Any users about? Drexciya was said to have used this. Are they really good sounding but hard to program?
Luap
Yes they can sound excellent. But sure, they are a massive chore to program, in my opinion.
I never tried to use mine with a programmer (hardware or software), but it has to make the thing much more useable..
CoreInside
What software are ppl using with this thing?
synthpriest
You remind me of how I never managed to purchase the PG-10 programmer for this. Yes it can sound good, the filter reminds me of the s-550 filter from the same era. Digital with an analogue soul. Miley Cyrus

In the late 1980s, the D-110 was what you bought if you couldn't afford a D-50; it had a a greatly inferior sound albeit multitimbral. Now that good secondhand D-50s are around £300 (and the D-05 is an excellent alternative if you haven't got room for the real thing), I can't see why anyone would bother with a D-110. Unless your budget is just fifty quid or so...

It has its own cheesy charm, I think - it's more or less a keyboard version of the MT-32, with on-board programming. Except I think there's some differences in the sample ROM that prevent it from being directly MT-32 compatible, so you can't just hook it up to SCUMMVM and away you go... confused

Except it's 1U rackmount smile. You're thinking of the D10/20.

So true. Same with the TX81z & DX7.

Ah, so I am. Though the guts are essentially identical.

Love the d110. Miley Cyrus

I like the sound of the d110 when you programme some interesting patches on it. The main thing that annoys me is the file structure: you have to save each sound, timbre, patch separately- it's really confusing and I just want everything to save and be in that one patch in one go.

I' sure the d50 is better, it has a few more features like lfo to pwm, but the general sound you can get is in the same ball park. My D110 was £40 so can't complain!

Here is something I made just with the D110:



And here D110 and friends:
