The d110 is loaded with looped waveforms , way more than any of the other d or jv range , they can be pitched down into sub aqua space and are pretty unique , slowly i came to realise whilst a pain in the arse the d110 is really another totally unique palette of sounds and needs to be treated as such , people miss the point with so many ' ****ty ' synths which is that many of them have Character.

Pitch everything down in the d110 super low and it sounds like its underwater

If only roland had made all these romplers with analogue control / encoders etc.

Jd800 style

it's disappointing nobody these days seems to see the D-110 as
anything useful. you can put the pcm waveforms through the
filter, but you have to use one of the ringmod 'algorithms' (if they
can be called that). i'm not getting rid of mine, or the k1r.
spend a fortune to get a sound and it's right there...

oh btw, i got mine with knobs for everything :p

i get the feeling were in an age of ' technicality ' and ' clever complexity ' so a lot of simple stuff is deemed lacking by people who fixate on more and more features , everyone wants more features and complexity as opposed to instruments with a strong simplicity and stronger soul to them.Everyone accept a few of us

hey let's not get carried away D-110 is strictly for
synth masochists who get a kick out of button pushing and
menu diving. actually started to get to grips with panel
operation last time i had a go, managed to set up some
splits for a really crappy piano patch. the really devious
bit is trying to copy partials, i can never remember the
key sequence to get into that. a D-20 is actually much
better to edit, you can edit multiple partials together,
and with the value slider it's much quicker.

Since this thread has been bumped again and I'm currently listening to this...
Aquarian Motion is highly recommended to all electro / Drexciya fans. Worth checking out JRs other projects, also.

Drexicya - The Journey Home.

I’m 17, it’s 1995, been living in Tokyo for almost 6 years, and Drexicya - The Journey Home.

I can’t really explain what it was like, discovering this music, myself and that city.

That had to have been jaw dropping. I can think of a few musical moments from my past where everything felt like it was resonating together, and everything felt new. What a great feeling, especially at 17. Probably put you on multiple paths that still have yet to resolve. Very cool!

Yeah man. I can remember like yesterday. I was by myself at Wave in Shibuya. I knew nothing of Detroit techno, electro, or even really any of the sub genres at the time besides techno and house. Something about the cover captivated me, I recognized the Warp label from Aphex Twin and bought it. Popped in my discman and mind blown.

i dropped this as an OPENER track one night, as a follow up to some house dj... the warehouse was packed with with goth/freaks/heads/breakers and most were sitting down, playing on mattresses (yes mattresses) and doing nothing. only a few people were dancing.

i was pretty wasted and pulled this record out, and totally ****ed the previous dj by turning the deck that had his last record off, so his ****ty house track did the dreadful slowwwwww down to a halt.

i dropped this one and it was the only time i saw people absolutely RUSH to the dance floor when i played. i was in shock; i thought i would have run most out of there. but this track over a turbo rig was just insanity. the bit of reverb on the kick made the whole place vibrate. i can't describe how this track comes alive over a turbo rig.

the place just went insane. i think it was my best moment as a dj, not only because people got into it, but because it was a track i REALLY enjoyed too. i'll never forget that moment as it really reinforced the magic of mr stinson and gerald.
Could you let me know the name of the song and artist? This vid is now blocked on youtube Id love to hear it!

Underwater electronic futurism, in the words of James Stinson (Drexciya) - CDM Create



At the turn of the 21st century, one Detroit duo was way ahead. Almost two decades later, the world is revisiting Drexciya and their imagined underwater future - the time is right, and the deepest insights come from James Stinson speaking in his own words.

I hope one day they make the Drexciya mythos into a film, soundtracked entirely by Drexciya tunes.

Utterly fascinating stuff... reminiscing galore..

That their 1st 12's were unsellable outside Detroit & refused for distribution (?) - until the UK / Europe picked up on the sound with Ed DMX as the key man hyping Drexciya to Rephlex (!) ...incredible...
