How can something so small be so cool? Leave it to Roland to figure it out with this JX-03 addition to its Boutique line of synths! This course, by our favorite synthesis expert Rishabh Rajan, digs beneath the JX’s classic faceplate and excavates every synth secret this instrument has buried in its unique, retro design.
First you learn about this Roland synth’s proud heritage. Then Rishabh takes you knob-by-knob and button-by-button through the JX-03’s synth engine. He explains how it relates to the original JX-3P and all the new and extraordinary features that this modern remake introduces to the signal path. Learn all about the synthesis architecture including DCOs, VCAs, cross modulation and onboard effects. The sequencer comes next with a couple of in-depth tutorials on its programmable note, gate, rate, tie and range controls.
To complete this course, Rishabh takes you through some cool sound design workshops where all the knowledge of the previous videos come together to build some pads, organs and lead sounds! Learn all the Roland Boutique synths in our ever-expanding course library!
