Roland D-110 – Editing Parameters

Roland D-110 – Editing Parameters


[Basic Procedure for Editing Parameters]

  • The D-110 has several modes and a great many parameters, offering sound synthesis and various effects using the Multi Timbrat function.
  • To edit a parameter. you should turn the unit to the appropriate mode for the each parameter.

The following diagram shows how the relevant buttons work in each mode.

•1: When a writing or copying is completed or EXIT is pressed.
•2: When the Rhythm Part is selected.

* If you cannot remember which mode you are 1n, push EXIT until the unit returns to the Play mode.
Depending on which mode is currently selected,

PART ([icon name=”chevron-up” prefix=”fas”] [icon name=”chevron-down” prefix=”fas”] ),

PARAMETER/GROUP [icon name=”chevron-up” prefix=”fas”] [icon name=”chevron-down” prefix=”fas”]),

PARAMETER/BANK ( [icon name=”chevron-up” prefix=”fas”] [icon name=”chevron-down” prefix=”fas”])

VALUE/NUMBER ([icon name=”chevron-up” prefix=”fas”] [icon name=”chevron-down” prefix=”fas”]) buttons will all function differently.

2. Memory [Data which can be written in the internal memory or on a memory card]

There are several different types of data. such as Patch. Timber, Tone, etc. Each data unit consists of different things. The D·110’s internal memory and a memory card (M•256D or M-1280) can store
the following data.

[What each unit consist of?]

  • Tone
  • Timbre

A Tone consists of Common and Partial blocks.
A Timbre consists of Timbre Parameters;

  • Tone Select.
  • Key Shift
  • Fine Tune,
  • Bender Range,
  • Assign Mode
  • Output Assign.

In other words, a Timbre is made of Tones and performance controlling functions. A Timbre, however, does not contain
a Tone itself.

Tones which can b e assigned to a Timbre are as follows:

Preset Tones(a, b, or r group} can be assigned to the Timbres either the Internal or on a Memory Card, while Programmable Tones are assigned to the Timbres in the corresponding memory.

A Programmable Tone in the Internal memory assigned to
the Timbre in the Internal memory and that in a memory card to the Timbre in a memory card.

While you are writing a Timbre onto a memory card, if a Tone in the Internal memory(‘i’ group} is assigned to that Timbre, it will be automatically changed to a
Tone in the Internal memory(‘c’ group).

A patch consists of Patch Parameters

A Patch involves the contents of the Timbre assigned to each Part, but not number assignment. Therefore, if a different Timbre is selected with the Timbre Select parameter or Program Change messages, the data itself will be copied from the Timbre.



The Patch Writing procedure can write the Timbre you have edited in
a Patch, but not into a Timbre memory. To write it into a Timbre memory, you
must take the Timbre Writing procedure.
