    With the PG-800 and the manual, it could not be more simple. Without the PG-800, I know if it's very practical use, but it is certainly better with

    SOUNDS

    For sounds see the notice on the Previous JX8P!
    The sounds are pretty anne 80 although it is a pure analog, probably due to the DCO who are not "heat" authentic VCO. on the other hand, all analog synths that ever existed, it is certainly the richest sound level: thanks principle of two synths in one, it can make sounds that are difficult to believe possible subtractive synthse! Including pianos, of course it's not "raliste" but I do not think we can do better with another analog ... In short, the possibilities are standards, there is no limit of its large electro-vintage. Otherwise it is true that the basic sounds are quite "new age", such as tablecloths, but it does that the user to CRER sound banks more current!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Here I just wanted to perform all necessary the opinion which has just been on the post JX8P. Trs INTERESTED but the person who described seem to know what a sampler and a sample
    c an analog so all sounds are gnrs by addition and subtraction of basic waveforms (sine, square triangle ...) gnres by oscillators (in the case of JX8P, the DCO Digital Controlled Oscillator, VCO to oppose the Voltage Controlled Oscillator found in even older synths)
    So no pr-recorded sounds, no samples in the JX8P and others (jx3p, JX10), only one of its custom settings are saved in banks (waveform, DIFFERENT paramtrs value as cut-off, ADSR envelope, etc ...)

The default key for this synth comes from the chorus, which produces a blast standard. is what can be a default of mine I have no rponse this.

    I use it for 16 years and is an excellent synthtisuer keyboard that can make a flask scne done everything right for his age.

    SOUNDS

    It's always a pleasure to create a slick sound and other possibilities are as numerous: what I like most is the very soft ground, hovering but it can be quite the opposite, the lower that can be seen in every way: slap, round, deep bass, percussive bass etc ... there are more sounds grandiose and very rich ... on the vibrato, forget it .. there are all kinds and again, as we have 2 JX8P, everything is enhanced .. maybe we have no drums, but you can invent interesting spin on the chorus .. 2, I can not find the breath that the describes a commentaire.Je do not separate me because for 400 or 500th it is not worth the peine.Le keyboard is very good, a good master keyboard comprehensive and aesthetics.

    OVERALL OPINION

    As analog synth, he and I have so little evidence of comparison, my keypads (EM2000-U220-I had korg x5) can not get out the very complex that I can get . In time the background, creating music ... electronic music (+++) is a valuable supplement (but I'm not a pro .. careful ..)

    So: no pg-800 rating: 2 / 10
    with pg-800 rating: 10/10

    SOUNDS

    -Superb machine, which brings together the top all the synthetic sounds of the 80s!
    No-realistic sounds (though the piano sound is particularly good for an emulated analog ...)
    - The chorus is pretty good but lacks a good reverb. The chase is really EXCELLENT play, it gives some life to the bass lines that is great.
    -The term is rather good if we clean out the contacts
    -Pads to die, brass and insolent pechus (the sounds Europe!), Hovering strings and creamy, sharp leads, super romantic e.piano very typical, basses of all kinds (TB303, TR909 ,...).

    OVERALL OPINION

    Really for the synth cover everything from the 80's and even for the trans or hardrock. He and a sampler, you are the king of the group! A bold sounds far from all modern synths. It can cover all genres. A counselor at fans of depeche mode, cure, Europe, Van Halen, Jan Hammer ... It may sound like a Jupiter or almost like a dx to you to program but the rewards are worth the effort. An alternative to an andromeda a6 with more personality and the famous Roland grain, inimitable.

    Not much to add on the characteristics of the JX10.
    Say it offers a 76-key keyboard, useful for making a master keyboard in home studio. Subtlety: in master control, place its MIDI => Parameters => Upper off in Local, Local in Lower and Off.
    In addition, this synth comes with DCO (Digitally control oscillators). It offers 12 voices of polyphony. In fact, the JX-10 is two JX-8P.

    FYI, I bought € 500 in 2005 with the programmer, the PG800, and two memory cartridges: one M-64C, an M-16C.

