We saw it at NAMM, but we had to wait until Musikmesse for Roland to finally unveil its JD-XA hardware synthesizer.

The new Roland JD-XA is a hybrid synth that combines a 4-part analog section with analog filters and direct dry out to a 4-part SuperNATURAL digital engine with effects. Both analog and digital engines can be used separately or interactively, either side by side, stacked, or by shaping digital waveforms with analog filters.

 

 

Specifications:

  • 49-key velocity sensitive keyboard with aftertouch
  • 4 voices of polyphony for the analog part
  • Up to 64 voices of polyphony for the digital section (depends on the loaded sound generator)
  • 4-part analog section with 2 oscillators + Aux, filter, amp, 2 pitch envelopes, filter envelope, amp envelope, 2 LFOs and 1 MOD LFO ; saw, square, pulse/PWM, triangle and sine waveforms ; pitch, fine, cross-modulation, pulse width, pulse width modulation controls ; attack, decay and envelope depth for the pitch envelopes, ring modulation, cross-modulation and oscillator sync ; filter section with 3 low-pass, one band-pass, one high-pass, a bypass with cutoff, resonance, keyboard, envelope depth, HPF and drive controls ; ADSR for the filter envelope, level and ADSR for the amp section
  • 4-part digital section with 3 partials (3 oscillators, 3 filters, 3 amps, envelopes for each section and LFO),  SuperNATURAL synth sounds use with compatibility with the Integra-7 ; saw, square, Pulse/PWM, triangle, sine and variation waveforms for the oscillators ; pitch, fine, pulse width, pulse width modulation controls ; attack, decay and envelope depth for the pitch envelopes ; ring modulation ; filter section with 3 low-pass, band-pass, high-pass, variation and bypass with cutoff, resonance, key track, envelope depth, HPF and ADSR envelope controls ; level and ADSR envelope for the amp section

  • 1/4” analog dry output
  • 1/4” stereo Click output
  • XLR/TRS combo mic input
  • Pedal input
  • CV/Gate outputs
  • MIDI in and out
