Roland SP Beat Tape Contest

April 4 being #404Day, Roland is launching a new creator contest for tracks made with the Roland SP-404 Sampler.

#SPbeattape is the hashtag for the 404 contest, referencing Roland’s SP-404 line of samplers and sampling workstations.

The contest requires beatmakers to create a new track with a Roland SP sampler, upload it to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or YouTube by May 5 with the #SPbeattape hashtag and wait for the winners to be announced on May 12. Roland has also packaged together some royalty-free samples contestants can use.

Sixteen artists will be selected to appear on the inaugural Roland SP Beat Tape.

Terms and conditions are inevitable, and all six pages of them can be read here.
