Overview

Sporting six-voice polyphony, 32 presets and 32 user presets for a 64-total memory bank and dual DCOs for each voice, the Roland JX-3P Analog Synthesizer pairs the power of vintage Roland analog synthesis with an intuitive user interface for an overlooked synth gem. Introduced at the same time as the JUNO series and built with the same VCOs and filters as the flagship series, this diamond in the rough summons the same lush synthesis notable on the recordings of Stevie Knicks, Vincent Clarke, and Astral Projection.

    It's Programmable. It's Preset. It's "Polyphonic!" The Roland JX3P is a very pleasing instrument. Right out of the box, it has lush synth strings, funky, wet basses and cheesy organs. Dig a bit deeper, either using an external programmer like the PG200 or one of the modern clones, and you will fin…

    I picked this up on Reverb, after trying one at a local used gear store. I did not buy it then because it had the controller and the condition was fair. The JX-3p I got on reverb is great. I prefer the Roland keyboard, and the sounds are really nice. You don't need the PG programmer for this. I hav…
