Initial tour of the Roland D-110 Sound Module, how do we create sounds? The basics.
Part One Below:
The D-110, therefore, may be considered to be structured as shown below.

Patches in a sound module.
4. Partials and the maximum Voices
The D-110 sound module can produce a maximum of 32 voices usjng 32 Partials at the same time.
- A Partial is the smallest unit of a sound within the D-110.
- A Tone consists one to four Partials for each voice.
A Tone made of only one Partial can be played using 32 voices
A Tone using two Partials has 16 voices, and a Tone using four
Partials is 8 voice polyphonic.
It is very important that you have a full understanding of this concept.
This can be very tricky as several Tones can be involved at the same time.
