Roland D-05 Boutique Product Overview by GAK

The D-05 is the next synth in line to get the reissue treatment from Roland. Originally released back in 1987, the D-50 was used throughout R&B, pop and new Jack swing in the 80's and 90's. With this reissue, Roland aim to recreated the magic of the classic synth alongside a host of impressive new features.

The Roland D-05 includes joystick control similar to that found on the original and includes all the presets found on the original unit. New features include an arpeggiator and a 64-step polyphonic sequencer not seen on the original unit.

The D-05 can either be powered via USB or four AA batteries. There is also a built-in speaker making it perfect for portable use.

Roland Product Overview

The latest addition to the popular ROLAND Boutique series is a recreation of the their groundbreaking 1987 synthesiser the D-50!

Powered by the revolutionary Linear Arithmetic (LA) Synthesis engine, the instrument’s unique mix of sampled attacks and synthesized sustaining waveforms—plus built-in chorus, reverb/delay, and EQ for studio-quality polish—made it a must-have synth for musicians around the world. The D-50’s bold new sounds and beautifully crafted presets inspired artists everywhere, and quite literally dominated the popular music, film soundtracks, and commercial jingles of the era. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of this giant in the history of synthesis, Roland presents an inspiring recreation that brings the genuine D-50 experience to the music creators of today and beyond.

At the D-05’s core lies the first synthesizer with Roland’s DCB technology. Paired with the exact PCM attack and loop samples that were so vital to the D-50 sound, the D-05 precisely recreates every tonal nuance in stunning detail. The user interface is totally authentic as well, with the familiar D-50 panel layout and many direct-access controls. Even the all-important D-50 joystick is included, allowing users to smoothly morph between different mixes of Upper and Lower Tones in real time.
The D-05 also includes many modern enhancements not available with the original D-50. The 64-step polyphonic sequencer is ideal for performance and music creation, and offers the ability to sequence shuffle and gate timing along with tempo and patch changes. There’s also a built-in arpeggiator for adding movement to the D-05’s already evocative LA Synthesis sounds.

Like all Roland Boutique modules, the D-05 is extremely portable, runs on USB bus power or batteries, and functions as a USB audio/MIDI interface for performing and producing with a computer. It also includes a built-in speaker for monitoring the sound in mobile situations. When mounted in the optional K-25m Keyboard Unit, the D-05 can be used as a compact, all-in-one synth with 25 velocity-sensitive keys.
