Roland JD-800 Synthesizer



via this auction

"The JD-800 is Roland's answer to half a decade of hard to program synthesizers. Covered in sliders that act as dedicated editors just like a classic analog synth, the JD-800 is an extremely programmable and hands on digital synthesizer. It is also an interesting and great sounding digital synth with incredible flexibility and control. Internal ROM based wave forms are combined to build your sounds. The sounds are based on Roland's D-50, but updated for the nineties with multi mode filters - uncommon but welcome at the time.

The JD-800 came in a tough metal case capped off on the sides with large plastic covers.Programming may be a little too flexible for some users, but once you know what you're doing with it, almost any sound you can dream up can be dialed in and stored."
