Very good, warm sounding synth. Not realistic, very own sound, not very fat or punchy like an analogue or dx synth. The keyboard is not very good, and Roland should really abolish the stupid pitchbend/modulation wheel. Seuqencer and drive are handy for backing up patches. Nice resonator effects, and nice for toying around, making your own sounds. A bit noisy. I love the warmpad sound!

I live the D-20 synth only because it has the multi timbrel A15 &quot;Electric Piano 1&quot; sound. I midi it with my Korg O1W to create some nice CRISP piano sounds.

Long live the D-20!

I am getting frustrated with my old friend. I got my D-20 when I was 13, in 1989. I am finding it hard to get the sounds I really want - whether it is a really good piano sounds, or cool analog techno sound. My sequencer often loops poorly with a little gap as it repeats. The drum sounds are very dated. But somehow, it serves me well. I need to work with the sounds more, practice fiddling around more. Having said all, I think it is a great overall package, and has played an important part in the development of my song writing.

my first synth, my bobba fett baby makes killer ring modulated loops and

some tight pounding percussion. just blast the levels in the filters. lay down your customized variations

on warm pad for the ambient string texture. layer your 4 favorite bass textures

drop em a couple octaves and tweek to your hearts content. i know programming on a 2X16 led sucks

the big one but its worth the effort. the right texture always layers well with other brands circuitry.

I just picked up my D-20 this weekend! Sounds aren't nearly as sweet as on my JV-30, but, hey, I only paid $100. Obviously I'm just getting used to the toy. A couple of questions if anyone can or cares to respond: How can I take advantage of the 2 boards? Can I access my JV-30 sounds through my D-20 so I can sequence on the D-20 while drawing from my JV-30? Can I load JV-30 sounds onto the D-20? Also, where does one find sound cards? The piano settings are awfully tinny. Finally, is there an advantage to saving on memory card vs. disk?
