USB MIDI Sound Module and Synthesizer

SD-80: USB MIDI Sound Module and Synthesizer


The SD-80 is a High performance MIDI sound generator with powerful synthesizer engine and high quality waveforms in one slim body.

The SD-80 is equally at home on your desktop or in your rack. We started with a footprint that accommodates either application, added tons of connection options like USB, Coax S/P DIF, Optical S/P DIF and 1/4" phone jacks, then made sure the sounds were just right–all 1050 of them. For flexibility, you can even run specific MIDI channels through assignable audio outputs for outboard effects processing to make the sound all your own.
