The Roland RD-2000 Next Generation RD Stage Piano Black is equipped with two sound engines with a dedicated piano engine, 1100 sounds, eight knobs, nine sliders, and eight assignable zones. The Roland RD-2000 delivers an unmatched performance on stage and in the studio by blending evolved piano technologies with extensive modern control, this next-generation instrument takes the industry-standard stage piano series to new levels of inspiration and creativity.
Featuring dual sound engines and incredibly fine action, this piano contains a huge selection of high-quality ensemble sounds to cover any musical task, as well as two wave expansion slots for adding even more sounds. The dedicated acoustic engine features full-keyboard polyphony, whilst a second SuperNATURAL-based sound engine gives you access to a wide range of classic electric pianos from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s.
The PHA-50 progressive hammer-action keyboard with escapement is ideal for playing the RD-2000’s responsive acoustic and electric pianos. This innovative keyboard features hybrid keys constructed of wood and plastic materials, combining a classic feel with rugged durability. Together with Roland’s advanced sensor mechanism and hammer-action design, the PHA-50 delivers an authentic grand piano touch.
An intuitive interface helps you navigate this stage piano during live performances with ease thanks to eight knobs and nine sliders that provide instant control for sounds, effects, and more. The knobs feature LED indicators for precise adjustment with instant visual feedback. The RD-2000 features eight assignable zones that allow you to map sounds to different key ranges, or create combination sounds with up to eight layers. With the Scene function you can save 100 different snapshots of the entire keyboard setup and recall them with a quick button touch while performing.
Equipped with Roland’s classic pitch/mod lever and two modulation wheels, the RD-2000 provides expressive options for any performance style. The dual wheels are useful for detailed sound adjustment on external synths, and are independently assignable per program. The RD-2000’s dynamic encoder knobs respond to velocity, allowing you to execute precise edits with slow movements and quickly move through tones and parameters with fast movements.
The RD-2000 includes over 1,100 additional sounds for covering any style of music with just one instrument. Roland’s SuperNATURAL technology provides highly expressive Virtual Tone Wheel organs, modern and vintage synths, clavinet, orchestral strings, brass, and many other sound types. At Roland’s Axial sound website, you’ll find more sounds to load into the RD-2000’s two wave expansion slots, including selections from previous RD instruments.
The RD-2000 contains a USB audio/MIDI interface making it easy to integrate software instruments with a studio DAW or laptop running your favourite host software on stage. The interface supports 24-bit audio at rates up to 192 kHz allowing you to access your highest quality sounds. With its versatile outputs, the RD-2000 is ready to connect with any stage or studio setup, including main stereo outs provided on XLR and 1/4″ jacks, and there’s also a sub output that allows you to route internal sounds and USB audio independently. The RD-2000’s four pedal inputs can be configured for damper pedals, expression pedals, and more. A DP-10 pedal is included for damper pedal operation.
