DS88 Sound List

Postby nicholad » 21:41, 6 January 2018

Probably should have looked here first. Anyway, I created a sound list that matchesmy recently purchased DS88's set. Don't want to admit how many hours this took me, but I needed something I could browse through to find the number of a particular sound, rather than turning the knob one instrument at a time looking for a flute, sound effect, pipe organ, etc. It's arranged by category and contains the number and name of each sound without all the extra confusing crap that the Parameter Guide has. Which, by the way, is not arranged by category and is missing a LOT.
Hopefully someone else can make use of this - it matches my DS88 exactly, but I have no idea how often Roland changes things. Currently in docx format, but I can change it to doc or pdf if anyone would like...

You're welcome joelfan! Yes I did use that, it's the Parameter Guide I referred to. However, the sounds aren't listed in order completely (the group buttons across the DS88 just above the keyboard), and many of the sounds weren't even listed. Many hours work first converting to an editable pdf (access denied on the original), then exporting as Word (docx), then putting it all in order to match the synth, then removing all the extra data I didn't need, then typing by hand all the missing sounds. I still have the original - the complete Parameter Guide saved as docx, if anyone wants it. For me I just wanted a list I could look through to find certain instruments/sounds, rather than turning the knob one sound at a time.
If anyone wants that Parameter Guide in docx, just reply and I'll post it...

Nicholad, isn't it annoying how Roland Japan protects all the PDF manuals? No highlighting, bookmarking, no ease of use... Urgh.

Please do post the docx you made!

Thanks.
