Overview
  • 1Description

The SD-2u SD Recorder from Roland can be used to record audio directly to SD and SDHC cards. It features built-in stereo microphones as well as two combination XLR/TRS microphone inputs with 48V phantom power for miking flexibility. It also accepts audio from a 1/8" plug in power mic input as well as stereo RCA line inputs. The SD-2u is also designed to be used as a training tool and features a built-in tuner and metronome as well as playback speed and key adjustment. These features allow you to slow a song down to learn a difficult passage or adjust its key to suit your voice. Roland's Center Focus feature allows you to isolate a track's mono sounds, such as vocals, to make them easier to hear and learn. The included wireless remote allows you to start and stop recording from a distance. The SD-2u can be powered by six AA batteries or the included AC adapter.

Intuitive Operation
The SD-2u records CD-quality audio direct to SD/SDHC memory cards. The Easy Guide feature provides 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 English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, or Japanese for the display language
Connect External Mics and Other Devices
While it can be used as a standalone unit, the SD-2u also provides connections to integrate external devices 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 mics. There is also a stereo mini-mic jack with Plug In Power, plus stereo RCA LINE IN jacks for connecting an instrument, music player, or other audio source
Your Education and Practice Partner
The SD-2u has tools not only for developing music skills, but also other applications such as 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 match your voice. Use A-B Repeat to play audio sections over and over, and turn on Center Cancel to create minus-one tracks for practice and karaoke. There's also the Center Focus feature, which isolates center-located sounds in music tracks to make them easier to hear and learn
