Roland JD-XI Interactive Analog-Digital Crossover Synthesizer - 34 Mini Keys
Roland releases the amazing and economical JD-Xi Interactive Analog/Digital Crossover Synth. Tiny mighty and affordable the JD-Xi puts a true analog synth engine Roland’s famous SuperNATURAL synth sounds and many other creative tools under one hood. Equipped with 37 mini keys this compact instrument delivers fat warm analog bass and lead tones with ample controls for hands-on tweaking plus polyphonic PCM essentials like pads strings brass and more.

Create impressive loops in a flash with the pattern sequencer and built-in drum kits and explore expressive vocal textures with the gooseneck mic Vocoder and AutoPitch.

Small in size and large in versatility the JD-Xi is all about big sounds and big fun! With its unique crossover sound engine the JD-Xi provides the best of both worlds: the warm smooth response of classic analog and the clarity and versatility of modern digital. The newly developed monophonic analog synth section features saw triangle and square waveforms with pulse-width modulation and an analog filter plus an independent sub oscillator for low-end power. Two digital synth sections offer 128-voice polyphony and a wide range of high-quality SuperNATURAL synth tones including pads strings electric piano sound effects and many others.

The JD-Xi comes with a sturdy high-quality gooseneck mic that brings even more fun to the party. Using the Vocoder you can sing into the mic and control the tone and pitch via sounds played on the keyboard. With AutoPitch it’s simple to achieve the exaggerated robotic vocal sounds that are common in today’s pop and electronic music styles. There’s also a cool Auto Note function that allows you to “sing” JD-Xi synth sounds without touching the keyboard!

Using the intuitive pattern sequencer and large selection of onboard sounds you’re able to create and perform sophisticated music with only the JD-Xi. The sequencer offers four separate tracks—two digital synth parts analog synth and drums—allowing you to build rich-sounding loops for any genre.

Real-time and step recording modes are provided along with a special TR-REC mode for programming in the style of Roland’s classic TR-series beatboxes. It’s easy to play patterns and tweak sounds as you perform and many preset patterns are built in for jamming right out of the box. Packed with a variety of dynamic drum kits the JD-Xi delivers quality rhythm tones to suit any groove. Included are many types of electronic and acoustic kits and the drum instrument assignments are conveniently labeled above the keys for quick identification.

You can also personalize the kits for your music by adjusting filter envelope pitch and pan parameters on individual drum sounds. The JD-Xi includes four simultaneous effects sections for enhancing any sound. Effect 1 and 2 provide selectable processing options such as Bit Crusher Slicer and Ring Mod while dedicated Delay and Reverb sections make it easy to envelop sounds in spacious ambience. Each effects section can be turned on/off separately for the three synth sections and drums allowing you to shape your mix with many creative combinations.
