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 also be heard in countless film scores from the era. With the Roland D-05, you get the iconic sound and dedicated control of the D-50 in a modern device that recreates the legendary synth down to its finest details.
