Demo song using only the Roland D50

Post by kebu » Sun Apr 10, 2011 12:42 pm

I took some time to learn a bit more about programming my Roland D50, so I made a short tune using only the D50 and its built in effects:



The song was programmed/performed and recorded using Cubase SL. Most of the patches used are my own programs or variations on presets. Each instrument was recorded individually by multitracking. No plugins were used except for mild EQ on some tracks and a single-band limiter on the master track. The reverbs, delays and choruses heard are all D50's own effects. The video was later compiled showing how the various parts were played.

This is probably the warmest sounding digital synth I've ever encountered!

Long live the D-50!

Back in 2008 I too made a track with only the D-50, except for drums. It still unfinished and lacking in both drum variation and melody. I am planning to remake it as soon as my D is back from repair.

Something I made way back, it's a single program - no sequencers were used when making it.
