The Roland S-10 is a good sampler,but the quick disc drive is a weak point,buying secondhand QD? Is finding a needle in a haystac!! I am lucky:i've got 6 quick-disc!!so i can store 12 sounds!!but there are only 4 memorybanks!! Thats also a weak point!But stil i use my s-10 and have fun with it,do not forget that the technology behind musical instruments is important,but that the task of making sound is essential,i want to say a simple triangle can also do the job(of making sound...the rest is up to YOU!!!)

The S-10 is very limited yes. As to being complicated to use....not even close. It is about as easy as it can get to use and did a better job than alot of the early samplers too.

Hello to all curious S10 users To me the S10 has always been a nice little keyboard to be proud of. Perhaps the very first sampler designed for a wide public, it was not cheap. Out of the mid 80's it started the frenzy of sampling. As most of the contributors, mine has its disk drive belt burned so I cannot play it anymore, I hope I will find some time to fix it based on what I read at this place.

I cannot imagine any circumstance at all where the S10 will merit 5/5. It is one of the most limited and complicated to use of all of the early samplers. It was poorly specified when it came out, yet was quite expensive when compared to superior opposition. also, it ran on quick discs. Say no more!

To me the S-10 did and still does just what Roland designed it to do. Nothing more and nothing less and does it very easy and sounds good too. Not bad for the money. Very limited yes, but is usable just the same and are built like tanks too. Very simple board to fix and the QD drive as limp as it may be does just it was made to do and also is easy to fix. I have repaired many of them and have many parts both new and used. I will try to help anyone who wants to keep their S-10 in action or any of the S-Series stuff from Roland. I say let the S-10 live on. It was a neat little board.
