  1. Nice upgrade! 4096 presets will more than cover the ocean of D-50 patches you can find online. My issue with the Cloud D-50 wasn’t programming; it was the patch management! Once I got it all tagged, I was amazed at what a serious orchestral or VA resource it can be.

    If you have one of these synths in decent shape, its a no-brainer, LookMumNoComputer-style. You might still want/need a software librarian to refine it as I did, but once you fill the Hcard, you’re good to go live for sure. Same with big studio projects.
