Nope, there isn't even a commerical one.

The closest thing to what you want would be a Roland V-Synth with a D50 expansion card.

Or if you wanted to save a whole lot of money a VariOS with the D50 card.

There are some presets in nostalgia vst, its a rompler tho, but a cool one worth checking out not only for the D-50 sounds included.

That synth is such a massive undertaking to reproduce in software, I doubt it'll ever be done.
But what the hell, Korg did a remake of the M1, which uses similar principles in sound creation, but that's Korg. I don't think roland cares about software instruments enough to do something like that.

They are directly recorded from the original source, no emulation here... so its limited of course. Also, I didn't like too much the D50 patches selection... but the rest of nostalgia is really good.

The Korg M1 replica also includes tons of the cards available for the thing. Quite amazing, I love it.

Yeah I know... but it doesn't contain like the whole ROM of samples or all of the factory presets right? Just samples of some patches that studio bam made, yes? That really sucks, those used to be free... :?

Nostalgia is probably a good vst, specially because it contains classic patches that you recognize its sounds instantly For example, Emulator II shakuhachi, waterphone, etc; the CS80 brass that Vangelis used in Chariots of Fire theme, which is impossible to recreate in the Arturia's CS80 (unless someone sends me the patch with the proof). Others I liked are the odyssey basses, the lindrum beatbox where the tongas sounds exactly but exactly as Miami vice tongas. (I have the samples of the lindrum but its not as good as these included in nostalgia), etc etc etc

well, if you like it good for you
I can't see why one would pay for free-quality samples that used to be free :?

There's much more... like minimoogs, arps, etc. Haven't found a sample of the CS 80 brass I mentioned or many other... probably the other samples that are free are just there don't know, just to fill the thing a little bit...
