A friend of mine just got this Roland 404 the other day, and was trying to describe it to me on the phone last night. I saw this Youtube vid on it just now, and it looks like it might be a blast to mess around with.
YouTube - SP404 + Guitar - SLOW GROOVE Demo Tutorial
I have a project that I would like to do if I can ever get myself a real nice portable recorder, which involves weaving spoken word and environmental captured sounds into one another, and possibly inviting some people who are more musical than I am to be adding some guitar and percussion etc., too.
The portable recorder that I want is too much $ right now. Hoping it will come down over time.
Anyone else into this stuff ?
