Roland D2

Roland D 2, Groovbox with D- Field, 600 Preset Patterns u. 30 Drumkits

The D2 Groovebox is the first compact groove music workstation to benefit from Roland's D-Field Controller technology. This touch-sensitive pad makes it easy to program and modify patterns, sounds, effects and more simply by touching the surface. There's also 150 all-new patterns including the latest 2-Step and R&B styles.

  • Performance-oriented Groovebox (sequencer/sound module) with all-new interactive design
  • Easy operation using touch-sensitive D-Field with three distinct modes
  • SOUND makes playing patterns and sound effects easy by touching the D-Field
  • XY provides simultaneous control over two parameters (e.g. filter cutoff + resonance)
  • SPIN creates turntable-style effects by tracing the pad in a circular motion
  • 600 Preset patches and 30 Preset drum kits with waveforms equivalent to the MC-505

  • 150 patterns including new 2-Step and R&B styles, plus 240 RPS (Realtime Phrase Sequence) patterns
  • Separate Reverb, Delay and MFX sections with Groove-oriented algorithms
  • New Step Recording method using D-Field and 32 LEDs
  • Megamix function creates new patterns using parts from existing patterns

That video on the right "night drive" is a great demo of the potential of this box. I bought mine second hand for 130$ and I don't regret it. Its not a machine drum or an mpc but there is quite a bit that can be done with it. the touchpad makes for more interesting transitions and sequencing of the pattern channels than the mc 505. more performance oriented. some good usable sounds on there to be sure, but in the future I hope to dig into its synthesis engine with midiquest and save some of my own patches. if you are able to send midi from a computer piano roll you've got all you need with this thing to hook up some patches for throwing down a live set
