Manufacturer's ID: JD-XI
What we say:
At A Glance:
The JD-Xi from Roland is one of the best affordable synthesizers out there. We are astonished at just how much Roland managed to cram into it. You’ll find an analog synth, two separate SuperNATURAL synth parts, a vocoder and a drum machine all in this compact unit. Thanks to the 4-Track sequencer you can create full blown songs with drums and multiple synth parts. It is one of our favourite synths hands down!
Features We Love:
Analog and Digital
The JD-Xi features both analog and digital synth engines. The analog section is monophonic and provides those classic warm tones for bass and lead parts. The digital engine offers 128 note polyphony, which is great for pads and keys parts. There are tons of presets already loaded, and it’s easy to create your own patches.
There are also plenty of classic and modern drum sounds on board which you can play on the keys live, and sequence as the foundation of your tracks.
4-Track 16 Step Sequencer
The JD-Xi has a 4-Track 16 step sequencer on board. Having the 4 tracks means we can layer a drum part, an analog synth part and two digital synth parts together. You can compose entire songs from this, or at the very least lay the foundation for you to work on later in the studio. We’ve never had so much fun on a synth in this price range.
