Historic Synthesizer: Roland D-50 (8)

 

D-50 Structure (3)

 

Roland D-50 adopted the PCM method, which is excellent in realistic reproduction of real musical instruments compared to the previous generation synthesizers. The PCM method, which was also adopted in the Roland drum machine TR-808, is to generate real musical instrument sounds stored in a memory by modulating pulse-wave values. The D-50 has 100 PCM sound sources, and through the combination of these PCM and partials, you can create a lot of new sounds you have never heard before. With PCM sound, you can't use a variety of variables as with partials. When humans recognize sound, they recognize the initial part and the sustaining part of the sound, and the part that determines the identity of the sound is the initial part of the sound. Therefore, when using D-50, if the initial part of the sound is made with PCM and the sustaining part of the sound is made through digital oscillators, then you can make a great sound.
