Roland D-110 Patches

d110

The Roland D-110 is another one of those patch warrior type synths.

Ideally suited to computer based patch editing this synth is capable of some great sounds , but patch editors for this are few and far between these days.

This is my collection of patches for the Roland D-110 for download.

You can grab them all and patch your D-110 and enjoy some fresh sounds.

    1. do you check these comments? would love to talk about the d110 a bit. anything I need to know about installing these? know of any decent PC GUI editors? Thanks!

      • I do check the comments. πŸ™‚
        I used to use MOTU UNISYN to load patches but now I use Sysex Editor. I’m afraid I dont know what the PC equivalent of these programs are.
        There maybe some old GUI editors for the D110 – but to my knowledge they would be Atari applications.
        I tried to run an Atari emulator to talk to the D110 but I had no luck getting it to work.

      • A good editor for the D110 is Sound Quests Midi Quest. I use it for editing all my synths. My setup consists of a Roland HP2700 piano, Casio CZ 101 and VZ1, Yamaha YS200 and TG55, Ensoniq ESQ1, Kawai K1 and the D110. Occasionally I throw my old TX7 in. Midi Quest supports all the above synths quite happily.
        Not a particuarly cheap editor, but it supports just about any synth out there, including my (unfortunately non functional) SEIL EX80

        • I’ve not had much luck with Sound quest on the Mac.
          I’ll give it another try, though , thanks for the recommendation.

    2. a bit of a classic! suited to any electronic genre if you’re prepared to
      put the time in. there are two free editors for win32, and…oh d*mn,
      link not working: ginosoft, and wmv, look here for more info:
      http://www.synthzone.com/roland.htm

      actually can sound better as pure dirty synth than 1080 a lot of the
      time (ow, gonna get kickd for that!!)

    3. They look like interesting machines. I”m trying to get a bit more of an understanding of what is capable with them. Listening to a Legowelt interview was my introduction to the d110 (he spoke of it being a cheaper alternative to the other more popular digital synths of the 90s). Seems to be currently one of the overlooked digital synths.

      • Yes its hard to get your head around and the patch editing tools available now leave a lot to be desired.
        Some of the old tools are meant to be good. Need an old machine laying around just to edit patches.

    4. fresh off the press, here’s D-110 Tone Edit for Novation Remote πŸ˜‰
      (test draft beta1, needs a few corrections, i’m on it)

      https://app.box.com/s/cr3qgoy05795dip4poc8eaa4uganc3m9

      the zip contains 11 templates which all link up, and have to be
      loaded into memory slots 1-11 on the Remote (ZeroSL mk1 here)
      -there are a coupla issues here and there, value defaults or display
      messed up by simple errors.
      -stay away from the mute buttons for now, they will mainly just
      switch all partials off, not working as intended yet.
      other than that, maybe i’d change the layout a bit having used
      it, and patch edit and rhythm setup are on the way.

      only had a quick go with it so far but quite promising πŸ™‚
