It has connectors Midi In / Out / Thru, two stereo outputs (one for each voice), a headphone jack as well as sustain pedal and expression.

UTILIZATION

Manuel found on the net, easy to use, but against for editing is a different story! LA is a study in itself, there are fortunately some tutorials on the net, but I'm always looking for a good book that I have to say will help me.
Once the principle of LA + - + even if you want to ease editing your sounds, you can still find PG1000 (midi controller D50 and D550) but sold at prices ridiculously high, so point D50 owners finally ended up turning to PC-based editing programs, which is not to the advantage of those who offer for sale and thought PG1000 hold "the" treasure of the century! !
(I've seen some ads PG1000-old + 1 year, and the price tends to go down a little in some)! personal if I wanted to "really" a PG1000, maybe I will put 150 view € 200 but not more! Thank you for computing down to earth a few feet olibrius!
FYI, the Peavey PC1600 also control noon D50 honorably.

SOUNDS

Well that sounds old, keep a certain charm to the nostalgic ("Fantasia", "Soundtrack", "Pizzagogo" or "Digital Native Dance", employees and re-re-re-employed by the artists of the time) However I think the D50 could have some fun young people who want to discover LA
Hargh yes the keyboard is a bit tired after decades (for the velocity of 0-100 but it will, but you can go from 100 to 127 deal with the club or jumping foot attached above)! against by the synth sounds great and expresses its potential when it is driven from a good master keyboard. I use it for a Cakewalk A800 Pro which has been modified (slightly weighted) and it is more sensitive to the aftertouch, and there is a real treat!

OVERALL OPINION

I've had + - 1 year, I always dreamed to have one.
some of its sounds are classic, others are a little squeaker, but when we go to edit is automatically another world!

between 200 and 300 € this is still a reasonable price, but no more.

I had a JD800 that has cast me (nothing like you tell me ..), but I much prefer the D50 it a inimitable grain and retains a certain charm despite age are! On the other hand it is a synth that has influenced a generation and who will delight nostalgic old teens! Some on an old classic car in their garage, me it is a D50 in my room, I, j'le guard j'le not sell lol!

5 octave keyboard for a enjoyable, which makes a nice master MIDI keyboard. The joystick does not fail at Roland call, there is a small look of Darth Vader and buttons that cliqutent, panting, waiting for your programming. The D50 is a classic, one of those keyboards you love or Mythic dtest, but everyone heard adj. The effects are zero, on the other hand ... The polyphony is 16 voices, synthse called LA (Linear Arithmetic As). There are 64 sounds in RAM, plus the same thing on a map slide in bte.

UTILIZATION

Pretty crappy program, I must admit! The LCD is a bit small, menus and submenus often sotriques: there must be time ... And instructions to beginners.

SOUNDS

Cold prcises,...…

UTILIZATION

Pretty crappy program, I must admit! The LCD is a bit small, menus and submenus often sotriques: there must be time ... And instructions to beginners.

SOUNDS

Cold prcises, shiny, sometimes arrhythmic, we still hear everywhere, Fantasia, Digital Native Dance, Tubular Pads ... Sounds basic, trs enjoyable, classic. The D50 is not a good reader sample is a real synthtiseur, with real waveforms (Saw PCM + / Sqr). The attacks are PCM result in Saw / Sqr, you can synchronize, filter, passed through a ADSR.

OVERALL OPINION

One day I got tired of my old D50, and I sold it. I am not crooked philosophy LA, but I agree that those who say that this is wonderful synthtiseur must be right ...
