Studio Canvas

The SD-80 is a high performance MIDI sound generator with a 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, Coaxial S/PDIF, Optical S/PDIF and 1/4" phone jacks, then made sure the sounds were just right — all 1,050 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.
