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.

D-5 Manager 2.1.0 for Windows - Installer

New features of this version:

  • The manual is no longer a stub but fully featured.
  • The installer allows you to deselect non-essential files: the manual and the skin definitions.
  • The application runs slightly faster due to the disabling of some debugging safeguards.
  • Skins: 39 alternative user interfaces, mainly color schemes.
  • Full support for Windows 10's "Per Monitor v2" DPI awareness protocol: at high DPI settings all text characters look razor-sharp instead of blurry, and the resolution of each window automatically adapts to the monitor on which it is (mainly) being shown.
  • Some layout and scaling problems have been fixed.
  • A bug in the 64-bit executable that could cause malfunctions (e.g. access violations) has been fixed.
  • A few minor changes to the user interface.

See section 2 of the manual for the full list of changes.
