Portable, high-quality SD/CD recorder for recording, polishing, playback, and music practice.

The Roland CD-2i battery-powered recorder makes recording and CD production more convenient than ever. Just point, record, play, and burn—everything is self-contained, with no computer or external gear required. And the Roland CD-21 recorder is super simple to use! The recorder's clear LCD screen, backlit buttons, and Easy Guide feature make using the Roland CD-2i effortless.

Roland builds a high-quality stereo microphone into the CD-2i for easy "point and capture" recording. XLR, 1/4", and RCA inputs are included for those who wish to incorporate other mics and devices. Loaded with features for recording, polishing, playback, music practice, and more, the do-everything Roland CD-2i recorder is a must-have for anyone who needs high-quality, portable CD production.

Do-Everything Production
Everything you need to record, edit, play, and burn is onboard the Roland CD-2i. No computers, extra devices, or cables are needed. Just turn the recorder on and go. With high-performance stereo speakers, stereo microphone, and CD drive built in, the Roland CD-2i is a self-contained pro audio production station that's power-packed yet easy to use.

The Roland CD-2i is slim, trim, and travel friendly. Powered by six AA batteries, the CD-2i can record directly to SD cards – compact, durable media that's roadworthy. When used with AC power, the CD-2i records directly to industry-standard CDs and as well SD cards.

Enhanced I/O
Even though the Roland CD-2i recorder is designed as a do-it-all device, it provides a variety of inputs and outputs to interface with other gear if desired. Connect an external microphone to its XLR input (complete with phantom power), connect an instrument to the 1/4-inch jack or a line-level audio device such as a record player to the stereo RCA inputs with phono equalizer. Stereo line outputs (RCA phono type) and a headphone output are provided as well.

Music-Practice Partner
Improve your musical skills with the Roland CD-2i's onboard practice features. You can repeat sections of audio for repetitive study. You can change key and tempo; decrease the tempo, for example, without changing pitch to learn tricky sections of songs. The onboard metronome also makes the Roland CD-2i ideal for music teachers and students. Record lessons and performances, and analyze your performances with clean, clear detail.

Easy Guide
Even though the CD-2i is jam-packed with features, it's simple to use. The innovative Easy Guide feature leads you step by step through each operation, with instructions available in six languages (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Japanese). By using the Rehearsal function, the Roland CD-2i battery powered recorder can even automatically adjust the input level to give you the best sound without the hassle of trial and error.

Comments about Roland CD-2i CD/SD Battery Powered Recorder:

It has so many features but the display window is small and there are alot of catagories and sub-catagories...it's going to take some time to get familar with its use. However, it only took moments to arrange a few test recordings and the sound was amazing.
