Amazing analog ROLAND JX-3P vs Darth NoiseLab - spacesounds & PG-200

Published on Jun 23, 2017 NoiselabCH

"Meeting vintage ROLAND JX-3P & the programmer PG-200, exploring sounds from deep space and deep sea, some mad house sounds, psychedelic fun.

The ROLAND JX-3P is a 6-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer with 2 DCO's per voice, resonant high- and lowpass filter, on board chorus and 128-step sequencer. Usual substractive synthesis with option to cross-modulate the 2 DCOs, resulting in unusual metallic analog sounds.

As most analog synths from the early 1980's the ROLAND JX-3P had commercially no chance against the new digital synths, e.g. Yamaha DX7. Still somewhat underrated, I think it's a great synth with it's own character, probably less fat than the Junos (due to the software generated LFO and ADSR the JX-3P uses), however much more versatile in my view. At least with PG-200 or another suitable controller."
