Published on Oct 26, 2019 synth4ever

"Roland JD-XA synthesizer demo featuring sounds, presets and ambient soundscapes. This Roland JDXA synth demo showcases various sounds & patches including ambient pads, sequencer, leads and atmospheric textures. This Roland JD-XA demo was filmed at the Roland Inspiration Centre in Toronto, Canada.

The Roland JD-XA is a unique crossover hybrid synth that combines analog and digital engines into a single instrument. The analog engine features four parts and true analog filters and a direct dry output. The digital engine features four parts and is powered by Roland’s SuperNATURAL synth technology with 64-voice polyphony, plus effects.

The Roland JD-XA’s dual engines can be used independently or together to unlock versatile sound design capabilities. The JDXA features discrete analog with 2 x OSC, Filter, Amp, 4 x Env (2 x Pitch, Filter, Amp), and 2 x LFO per voice plus Analog Dry Out for raw signal output.

The Roland JD-XA's analog filter section is selectable 4-Pole, transistor-ladder, and multi-mode (LPF/HPF/BPF). The analog OSC section includes Cross Mod, Ring Mod, and OSC Sync, all of which can be used simultaneously and the LFO rate covers a wide range from ultra-slow to ultra-fast

The Roland JDXA's digital engine is compatible with INTEGRA-7 sound libraries from Roland’s online Axial sound portal, and digital parts can be routed through the analog filter. A comprehensive effects section with MFX (67 different effect types) for all parts, plus five system effects (Reverb, TFX1, TFX2, Delay, and Master EQ), provides additional sound shaping options.

Furthermore, the Roland JD-XA has a 16-track real-time or step sequencer (64 steps) with 8 tracks for internal parts, and 8 tracks for external parts. It also features onboard USB, MIDI, and CV/GATE interfaces plus flexible MIDI control functionality. In addition, there is a mic input and vocoder capability as well.

The Roland JD-XA is a versatile and deep synth which allows for extensive creative control and sound design. The ability to work with both digital and analog engines and route them in different configurations allows for new types of sounds to be explored from a variety of angles."
