D-5

D-5

The Roland D-5 was an LA (Linear Arithmetic) synthesizer. It appeared on the market in 1989. It was derived from the D-50, and was closely related to the D-10, D-20 and D-110.

ROM cards:
In the heyday of the Roland LA synthesizers, many companies published ROM cards for these synthesizers.
For copyright reasons the D-5 Manager package does not contain any ROM card data. However, if you are interested in the data from Roland's PN-D10-01/02/03 cards or the 'Analog' and 'New Age' cards in the (third-party) 'Studio Series', or if you possess any other cards, please send a message to the Mountain Utilities contact address.

D-5 Manager:
D-5 Manager is a powerful editor for the D-5.
Reportedly it also works reasonably well with the closely related D-10, D-20 and D-110.

Main new features of this version:

  • The D-5 Manager update mechanism allows you to specify in which update types you are interested: alpha (development) versions, (‘public’) beta versions, release candidates and release versions.
  • You can open raw D-10/20/5 ROM card data files.
  • The tone envelope graphs have a background grid.
  • You can save and reload window layouts.

Note that the included manual is still a stub. The release version 2.0.0 will include a "real" manual.
