Product Description

Point, record, play, and burn -- the CD-2i makes recording and CD production more convenient than ever. Everything is self-contained, with no computer or external gear required. And it's super simple to use! The clear LCD screen, backlit buttons, and Easy Guide feature make using the CD-2i effortless. A high-quality stereo microphone is built into the CD-2i for easy "point and capture" recording, with XLR, 1/4-inch, and RCA inputs included for those who wish to incorporate other mics and devices. Loaded with features for recording, polishing, playback, music practice, and more, this do-everything box is a must-have for anyone who needs high-quality, portable CD production.

Features:

- Simple recording direct to CD-R/RW or SD memory card
- All-in-one portable design; thin, sturdy, and stylish
- High-quality sound via built-in stereo microphone and speakers
- Easy-to-use interface with EASY GUIDE function
- REHEARSAL function to set the best input level for recording automatically
- Key, speed, and center cancel playback functions for lessons
- XLR with phantom power; phono equalizer
- Wireless remote controller
- Battery or AC power (6 AA batteries; AC adaptor included)

Recording and playback via SD memory cards is possible with battery power. For recording and playback via CD-R/RW discs, use the included AC adaptor.

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

Portability
The 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 CD-2i 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 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 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 CD-2i can even automatically adjust the input level to get the best sound without the hassle of trial and error.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Roland CD-2i SD and CD Recorder"
Overall: As a organist, choir conductor and entertainer, I bought the Roland CD Recorder to record the choir rehersals and the training and performance of the jazz trio I play in. The CD Recorder proved to live up to the expectations and is very helpful in the aspect of upgrading the level of performance. The choir can now hear how "good" it sound and what the area are to improve on. I make rehersal CD's for the choir members and it has already helped a great deal! The recorded sound is VERY good! I am glad I bought this recorder. I recommend it warmly. Erich Menig.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
