Roland's first digital delay, the Roland SDE-2000 was a big hit when it arrived, guitarists took to it like a duck to water, as too did home recording studios.

It may have had limited bandwidth with the relatively low sampling rate of 26kHz, but that did not stop the success Roland enjoyed with the SDE-2000, but it did kill off the Space Echo, for a while at least.
The Roland SDE-2000 Digital Delay offers complete flexibility over all the delay parameters including Flanging, Chorus and Echo etc.
What are contained within the device are controls for Modulation (enabling sweep in the Flanger and Chorus modes) and Feedback which generates the signal for more intensity in the Flanger and Chorus modes, and provides multiple decaying echoes in long delay setting.
The Roland SDE-2000 Digital Delay offers a large capacity memory (12bit/16kbyte RAM) to provide low-noise and high fidelity sound through full band width.
Delay time can be controlled by 1ms and it is displayed in the digital display. The Roland SDE-2000 Digital Delay features a single mono input with full stereo output via 1/4 inch connectors.
