Isla Instruments SP 2400 is a new hardware drum machine / sampler that is heavy inspired by the legendary EMU SP 1200. The developers don’t describe as a clone but as a spiritual successor. So it offers a dual audio engine, samples are easier to import, and so on.
Good news coming today from Isla Instruments. The SP 2400 is available now for pre-order for $949 USD and will go in production by the end of this year. Shipping is estimated for December 2019 or January 2020. Thus, the SP 2400 will make a finished product and many beat producers happy at the end of the year.
The spiritual successor to the greatest drum machine the world ever saw. ISLA Instruments founder, Brad Holland has been obsessed with drum machines for many years. Owning, repairing, restoring, modifying countless makes and models (see his crazy HR-16 mods on youtube).
The SP-2400 is nothing short of a passion project. Along with a small team of talented Software Engineers, CAD Engineers, and revered artists, we have developed, what we think is a future classic. Staying true to form in both sonic characteristics and design aesthetic were the main drivers in the realization of this project while bringing the hardware into the 21st Century and keeping the same ‘instant gratification’ and intuitiveness of its spiritual pre-predecessor at heart.
