SP Technical Specifications

                                                                                          


16-bit sample player manufactured by Peavey Electronics Corp. from 1989 to 1991.
16 note polyphony (mono samples), 8 note polyphony (stereo samples).
Sample Rate adjustable from 12 kHz. to 48 kHz.
Four outputs with full panning configurable as: two stereo pairs, two mono outs and one stereo pair, or four mono outs.
Comes standard with 2 M of memory; can be expanded to 32 M for a total of 190 sec. stereo or 380 sec. mono ( @44.1 kHz.).
Uses Macintosh 30 pin (non-parity) SIMM's ; 1 or 4 M (in pairs).
Loads samples via: SCSI, floppy disk, or audio from the SX / SXII.
MIDI : 16 part multi-timbrial; omni, poly, and multi modes.
MIDI In, Thru, and Out ports.
Dual 25 pin SCSI connectors, internal termination on or off via internal DIP resistor networks.
Multiple units can be cascaded to increase memory and polyphony.
200 Waves, 200 Tones, 128 Maps, 128 Presets.
Architecture: Waves-Tones-Maps-Presets-Global.
Wave Parameters include: Forward Looping, Stereo Merge of two mono samples into one stereo sample,Wave naming, tuning, and copying.
Tone parameters include: DCO, DCA, and DCF with fully assignable modulation sources,adjustable modulation polarity, three stage envelope, passive filters, panning, assignable LFO, wave start modulation, Tone naming and copying.
Map parameters include: zone width, tone assign, transposition, volume, pan, output assign, 8 voice allocation groups, Map naming and copying.
Preset parameters include: controller assignments, Map layering, detuning, crossfading, velocity switching, range switching, maximum polyphony, voice allocation, pitch bend and transpose amounts, master DCF, DCA, pan and filter cutoff, Preset naming and copying.
Global parameters include: MIDI receive mode, Multi mode edit, SCSI parameters, Master Tuning and Volume, Note and Display Options.
Supports SMDI (SCSI Musical Data Interchange).
Latest software version: v2.10; allows the SP to read Akai S-1000 data (via SCSI only).

Pros:

Clean sound, expandable to 32 M, easy to edit, 8-way velocity switching, reads Akai S-1000 data, inexpensive, separate sampling and playback units, SCSI, SMDI, one rack space.

Cons:

Passive filters, 16 note polyphony, no sample reverse, no effects, only reads Akai S-1000 data, only supports forward looping, four outputs.

Current Street Value:

$50.00 - $100.00 US
