Get the best of both worlds - analog and digital – with the Roland JD-Xi Analog Digital Crossover Synthesizer!The Roland JD-Xi puts a true analog synth engine, Roland’s famous SuperNATURAL synth sounds, and many other creative tools at your fingertips and all under one hood.
Analog Meets Digital
The Roland JD-xi Crossover Synth lets you unleash your musical ideas without the constraints of creating exclusively in the digital or analog domain. With its 37 mini keys, the JD-Xi generates those fat, rich, warm tones associated with those famed Roland synths you’ve come to know and love, right alongside the clarity and versatility of modern digital signature sounds you need to cut through any mix, like horns, leads and many more.
Four-Track Pattern Sequencer w/Gooseneck Mic for Vocoder, AutoPitch, and Other Vocal Effects
Its integrated drum kits and Four-Track Pattern Sequencer lets you create tons of inspiring loops; 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, while the Vocoder (with gooseneck mic) and Auto Pitch correction lets your musical imagination run wild with no strings attached. Roland has even included a way-cool "Auto Note" function that allows you to “sing” JD-Xi synth sounds without touching the keyboard!
Gimme Da’ Beatz!
The JD-Xi is jam packed with dynamic drum kits in different flavors to suit any taste or mood. The kits are completely programmable and can be filtered envelope, pitch, and pan parameters right on down to individual drum sounds. Even the drum instruments are assignable and you can quickly identify each with its instrument type conveniently labeled above the keys.
Shape Sounds with Impressive Effects
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.
