Giant step backwards

By musicmanlive

See all my reviews

Roland/Edirol had some great products SC55, SC880, M-GS64 and SC8850. These all sounded great and while some of the interfaces were a little counter-intuitive, general midi was rich and full. Enter the SD20. This module is hard to navigate, and sounds harsh and brittle. Guitars and organs are probably the biggest offenders. In the past I've recorded some awesome tracks on GM modules, but this ain't one of them. Too bad this is the last of Roland SC modules, I would have thought they could have done a lot better. Although not a great GM module, you're better off with a 2020.


Handy and Portable For Laptop

By Farley Crabgrass

from Ontario - Canada

portable - simple to use - doesn't get in the way of composing with a vast range of tones - with this you tend to play and create rather than tweak and try out thousands of tones that don't help with the ultimate goal - which is to write or practice your music
This is a nice sounding sound module that works wonderfully as an idea sketchpad when you are working something out musically away from your studio, or when you use software synth plug-ins and want to work outside that environment.
It sounds fine but doesn't pretend to compete with the $800++ software or hardware synths and you shouldn't expect it to for the $$. This is a good handy product for someone who is songwriting and will go to the studio to record with the big boys when ready.
stable and solid - can take being tossed in your laptop bag or kit and perform when you ask it to
Really handy and you can pick one up for not much coin

This synth is a horrible pos. The sounds are laughable. Doesn't handle pitch bend, stutters. Flimsy build quality!

I own it and use it as my back up only. The SD 80 is much nicer, really quality sounds from the SD80. I'm a musician down In Key West Fl. and use my Edirol SD80, and Cakewalk 9.0, for great sounds and composing, Bobby, The Singing MailMan.
