At Knobcon 2017, we talked with product specialist Peter Brown about the new Roland D-05 synth module.
The Boutique D-05 Linear Synthesizer is a Boutique version of the classic Roland D-50 from the late 1980s. The D-05 recreates the digital circuitry of the original using what they call Digital Circuit Behavior (DCB), digitally modeling the circuits and using the actual samples of the original.
If you want to judge how closely the new synth matches the original, check out the Roland D-05 vs Roland D-50 comparison video.
Pricing and Availability:
The Roland D-05 is available to pre-order now, with a street price of US $350. See the Roland sitefor more details.
