Roland D-110
This is just the rack synth edition. There is no keyboard attached, you have to get a midi controller to use this device. There are several audio 1/4" outs, and Midi in/out/thru. Yes, you can edit this via a computer by using a program called "MidiQuest XL." Its a great program that makes using older gear like this one so much easier. As for controllers, it is all midi and has the general midi controls (pitch, modulation, sustain....) you will just need a midi controller that is capable of generating those midi messages. There are quite a few sounds on this unit especially because I own three expansion cards for it as well. They are wide ranging in style but they all have that unmistakable late 80's early 90's character. Yes they can be edited as well as stacked up to 8 separate sounds to create one big sounding patch. It has 32 voice polyphony.


Without the use of MidiQuest XL, no, the sounds and effects editing is not easy, at least not by today's standards. The configuration appears to be simple at first glance but navigating through patches and editing just about anything on here can be a real pain in the but. It took me over an hour to feel comfortable with the small task of changing the patch, seriously. I have recently got the manual and have been doing my best to read/understand it, but Roland is notorious for writing awful manuals (in my opinion, the worst was Roland VS1880) so its not going as well as I would have hoped.


Realistic? Heck no. But that's not the point. I bought this unit because I wanted some older sounds from that era. I love to run old synths like there through some of my really nice effects (moog stuff, diamond, analog man). The combination has always yielded some amazing results. The touch sensitivity and after touch seem to be close enough if not right on to today's standards. No conversion that I am aware of. The effects are good. They compliment the sounds in the keyboard good enough, but I find myself rarely using them as I prefer the analog effect route. As for sounds, all the piano patches are pretty lame, they certainly get used if I need a cheesy piano sound, but they are so far away from anything useful if you want a real piano sound. Other than that, I love all the weird, cheesy, "crappy" sounds that come out of this thing.


What I love most about this unit is the sounds. If you need a tone from the late 80's early 90's, then look no further (actually, if you can find one, definitely get the bigger brother of this unit the D 50). With the three expansion cards, I have so many great sounds to choose from. What I don't like about this unit is the learning curve. This thing is a real pain to get comfortable with and the manual isn't as good of a help as it should be. Be willing to spend a whole day with this unit before you expect to make great sounds with it (maybe even more time than that). I paid $75 for this unit. I am very happy with that price. If you expect this thing to sound "real" than it would get a 4 out of 10. If you want this thing with the understanding that it is in no way "real" than I give it a 9 out of 10 for sound and quality. I have owned a few digital synths and this one has the most character of them all. Yes, I would definitely pick this up again if I had the chance.

A very good tool for understanding the aliasing and problems related to excessive transposition too short and sampled samples with too low resolution ..... for the rest, it can still make a nice carrier racks, possibly a big ashtray or a clipboard.

Warning: this review is only my opinion, and is a reflection of my personal or professional experience that I want objective, but is necessarily subjective. I am not forcing anyone to share it, to take it for granted. So for the brave who think invested I do not know what mission on condition of anonymity to their email, it is useless to send me messages of insults because you do not share my view: your Email systematically end his life in the trash, no other alternative. In a sense, you can consider that it is a return to sender;)

A MIDI expander unit.
THE synthesis
32 voice polyphony.
9 votes for multi-timbralité.
128 sounds ROM / RAM 64
8 audio outputs + headphones
This is the version of D-10/D-20 rack.


Well here it gets complicated ... Partial Structure of grouped to form a sonority that will be selected in a stamp placed himself on a share and saved in a patch! o0 '
Moreover, the lack of alpha dial is acute, the 16 buttons are not enough to comfortably edit the module.


By programming we can get to "good sound" typical LA synthesis. It blows a little but it is manageable. The reverb and delay are more embedded.
The acoustic sounds are to be avoided except for doing porn!
The thing is known to modulate the PWM via the velocity example and ring modulation is the main tool for the synthesis LA ...
The filter can resonate without going into self-oscillation.


Expander for some nice little sound of drum or synth.
Has the same color as the series D-5/D-10/D-20 ... For the nostalgic ;)
Anyway right now it's cheap and it can used to fill an empty rack elegantly!

is very complete for those who want to take the lead in a program, a real little gas plant


it's not fun to work with a small area, it at all concentr.mais ca not take place


then my friends, go buy a running, this thing sounds! it is a massacre, dynamics and color of sound, a marvel, the ultimate synthesis, you have a d50 and a d110 and you are at the top of the color of the grain is inimitable, listen to the demos of the internal beast and you will understand that with the talent it makes things sound beautiful in appearance not genial.j 've acquired several of no mistake, the d110 is not worse than the d50. it's his little brother with his own bass caractere.les are great, they drool not a mix.les acoustic sounds are not very realistic but that's what I love, the aproximation a lot of charm.
