No, it’s not the dashboard of the Millennium Falcon; it’s the latest and (fingers-crossed) possibly the greatest synth Roland will be releasing to date: the JD-XA Hybrid Polysynth synthesizer.
Due for its official release at Musikmesse 2015, the Roland JD-XA was tantalisingly placed alongside no other new products from the new Roland range at NAMM 2015. This alone said enough to the mesmerised on-lookers: this Analog/Digital crossover synthesizer was set apart from the rest of the brilliant new Roland releases and would be their pièce de résistance.
The other new released from Roland includes the JD-Xi analog synth and there were plenty of fanatsic new products from BOSS too, including the BB-1X bass distortion effects pedal. Take a look at all of the Roland and BOSS NAMM 2015 releases here.
We’re guessing that the JD-XA flagship synth from Roland will be available to pre-order this Spring/Summer, but for now all we can offer you is this straight-from-NAMM picture to drool over for the next couple of months. Enjoy!
