Everyone has been lamenting the lack of a Roland analogue synth for years but, with real analogue having such a resurgence currently, Roland simply couldn't afford to sit out of this market any longer.

It used to be that compact keyboards came with compact sounds and modest features. But this is 2015, and Roland’s latest offering is the JD-Xi, a diminutive keyboard that packs an impressive array of features and great sounds into a small and surprisingly affordable package.

I use the JD-Xi to compose music rather than play live or jam. Although all the demo patches are of the EDM genre, the device is capable of so much more. It is wonderful for generating ideas quickly using the loop sequencer.

Create impressive loops in a flash with the pattern sequencer and built-in drum kits, and explore expressive vocal textures with the gooseneck mic, Vocoder, and AutoPitch. Small in size and large in versatility, the JD-Xi is all about big sounds and big fun!Analog and digital synths in one keyboardWith its unique crossover sound engine, the JD-Xi provides the best of both worlds: the warm, smooth response of classic analog, and the clarity and versatility of modern digital. The newly developed monophonic analog synth section features saw, triangle, and square waveforms with pulse-width modulation and an analog filter, plus an independent sub oscillator for low-end power. 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 mic for vocoder, autopitch, and other vocal effectsThe JD-Xi comes with a sturdy, high-quality gooseneck mic that brings even more fun to the party. Using the Vocoder, you can sing into the mic and control the tone and pitch via sounds played on the keyboard. With AutoPitch, it™s simple to achieve the exaggerated, robotic vocal sounds that are common in today™s pop and electronic music styles. There™s also a cool Auto Note function that allows you to œsing JD-Xi synth sounds without touching the keyboard!Build loops with the four-track pattern sequencerUsing the intuitive pattern sequencer and large selection of onboard sounds, you'e able to create and perform sophisticated music with only the JD-Xi. The sequencer offers four separate tracks”two digital synth parts, analog synth, and drums”allowing you to build rich-sounding loops for any genre.

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.Pro drum kits for high-impact beatsPacked with a variety of dynamic drum kits, the JD-Xi delivers quality rhythm tones to suit any groove. Included are many types of electronic and acoustic kits, and the drum instrument assignments are conveniently labeled above the keys for quick identification. You can also personalize the kits for your music by adjusting filter, envelope, pitch, and pan parameters on individual drum sounds.Shape sounds with impressive effectsThe JD-Xi includes four simultaneous effects sections for enhancing any sound. Effect 1 and 2 provide selectable processing options such as Bit Crusher, Slicer, and Ring Mod, while dedicated Delay and Reverb sections make it easy to envelop sounds in spacious ambience.
