An Analog/Digital Beast of a Synth!

The quest for a super-creative, no-compromise synth stops with the Roland JD-XA. Seriously, this analog/digital crossover synthesizer is an absolute beast! First of all, you get an all-analog synth engine with true analog filters and a direct dry output. On top of that, you get a digital engine powered by Roland's SuperNATURAL technology, along with a robust selection of phenomenal effects. Whether you use the JD-XA's engines separately, or combine them into a single tone-generating monster, you'll find that you have everything you need for sound design, studio work, or live performance.

JD-XA Analog/Digital Crossover Synthesizer at a Glance:

  • Enjoy some classic analog synth mojo
  • Create expressive, natural digital sounds
  • Combine analog and digital for some distinctive sounds
  • Analog filters deliver warm sound and smooth, organic response
  • Packed with digital effects for handling any sound-shaping tasks
  • 16-track pattern sequencer lets you create music quickly and easily
  • Harness uber-powerful synth engines with hands-on control
  • Powerful, flexible design makes routing a snap
  • Mic-controlled modulation and onboard vocoder

Enjoy some classic analog synth mojo

The JD-XA analog/digital crossover synthesizer's four-part analog engine is a monster. Each part has two oscillators, along with filter and amp sections and four envelopes. Add to that incredibly fast attack and response times and a pair of ultra-smooth LFOs, and you have yourself a serious tone-generating beast! The JD-XA lets you create sounds from scratch, or you can configure it as an eight-oscillator, analog version of the mythical Supersaw waveform. Or if you really want to get swept away, invoke the power of the JD-XA's Poly Stack mode for some incredibly warm, organic four-note chords. And once you've sculpted your analog tone to taste, you can route it directly to the JD-XA's analog dry output or send it to its onboard digital effects. The only limit is your imagination!

Create expressive, natural digital sounds

Although the JD-XA analog/digital crossover synthesizer excels as a classic-styled analog synth, it's so much more than that. You also get a completely separate four-part, 64-voice digital sound engine that's powered by Roland's acclaimed SuperNATURAL technology. Compatible with the engine from the INTEGRA-7 sound module, a firm favorite of top producers, composers, and sound designers everywhere, the JD-XA also lets you create some of the most expressive and natural sounds that you'll ever hear.

Combine analog and digital for some distinctive sounds

There's a huge benefit to having analog and digital engines under the same hood. Thanks to its distinctive crossover design, the JD-XA analog/digital crossover synthesizer lets you combine its analog and digital synth engines (although you can use them separately if you want to) - giving you two synths in one. The real magic; however, happens when the JD-XA's engines interact with one another. For example, routing digital sounds through the JD-XA's analog filters, or using them as modulation sources for the analog engine's Cross Mod and Ring Mod functions, will provide you with all sorts of new ways to create your own unique form of sonic mayhem.

Analog filters deliver warm sound and smooth, organic response

The filters in the JD-XA analog/digital crossover synthesizer are 100 percent old-school analog, providing you with a warm sound and incredibly smooth, organic response. You get a 4-pole, a transistor ladder for more severe filtering, as well as a multi-mode filter for the essential LPF, HPF, and BPF duties. You'll be blown away by the JD-XA's unique circuit design, which provides you with a distinctively dynamic resonance that lends a particularly aggressive character that simply demands to be heard.

Packed with digital effects for handling any sound-shaping tasks

The JD-XA analog/digital crossover synthesizer is absolutely packed with digital effects, making it well-equipped to handle any sound-shaping tasks that you want to throw at it. Not only do you get the essentials such as reverb, delay, and EQ, you also get two TFX processors with 29 effect types each. On top of that, you get a powerful MFX processor that provides you with 67 different effect types that you can apply separately to each analog and digital part.

16-track pattern sequencer lets you create music quickly and easily

While you can use the JD-XA analog/digital crossover synthesizer's USB interface to work seamlessly with your favorite DAW, you can also use its built-in 16-track pattern sequencer to get up and running without even plugging into your computer. The JD-XA's sequencer provides you with 8 tracks for internal parts and 8 tracks for external sources, allowing you to build sequences and loops quickly and easily. You can use the JD-XA's real-time recording mode to lay down your parts linearly, or use its step-recording mode to create your parts step by step. Regardless of your personal preferences, the JD-XA lets you create music without stepping on your toes or getting in your way. It's pure inspiration!

Harness uber-powerful synth engines with hands-on control

Even if you're working in a pitch black room or a darkened stage, the JD-XA analog/digital crossover synthesizer's interface makes it child's play to harness the potential of its uber-powerful synth engines. Not only to you get velocity-sensitive keys with aftertouch, you also get plenty of backlit sliders, knobs, and wheel controllers to shape your sound to sonic perfection.

Powerful, flexible design makes routing a snap

The JD-XA analog/digital crossover synthesizer's flexible design makes routing a snap. You can route a single mod source to four destinations, and you're able to control external modules or DAW plug-ins via MIDI, USB, and CV/GATE, which lets the JD-XA integrate comfortably with any live or studio setup.

Mic-controlled modulation and onboard vocoder

Let's face it: vocoders are fun! The JD-XA analog/digital crossover synthesizer's mic input adds extra dimension to your music by letting you use a microphone as a modulation source, controlling filter cutoff, Cross Mod, and the JD-XA's other parameters with your voice. You can also conjure up classic vocoder tones, or add some reverb to your vocals with the mic's dedicated reverb processor. Any way you slice it, plugging a mic into the JD-XA is a sonic adventure!
