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. 🙂
      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 😉
    (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 🙂

  5. Hi – I just recently got a D-110 and found this page during research. It’s very informative – Thanks for posting it!

    Are the patches still available? I can access the page with the sysex links but there’s no download link nor any link I can right-click and “download link as…” I’ve download DropBox links loads of times before and I know that sometimes you have to search to get the download link, but I couldnt find it anywhere.

  6. Anyone still interested on ? Got my d110 and ready to tock? Is there any appreciation group? did not find one ,suggestions?

  7. why did you sell it!!!! 🙂 just according to your experience is it possible to make a supersaw/square using the D110?

  8. I have a D-20 which is the same thing as the D-10/D-110 and patches are interchangeable between them. For over a decade, the thing was almost a paperweight to me because of the indecipherable user interface. That is, until I found Steinberg Synthworks for the Atari ST.

    Because they’re basically the same synth engine, it works with the D-10, D-110, and D-20, and the interface is so simple I actually like it more than some modern synth editors that I’ve used. The best part is that you can load it using the ST emulator Stella on a modern PC and use it to edit patches via a MIDI connection. It is by far the best method I’ve found to edit my D-20 and WAY better than MidiQuest which I’ve never had great luck with.

    These synths are capable of some very interesting sounds when the programming is unlocked through the ease of a nice, visual patch editor. I find it a little ironic that 30-year old software running on an emulator works infinitely better than much newer software that is still being sold for good money. And it’s easy enough to find with a simple Google search.

    • I misspoke, the name of the Atari ST emulator is Steem. Stella is the name of a 2600 emulator and I have a habit of confusing the two.

      • ah ok – i never had much luck with atari emulators on osx, especially trying to get midi out.
        I even tried os9 /classic approach but still didnt talk with midi

        • Steem on PC sends midi. managed to run Cubase 2 on it. was a bit cranky but works.

          D-20 is not exactly the same as D-10/110: there’s one less stage in the envelope. also has Performance mode, which is Upper/Lower combination.
