Learning how to use your new Roland SP-808/SP-808EX has never been easier thanks to the official Roland DVD Owner's Manual!

The SP-808 Groove Sampler is the first product of its kind—a sampling and recording workstation which is one part professional-quality phrase sampler; one part hard disk audio recorder. Developed to meet the needs of a growing "remix" and sampling-based music market, the SP-808 provides everything DJs, sampling musicians and remix artists need to lay down fat grooves and create professional-quality remixes.

While this DVD is shot exclusively using the original SP-808, users of the SP-808EX will be able to use this DVD as well.

Take your SP-808 skills to the next level and pick up the official Roland DVD Tutorial today!

Get it if you own a SP-808.

I've owned my SP-808 for 14 years. This DVD taught me how to use my vintage hardware very quickly (the manual is very, very dry....) The video production is very 90's, but so is the SP-808 and the information conveyed stands the test of time. If you have a SP-808 order it. There is nothing available on youtube or any online forum as comprehensive and easily conveyed as this.
