"Ketron manufacturer description:
The Ketron SD4 is a pocket sized sound module designed for all PC and MIDI applications. The module is equipped with a new, powerful sound engine including a Professional Grand Piano sample (across 88 notes), huge orchestral and beautiful voices such as Saxophones, Brass, Woodwinds, Guitars, accordions, organ digital drawbars and many others. The quality of sound is what we have come to expect of Ketron (Best Natural Sound) making it ideal for use in Studio and Professional applications.
Ketron SD4 was released in 2008. It is a music module that will provide an easy workflow, and will welcome the user into a new sound space. The front part of the device is divided into several sections: at the top there are panel presets, just below there’s the 3-digit led display and 2 groups of buttons for monitoring.

The first section is a digital panel for selecting patches, and the second section with buttons is intended for configuring presets and menus navigation.

In a multi-timbral mode, SD4 works with GM-banks (128 patches) which sound quite realistic. There are 4 bank instruments and 32 drums. The first 3 GM-banks offer different voices. A separate 4th bank is derived from GM. Several buttons on the control panel are used to program the presets.

Panel voices can contain up to 3 layers, where each layer represents one sound from the GM bank. In some samples the performance is composed in a similar manner. In addition, two effect processors can be used to make the sound complete: reverb, chorus, distortion, delay and Leslie effect."
