This video, via sonicstate, takes a look at the Analog Engine section of the new Roland JD-XA synthesizer, the company’s new flagship hybrid analog + digital synth. featuring both a SuperNatural digital engine and 4 analog voices:
The JD-XA’s analog side features a discrete, four-part engine with true analog filters and a direct dry output.
Each part has two oscillators, along with filter and amp sections and four envelopes with incredibly fast attack and response times. There are also two LFOs with super-smooth coverage from ultra-slow to ultra-fast.
After building an analog sound, users can route it directly to the dry output, or send it to the onboard digital effects to shape the sound further.
On the digital side, the JD-XA is equipped with a four-part, 64-voice sound engine powered by Roland’s SuperNATURAL synthesizer technology. The engine is compatible with the synth engine from the INTEGRA-7 sound module, a favorite of top producers, composers, and sound designers. This allows users to take advantage of the large library of custom INTEGRA-7 sounds, available for free at Roland’s Axial website.
