The Roland JD-XA Analog/Digital Crossover Synthesizer is an advanced new keyboard that offers a unique and powerful approach to synthesis, putting the best elements of analog and digital synth technology at your fingertips!

First, there’s a four-part, all-analog monster with true analog filters and a direct dry output. Next up is a four-part digital engine powered by Roland’s SuperNATURAL synth technology, plus an impressive selection of potent effects. The  JD-XA’s engines can be used independently or interactively, providing an incredibly flexible platform for sound design, studio work, and live performance.

The JD-XA’s digital side is equipped with a four-part, 64-voice sound engine powered by Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL synthesizer technology. The engine is fully compatible with the popular INTEGRA-7 sound module, allowing you to take advantage of the large library of ready-to-play pro sounds.

Use the analog and digital parts side by side, stack them up for total sonic devastation, or shape digital waveforms via the analog filters to create sounds never heard before. With the JD-XA, you can forget about analog or digital—just close your eyes, imagine how the future sounds, and start creating music.

Comprehensive Effects and 16-Track Sequencer
Packed with pro-level effects, JD-XA delivers a huge amount of processing power for shaping sounds. Each analog and digital part is equipped with an MFX processor that has 67 different effect types, including high-impact options like Bit Crusher and others. Five effects processors are also available for system-wide use, including dedicated reverb, delay, and master EQ plus two TFX processors with 29 effect types each.

Hands-On Controls and Mic Input
The JD-XA offers a friendly, intuitive interface that’s built around harnessing every ounce of potential from its impressive sound engines. The 49-note keyboard is velocity sensitive and supports aftertouch, and there are ample sliders, knobs, and wheel controllers for direct hands-on control while creating and performing. The sliders and knobs are backlit to provide easy visibility on dark stages and in soft studio lighting

The Beast!!


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!

Analog and digital together!


The best of analog and digital together. Lots of sounds at your disposal. You can combine and layer the digital with the analog and create endless possibilities and incredible sounds. The interface is great. Perfect for the home electronic musician but definitely has its place on stage.

Amazing synth by Roland


The Roland JD-XA is a beast of a synthesizer. Within it you get both an analog synth and a digital synth. On the analog side you get true filters and on the digital side you get Rolands new SuperNATURAL sound engine. The best of both worlds. You can attach a microphone to the keyboard as well as create a 16 track sequencer. Worth every penny.

Incredible synth


This is a very versatile synthesizer with a ton of great sounds. It's easy to use and top quality. This thing is built to last and as long as it's taken care of it'll last a long time. It has a lot of different options to choose from to dial in the right sound that you're looking for. It's great for recording electronic music or for spicing up any other genre you may be working on.

Best of Both Worlds


Hands down this is a great analog and digital synthesizer in one. First you have a truly great four-part analog synth with true analog filters, and on the digital side you have a four-part, 64 voice engine. Which has full compatibility with the INTEGRA-7 sound module opening up a massive bank of pro sounds at your disposal. You are able to combine these two great synths and layer them to acheive an un believeable sound. Comes equipped with a great interface and plenty of knobs and sliders to be able to customize your sound anyway that you would like. With Built in vocoder functionality and plenty of pro-level effects this would be a great synthesizer for a player of any level.
