Roland JX-08 SEQUENCING (You're Allowed to Dance!)

"Roland JU-06A, JP-08, JX-03, SH-01A, SE-02 #ambient patches 👉

I was jamming with the Roland JX-08 on this beautiful and sunny - but cold - morning of Saturday, with two modified factory presets, testing the #sequencer, and it sounded too good not to recording it and share it with you!

This recording starts with PART B - a bass sequence that has a mono delay (dly1) on it.
PART A starts two minutes later, having a stereo delay (dly2) and the reverb (hall2) as effects.
No external effects were involved.

I recorded this session via USB Audio, on all the available audio channels that the Roland JX-08 comes with: the master - that includes the two Parts and the reverb also in one stereo channel, and I also kept each individual stereo channel of the two parts - that only have the delay as effect, resulting the original master output of the Roland JX-08, but backed by the individual channels!

Even my first choice was the Roland JD-08, since I always wanted a full size Roland JD-800, as I was waiting for my order to be delivered (about 14 weeks starting in November 2021!), I changed my mind and found this beauty on stock, locally (thanks Jutas!)!
I had a Roland JX-8P on my hands, a few years ago, and maybe it was a (bad) repaired unit, since the sound was really unattractive (had some knob and functions replacements on the panel), and that kind of made me to be reserved with the JX-08.
...Until I played my friend's Roland JX-8P, a near mint unit, and that's was all: the sweetness and warm of the sound made me want to have such a synth in my studio (but I'm not gonna pay the crazy prices from the SH market!).

Maybe the sound of the #RolandJX08 is not the same with the original, but I really don't care: the extras that are packed in it, makes the JX-08 perfect for my studio!
Arpeggiators, sequencers, a bunch of great effects, dual and split playing, 3 types of filters and so on!

Oh, and yes: my next move is the Roland JD-08! Definitely!
