Analog / Digital Hybrid Synthesizer
Incorporating an innovative and powerful analog/digital crossover sound engine the JD-Xi combines the best features of both to deliver an extremely versatile and expressive synth in one stylish and robust unit. Producing the warm and authentic tone of a traditional analog synth combined with the clarity and adaptability of a modern digital synth the JD-Xi is perfect for a range of music genres and playing styles. Featuring saw, triangle and square waveforms with pulse modulation and analog filtering the JD-Xi offers a huge variety of tones and also includes a independent sub oscillator for optimized low response. Two digital synth sections offer 128-voice polyphony and a wide range of high-quality SuperNATURAL synth tones, including pads, strings, electric piano, sound effects, and many others.
Gooseneck Microphone for Vocal Effects
With a built in gooseneck microphone you can produce a variety of vocoder, autopitch and other vocal effects to add a unique flavour to your performance. Simply sing into the gooseneck microphone and use the keyboard to control the pitch and sounds created whilst the auto note function allows you to "sing" synth sounds without even interacting with the keyboard.
Loops and Pattern Sequencer
The built in pattern sequencer the JD-Xi offers four separate tracks of two digital synths, analog synths or drum patterns allowing full and intricate loop creation. Additionally the real-time and step recording modes provide unique programming whilst the TR-REC mode offers the traditional Roland TR-Series beatboxes. It's easy to play patterns and tweak sounds as you perform, and many preset patterns are built in for jamming right out of the box.
Professional Sounding Drum Kits
Loaded with a huge variety of professional captured and edited drum samples the JD-Xi can create premium quality rhythm patterns with full and realistic sounding drums. With both electronic and acoustic drum kits the JD-Xi has kits to suit everyone which are clearly labelled and selectable through the built in screen. Furthermore you can also customize and edit each drum kit to create hybrid kits by adjusting the filter, envelope, pitch and pan parameters on each individual drum sound.
Sound Modulation & Effects
The JD-Xi incorporates four powerful and individual effects sections which allow you add a range of effects to your sounds to create unique and professional tones. With effect 1 and 2 offering effects such as Bit Crusher, Slicer and Ring Mod the JD-Xi also features independent Delay and Reverb controls to create spacious ambient tones. Each effects section can be turned on/off separately for the three synth sections and drums, allowing you to shape your mix with many creative combinations.
