You can't decide whether you want the cutting tone of analog or the versatility of digital. The JD-XA is your peace of mind, then! This synth is an absolute beast! Imagine if you had a Virus Ti and a Korg Minilogue, put Roland spice, and rolled it up into one synth. Here you go! You can combine the two engines and create some unique textures not possible with just one engine. The sonic playground is super expansive, and what can I say, I love the Roland sound signature!
