Product Description

The JD-XA is a unique crossover synth that brings together analog warmth and digital versatility in one super-creative, no- compromise instrument. First, there’s a four-part, all-analog monster with true analog filters and a direct dry output. Next up is a four-part digital engine powered by Roland’s SuperNATURAL synth technology, plus an impressive selection of potent effects.

The JD-XA’s engines can be used independently or interactively, providing an incredibly flexible platform for sound design, studio work, and live performance. Use the analog and digital parts side by side, stack them up for total sonic devastation, or shape digital waveforms via the analog filters to create sounds never heard before. With the JD-XA, you can forget about analog or digital—just close your eyes, imagine how the future sounds, and start creating music.

Roland JDXA Analog Digital Crossover Synthesizer Features

  • Advanced synthesizer with independent analog and digital sound engines
  • Discrete analog synth engine (four parts) 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
  • Analog filter section features 4-Pole, transistor-ladder, and multi-mode (LPF/HPF/BPF) filters with supremely smooth, natural response to knob movements
  • OSC section includes Cross Mod, Ring Mod, and OSC Sync, all of which can be used simultaneously
  • LFO rate covers a wide range from ultra-slow to ultra-fast
  • Incredibly fast attack envelope time
  • Separate digital section built around SuperNATURAL synth engine (four parts, 64 voices) that’s compatible with INTEGRA-7 sound libraries from Roland’s online Axial sound portal
  • Digital parts can be routed through the analog filter section for warm, organic results
  • Comprehensive effects with MFX for all parts plus five system effects (Reverb, TFX1, TFX2, Delay, and Master EQ)
  • Flexible routing options for highly creative sound design
  • Intuitive 16-track pattern sequencer (8 tracks for internal parts, 8 tracks for external parts) for fast creation of songs and loops
  • Onboard USB, MIDI, and CV/GATE interfaces plus flexible MIDI control functionality make the JD-XA the ideal centerpiece for live performance and music production
  • Mic input allows you to modulate synth sounds with your voice and explore classic Vocoder functionality
  • Plenty of backlit knobs, sliders, and controllers for hands-on sound shaping
The JD-XA takes the crossover concept to an advanced level by seamlessly uniting cutting-edge DSP technology and pure analog synthesis.

The analog filter in the JD-XA has both a smooth sound and a lighting-sharp response, giving you a high level of creative control when shaping sounds. The accuracy and quick response of the JD-XA’s envelope is important too, as it defines the leading edge of the sound. Each individual analog part can have its own dedicated effect, and all parts can be processed together through digital effects such as master EQ, chorus, fuzz, and many others.

The crossover advantage provides musicians a wonderful marriage of detailed digital sound and powerful analog sound.

The digital section offers a diverse palette of sounds, from fat synth waveforms to crisp metallic timbres and beyond. Digital sounds can be routed through the analog filter, instantly adding organic richness. Massive hybrid sounds are also possible by using both engines together. For example, use Poly Stack mode to layer the four analog parts for richness and body, then add digital tones on top for extra spice.

Thanks to the powerful synth engines, effects, and hands-on controls, dramatic textures are easily created using common building blocks like synth waveforms and white noise.

Roland’s famous Supersaw waveform coming from a digital part becomes a very warm and rich pad sound just by passing it through the analog filter. Even simple white noise can be transformed into a range of complex sound effects that are perfect for film and game scores. First, enhance the noise using two TFX types, such as one for subsonic reinforcement and the other a short reverb for body. After that, process the sound through the analog Ring Mod and Cross Mod functions and tweak their controls in real time for a variety of cool tonal colors.

Great synth!

Product Review

I could get lost in this thing for days. Great synth, gives you the best of both worlds, (analog and digital) and let’s you create pretty much any sound you want. Only bad thing I would say is that the manual isn’t as explanatory as I’d like it to be, so I’ve had to do quite a bit of extra research on it. But other than that, this machine is a blast!

Worth every penny

Product Review

I've been playing around with synthesizers since the 70s when arp introduced the odyssey and found this jdxa to be the most incredible synth yet and the most user friendly giving you more ways to explore new and amazing creations, will spend years enjoying it and learning new ways to create new interesting ideas

Powerful

Product Review

Very powerful synth and much deeper than it look. Sounds like nothing else ...just a mammoth synth.... The learning curve is pretty steep but is worth it since you can combine Super natural digital with 4 anolog voices that have 2oscillators each. The huge number of effects that can be applies to individual voices makes this giant sonic machine create sounds that are not possible on any current synth.

Truly a new beast from Roland

Product Review

I heard this instrument used on Automatica and had to buy it, the learning curve is indeed steeper than most synths, but the fluidity and usability once you've mastered it is indeed worth the time. Great sounds, great features, all in all, a great buy.

Having stepped up from the jdxi thinking it may be the same in functionality this is far more tedious. However great sound For the money.
