Breakin' Out The Roland S-550

Dusted off the old discs and fired up my trusty Roland S-550, looking for some new sounds (actually old sounds) for the soundtrack of Rat Rod Rockers! The Roland is in the top rack space and has an external mouse and monitor (green screen on the right). It was state of the art back in the 1980's. It only holds a few seconds of samples on each disc, so you had to use the space very sparingly. Looping sounds on this machine is an art form! I have thousands of sounds collected over the decade I used this box extensively in my music. Memories...
