All-In-One Convenience

roland cd2i digital recorder

Everything you need to record, edit, and burn is right there inside the CD-2i. No extra devices or cables to connect. No need to connect it to a computer either. Just turn it on and go. With high-performance stereo speakers, stereo microphone, and CD drive built in, the CD-2i is ready for action right out of the box.

Take it Anywhere

Portability is a key advantage of the CD-2i. Weighing in at less than 1.1 kg (2 lbs 6 oz), it’s lighter than most laptop computers. It’s also slim and trim, at less than 50 mm (2 inches) thick. You can use the CD-2i anywhere since it can run off six AA batteries; for those who prefer to plug in, an AC adaptor is supplied. *To enable recording to and playback from CD-R/RW media, use of the supplied AC adaptor is required.

Ideal for Music Study
