Roland JX-8P is a 61-key, velocity- and aftertouch-sensitive, six-note polyphonic, fully analog synthesizer released by Roland in 1984. In a time of rising popularity of digital frequency modulation synthesis instruments, such as Yamaha DX7, JX-8P was marketed as the best of both worlds: while it was possible to create classic analog synth sounds, several new modulation parameters and redesigned hardware enabled it to produce certain types of sounds associated with FM synthesis, such as metallic percussion. Likewise, traditional hands-on controls were replaced with membrane buttons and one "edit" slider.The forerunners to the JX-8P were the JX-3P and the rack MKS-30. JX-8P is among the last true analog synthesizers produced by Roland, with Alpha Juno 1/2 synths, racks MKS-50 and MKS-70, an

  • Le Roland JX-8P est un synthétiseur analogique polyphonique commercialisé par le constructeur Roland entre 1984 et 1989, avant l'ère des synthétiseurs numériques tels le D-50.Son interface est numérique et pour faciliter l'édition des sons il existe un programmateur externe le Roland PG-800.Il sera suivi en 1986 par le JX-10 qui correspond à un double JX-8P.
