D-50 Linear Synthesizer

One of the world’s most recognized synthesizers, now for your DAW.

Released thirty years ago in 1987, the Roland D-50 Linear Arithmetic (LA) Synthesizer is easily one of the most influential keyboards ever made. The D-50 helped to define the sound of the late 80’s with its instantly recognizable mix of sampled attacks and synthesized sustaining waveforms (that’s LA!) plus 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, plus countless film scores.

* Although Roland has tested numerous configurations and has determined that on average, a computer system similar to that described above will permit normal operation of the software synthesizer version of the D-50 Linear Synthesizer, Roland cannot guarantee that a given computer can be used satisfactorily with the D-50 Linear synthesizer based solely on the fact that it meets the above requirements.  This is because there are too many other variables that may influence the processing environment, including differences in motherboard design and the particular combination of other devices involved.

Vintage Digital

When most people think of vintage synthesizers, they think of analog beasts with lots of knobs and sliders. The 80’s ushered in something new: sleek keyboards with digital engines that brought musicians and producers a totally new palette of sounds not previously possible with analog.

As Roland’s first all-digital performance synthesizer keyboard, the D-50 took the world by storm with its unique mix of sampled attack transients and synthesized waveforms combined with built-in digital effects and… a joystick!

Name a famous track from the late 80s to early 90s and there’s a good chance it was built around one or more Roland D-50 sounds. Unabashedly digital, the D-50 has taken its rightful place in the hallowed halls of classic vintage synthesizers. Its sound is unique and beautiful, and it brings a certain “something” to your tracks that you just can’t get anywhere else.
