Got What I Paid For

By GodSurfer

from Sterling, OK

The Roland CD-2e is an excellent all in one package for live recording. I record first to SD card and then burn my best takes straight to CD right there on the unit. The internal stereo mics are more than adequate for recording my Tacoma PM-15 and voice. I purchased an external mic - a Roland CS-15R designed for the CD-2E- but actually prefer the results from the built in mics. Sadly, at this price point, XLR inputs with phantom power are not included. You get two 1/4 inch with only one line level control. The CD-2e is light, portable, and well made. However, looking at it, I'm not sure it would survive a fall from the kitchen table unscathed. For this reason, I also purchased a Roland case designed especially for the unit. This is a powerful little recorder with lots of helpful features--I especially love the built in metronome and tuner. It's also a decent value when compared to more powerful but pricey offerings from Marantz and Fostex. Keep saving if you absolutely MUST have pro level quality, but for half the price--the CD-2d is very close.


A fantastic buy.


from Clermont, Fl.

Roland has done it again. This machine performs like a champ, easy to use and a sound out of this world. I'm 66 yrs old and not electronically inclined so I needed a simple recorder. This baby fills the bill. I play my Gibson songwriter guitar, sing and play a Casio 3100 keyboard rythym section, especially rigged, with my feet, all at the same time. I use the internal mic and pick it up all at once. Just like an old cassete recorder. Very simple. the price is a little high but the quality is worth it. Buy one, you can't go wrong.
