Description

This 61-key keyboard was purchased new by me in the early 1990s. It comes with a power supply and sustain pedal. Important note: this synthesizer has no bult-in speakers. You can plug in a standard 1/4" headphone jack or use the output cable ports to connect it to an amplifier or other audio device. I don't have the manual, but it can be found online here.

The Roland JX-1 is a performance oriented playback synth featuring classic Roland D-50, U-20, and D70 sounds among its collection. With its 4 editing sliders for basic filter, amp, and effects level controls, the user could have partial realtime editing control over the sound. There are also two main sliders for volume and brilliance, which was a filter control that made the sound soft/dull to bright and cleaner. 

Roland's popular joystick is also available onboard with pitch and modulation control. Also, all parts of the synthesizer engine are available via MIDI sysex. With proper software and editing hardware the user can dramatically create original sounds. However is order to save/store them the edits would have to be saved via software/hardware and later recalled through MIDI.
