Roland Virtual Sonics announces the addition of the iconic JX-3P to Roland Cloud’s legendary series. Originally released in 1983, the JX-3P was one of the earliest programmable preset polyphonic synthesizers and Roland’s first MIDI-equipped machine.

“The revolutionary new JX-3P has six voices, twelve Digitally Controlled Oscillators, 64 programmable memories, Chorus, a built-in polyphonic sequencer, and MIDI interface (a new system of interface developed for computer-controlled instruments), for the very low price of $1395.”  — Original JX-3P 1983 Product Description

Now available as part of the Roland Cloud, the virtual JX-3P offers crystalline ACB-component replication of the original’s sounds. From classic strings to crushing metallic pads, this six-voice polyphonic recreation is identical to its hardware counterpart. With push-button interface and concurrent versatility, users will discover what made this synth a singular addition to Roland’s catalog.

In addition to its 64 iconic memory programs and revolutionary two DCOs, the updated JX-3P comes with an all-new effects module—including delay, distortion, reverb, etc. — and a powerful arpeggiator. Experience the JX-3P in its traditional format, or with a click, unleash the power of the coveted PG-200 interface.

Upon release, the PG-200 facilitated a hands-on manipulation of the JX-3P’s rich sonic palette. Mapped for the PLUG OUT interface of the SYSTEM 8, the PG-200 controls are intuitive. The live connection between the SYSTEM 8 and a user’s computer allows for parameter adjustment within the software itself, or with the turn of a knob on the SYSTEM-8. The JX-3P allows for seamless sonic control.
