The synths are way better sounding than my Korg Ms2000, much fuller, i use the Korg for Midi control and its alot quicker and easier that way, the Drum sounds are fantastic, theres not a single thing i dont like about this unit soundwise, thats not to say its without fault, it has alot of draw backs, But coming from reason for a few years this was a breath of life to my music! its just got the pro full and sometimes warm sound that reason just cannot replicate, i Love it, nice effects too. I make Christian Trance music, 1999 style! :D would recomend as part of a setup, if you wonna use the sequencer( which i also love! )its spot on in most cases when your making patterns, but when you wonna string patterns together for a song, if u got a busy mix going on, it gets out of time when changing between patterns. There is a bit of noise yes, but it's not too high, and if you ask me, it adds to its character and gives it a denser sound! Still better than reason for its sound quality! Peace be with you! GOD BLESS!

This IS a very useful piece of gear. Lots of great Roland ROM/RAM sounds, good MIDI specs, effects, and a great 8 track sequencer.(You can have up to 32 measures per pattern) KryPtK display, so you need a manual. As mentioned by another reviewer, it only has RCA outs, but if your MUSIC is any GOOD, this shouldn't matter. I for one, am never impressed by "pristine audio quality". If that were the case, I'd have to throw out all my Teddy Wilson and Art Tatum recordings now, wouldn't I?

The D2 is a great little synth at a bargain price.

this is my 2nd d2. yes it looks like crap,but as i found out on the d2 yahoo user forum, just use vinly spray paint or carpaint. anyway-got mine for $100.you can't even get a plugin for that kind of money!! 600 sounds(?)all together.you can use the mc505 editor which i like but i mostly use a mac...mine freezes sometimes when using an oxygen8 to record if i have alot of notes & controller data going on ect.... .i like the mofx....lofi for boards of canada sounds.. .cheap platstic but the sounds are decent i like the 909,cr78,606,727,606 sounds...also cool to have space for user partches..-just muck them up with the effects and filters ect!!a hell of a deal at 100$ new in the box!!! rca outs really cheap roland.comon what the hell could 1 standard stereo out have cost? i guess the dj market this was aimed at so hence the rca's?? **well i like how it is so light and tiny i can take it anywhere!!if anyone knows of a mac editor let me know!!not much info on this unit online,but i guess mc505 sites would pertain to this as well!!

What's up I bought my d2 3 months ago and I have no idea with the words and term the manual gives. I'm in the millitary , do to the long hours we work I just don't have time to get a full understanding of what I'm doing. I'm learning but too slowy. I'm a rapper(I get stuck in between writing songs and trying to make beats) and I inquery beats daily to increase my stlyle.My brother is also here in Japan with me also, he recently bought a SXRoland keyboard syn. and he has already made 18 songs that just make the Groove box look silly.But that not true because I hear wonderful sounds from the factory tunes. I need to ask someone a question for time to time . Is it anyway possible I can call you for help?

This is a great piece of kit. Being an MC303 owner and considering the price of the D2 I was hoping for a cut down version of the MC505. Instead, it has every single patch and drum kit that the MC505 has and more! What's more I can hook up my SH32 to it and use the front control panels to easily edit the D2 patches and save them to the 256 user slots on the D2. I think this would be harder to do using the D2's alone control's though so I would also recommend some kind of external controller. Great possibilities for making music, I say.
