Roland JX3P Vintage Analog Poly Synthesizer Ableton Live Pack Jam 2 - Summer Love

"Check out the pack now at

I thought I would do something a little different this time and just make a few quick little tunes with the new JX3P Ableton Pack sounds. This is the second one, entitled Summer Love.

The Roland JX3P was the first synth I ever got my hands on. I still remember the day well, walking into Sam Ash Music and lusting after the new Korg MS2000 on display. I didn't know much about synths at the time, as a guitarist and songwriter I knew they would expand my sound palette, and with some basic piano knowledge I could at least play backing chords and melodies along with pieces I would write. Unfortunately, the MS2000 was 900 dollars, and being a teenager I definitely didn't have that. It didn't stop me from standing in front of it playing with all the sounds for a good half hour. Finally one of the store employees starting talking to me about synths, and suggested I check out the vintage used Roland JX3P they took in. It came with the PG200 Programmer, case, and manuals for both the programmer and synth for only 225 bucks. I heard the first preset and knew I was taking it home. It still makes its way onto most of my recordings."
