Free preview of my new D-50/550 sound bank!

PREVIEW BANK

Hi guys! Here's a free preview of my upcoming commercial D-50/550 sound bank. I've worked on and off to program these sounds now during 2010 and it's just a few patches. They also exist as samples in my Reason refill Fairlight CMI Legacy MKII / Supersonic.

The goal is to build a bank of sounds making the D-50 just as fun and inspiring as when it was new. I especially enjoy I-22 and I-24 myself, truly playable sounds.

The patches are not a 100% ready either, some env settings needs to be mastered and fixed but you get the picture.

Use SysEx Librarian or similar programs to send the file to your D-50/550 or V-Synth VC version.

Patch names

I-11 Mighty CS80 Sphere
I-12 Jukno I can do 106
I-13 Sausse Ana Saisse
I-14 Eurythmic Trails
I-15 Boards Of Borealis
I-16 Soundtrack Variety
I-17 Pythagorous Fifthy
I-18 Chasing Fairlights
I-21 Reason Aint It All
I-22 Yamaha DX7II Funk
I-23 Yamaha SY77 Keys
I-24 Yamaha TX812 Funk
I-31 Lighty CS80 Sphere

I eagerly await your comments!

Isn't it amazing that people are still programming sounds on this machine? Roland must have done something right when they made this baby

Could you perhaps maybe make an MP3 demo showing those sounds off?

Don Solaris ; I borrowed your D-50 pic for my post on my webpage, hope it's ok! Has anyone tried these patches out?

A few really great sounds in there.
I'm not really interested in the uber 80's type sounds, or the keyboard emulations (clavinet, ep or synth brass).
I'd buy it it in a heartbeat with more soft pads and ethereal sounds.
For me a new soundbank should bring the D50 into the 2000's, not revive the 80's.
Sorry just being honest from a potential customer's perspective.

Digging the demos too, makes me wanna hook up the ol' D550 again here. Mainly interested in pads as well thumbsup

here's the thread... :-)

Thanks a lot for the feedback! :-) Must continue working then. Did you like any patch in particular? Try the Chase Play on some of the later sounds of mine in the bank, quite interesting arpeggio-like fx are possible. Kudos!

Edit: I know of ONE user who actually transferred the bank to his D50. Anyone else than PeWe who has tried it?! ;-) It is in the first post here, all the way up in this thread.

A bit dodgy to nick another user's pic for your own commercial venture.

Why couldn't you just have photographed your own D-50? Or, as you are in the commercial system, pay for a stock photo?

Sure, no prob, as long as you provide a text below it: Image courtesy of ....

The way it's normally being done in the rest of the world.
