About this item

Palen Music has a vastly expansive range of professional keyboards and accessories to help maximize your playing potential! The Roland JD-XA Analog/Digital Crossover Synthesizer is the cream of the crop when it comes to having all the bells and whistles you need to have an original sound. You can use it for sound creation, work in the studio, or even when you're performing live! It's versatile, a convenient size, and a great price, all assured to make your playing a hit!

The JD-XA is a unique crossover synth that brings together analog warmth and digital versatility in one super-creative, no- compromise instrument. First, there’s a four-part, all-analog monster with true analog filters and a direct dry output. Next up is a four-part digital engine powered by Roland’s SuperNATURAL synth technology, plus an impressive selection of potent effects. The JD-XA’s engines can be used independently or interactively, providing an incredibly flexible platform for sound design, studio work, and live performance. Use the analog and digital parts side by side, stack them up for total sonic devastation, or shape digital waveforms via the analog filters to create sounds never heard before. With the JD-XA, you can forget about analog or digital—just close your eyes, imagine how the future sounds, and start creating music.
