Real-time Audio Toolkit for DJs, Producers, & Sample-Based Musicians

The newest member of the SP-sampler family breaks ground with innovative features such as Loop Capture, and Super Filter. The SP-555 is fast and powerful, but one thing has been preserved from previous SP models: fun! It's the ultimate toolkit for DJs, producers, sample-based musicians, or performers who want to take their act to the next level.

  • Ultra-easy sampling with innovative Loop Capture feature
  • Versatile sampling through Line input, phantom-powered Mic input, USB audio streaming, and WAV/AIFF import
  • Dozens of killer performance effects, including Super Filter and DJFX Looper
  • Audio interface capability with any DAW or DJ audio application (Cakewalk SONAR LE included)
  • Large Sample Memory via Compact Flash (up to 2GB)
  • Bundled Wave Converter software (Mac and PC) for importing and exporting WAV/AIFF files
  • Infrared D BEAM controller and V-LINK compatibility for high-impact performance

Quick, EZ, Versatile Sampling

You can capture sounds instantly onstage using the SP-555's Line or Mic Inputs, or through USB audio streaming - perfect for DJs or live performers who want to grab sounds and drop them in the mix on the fly. The SP-555 supports up to 2GB Compact Flash for over 12 hours of recording with no-load playback!

Live Loop Capture

This innovative new feature lets you quickly grab a piece of incoming audio or a loop of your live performance and instantly play it back in perfect time with your other tracks. The loops can also be captured through the effects in real time and assigned to a pad for later use. You can even perform sound-on-sound layering with your loops.

Killer Performance FX

From silky gloss to complete audio annihilation, the SP-555 provides 37 types of powerful DSP effects to alter your sounds. Included in the line-up are Voice Transformer, Delay, Isolator, and the unique Super Filter and DJFX Looper, The Effect Memory allows for instant recall of your favourite settings using the pads with no glitching while switching effects.

Visual Magic

Amaze your audience with the SP-555's D BEAM and V-LINK features. Wave your hands over the invisible D BEAM to tweak the SP-555's filter, to trigger samples, or to play synth solos. Connect V-LINK compatible video equipment and sync the music to the visuals. The beam in the photo has been coloured to show the path of the D BEAM; the actual beam is invisible.

Computer Companion

The SP-555 can be used by itself or with a PC. It can be used as an audio interface for the bundled Cakewalk SONAR LE software or any other DAW or DJ application on your computer! With the bundled Wave Converter software, WAV and AIFF files can be imported and assigned to a CF card for use in the SP-555 (CF reader needed).

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region

Choose the region you are shopping from to view products in your currency.

We have temporarily suspended processing of EUR payments, all orders will be charged in GBP.
