Roland | D-5
|The D-5 is equipped with sound modules employing LA (Linear Arithmetic) synthesis, Widely acclaimed since ' adoption with the D-50 and D-10. Whether it be the fatter sounds normally associated with analog synthesizers, or , the sharp attacks unique to digital synthesis, you now have a great deal of expressive freedom over a wide range of sound creation possibilities.
The D-5 has two main modes , Performance Mode and Multi Timbral Mode. The Performance mode is for using the D-5 as a keyboard instrument, while the Multi Timbral mode allows you to enjoy ensemble performances when connected with an external MIDI sequencer.
The Multi Timbral mode turns the D-5 into eight independent synthesizer modules plus a rhythm sound module. The D-5 can play up to 32 voices at the same time, which can be used in any setup you like respective to each module.
A Tone is the basic unit of a sound. The D-5’s memory stores 128 different Preset Tones, 64 user—programmed Tones, and 63 Preset Rhythm Tones. Also, optional memory cards (M-256D, M-256E) can be used for saving original sound libraries for ongoing use.
As well as the 63 preset rhythm tones supplied in internal memory, 22 more original rhythm tones you program can be used for the Rhythm section. Each rhythm tone can have different Pan and Level settings as desired, so output at any desired stereo balance is possible.
The Performance mode of the D-5 allows you to use the Chord Play, Harmony, Chase and Arpeggio functions which create interesting performance effects. These can be set individually in each Patch, resulting in the optimum effect for each sound.
