The SP-505 is an advanced sampling workstation aimed at the electronic, hip hop and dance market. The SP-505 is centered around working with one-shot samples, loops, grooves, and drum beats through an intuitive set of sampling, sequencing and performance-oriented features.
The Sp-505 sports 8 voices of polyphony and 4MB of internal sampling. It is expandable up to 128MB via SmartMedia Cards. Also onboard are 26 effects (same as the SP-303) including Isolator, Filter+Drive, Slicer, Reverb, Tape Echo, Vinyl Simulator, and more! All of the effects can be controlled in real-time using the knobs or even re-sampled to another pad. There's also an "EXT SOURCE" pad to mix/process the external audio-in source in real-time.
The SP-505 is a compact, all-in-one groove machine, phrase sampler, sequencer, and effects processor which is sure to streamline the production process in your studio.
