A synth as only as good as what you make of it. I made very great things with this one, I loved especially some "Pseudo-Bagpipe sounds" that I created, as well as "Fantasia" or "Tubular". D50 is a real synthetiser, not a "Rompler".

Now the D50 is a bit outdated, but if you find one for cheap, do not hesitate: it is still a good synth for pads and leads, and in a band one does not always need very modern keyboards. Just do not use the internal reverb which are awful.

This is the only synth were I can make my own unique sounds that I like. Ive made every sound that I want from this synth. It can do any analog or digital synth I can think of. Great ARP odyssey sounds to name a few!.

This keyboard is the first i've played and i think it's almost wonderful.The only lackness i think it's piano sound(not the electric ones)but the D50 is a synthesizer and it shines in this way.Great pads,warm strings.It reachs the top in the digital sounds(You can play Pink Floyd's Run like Hell solo with a machine that costs half of the half of the half of Kurtzweil)!).The organ are good too,just add a distorsion and you can get a sound quite close to hammond.Some sounds are unique and other more expensive synth aren't able to sing like d-50.The keys are ones of the best i've ever touch.I broke my D-50 one night gigging and i've had to replace it with another suddenly.Its sound is unique!Enough hard to me to program but there's a lot of material avaiable on the net.The manual it's terrificant.I own also a Korg m1 and think that with the multi effects(D-50 has only chorus and reverb) and some decent piano sample it would be better.

I got myself a D50 a couple of years ago, and even now, I am still under the spell of that wonderful synthetizer. Just the rich sounds quality, the way to can access all parameters and can create your own sounds, its look.....just a must have. specially now as it is not as expensive as it once was. Much better than it's babies D10 and D20, it is Roland as its best.

By the way, has anyone any idea how to get the sounds cards???? they are absolutely unavailable in the UK .I also tried in Paris and Zurich,but cold turkey.

May be I am an old fashion Kraut, as you would say in the US, but I love the sounds, the warmth and the look of this King. It is an old keyboard that for me as not lost any of its brillance and each time I turn it on, I am ready for something magic. Much easier than a DX7 and ever so Gemütlich to use (untranslatable in English)

An old fav of fime.
