Roland debuted the CD-2 at NAMM last month. The CD-2, which records directly to CD or onto CompactFlash media (up to 2 GB capacity) can also be edited, processed and burned to CD.
A high-quality stereo microphone is built into the CD-2 for fast capture. External mics can be plugged in via the CD-2’s two XLR inputs, complete with phantom power. RCA inputs and outputs are provided for convenient connection to CD players and stereos. Quarter-inch inputs allow instruments to be directly connected as well.
Students will appreciate the CD-2’s usefulness as an educational/practice tool, featuring built-in stereo speakers, speed/pitch control, tuner and metronome. Lessons or musical passages can be recorded played back at a slower tempo while retaining the original pitch; pitch can be changed for play-along practice in different key signatures.
Enhance recording quality with the CD-2’s lineup of professional audio effects, such as reverb, EQ and compression.
