Roland has released a free update for its System-8 keyboard synthesizer, adding a new ‘Plug-Out’ that recreates the sound of their JX-3P.
The System-8 synth is based on analog circuit modeling technology, so it can load different models and recreate the sound of different synth designs. It can host three synth models, or ‘Plug Out’ synths, at a time.
The System-8 now comes with Plug-Out models of the Jupiter-8, Juno-106 & JX-3P, in addition to its native synth engine. Additional Plug-Outs are available, including the SH-2, SH-101, PROMARS and System-100.
Here’s an unofficial demo of the new JX-3P model, via ranzee:
