ROLAND D-550 w/ Roland D-50 Rescue Kit CD & Memory Card

via this auction

"The Roland D550 is an all-time favorite vintage piece straight from the 80's - iconic sounds that appeared on countless hit albums and are still fresh today. Crisp bells, dreamy pads, chunky basses, punchy horns...this little unit was one of the secret weapons of 80's music, and can add just as much to modern analog-driven tracks. With subtractive-synthesis and filters, it can contribute richness, shimmer, and presence to a mix that digital units struggle to match! This D550 is in great shape, with some scratches on the cover but a beautiful face. It's been in my smoke-free rack for more than 20 years, well-loved and taken care of. The display is no longer backlit, as is true for most of these units, but the sounds are as rich as ever. The original manual, power cable, and PN-D50-00 memory card are included, along with a D-50 Rescue Kit CD I picked up along the way with the factory presets and other patches and documentation."
