Featuring two powerful sound engines, impeccable action, and advanced controller functionality, the Roland RD-2000 gives you unparalleled performance onstage and in the studio. Roland is on the cutting edge of evolving digital piano technology, and they've packed their latest stage piano with the best of it. Benefiting from the latest V-Piano research, the RD-2000's acoustic piano sounds are stunning — natural, responsive, and lavishly detailed, and with full-keyboard polyphony. A separate SuperNATURAL sound engine serves up over 1100 additional sounds that cover any style of music, plus an epic selection of legendary electric pianos and vintage effects. The onboard 24-bit/192kHz USB audio/MIDI interface makes it easy to interface with your DAW and VIs. At once a world-class stage piano and a masterful controller, the Roland RD-2000 will take your performances to new heights.

Gorgeous V-Piano acoustics

Roland has long been on the cutting edge of digital piano research, and they've poured their engineering know-how into their newest stage piano. The RD-2000 features not one, but two state-of-the-art sound engines. The acoustic piano sounds are based on the company's flagship V-Piano modeling technology, and they're absolutely splendid. Keyboardists here at Music Experience are blown away by the dedicated acoustic engine's full-keyboard polyphony, for performance without compromise. Included are newly developed re-creations of two Roland innovations from the 1980s: the RD-1000 (the first RD stage piano), and the MKS-20 sound module.

Historic electric pianos and more

Roland spec'd the RD-2000 with a second SuperNATURAL-based sound engine that makes use of proprietary SA technology to deliver over 1100 additional sounds covering virtually any style of music, plus a broad selection of classic electric pianos from the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. These EPs are so authentic-sounding, they are instantly recognizable from the hit records that immortalized them. Also on tap are vintage effects that include the BOSS CE-1 Chorus and Roland SDD-320 Dimension D.

Connect with your DAW and virtual instruments

As a master controller keyboard, the RD-2000 is a godsend for the performing keyboardist. Equipped with extensive features that make it ideal for commanding a large-scale live setup, the RD-2000 lets you seamlessly integrate its internal sounds with software-based instruments, hardware modules, and more. Simply put: the RD-2000 is a professional mission control center for the most advanced stage shows. The RD-2000's USB audio/MIDI interface makes it simple to integrate your virtual instruments and DAW in the studio, or a laptop running your favorite host software onstage. Use zones to control soft synths along with internal sounds, and route everything through the RD-2000 to create a powerful hybrid rig. The interface accommodates 24-bit audio at rates up to 192kHz, letting you preserve the fidelity of your highest quality sounds.

Designed for commanding performances

Navigating the RD-2000 in live performances couldn't be easier. Equipped with eight dynamic encoder knobs and nine faders, the RD-2000 gives you comprehensive control over your sounds, FX, and more. The knobs have LED indicators for precise adjustment and instant visual feedback, and they're velocity-sensitive, so you can execute precise adjustments with slow scrolling and quickly move through parameters with fast movements. The RD-2000's eight assignable zones let you map sounds to different key ranges, or create combo patches with up to eight layers. And with the handy Scene function, you can save 100 snapshots of your entire keyboard setup, and recall them with a press of a button. The RD-2000 is not only outfitted with Roland's classic pitch/mod lever — it also has two independently assignable wheel controllers for detailed sound tweaking while performing.

An arsenal of sounds for every genre

It is a given that Roland's latest cutting-edge stage piano will offer world-class acoustic and electric pianos, but the soundset on tap in the RD-200 is more akin to what you'd expect of a serious workstation, with more than 1100 non-piano sounds that let you cover any musical genre with just one keyboard. Roland's SuperNATURAL technology delivers deeply expressive Virtual Tone Wheel organs, vintage and modern synthesizers, clavinets, strings, brass, and much more. And there are more sounds being added all the time on Roland's Axial website; killer patches you can load into your RD-2000's two wave expansion slots. These include sounds from previous RD keyboards — and if you're upgrading from the RD-800, you'll be happy to know that all your Live Sets are 100% compatible with the RD-2000.

What Roland Says...

Equipped with two independent sound engines, premium action, and advanced controller features, the Roland RD-2000 delivers unmatched performance on stage and in the studio.

Historic Electric Pianos

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 (the very first RD stage piano) 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. Visit our special RD history page for more background on these and other classic instruments and effects, plus sound demos of the recreations found in the RD-2000.

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.

Zones and Scenes

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.

Bender and Wheels

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.

Zones and Scenes

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.

Flexible Audio Outputs

With its versatile outputs, the RD-2000 is ready to connect with any stage or studio setup. Main stereo outs are provided on XLR and ¼-inch jacks, and there’s also a sub output that allows you to route internal sounds and USB audio independently.

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.

Light and Durable

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.

Extensive Foot Control

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. The optional RPU-3 provides a real grand piano pedaling experience, combining three pedals into one compact unit.

Matching Stand

For solid support on stage or in the studio, the optional KS-G8 stand is a perfect match for the RD-2000. It features an open design for a sleek look, plus durable steel piping and rigid bracing to ensure maximum stability. The KS-G8 folds for easy transport, and its height can be adjusted for sitting or standing positions.