    UTILIZATION

    Sounds can be found on the net, blackjack. As for the production of sounds, it is better to have the PG800: it makes life easier. Otherwise, take head and galley ... Casually manual is helpful. I have French.

    SOUNDS

    The JX crushes all plugins supposed to emulate the analog. Its sound is warm, despite the DCO who equip. This synth is a formidable weapon for sound design, create layers and bass. More surprising for an almost entirely analog: it is capable of reproducing the type Rhodes electric pianos, which are very good road.

    OVERALL OPINION

    In short, you guessed it: I am extremely happy with this synth. I'm not ready to sell.

    Effects: chorus, which adds to the thickness and Stereo (and also a big label that sticks "80 YEARS" on the line)

    This synth is clbre for the implmentation noon bte over the world is - say you can not edit custom settings via MIDI SysEx. So it's really embarrassing, impossible to control via a MIDI controller or computer. I personally use the Controller with PG800, otherwise to produce the sounds in the menus and everything, I think it's faster trs pnible and especially little cratif.

    12 voice polyphony! APRS can gather the voices in unison or mono modes, to magnify the sound, which opens many doors.

    UTILIZATION

    See above, the edition of the sounds is simple if you have the PG800 if not better to forget. Note also that there is possibility to store sounds on cartridge M-64C, and that through it we can store and change its patches on the internet (there are few circulating). Not bad.

    SOUNDS

    APRS then have spent many years with VST mulate analog machines ... The diffrence is striking here! The basic sounds are truly alive, has nothing to see. You can get a good sound in much less time than the virtual, fewer contortions. For the ds dpart signals sound good! The DCOs are therefore more stable (but less alive) of the VCOs Previous gnrations of synths.

    But it's wonderful to have these sounds under your fingers, it's really inspiring! L o this machine is the highest is on the ground. There is a preset, which is the sound carrment Badalamenti has used the theme of Laura Palmer's twin peaks, has says it all: you see the kind of sound. There are also some who are able to sync INTERESTED in people from the head roland c'tait probably a bit to get closer to the synthse FM, and gives a lot of things . There is such a preset marimba which is excellent, so This category of sounds is possible too!

    on the other hand there is a big black spot is that the attack is mollissima ... Finally, a will, it does not 0.5 seconds either, but it's true that it is a little soft, vague, and it is difficult to sound nervous. We can get away with tinkering with the sync and envelopes, but in passing it Adform the attack sound. Let's say a pure attack saw dry, has no.

    The filter is good, but I am not an expert. Rsonnance with the substance, it can go on a self-oscillation, it is always an option supplmentaire nice!

    APRS should know that the principle of the JX10 is that you can stack two "tones" (a "tone" = 2 oscilloscope and treatment filter envelope and they are going derrire). And this possibility opens normment overlay doors and made every time this synth a monster synthse extremely comprehensive. All of a sudden we end up with four oscilloscope and 4 envelopes in bulk. It will take some work but it can happen extremely sophisticated sounds!

    I like the sounds: the pads and synthetic sounds really, few things a little Russian FM
    I dtest sounds: electric piano and the DX7 is all that I hate. There are many presets a little ugly in the machine, just because Roland was willing to follow the current FM ... but hey, the FM hum ... sometimes have to like what.

    9 / 10 because of this story of attack soft

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for one month only. I finally rcupr a cartridge that will allow me to listen to the sounds of the original plants that had erased t mine.

    + It is really cheap for what you offer.
    + Can synthses standards and beautiful sounds of bases
    - Edition impossible without PG800
    - Attack a little soft

    tt too much to tell, but I recommend this synth that is NOT Prepayments him, probably because it is big (I did not take him on scne) and can not be controlled ller edition in the afternoon. Tight deadlines it sounds serious and it is super versatile.

