Time machine: ROLAND JX-8P Analog Synthesizer 1985

September 1, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The Roland JX-8P is a programmable polyphonic analog synthesizer from 1985. It is 6 voice polyphonic, it has 2 DCO’s per voice. Oscillator sync and cross modulation available. Analog resonant filters. 2 envelopes. Velocity sensitive keyboard. It also has aftertouch, but be warned, you need very strong fingers… 😀 It has a built in chorus (two settings) and unisono modes.

It has 64 presets and 32 patch memory for your own patches. The optional PG-800 was a programmer which allowed tweaking the sounds with sliders and knobs – like on earlier analog synths. But even without the PG-800 sound editing is easy like on a Korg Poly-800.

The JX-8P has MIDI and sysex abilities, but no tape interface.
