Connections:
2 RCA
Midi in - midi out
No MIDI Through

Sounds available
600 in the pRSET (not at all bad at what roland)
possibility to assign an effect (about 15 DIFFERENT effects: distortion, equa, delay, reverb ....)
possibility to assign an LFO, a filter ...
250 factory patterns (not really top, it's kitsch)

Squenceur
a song mode (which I use not personal)
a mode pattern 8 tracks available online, possible to mix multiple live pattern
You can send and receive midi file, which is not a luxury because the registration of marks is not practical.

UTILIZATION

It fairly easy to use but the menu is not accessible to the AIS (menu, submenus ...), especially since the screen is really the minimum.
Despite the surface CONTRL sensitive to touch (really nice to live), I recommend acquiring a master keyboard with knobs compltement has changed the deal: access to direct effects, the Filters ...
The manual is in French trs complete and clear enough.

I put 6 is a little rough indeed, but with a keyboard note up 8

SOUNDS

As far as sound is the quality to go roland
appearance in style cheap orange plastic, the D2 contains sounds of good quality
What surprises most non-users also.
Section trs electro battery, enough to satisfy fans of hip hop electro drum'n'bass
About 600 of its existing patch I shall mention that half which is not bad dj
Regarding the effects, there is what is needed but the quality leaves DSIR as often when there Intgr effects of a Roland synth.

I put 8 because there are much better even when synth

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for three years, the report price is unbeatable quality, the look can leave skeptical at first, but what comes out vriament is not bad. The ergonomics are not strength but the use of a keyboard with matre knob makes it fun to use trs. It really is a product made for live.

My final grade will be 9, because for that price, the quality of sound is to go.
If you want to buy a groove box you tickle Do not hesitate.
