Roland 404sx - using FX live


New member

Recently got a 404. It has taken me a while to figure it out, and what I got it for was to use live with a mixture of pre recorded drum/ bass samples and live samples and fx.

I was planning on making a bank for each song with the drums and bass on separate pads, and singing and playing piano with it live.

It seems you can't record live while playing something- is this correct?

Is it possible to have a sample playing and use the mic live accessing the fx?
If so, how do you make so the fx is acting upon the live input and not the selected sample.

Its quite new to me, any help would be appreciated.
