A real powerhouse of a keyboard, the Roland RD-2000 supersedes the RD-800 as their latest flagship stage piano. Both stage and studio friendly, professionals will flock to the RD-2000's unmatched performance, blending evolved piano technologies with extensive modern control. Two independent sound engines, an intuitive interface, and an extensive sound bank make the Roland RD-2000 a winner that would make a great centerpiece to any users rig.

Two Independent Sound Engines
Dual sound engines provide users with a variety of tonal options. The Roland RD-2000 features Roland's SuperNATURAL-based sound engine, giving you access to a wide range of classic electric pianos, just like the RD-800. Unlike the RD-800, the RD-2000 incorporates Roland's V-Piano technology as well, a dedicated acoustic engine providing users with magnificent acoustic piano sounds.

Intuitive Interface
The intuitive interface featured on the RD-2000 makes navigating during live performances fast and easy. Eight knobs and nine sliders allow you instant control over sounds, effects, and more, giving the user the ability to adjust their sound on the fly and adapt to any playing situation thrown at them. There are also eight assignable zones, for combining internal sounds and external sources, making the RD-2000 a practical and flexible stage piano.

Extensive Sound Bank
In addition to world class-piano sounds, the RD-2000 includes over 1,100 additional sounds for covering any style of music with just one keyboard. Whether you're in need of organs, synths, strings, or brass, the RD-2000 provides you with every possible sound that you could need. You can find more sounds to load into the RD-2000 at Roland's Axial sound website as well. Take into account that you can adjust pitch, tone, attack and sustain of each individual note, and there really is nothing that this keyboard can't do.

Features:

  • Two independent sound engines and modern controller features
  • PHA-50 keyboard features hybrid wood and molded construction
  • Eight knobs with LED indicators and nine sliders for real-time control of sounds and effects
  • Over 1100 non-piano sounds, including organs, strings, brass, synths, and many others

Outstanding Keyboard

The RD-2000 has exceeded all of my expectations. Action: I purchased the RD-2000 primarily for its action. I also play a baby grand piano regularly and the feel of the RD-2000 is so close that it is a pleasure to play with minimal adjustment. For those not accustomed to an acoustic piano it may feel heavy, though perhaps adjusting the Key Touch to a lighter setting may help. Sounds: I was sold on the RD-2000's VPiano sounds. Plenty of digital pianos do just as good a job (or better) at reproducing a single note played in isolation. The RD-2000 shines when you play it as a whole instrument. When you play an acoustic piano it sounds like more than just the individual notes due to how the strings interact with one another. The RD-2000 reproduces a lot of that feeling. One thing that really surprised me is how much I also enjoy some of the other sounds: the vintage electric pianos are very rich, the bass sounds have a very solid realistic sound. Even though I bought the RD-2000 primarily as a piano and was going to use a DAW for everything else, I can see myself incorporating more of the RD-2000 sounds. For those not using a DAW, the RD-2000 has a respectable collection of strings, pads, leads, synth brass, etc. Controls: there are a lot of buttons, knobs, and sliders. Adjusting the effects is a breeze - much more intuitive than with instruments that force you to edit every parameter via an LCD display. And since it is easier, I find myself exploring and tweaking the settings a lot more than with other instruments. Program and tone selection is simple and fast. The zones are flexible and once you have them set up the way you want switching active zones is just a button press. Overall this is an amazing instrument.

Switching wasn't as hard as I thought it would be

I use this as my stage piano. It was time for a change from my Yamaha which I've played for over a decade. I love the action of the keys, the built in patches as well as quick shortcuts to effects along with easy edits. My favorite feature is the Organ and drawbar capabilities along with the real Leslie effect. Great instrument and I am still learning more about it. Check the You Tube video reviews as well. It helped my decision to buy.

Great Piano - bad Transpose

I have had several Roland keyboards over the years. Roland XV-88, Roland XP-80, etc. Overall I like the sounds and most features of the keyboard. However, I am highly disappointed with the function and placement of the Transpose button. After playing the XV-88 for years, which had the best Transpose button / function, the Transpose button on the RD2000 is almost useless. I would request that the Transpose button and function be changed back to compare with that of the XV-88. Since I use the Transpose button to modulate one half step during the song, the placement of the button is very awkward and you are forced to take your right hand off of the keyboard to transpose. Also, if you press the button and bump a note at the same time, you have no idea what key you will get because the Transpose value will be reset! Again, with the XV or XP that was never an issue. The Transpose setting is cleared when the unit is powered off. It must be reset every time the keyboard is powered on. The setting cannot be saved with the set ups. IF you forget and start playing, you have a problem. I called customer support to request a software change to give me the option to save the setting in the set up and for touching the note to not affect the transpose value, but was told that would not happen. He said most people save the set up with key shifted in the set up. That means instead of using Transpose, you change to a different set. That does not work well when modulating during a song. Roland, PLEASE change the Transpose to function like the XV-88... Or at least give a parameter to turn off "setting Transpose value by touching the note" and allow ability to save the setting.
