Roland SD-2u: SD Recorder

All-in-one SD recorder for audio recording, music practice and education

The SD-2u recorder is a powerful tool for musicians, educators and students. Combining high-quality SD recording with a host of useful features for music practice and general study, the SD-2u is great companion for anyone wanting to learn.

The SD-2u has two high-quality stereo microphones built into the front, as well as stereo speakers for listening back to what you just recorded. With everything you need in one small box (smaller than an A4 magazine), recording audio is fast and simple.

You can connect your own external mics, electronic musical instruments and other devices with pro-level results. Also onboard are tools for training and learning, including high-fidelity key and speed adjustment, improved Centre Cancel for creating minus-one tracks, and the all-new Centre Focus for isolating vocals and instruments. Compact, powerful and ready to travel, the SD-2u is the perfect for audio recording, learning music and languages, and much more.

Everything you need to create professional recordings

Small, battery powered and with mics and speakers onboard, the SD-2u gives you everything you need to record, edit and play audio, wherever you are. The built-in stereo mic makes audio capture easy, while high-performance stereo speakers provide convenient sound playback of your recordings, WAV music files, lesson material, and more.

Easy, fast high-resolution recording

The SD-2u records CD-quality audio direct to widely available SD/SDHC memory cards. It’s also super-simple for anyone to operate thanks to the Easy Guide feature, which provides clear onscreen instructions that guide you through various operations. Easy Guide covers recording and overdubbing functions, creating minus-one tracks for practice and karaoke, setting proper input levels, and more. You can even choose among six different languages for the display: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, or Japanese.

Connect external mics, musical instruments or music players
While it’s designed for professional results as a standalone unit, the SD-2u also includes connections to attach external devices (like musical instruments or music players) for various applications. Two XLR/TRS combo jacks allow you to connect your own mics (with phantom power available if needed), including a stereo field-recording mic such as the CS-15RS. There’s also a stereo mini-mic jack with Plug In Power, plus stereo RCA LINE IN jacks for connecting an instrument, music player, or another audio source.

Helps with music practice, learning languages, reviewing lectures and much more

The SD-2u is equipped with powerful features for manipulating audio playback, providing useful tools for developing music skills, learning languages, transcribing spoken-word audio, and more. You can independently adjust the speed and key with exceptional audio quality, perfect for slowing down passages to learn difficult parts or changing the key of music to suit your voice. Use A-B Repeat to play audio sections over and over, and turn on Centre Cancel to create minus-one tracks for practice and karaoke fun. There’s also a newly developed Centre Focus feature, which isolates centre-located sounds in music tracks to make them easier to hear and learn.

Robust carrying case protects your recorder

The optional CB-CD2E Carrying Case protects the SD-2u and can also store accessories like SD media, batteries, remote, etc. If you’re looking for similar features in a device that can also play and burn CDs, check out the SD-2u’s cousin, the CD-2u SD/CD Recorder.

Paul at Keysound provided excellent, friendly, professional, patient help, support and service and did not try to hard sell anything.
He gave great advice and showed us how different pianos sounded by playing different genres of music on different pianos with different budget ranges.
We are absolutely thrilled with the piano we purchased and it was delivered to us within a week of us purchasing it and it was installed perfectly by the delivery team

I have been with Keysound many years and since day one they have not only been a great company but they offer a ongoing support to their customers second to none.The staff Steve and Paul and the late Nigel who is greatly missed are always there for you and have always continued to be both progressive and supportive and with their latest venture during Keysound TV something no one should miss.

I bought my electronic piano here some time ago. The owner was exceptionally nice and welcoming. He helped me to transport the piano to my apartment. I am a Chinese student and my English is not very good, but the owner was especially patient in communicating with me.
