Roland intros JD-Xi synthesizer at NAMM


Roland has introduced the JD-Xi, a powerful compact synthesizer with onboard pattern sequencer and vocal fx.

Roland JD-Xi

Tiny, mighty, and affordable, the JD-Xi puts a true analog synth engine, Roland’s famous SuperNATURAL synth sounds, and many other creative tools under one hood. Equipped with 37 mini keys, this compact instrument delivers fat, warm analog bass and lead tones with ample controls for hands-on tweaking, plus polyphonic PCM essentials like pads, strings, brass, and more.

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!

  • Interactive crossover synthesizer with analog and digital sound engines.
  • Analog synth section provides authentic lead and bass tones.
  • Two digital synth sections with SuperNATURAL synth tones and 128-voice total polyphony.
