The "Digital Native Dance" is the finest preset ever made and the sole reason why I own a Roland D-50.

If you want excellent pads/strings this machine is a *must*. Programming can be a hassle (use the pg-1000 or software eds) but when done correct is well worth it. Takes some patience but once you learn how to program you can make all sorts of transforming tones-most thanks to the strangely behaving digital filters. Warning about the output, the preamps on the D-50 are very weak and annoyingly noisy. You'll have to use a parametric eq or noise removal to take it out because it is an extreme nuisance (at least to someone as picky as myself). Find one for under $400 and you'd be a fool not to get one, I lucked out and got mine for $300.

this mashine was the first wondermashine on the market, it had the most astonishing sounds by that time.every dx went pale.nowadays its to cheap so you have to buy it. a big con is the easyly malfunctioning keyboard(dust under the keys)even a pcmupdate was possible .without the speedsystem it is to slow in response.

I couldn't agree more. The D-50 still rules. Even though you have wonderful softsynths now ! (Try Sim Synth !) But still... The D50 keeps combining that digital sound with the analog sound. And that makes it unique. I you're searching for an editor for the D50, look here: www.d50ve.w3.to The D-50 Virtual Editor tries to make programming the D-50 a bit easier, since you don't have to deal with that small screen, plus, you can still keep the feel of the D-50 when you're programming, because it has the same interface.

For those of you with Sounddiver, I put up a collection of my patches: http://tilt.largo.fl.us/d-50.zip

This helps you get out of D-50 preset hell if you need to. :) (Although this bank contains several of what I feel are the most useful D-50 presets and card patches...)
