OVERVIEW

Industry-standard stage piano with extensive modern control.

The Roland RD-2000 is a dream come true for the performing keyboardist. It features dual sound engines that power Roland's best acoustic and electric pianos ever, plus the finest action they have ever put into a stage piano. There’s a massive selection of top-quality ensemble sounds to cover any musical task, as well as two wave expansion slots for adding even more sounds. And with its innovative modern interface, the RD-2000 is the perfect master controller for working with today’s software-based instruments—taking this industry-standard stage piano series to new levels of inspiration and creativity.

Incredibly Powerful Piano Engine
In a word, the RD-2000’s acoustic piano sounds are magnificent. Incorporating Roland’s latest piano technologies and long-running V-Piano research, the acoustic voice is incredibly natural, responsive, and richly detailed. The dedicated acoustic engine features full-keyboard polyphony, allowing you to realize authentic piano performances without no compromises. Via a second SuperNATURAL-based sound engine, the RD-2000 gives you access to a wide range of classic electric pianos from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s. Included are newly developed recreations of the RD-1000 and MKS-20 sound module from the 1980s. Driven by Roland’s milestone SA technology, their unique musical voices are instantly recognizable from that era’s hit records. Vintage effects are also on hand for processing your EPs, including the famous BOSS CE-1 Chorus and Roland SDD-320 Dimension D.

Superb Playability
The PHA-50 progressive hammer-action keyboard with escapement is the ideal platform for playing the RD-2000’s responsive acoustic and electric pianos. This innovative keyboard features hybrid keys constructed of wood and molded materials, combining classic feel with rugged durability. Together with Roland’s advanced sensor mechanism and hammer-action design, the PHA-50 delivers authentic grand piano touch that’s right at home under your fingers.

Designed for the Stage
With its intuitive interface, navigating the RD-2000 during live performances is a breeze. Eight knobs and nine sliders provide instant control for sounds, effects, and more, and 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. And with the new Scene function, you can save 100 different snapshots of the entire keyboard setup and recall them with a quick button touch while performing.

Performance Powerhouse
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 bring a new level of control to your live performances. LED indicators show the current knob value at a glance, even on the darkest stages. They also respond to velocity, allowing you to execute precise edits with slow movements and quickly move through tones and parameters with fast movements.

Ensemble Sounds for Every Genre
In addition to its world-class pianos, the versatile RD-2000 includes over 1100 additional sounds for covering any style of music with just one keyboard. 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 even more sounds to load into the RD-2000’s two wave expansion slots, including selections from previous RD instruments. And if you’re stepping up from the RD-800, you’ll be pleased to know that all your Live Sets are fully compatible with the RD-2000.

Command and Control
The RD-2000 offers the most extensive controller features of any RD piano to date, making it the perfect solution for commanding a large-scale setup. With the ability to seamlessly integrate internal sounds, software-based instruments, hardware sound modules, and more, the RD-2000 is mission control for the most advanced stage shows. Via the RD-2000’s USB audio/MIDI interface, it’s easy to integrate software instruments with a studio DAW or a laptop running your favorite host software on stage. You can control soft synths with zones along with internal sounds, and route their audio through the RD-2000 to create a powerful hybrid rig. The interface supports 24-bit audio at rates up to 192 kHz, allowing you to access your highest quality sounds. The RD-2000 supports Roland’s newly developed RAINLINK protocol, which provides high-resolution velocity control for compatible software instruments. This ability is particularly effective for deriving the subtlest tonal nuances out of supported software-based pianos.

Built for Professional Performers
Combining the traditional RD-series appearance with elements of the V-Piano, the RD-2000 embodies both tradition and innovation. It’s designed from the ground up with the working pro in mind, with careful consideration of details regarding the interface workflow, sound organization, and physical layout of connectors, switches, knobs, and sliders. While the RD-2000’s feature upgrades are significant, its weight hasn’t changed from the previous RD generation. It’s still easy to transport from gig to gig, and the aluminum body is both handsome and extremely durable. 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.

FEATURES
  • Two independent sound engines and modern controller features
  • Eight fully assignable zones for combining internal sounds and external sources
  • Hybrid wood and molded construction for premium touch and lasting durability
  • Vast piano engine, as well as over 1100 non-piano sounds
  • 24-bit/192 kHz USB audio/MIDI interface

The RD-2000 is a game-changing stage piano. Look no further!

Pros

  • 9 sliders that can be used as B3 drawbars
  • Incredible Piano Action
  • V-Piano Engine
  • Weight (< 50 lbs.)

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Gigging keyboardist
    • Keyboardist who needs full B3 control
    • The ultimate stage piano that has everything

    Comments about Roland RD-2000 Digital Stage Piano:

    Briefly, the RD-2000 stage piano has the incredible V-Piano engine. Although it doesn't have all the available features, having the engine in a stand-alone keyboard for this price versus the actual V-Piano's price is great. Plus, the SuperNatural pianos are awesome as well, so it's got it all.

    The 9 sliders can double as real-time drawbars for controlling the "Tonewheel Organ" sounds, to emulate a B3. I have already used this live, and it works great.

    There's so much to love about this keyboard, but it simply has everything I am looking for. The action is great, and I only need one board plus some foot pedals to do everything I need. This is a game changer.

        Comments about Roland RD-2000 Digital Stage Piano:

        The Roland RD-2000 is fairly easy yo run if you have owned a keyboard before., but like all the other brands out there Yamaha, Kurzweil, Korg, etc, All the keyboard makers need to hire someone to write the manuals in layman terms better. With the RD-2000 I can finally retire my Kurzweil PC 88. I kept it around because it was one of the best controller keyboards around but the sounds were out of date. The RD-2000 gives me the controller and feel I want and most of the sounds I like without having to carry around the rack of tone generators just to get 1 or 2 sounds from each device. You can send the organ sounds out of it's own out jack but I wish Roland would offer an preamp adapter for connection to my Leslie. The ole Leslie preamp adapters are hard to come by now. Not to mention the Piano sound is full polyphony with a second engine of 128 polyphony for all the other sounds. I Love it, But one and enjoy the fun
