This Tiny Synth Does It All!

A tiny, mighty powerhouse, the Roland JD-Xi analog/digital crossover synthesizer gives you a true analog synth engine, along with Roland's famous SuperNATURAL synth tones, a 4-track pattern sequencer, a gooseneck mic with built-in Vocoder and AutoPitch, and USB for audio/MIDI connectivity. At Sweetwater, we were pleasantly surprised by the fat, warm analog bass and lead tones that we could coax out of the JD-Xi, just by tweaking its ample controls. On top of that, you also get other essential sounds such as pads, strings, brass, and more. One thing's for sure: the Roland JD-Xi analog/digital crossover synthesizer may be small, but it doesn't skimp on features or versatility!

Roland JD-Xi Analog/Digital Crossover Synthesizer at a Glance:
  • Analog and digital synth engines in one keyboard
  • Gooseneck mic for access to Vocoder, AutoPitch, and other vocal effects
  • 4-track pattern sequencer for building loops
Analog and digital synth engines in one keyboard

The Roland JD-Xi analog/digital synthesizer's unique crossover sound engine gives you the best of both worlds. On one hand, you get fat, warm analog bass and lead tones; on the other, you get the clarity and versatility of modern digital. The JD-Xi's monophonic analog synth engine gives you saw, triangle, and square waveforms with pulse-width modulation and an analog filter, along with an independent sub-oscillator, providing you with massive low-end power. On top of that, the JD-Xi's dual digital synth engines give you 128-voice polyphony and a plethora of top-notch SuperNATURAL synth tones, including pads, strings, electric piano, sound effects, and more!

Gooseneck mic for access to Vocoder, AutoPitch, and other vocal effects

Thanks to its sturdy, high-quality gooseneck mic, the Roland JD-Xi analog/digital crossover synthesizer is a creative tool that's amazingly fun to use. Using the Vocoder, you can sing into the mic and control your tone and pitch via sounds played on the keyboard. With AutoPitch, you can achieve the exaggerated, robotic vocal sounds that are common in modern pop and EDM. And even cooler - you can use the JD-Xi's Auto Note function to "sing" JD-Xi synth sounds without touching the keyboard!

4-track pattern sequencer for building loops

The Roland JD-Xi analog/digital crossover synthesizer's intuitive pattern sequencer, when used in conjunction with its huge selection of onboard sounds, lets you create and perform complete compositions. By using the sequencer's four tracks, you can create two digital synth parts, an analog synth part, and drums, letting you build rich-sounding loops. You get both real-time and step recording modes, as well as a TR-REC mode that is reminiscent of Roland's classic TR-series drum machines. On top of that, you get a great collection of preset patterns to help get you started!

Roland JD-Xi Analog/Digital Crossover Synthesizer Features:
  • Analog synth section provides authentic lead and bass tones
  • 2 digital synth sections with SuperNATURAL synth tones and 128-voice total polyphony

Fantastic Band in a Box.

I can put this synth as the best value for the money. Right up there with the Minilogue It has great drum rack to play with. It has Juno 106 sound Jupiter 8 sound, piano it’s ridiculous what this synth can do Great base tone and the vocoder so much fun .

Oh so good �

I haven't been making music for very long so this is perfect for me. It's really user-friendly and fun to play with and learn on. I highly recommend this for anyone who is just starting out or just wants to make music without feeling overwhelmed.


this little giant packs a punch. I Use the Roland on my native instruments machine software to make beats!

I am totally blown away!

Finally, a Roland hybrid synth! That I can afford! I am working my way through the many JD-Xi videos on YouTube! I love it! The vocoder is great! My singing voice leaves something to be desired, but with the vocoder I can always sing on key!
