    I have not been able to find out how many voices this thing has, if it has 8 (or more) that would be great, if it has 4, not so great.

    Given that it's just running digital software and computing power has moved a long way since the 80s, I daresay it'll (should) do hundreds of voices.

    I think I remember the vid saying it was 4 voice, but u could chain them together for (ie) 8+ voices.

    Roland probably brainstormed how to make the most amount of money for the least effort before developing the boutiqe series

    Well, if you like it

    The D50 has 16 "voices" (32 "oscillators"), no matter whether it's:
    - Hardware D50
    - Hardware D550
    - Hard/Software VC1
    - D50 Cloud Plugin
    - D50 Boutique

    So, 16 voices in 1 layer mode (two oscillators), 8 voices in 2 layer mode (four oscillators).
