Overview

Crafted with six-voice polyphony, MIDI capability and dual DCOs, the Roland JX-8P Analog Synthesizer is an excellent introduction into the world of vintage synthesis. Conceived as a streamlined, stage-friendly unit with easily adjusted sliders controlling the synthesis parameters, the JX-8P's 64-section memory bank summons sound from warm liquid oscillation to metallic vibrato attack in the breadth of a finger roll. Built on the same technology as its more famous JUNO cousin, this stalwart has been used by the likes of Depeche Mode and 808 State.

They are the digitally controlled type which means that they stay in tune, and give the JX8P a somewhat smooth sound. The six filters are all analog, and feature a unique configuration that was designed b…

    This is the first "vintage" synth I've ever owned, and it's a dream come true. Soundwise it's incredibly lush, bright and present sounding, and the presets only give a glimpse of what can be done with it. Without the programmer, you'll have to either work out a MIDI/USB solution within a DAW for qui…
