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 2.1.1 for Windows - Installer

Main new features of this version:

  • The update check mechanism works again on Windows 7, Windows 8 and older (i.e. pre-TLS 1.3) Windows 10.
  • The application has become more user-friendly concerning data errors in ".stp" and ".mru" configuration files: On startup, when the application encounters a data error in a configuration file, the application now mentions the exact name of the offending file, and no longer refuses to start. Hence it is no longer necessary to delete corrupt configuration files manually. On exit, the application reports any errors while saving configuration files.

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