FP User's review - Roland RD-150

There are enough features to begin learning how to produce music and gain fundermentals in theory of composition, shame you can load samples onto it like the MC-505 and shame about the sequencer

Price paid

£150 (£300ish?)


Definatly the worst thing about this product. At first beginers glance it looks like its got loads of buttons, but as you learn to use it you realise that there isnt enough, theres far to many buttons that have about 5 different functions that you have to use in different combinations, hard to remember them all which makes using it time consuming (using the manuall every 2 minutes). The sequencer is very limeted therefore I now only use this as a sound module with Cubase which it dose very well


I belive the sounds are of good quality, some say there awfull, but it's how you use them, a bit of effects, EQing and Compresion (as with anything) and there great. the effects are a bit dogy but OK. Better to use plug-ins and external sequencer


Fair play, It built like a tank, its six years old and all the buttons have been hammerd so many times from just using it and realtime jammin (early days) but there all still working fine, and the jog wheel, must have been turned millions of times

Great to learn fundumentals, shame about utterly crap sequencer, good fun in realtime and superb as a sound module
