Roland JD-Xa Hybrid Digital / Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"This is an amazing synth capable of massive sounds! Vocoder? Check. 4 part analog? Check. 4 part digital synth? Check. Making unreal massive sounds? Priceless!

This really is a sound designer's dream synth. Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran fame helped design it in partnership with Roland. I hate to let it go, but other gear awaits. It is barely used, never toured, in mint condition, and super clean with all the original packaging. I also include the replacement control overlays from Roland. The stock control panel is very glossy, so they made a matte version you can apply over the top to help in reading the controls. See the photos for reference. I am also including a 32GB USB drive with several banks of sounds, which are free to download from Roland, and many more available too. You can plug the USB drive into the unit and they will load when the USB button is activated on the keyboard. Check out Roland's site for all the details on the synth. Watch the Gattobus video too to get the big picture of what this amazing board can do!"

Nice glossy pics!
