Ketron SD2

gorgo, 11.06.2018
I am using the ketron sd2 as a midi sound module, I had the ketron sd1 keyboard but this was too heavy,I tried to find a second hand SD2 to no avail, now that i have received my order i can see why. excellent sounds and so versatile. For me it is ideal, as i can take out the drum sounds plus a few other sounds and add guitar on to it. more than pleased with this unit. for me no cons as it does what i expected and at a fair price. I have bought a midi arranger software and downloaded the SD1 sound styles so i have best of both worlds.

Ketron SD 2 - for me the MIDI standard

DORA Music, 04.04.2012
More and more companies are still producing sound modules, as most users buy an entire keyboard for live games, and have a lot of software samples in the studio anyway. This is actually a pity.

The Ketron SD2 is a very good sounding module. Although the technique comes from the year 2006, this device is (for me) still a standard with regard to playing Midi-Files.

The 3x 128 = 384 sounds sound far more "modern" than the Ketron XD9 (or XD3 Arranger) released in 2002. The reverb sounds also much better and also speaks more (ie the same midi-file gets much more reverberation from the SD2 than the XD9). A changeover from the XD9 or XD3 and the like to an SD2 would therefore mean reprogramming: less reverb; Guitars louder; Drums louder ...

I am very satisfied with the price; Less but with the features. When I remember how much you could read from a Roland SoundCanvas SC 88 at the time ... here you can not read anything, only the blue switch-on light moves when a midi file is playing. If you want to change sounds, you have to take a look at the tables (manual p. 37-41), or simply (by chance), by simply stepping through (from the PC, of ??course, because you can only switch ON / OFF and adjust the volume ).

Particularly pleasing: I have once played a very well-programmed midifile from the field of classical music: "Funiculi Funicula". I would say, for laymen it is hardly distinguishable whether there really played an orchestra or "only" a Ketron SD2 at the work was. That's why there are 5 stars for the sound.

Instead of the chinch outputs, I would have liked good line outputs - but the company Ketron has concentrated 100% on the sounds, and everything else omitted, so that the price is not an obstacle to buy this device.

Conclusion: Although this device has no features; But excellent sounds.
