Released in 1987, the Roland D-50 Linear Synthesizer is easily one of the most influential keyboards ever made. This revolutionary instrument helped define the sound of the late ‘80s with its instantly recognizable mix of sampled attacks and synthesized sustaining waveforms, plus built-in chorus, reverb, and EQ. It’s the basis of classic tracks in a wide range of genres including synth pop, new wave, new jack, and R&B, and can be heard in countless film scores of the era. With the Roland D-05, you get the iconic sound and dedicated control of the D-50 in a modern device that perfectly recreates the legendary synth down to its finest details.
I recently bought myself an iRig MIDi adaptor to plug my D-05 into my iPad Pro running iPG-800 to use my iPad Pro as a D-50 editor and it works great.rockout
I just wrapped up a full bank of patches for the D05 and D50 :-) Really lovely synth. http://youtu.be/wYFYaUGawEs
I believe the SE-02 was marketed as part of the Boutique line, it just didn't use ACB. It is silly that the VA boutiques were restricted to 4 voice though. Eh, considering how many controls Roland was able to pack into the JP-08, SE-02, and so forth, I don't think that's necessarily true. You could easily...
