The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Details
The Roland D-05 Linear Synthesizer is an innovative analog synth, basing its design on the classical Roland D-50 from 1987. The Roland D-05 synth utilises Digital Circuit Behaviour (DCB) to ensure the original sound is faithfully recreated with immense detail. The original D-50 helped to shape the sound of the late 80s, combining a mix of sampled attack and sustaining waveforms to achieve a truly unique sound and musical aesthetic. The vintage-style design of the Roland D-05 Linear Synth, includes a versatile joystick control for navigating presets, as well as selected sounds and accessing different modes. The D-05 synthesizer also boasts a 64-step, polyphonic onboard sequencer and arpeggiator. It comes complete with all the presets from the original, accompanied by a selection of new sounds to bring it into the modern day. The compact design even features a built-in mini-speaker for ultimate portability, and it can be operated using 4 x AA batteries. #

Faithful Recreation Of The Roland D-50

The Roland D-05 Linear Synthesizer utilises the Digital Circuit Behaviour (DCB) technology to capture the original’s sound and essence in immense detail. The technology allows the sound and design to get as close the original sound as possible while retaining the warmth and grit associated with classic synthesizer. The original D-50 Synthesizer was a staple in the music world during the late 1980s, helping to define the sound of RnB and other genres within that era. The combination of DCB technology and the same samples used in the original, results in a faithful recreation of a once classic synthesizer. The original tone and sounds have been painstakingly recreated using the DCB technology as well as pairing the exact same PCM attack and loop samples, that were paramount to the D-50’s sound.

Built-In Effects

As well as incorporating the same samples and sounds from the original, the D-05 also incorporates the same integrated FX to enhance your tonal characteristics. This faithful recreation includes the same built-in chorus, reverb/delay and EQ effects, providing a studio-grade polish to your sounds, allowing you to add your own nuances to the way your sounds react. The on-board digital effects can be used for everything from adding subtle reverbs to percussive sounds for a more atmospheric tone; to removing problematic frequencies from a sound using the built-in EQ.

Polyphonic Sequencer & Arpeggiator

One of the most prominent new additions to the design is the integrated 64-step polyphonic onboard sequencer and arpeggiator. The addition of the step-sequencer makes the D-05 ideal for rhythms and patterns on the fly, making it perfect for live performances. One of the most unique features of the sequencer it its ability to store tempo and patch changes, as well as giving you the ability to sequence shuffle and gate timing. The arpeggiator is ideal for adding a sense of movement to your patches, allowing you to bring out a new layer from a sound for added versatility.

Design & Construction

The highly compact design of the D-05 makes it ideal for musicians on the move, allowing you to create sounds and sequences on the fly. The Roland D-05 boasts a rugged enclosure that can withstand the rigors of extensive use. The intuitive interface features joystick control for navigating between parameters, as well as controlling different modes and settings. Its highly portable design also runs on either batteries or via USB power, eliminating the need for an external power source. Additionally, the synthesizer features an integrated, powered mini-speaker, meaning you don’t need an external audio source to play your synth while on the move.
