One of the world’s most recognized synthesisers, now for your DAWOver 30 years since its original unveiling in 1987, Roland’s D-50 Linear Arithmetic (LA) Synthesiser is hands down one of the most influential keyboards the world has ever seen. The D-50 is responsible for defining the sounds of the late 1980s thanks to its instantly recognisable mix of sampled attacks and synthesises sustaining waveforms, plus chorus, reverb and EQ. This forms the basis of so many classic tracks across a broad range of genres including Synth Pop, New Wave, New Jack and R&B, alongside innumerable film scores.
With the new Roland D-50 DCB Software Synthesiser, Roland Cloud subscribers can have the iconic sound of LA in a powerful plugin, which perfectly recreates this legendary synth down to the subtlest of nuances!

Roland’s first all-digital performance synthesiser keyboardWhen most people think of vintage synthesisers, they think of analogue 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 analogue.
As Roland’s first all-digital performance synthesiser 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 synthesisers. Its sound is unique and beautiful, and it brings a certain “something” to your tracks that you just can’t get anywhere else.
SynthesisSo, what exactly made this synth so attention-grabbing? The Roland D-50 used an innovative mixture of short, sampled “attack transient” waveforms blended with digitally-synthesized sustaining sounds. This technique, which Roland dubbed “LA Synthesis” offered the realism of expensive (at that time) digital samplers, the expressiveness of a synth, and the polish of a high-end studio thanks to onboard digital effects – it's no wonder the D-50 became one of the best-selling professional keyboards in history!
New Wave. New Jack.
New Age. And so on…The 80s were a dynamic period for pop music. Producers were trying new things, looking for new sounds, and new genres were being forged at a furious pace. From 1987 on, the Roland D-50 was massively influential and appeared in studios and on stages around the world. Some of the most influential recording artists in history have used the beautifully crafted presets, unaltered, as the cornerstone of huge international hits. There’s just something about the quality of its sound that grabs you.