    SOUNDS

    From the numrique, we quickly realized that indeed the analog - even though COD - is something else. Low dcollent littralement wallpaper, especially if you use the Unison mode, and even more bitimbralit.
    Can be full of sound with these 2 COD (I AIM prsence of the waveform sinusodale), leads, basses and tablecloths, all in which the analog r could.
    The bitimbralit can accder trs sounds rich.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I redraw my opinion, post hot when I was not PG-800 programmer that I managed to procure a second time.
    In my search for a first analog synth, I chose it because it does not suffer from the soaring price of any instrument Tiquet "analog". In my research, I tudi The series Juno but prices are rising furiously (600 Juno 60) and problem meeting to give the 106 rflchir.
    However, its CHARACTERISTICS make this JX-10 machine formidable in the first place bitimbralit with prospects monstrous, 12-voice polyphony, backup space, MIDI ... It offers two DCO and not as a single on Juno for example.
    This lack of recognition is certainly the lack of knobs. Without the PG-800 is a synth preset, the edition is so broken-head with a wheel dial super slow ...
    With the JX-10, PG-800 is essential. When I was not PG, I programmed a few sounds before dropping.
    In short, I highly recommend this synthtiseur DSIR acqurir the musician without an analog dpenser astronomical sums impractical but we have to get a PG-800 (200).

    I have nothing to add to the detailed but two corrections to be made:
    - JX-10 does not have jacks for external tape backup
    - The ability of the sequencer is about 400 marks on a cartridge M-16C and 1600 on an M-64C

    UTILIZATION

    Here we approach the dark side of the JX-10: l user interface. I will not dwell on the problems of planning and sounds in the absence of PG-800, nor on the MIDI implementation and edited by Sysex widely discussed in the previous opinions and forums.

    - Alpha-dial to change values is very slow, making the tedious programming patches (PG-800 is only for the tones).
    - I do not like the double numbers in base 8 for the patches (Roland usual) and decimal for tones, and so only have a numeric keypad, it could be used to enter parameter values happen and so the alpha-dial.
    - Pitch bend lever can not be settled on 2, 3, 4 or 7 semitones (we can not at the octave!)
    - It is a shame not to assign more than two types of parameters to control sliders.
    - The dial memory / cartridge is completely left of the keyboard, so far the selection buttons patches and tones.
    - The sequencer is not general interest: a single track, but not edit, no metronome tempo sound so random, no MIDI transmission, must use a cartridge ... This is ultimately a notebook that would have been more usefully be replaced by an arpeggiator.
    - The manual is sketchy and incomplete (nothing on the MIDI backup for example).

    However, despite the fact that many things were sloppy (perhaps because of an early exit due to the emergence of digital), I give him some good points.
    Keyboard-very nice, with good velocity and effective after-touch (on mine anyway). I would have liked a slightly heavier touch.
    - Display of 32 characters (great for the time)
    - Entries for the 4 foot controllers (expression and switch)
    - Good master keyboard with MIDI split
    - Once cased the PG-800, there is still enough room to put beer, peanuts and ashtray :-)

    SOUNDS

    on the other hand, what makes the strength of the JX-10 is its sounds, remarkable and recognizable. I am surprised to assess the quality of sounds like flutes, typically not credible on most analog, and I even reconciled with synthetic horns. For those who enjoy big sounds, Unison mode, which allows stacking of COD per note 8, combined with chorus and detune, produces sounds that you return the stomach ... The Dual Mode (2 tones stacked) makes sounds very rich, and if we associate the Chase Play (delay between the 2 tones), it reaches heights of wealth and complexity, foreshadowing the tone for future developed digital synths of the mark, but with the warmth of analog. The downside is that we often want to use Chase Play which makes Monophonic synth JX very rich at the expense of bitimbralité with split.
    The only criticism I will make the sounds of JX is the low reactivity of the attack. When

    OVERALL OPINION

    long ago, I wanted to buy my first real synth, I have tried several, mostly digital Korg and Yamaha, but the JX-10 that made me dream. Lack of resources (it was worth 13,000 francs, 2000 € in 1987), I had "merely" a Juno-2 (the last analog Roland), sounding less complex, but with an interface accomplished.
    For two years I looked absently ads, and last month, I came across a good deal: a Super JX in perfect condition, with PG-800 and M-16C cartridges and M-64C, for 500 €.
    Despite its flaws, the JX-10 is among the best analog synths Multipurpose quality and variety of its sounds. I recommend it without hesitation to those who can bother with a keyboard large and robust, if the rack version, the MKS-70, offers the same sound and better MIDI implementation, but is trading much higher.
