Roland

collapse expand iconDescription

Roland's RD-2000 is the ultimate stage piano for professional musicians. This innovative instrument features dual sound engines that power Roland's finest acoustic and electric pianos, as well as the most responsive keyboard action Roland has ever designed. With over 1,100 additional sounds and advanced master controller capabilities, the RD-2000 is equipped for any musical task.

Dual Sound Engines for Pristine Piano Tones

The RD-2000's dedicated acoustic piano engine utilizes Roland's latest modeling technologies to produce stunningly realistic grand piano sounds. Complex, multi-dimensional tones resonate with depth and clarity across the keyboard's full dynamic range. A second SuperNATURAL sound engine provides flawless recreations of classic electric pianos from the '60s, '70s and '80s, including the iconic RD-1000 and MKS-20.

PHA-50 Keyboard for Unparalleled Playability

The PHA-50 progressive hammer-action keyboard features hybrid keys made of wood and molded materials, combining the feel of an acoustic piano with rugged durability. Roland's advanced sensor and hammer mechanisms translate even the subtlest performances into precise sound. The PHA-50's slightly narrower keys and moderate key dip provide a familiar feel for experienced players while remaining accessible for beginners.

Intuitive Interface With Precision Control

During performances, the RD-2000's intuitive interface ensures effortless navigation. Eight knobs and nine sliders provide instant control over sounds and effects. Knobs feature LED indicators for precision adjustment and visual feedback on stage. Eight assignable zones enable you to map sounds to specific key ranges or create combination presets with up to eight layers. Save up to 100 keyboard setups to recall instantly during a show.

Over 1,100 Sounds for Any Genre

In addition to world-class pianos, the RD-2000 offers over 1,100 sounds for any musical style. SuperNATURAL technology provides expressive virtual tonewheel organs, synths, brass, strings and more. Two wave expansion slots allow you to load additional sounds from Roland's Axial website, including selections from previous RD models.

Advanced Master Controller Capabilities

With extensive connectivity and control options, the RD-2000 serves as an ideal command center for sophisticated setups. Easily integrate software instruments, hardware sound modules and more. Control external synths from the RD-2000's keyboard and route their audio through the RD-2000. A USB interface supports 24-bit/192kHz audio and Roland's new RAINLINK protocol for precise control of compatible software pianos.
