Roland SP-404/SX questions

Post by OlicanRacer » Mon Apr 20, 2015 7:19 pm

I play electric bass and wanted a sampler to use as a live pad for samples while i am playing. i am heavily into effects pedals. i see that the 404-sx can only use one effect at a time. can i do some kind of send/return loop into my effects pedals to use more than one effect or other effects on a sample?

one of my pedals is a loop station and can record one track with the capability of over dubbing on the fly.

Yes you can run the 404 into your effects pedals. Of course you can, you can run anything with an audio output into effects pedals.

You can also put an effect on a sample, then re sample it to another pad, then add an effect to that, then resample and so on....

sunce when can the 404sx only use 1 effect at a time? do you mean one per sample? because different samples can have different fx, and as mentioned above theres always resampling
i guess all those jokes about bass players must be true!
