About This D-20

This D-20 is being sold just as it came into us. It powers up, the screen is bright and clear and all of the keys except the one marked with blue tape seem to play normally. We pushed several buttons that seemed to work but we haven't tested them all and the condition of the floppy drive is unknown. We are selling this as a fixer upper and a really great price but there will be no returns allowed on this item.


The D-20 makes a great budget or alternativeD-50. It's more closely related to theD-10 and D-110synthesizers but adds an 8-voice sequencer with a rhythm track. The D-20 is a digital synth that employs linear arithmetic synthesis (LAS). It's a confusing synthesis / editing method composed of tones, partials and timbres. Basically it all boils down to tricky programming which, if you know what your doing, can have interesting and unique results. Reverb effects and internal / external memory storage are also available on the D-20. Definitely worth a listen.
