The Roland SDE-1000 Digital Delay is a high quality digital delay machine with various attractive features including a chorus effect.

The Roland SDE-1000 Digital Delay uses a 12bit system with a less than CD-quality sampling rate, which yields a lower frequency response than CD and is part of the reason for the sonic signature of the delayed signal. The SDE-1000 features:
