Sounds ok with factory sounds but as soon you edit to get soft sounds there's a lot of digital noises that makes the sound unusable.. I open it thousand times to clean one or two note whith velocity problems , but as soon as i played it a few times, the problem comes again on other notes..I must open it every week for cleaning since one year...so tired. (if somebody has a solution..) In spite of all these problems.. i love it...:-)

I'm sorry, but this is a weedy synth. Think about it, DX series Yamahas, the D'series competitors, utilise wave generation(operators)i.e. they create raw sound to manipulate. The D50 and it's siblings might sound more impressive at first but they are basically sample+synthesis playback devices, with a few fancy effects. Do you want to mess around with raw sound waves(DX),or mess around with someone else's 1987 idea of what the future of music must sound like. The D50 is a machine with limited scope and possibilities, perfectly capable of instant `wow' factor yet lacking in the true depth. Let's face it, people still buy DX's; Linear Arithmetic? Who cares!

There seems to be no separate section for reviewing the D-550, so I guess I'll have to put it here...

It's a nice module. Great pad/string-type sounds with a surprisingly warm feel and that "buzz" you can only get from early additive synths 8^P...

I am reluctantly selling mine, but only because I've determined that I can get similar sounds and sound quality by layering my MKS-70 and K1m together... the K1m has pretty much the same voice structure as the D-550, minus the filters and a few modulation options (and of course the effects). It covers the additive "buzz" factor while the MKS-70 fills out the bottom end and lushness factors.

If I weren't trying to avoid redundancy in my synth rack while beefing up my effects rack, I would keep the D-550. As I said, it is a nice synth - sounds good and is fairly easy to edit with Sound Diver... no complaints. It still comes highly recommended. In fact, once my current priorities are taken care of, I dare say I'll probably even hunt down another D-550.

Even today I still impressed by my D-50... I've heard alot of synth and there're still some sounds that D-50 capable of produced cannot be matched my others. I still never even use the presets... I programe my own sounds with it and it really show its power. never would even ashame to use this old synth in the stage.... put it above my TRINITY or XP-80 and make other people envy by the amazing leads, stabsand pads the D-50 can produce. Its build very ruged and very Goodlookin'! there're not too many true synth could amazed player/keybordist and becoming classic and the D-50 is definetly one of it... what an awesome synth!
