The D2 Groovebox is the first compact groove music workstation to benefit from Roland's D-Field Controller technology. This touch-sensitive pad makes it easy to program and modify patterns, sounds, effects and more simply by touching the surface. There's also 150 all-new patterns including the latest 2-Step and R&B styles.
Performance-oriented Groovebox (sequencer/sound module) with all-new interactive design
Easy operation using touch-sensitive D-Field with three distinct modes
SOUND makes playing patterns and sound effects easy by touching the D-Field
XY provides simultaneous control over two parameters (e.g. filter cutoff + resonance)
SPIN creates turntable-style effects by tracing the pad in a circular motion
600 Preset patches and 30 Preset drum kits with waveforms equivalent to the MC-505
150 patterns including new 2-Step and R&B styles, plus 240 RPS (Realtime Phrase Sequence) patterns
Separate Reverb, Delay and MFX sections with Groove-oriented algorithms
New Step Recording method using D-Field and 32 LEDs
Megamix function creates new patterns using parts from existing patterns
...this maybe 10 years ago? Here I'm using three Rolands from those years: Groovebox MC 505, groovesampler SP808, Groovebox D2 and a Korg Electribe ER1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbJudoe4I9M
