But even that synth can not do what D50 - D-550 can. You can mimic bells in Vectron etc but forget it regarding emulation. IMO you should buy that synth. They goes pretty cheap now. D-550 is rack mounted same synth, you can find a lot of nice VST editors, banks, patches etc. and you have real deal with good sound.

There was a Reaktor ensemble made by William K (author of Wusikstation) under the name Dash Synhtesis, that emulates D50 pretty well. But it's not available anymore I'm afraid, and I had to rework it completely to make it compatible with current version.

But I have to ask myself, why there is no real D50-Clone? You can have tons of VA-Synths, analog ones or fm-machines.
Maybe in future...

If you do ask yourself .. and get a decent answer, can you let me know? I wanna do early Duran Duran too.
Actually, the D-50 was released in 1987. The early Duran Duran albums were released as follows:
Duran Duran - 1981
Rio - 1982
Seven and the Ragged Tiger - 1983
Notorious - 1986
A friend of mine has a D-50, and I've been bugging him to sample the raw waves from it, with the eventual goal of building an emulation in Reaktor. Shouldn't be too difficult, effects section not withstanding.

The classic bells, jams, spectrum sounds are boring these days but forget the PCM structure and use it as a real warm spaciuos synth. It's really fat and warm... At the moment I have no vst being able to replicate it's full warm tone. Take a listen to Spacious Sweep preset... it's pure heaven.
Totally agree with the above.
My d50 also have the Mexx expansion. Gives more osc/per patch and huge sound.
Still some patches using these early PCM still sound great. And I try to program kinda D50 "arco stringz" patches very often when I put my hands on a new synth. Pizzis had some character too.
Not even Roland did succeed to offer these kind of strings in their following synths.
Oh and to answer the post in a less elliptic way than EW did (though ha was perfectly- right) : You wont find any D50 Vsti because its half PCM (read sample in rom) synthesis, and Roland owns the rights on the samples the d50 uses and wont allow any other company to use them.
Hope this helps

Of course, the waves in the D-50 that are the really recognisable ones are the samples - and I think they were actually done by Spectrasonics - or at least Eric had a hand in them. I know that Spectrasonics owns and licenses some of the content to Roland (eg the V-Drums content)
