end outside of the desired loop to be sure not to regret missing a few bits later, then re-adjusted them after truncating. It’s a bit of work but better safe than sorry.
