News Roland JD-XA

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.




  • 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
  • LFO with triangle, sine, saw, square, Sample & hold and random waveforms ; rate, fade time, pitch depth, filter depth, amp depth and tempo sync
  • Mixer for the analog section with osc 1, 2 and aux levels
  • Vocoder and modulation for the microphone
  • 8 multi-effects with 67 types, 8 Part EQ systems, 2 TFX systems with 29 types, delay, 6 types of reverb, Master EQ and 8 types of reverb for the mic input

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