    Roland improves on its very popular CD-2 portable digital recorder by simplifying the controls, swapping the CD drive for a convenient slot loader, and packaging the entire thing in a thinner, more stylish case. The high quality recording and playback are still there, complimented with the addition of changes to the operation of the unit by turning off the burner's motor and recording directly to the system's flash memory until after the performance has completed. This removes any hint of motor noise that might inadvertently be captured on the finished recording.<br /><br />In testing the CD-2e recorded flawlessly. Starting and stopping recordings is very simple, and adjusting settings is fairly easy to do, although the LCD screen could stand to be a bit larger and more descriptive. The only significant downside is the paltry 512MB SD card that is included with the unit. At highest quality this card would fill up in just 13 minutes.
