Roland SP-808 Groove Sampler

Roland SP-808 Groove Sampler

Relase date: 1998
Type: Sampler/sequencer/hard disk recorder/virtual analogue synth/effects processor ALL IN ONE!


This is one of the many gifts from Roland to Liam. I don't know if Liam has really used this in his productions since he prefers his Akais and other tools, but this is anyway a really cool toy for anyone, so maybe he has at least played with it in his studio.
