Iconic JX-3P Sound & Built-In Controller

Designed to offer the huge sound associated with the classic JX-3P synth, the JX-03 provides the incredible tones of the JX-3P but with an innovative control surface based around the panel layout of the PG-200. Incorporating 25 knobs, 5 switches and 21 buttons the JX-03 offers advanced control giving you unlimited tonal shaping capabilities.

Additional Sound Shaping Options

Not only did Roland ensure the Boutique JX-03 could deliver the huge sound and control of the renowned JX-3P synth but they also added a range of new features such as extra waveforms for the DCO and LFO as well as an extended range and extra cross modulation options from the DCOs. These additions further expand the sound creation possibilities of the battle-tested JX engine.

16 Step Sequencer

The built-in 16 step sequencer lets you try out an array of ideas on the go without the need of a keyboard. Furthermore the ribbon controller allows you to preview the sound making programming patches quick, simple and effortless.

Chain Operation Mode

The JX-3P was renowned for its 2 digitally controlled oscillators for each of its 6 voices. With JX-03 you can use the innovative chain mode which allows you to connect two models using the MIDI in/out ports to create one powerful 8-voice synthesizer. Every additional unit chained adds 4 further voices of polyphony perfect for controlling from a large external keyboard.

High Quality USB Audio Interface

If you want to record directly into your chosen digital audio workstation the Roland JX-03 can also be used as a high quality audio interface via the USB connection. With a resolution of 24 bit / 44.1 kHz you can seamless record into your DAW. You can also store your patches and sequencer patterns with the USB data backup function meaning you will never lose your killer sounds again.

Optional K-25m Keyboard Unit

If you prefer to work with a keyboard unit in your synth then Roland has the answer. Designed to work seamlessly and effectively with the new K-25m keyboard, you can connect your JX-03 and start creating. With multiple docking positions and 25 velocity sensitive keys the K-25m keyboard (sold separately) is the perfect companion to the JX-03 compact synth.

An Interview with the Legendary Developers

Tojo: ''Our starting point was that we wanted to create a full-fledged synth in a compact form factor; something that might look like a gadget at first glance, but was capable of producing amazing sounds. We wanted to create a synth that people could casually enjoy, came with a built-in speaker, and could also run on batteries. Since we had the ACB (Analog Circuit Behavior) modelling technology that was developed for AIRA and a mini keyboard that was first incorporated in the JD-Xi, we thought that we could make something interesting by combining these two.
