    UTILIZATION

    Configuration gnrale Is it easy?
    Yes, it's simple.


    The edition of sound effects or is it easy?
    -For the record I really regret that the loop offers only 15 seconds of recording and even more limiting measures 4 ... which for the treatment of samples request to have duplicates on the pads. <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt="sad" />
    It is the solution "sampling" (via the input line) but does not save a sample reading (it's really the box).
    -For the selection of midi channels when using a sequencer (for me a QY100) it's really annoying having to reboot the machine.......

    Shorten a sample is feasible but not really ergonomic trs (I rebalance my sounds on the computer and then re-injected after cross).
    I do not know why but it refuses to sync at the BPM with my DDR880 (although it's Roland?) With the remainder rolls well.
    A-effect: a sound we must save it to another pad to add an effect.

    The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
    Yes, it is clear even in English ca is simple, the functionality is not well Retailer explanations are not good when beginners on this machine.


    SOUNDS

    The A / D and D / A are transparent?
    To do that, go from analog (K7, instruments, ect ..) and I do the same comparison using sounds recorded on my computer through my sound card and a sampler of all colors m its me ... I want to say that a smell numrique, you lose a little of some frquences, it gets a little colder and less vibrant. APRS is what it is Dranga? melted in a mix is ​​less agreement.


    Effects and filters are effective?
    -The effects are nice, you can reach things that take place (in the controls of the effects I find 3 buttons that trs very edge, just want to limit it). Some stuff is really horrible and evil sound (the octave is zero!), The D-Beam is trs gadget, the synths associates are just ugly.


    The dynamic is it respect? ...
    Oul ... when you returned something not expect out of the store with the same thing better, I found a very destructive at this level but for my use the Lo-fi I ' in doing this is not a big worry.


    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you use it?
    -2 Years.


    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    "It's a big toy. To me there is nothing really but it is pro trs agrbale a hack.


    Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    -Also at the Roland 404 and 606, as its numro suggests it is between the two with some benefits did possde neither one nor the other.


    How do you report qualitprix?
    "It's a bit expensive even when I bought it new, but if I had the choice again I purchase.


    Exprience with, you will do again this choice? ...
    While the non-! <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="biggrin" /> Trs is funny, I fiddle with much but I'm not a DJ and home studio use the gadget really want absolutely no luxury of a machine to produce sounds and work.

    Features beautiful on paper but actually much more disappointing. 15 sec. max of the loop station are a disgrace and have no technical justification. In addition, the other big problem is the inability to resample with an entry input active. In short, if you want to record a sample of more than 15 seconds to add another sound to the input audio is simply impossible. To think! Now! SP 303 The old saw no problem ... This allowed to do so without a problem multitrack. The SP 555 is a regression in this size! 15 sec ... it's foutage of g.

    UTILIZATION

    Ergonomist. Simple. No need to manually (at first). The effects are numerous but coarse, and ultimately very little use. We would have preferred fewer but more mature. Quantity cons quality. Damage.

    SOUNDS

    The converters are the main problem of this machine. Forget the "Ext Source" is a disaster! The hole in the high frequencies is incredible equalizer and the machine does nothing to compensate. It must go through the RCA is better but not yet at the SP converter 303. Second regression technique.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have the machine for 1 year, I do not count (for now) without them. Nevertheless, I regret this purchase (the strong opinions glowing below I was somewhat misleading. These guys have to work for Roland. I do not see any other explanation ...).
    For non-DJs (I am), this machine can be useful in the first phase composition, particularly to throw first musical scraps, make a few loops, develop some demos without the requirement for sound quality (mostly not) .

    I forgot: the transfer of a sample of "loop capture" one of the pads will cause a loss of clear sound quality of the sample.

    A tip: for the same price as buying an SP 333 and an RC 20 XL.
