OUTLINE OF THE 0-10
[g) OUTLINE OF THE D -1 0
The Roland D-10 is a multi timbral, linear synthesizer with a
built-in rhythm machine. designed for both keyboardists and
multi-track recording. The following will explain the features and the
modes of the D-10.
1. Features of the D -1 0
e LA Sound Source
The D-lO's LA sound source allows warm analog type sounds as well
as sharp attack digital-type sounds.
e Performance Mode and Multi Timbral Mode
eTone
e Patch and Timbre
eReverb
Rhythm Tone
The Performance mode may be selected for playing the D-10 using
its own keyboard, and the Multi Timbral mode is suitable for ensemble .
performance using a MIDI sequencer.
The D-lO's internal memory stores 128 different preset Tones. 64
programmable Tones and 63 preset Rhythm Tones.
A sound consists of a Tone or a pair of Tones and performance
controlling functions. In the Performance Mode, two Tones are
assigned to a sound (""Patch), and in the Multi Timbral Mode. only
one Tone is assigned to a sound (=Timbre).
The digital reverberation section of the D-10 can create reverb
effects. In the Performance mode, a different reverb effect can be set
for each Patch.
When using the D-1 0 as a rhythm machine, you can use Tones you
have programmed as well as the 63 Preset Rhythm Tones (altogether
85 tones).
Also. it is possible to set the Pan and Level parameters for each
Rhythm Tone, and therefore obtain the desired volume balance in the
stereo outputs.

OUTLINE OF THE D-10
e Rhythm Machine and Metronome
e Memory Card
The built-in rhythm machine stores 32 different preset rhythm
patterns and another 32 user programmable patterns. You can make
a song (or tune) in a rhythm track by using those rhythm patterns.
The metronome can be used not only for practicing the keyboard but
for making a rhythm pattern or rhythm track.
Using an optional memory card (M-256D, M-256), your original
sound data and rhythm data can be saved for future use.'

10
There are two different Play modes, Performance and Multi Timbral
modes, and each mode allows you to select the Patch or Timbre you
prefer.
The Performance mode may be selected for playing the D-10 using
its own keyboard. You can play the keyboard to the rhythm played
in the Rhythm section.
In the Multi Timbral mode, the D-10 works as a rhythm machine and
8 independent synthesizers. You can play an ensemble style
performance using a MIDI sequencer.
This mode turns the D-10 into a rhythm machine. You can select
a rhythm pattern or play the keyboard using the Rhythm Tones.
This mode allows you to edit various parameters. Normally, the edited
version does not rewdte the previous data unles!l the appropriate
writing procedure is taken.
The Recording mode allows you to record performance data into a
rhythm track.
The Write mode allows you to write an edited version into the internal
memory of the D-10 or onto a memory card.
[Data Transfer Mode]
[ROM Play Mode]
OUTLINE OF THE D-10
The Data Transfer mode allows you to copy the entire data written
in the D-IO's internal memory onto a memory card or into the
internal memory of another D- 10, and also copy the data on the
memory card or in the D-10 into another D-10.
In this mode. you can play any of the B songs which are
preprogrammed in the D-10 to demonstrate the effects of the Multi
Timbral function.

---- . -- -----------------------
OUTLINE OF THE D-10
3. Partial and Maximum Voices
12
The D-10 can produce a maximum of 32 voices using 32 Partials at
the same time. A Partial is the smallest unit of sound within the
D-10. A Tone consists of one to four Partials. A Tone made of only
one Partial can be played 32 voice polyphonically, but a Tone of two
Partials has 16 voices, and a Tone of four Partials is 8 voice
polyphonic. It is very important that you fully understand this
concept. Specially in the Multi Tirnbral mode. this can be very tricky
as several Tones are involved at the same time.

data at all, sa h c::annat be used unless an appropriate Saving procedure
(sea page 127 in the Advanced Course.) is taken for copying the entire
data in the internal mamory onto the memory card. This also applies
to a memorv card that contains data other than the O-lo's.
To use a Patch on a memory card, insert the memory card into the
Card Slot in the correct direction.
Using the Internal/Card Button, select CARD.
