Martin Lüders has released a beta version of pg8x, a JX-8P inspired synthesizer plug-in for Windows.

Finally, I uploaded a beta version of the synth I am working on for the last couple of month. It is inspired by the JX8P and I am trying to capture as much of it’s character as possible.

The “working title” for it is PG8X, trying to merge the names of the progammer PG-800 and JX-8P without coming into conflict with copyrighted names. If anyone has better suggestions, let me know.

pg8x features

  • 6 voice polyphony.
  • Two DCO’s with Saw, Square, Pulse, Noise.
  • Hard Sync and Ring Modulation.
  • Two exponential envelop generators.
  • 24 dB resonant LP filter.
  • HP filter (3 stages).
  • Stereo Chorus.

pg8x for Windows (VST) is available as a free download. The Chorus section is also available as a separate plug-in, jx-chorus.
