I purchased the Roland D-50 in 1989 just 2 yrs after it was released but still in it's early stage when 80's synth was still big. This has been my one and only Synthesizer now for almost 13 yrs now, and I love it. I've gigged on the road with it.and in the studio. The preset patches give you plenty to work with. This synth is excellent for strings and synth pads...and any sound in the world. The one piano preset is Terrible!!! The few electric piano sounds are workable if Midied with another synth. For piano I Midi the Kurzweil Micro Piano to the D-50 for a beautiful real time piano sound. If you're looking for piano then don't invest in the D-50. Unless you want to Midi Piano to it. If it's beautiful orchestra movie theme sounds, or warm pop synth and strings you're looking for, the Roland D-50 is Tops! Over all, for a straight out Synthesizer The Roland D-50 is a monsterous Machine and very program friendly.

Poseo un sintetizador Roland d-50 pienso que es muy bueno, pero lamentablemente los contactos de las teclas se me han dañado casi 15 y estoy tratando de comprarlos pero no se donde ni cuanto cuestan. incluso me comentaron que existen una tarjetas de expansión que fueron creadas nuevas y que traen nuevos sonidos. por favor si alguien me puede enviar información. gracias. Dios los bendiga

The D-50 will always be the best when it comes to keyboard synth. I got mine along with the PG-1000 programmer for $900. Expensive for an old synth, but worth every penny. I also have the D-550 rack module of the D-50 for $300. I mostly use it for studio recording, and some live gigs. I rate this synth +5 'cause w/o it there would not be "Haitian Kompa", "Se li'k gin son la ri ya", translation "this synth has the sound of the streets".

The D-50 was my first synth and it seems that i will not ever part from it. The user interface i crappy as hell, but once you penetrate the surface of programming, vonderful things will happen. Get the PG-1000 programming unit to ease things up a little. It's a good sizer for low costs, so get one.

This board can create some beautiful, heart-melting sounds. It is a bit difficult to program sounds from scratch however. I used to have a DX7 and it was nice knowing that you had the capability of producing an almost infinite number of sounds using sine waves. I sold it because the D50 sounds much warmer and less digital than the Yamaha. The strings and synthesizer pads are top notch. The keyboard action feels wonderful too! The piano sounds are terrible when compared to my Yamaha W-7. This is a great keyboard for New Age and Dark Wave music. I hope to hang on to it for a few more years.
