We say :
Roland's D-05 is part of their Boutique range of synthesizers. It recreates the iconic D-50 linear synth which some of us will remember from the 1980s. It has a great range of sounds and even a built-in speaker so you can enjoy hearing them on the go! It is battery powered or you can use a micro-USB cable (supplied). Don't forget to order a K-25M keyboard if you want to play your D-05 and you don't have another MIDI keyboard to hand.
Roland say :
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.
