Since I have a Sonic Cell I read the Roland forums and the talk about the SD-50 is it sounds pretty close to the SC and some say it's the same as the SC, that means the sounds are much more modern and some are taken from the Fantom series. Please understand however this is just what I've read, I've never heard the SD-50.

Biab/RB latest build, Win 10 64 bit, Intel 4770, 256 Gig SSD, 16 Gigs Ram, Roland Sonic Cell, Kurzweil PC3, Hammond SK1, Korg PA1XPro, Garritan JABB, Hypercanvas, Sampletank 3, more.

Bob, when you say the same as the SC, are you referring to the SC-88 referred to in the previous posts in this thread?

I *think* jazzmammal may be using the 'SC' for Sonic Cell in his post, not the older SC-** series synths. A lot of the older original SC-** series synths were actually using 12 to 16 bit samples (yeah I know, those numbers look weird but they are what they are). Most S-series samplers and earlier Roland synths were 12 bit samples. They were 12/32kHz (as opposed to todays common 16/44 or 24/48 samples) Around the release of the RAP-10 soundcard (Win-95 era) was when Roland started sampling 16 bit, using the newer processors.

Sonic Cell and Fantoms use mainly 16 to 24 bit samples. So there is a different sound from the original synths. I don't know if some of the older samples were just converted from 12 to 16, but suspect that if so it was not very many of them.

Makes a difference going to the better bitrates, doesn't it? I have a Juno-G that I like a lot. Probably using a lot of the same samples.
