Keep milking Roland! I'm not buying any of the boutiques because of the format.
SH-101's aren't rare; you see them pop up every week on second hand sites.


I had a D550+PG1000 for a while.
Never figured out why this synth was so legendary...
I mean, yeah, back in the day when they made it, it was quite original,
combining (sampled) attack parts with other sampled sounds.
But nowadays, I see no reason whatsoever to buy a D50 or an improved/updated version.
So good luck to Roland if they want to sell a new version of this.
The D50 was like the number 3 most sold synth ever, if I remember correctly,
so it's dead easy to still find an original one for a fair price. :)

I had a D-50. It's a huge pain in the ass to program using the menus, so I'd imagine a boutique version would have tactile controls.

It's just a rumor guys; we will see if it get released someday. I do get the point of the pain in the ass programming.
That synth is from the era when synth manufacturers did take a step back on the knobs and sliders and introduced a new style of synths (with lot's of menu diving).
D50's are indeed easy to find but so are the SH-101's as well. The issue with the SH-101's is that the prices are high, but if you really want one it is still affordable.
It's not like the Jupiter8 prices today: about 6 to 8000 euro (yes it's a different beast but I tell this for the price tag).
I don't find the format of the original SH-101 is a problem but nowadays people seem to have the tendency to go camping with these battery powered mini backpack sized synths.

yeah, but even if they somehow incorporate easy programming...
nowadays that synth is just a totally outdated concept/idea.
There must be about 500 better options out there than a D50. :)

Depends on what you want to do with it, right? For techno I don't think it's very useful at all. But a lot of people use D-50s or D-50 samples in the late 80s side of synthwave/retrowave. And it's another nostalgia bank that's bound to be loaded up in pop music as well. So it will sell. Maybe not as well as some of the other modules, but well enough to justify putting the D-50 VST they've done in a box.
