True, maybe it is better to buy in my local music shop when they arrive?

Look for a store with an appropriate return policy to dodge any release day show-stopping bug or major hardware faults. Given Roland's recent track record, I'd say the chances of an hardware issue happening are super low.

They tend to have quick firmware fixes for big release bugs. After that, how much firmware support they offer over mid/long term varies per products, but they've been increasingly better at it in the past few years, and I'm guessing the SP is an important product for them.

That said, if you are worried about lesser bugs and general early adoption annoyances, then assume you'll have to wait more or less a year to see if/how those bumps are ironed out. It takes time for things to stabilize.

That's strange - did you preorder before the ordering site was even up? I was receiving my order confirmation on Oct-13 at 10:47 CET, just minutes after the SP-404 MKII page went live. On Oct-15 at 22:33 I was notified that the estimated shipping date has been postponed from Nov-30 to Dec-17.

apart from the reviewer versions i think anyone else will be very lucky indeed to get a SP-404 MKii this side of new year.

The xmas backlog on everything moving around the world is going to make things very tough.

hope i'm wrong here of course but .. tentative arrival dates are quite speculative at best.

Sorry to keep asking questions but i can't find the answer to this one. On the SX I remember not being able to save bpm for different patterns. All of the patterns in the machine are tied to the same bpm so whenever I started a new project on the same SD card I had to write down all of the bpm then manually change them when switching projects. Does anybody know if it's the same for the mkii or if it can save the settings for each pattern or at least project? Thanks!
