New Instrument Inspired By The Roland JX-3P

UVI introduces UVX-3P      01/03/13

UVI tells us that their new UVX-3P was developed with the same care and thoroughness as their other Vintage series instruments. A JX-3P was fully restored to factory spec, programmed by members of their sound design team and deeply multi-sampled, capturing samples both dry and with the built-in analog chorus enabled. They say that great care was taken to capture a wide range of the sonic capabilities of this synth, giving you 160+ presets in all.

Compatability

With the free UVI Workstation 2.0.9 (required version), UVX-3P can work:

• as a stand-alone instrument, compatible with Mac & PC

• as a VST, AudioUnit, RTAS and MAS plug-in.

 

With MachFive 3 – make the most of all editing features included.


About the JX-3P

In 1983, Roland introduced one of the first affordable analog synths, the JX-3P. The JX-3P signaled a shift away from control dense synths like the JUNO and JUPITER series for a less intimidating, more entry-level aesthetic aimed at players who wanted the Roland sound without being distracted by a slew of controls.

That said the JX-3P was in no way technically inferior, offering many of the same components as its more expensive siblings‚ it even boasted dual DCO's per-voice compared to a single in the JUNO series making it somewhat of a sleeper powerhouse.
Not as pervasive as the JUNO series, the JX-3P was still a very capable and expressive instrument used by many well known pop acts such as Stevie Nicks, Vince Clark and The Cure as well as electronica pioneers Orbital and The Future Sound of London.

UVX-3P was developed with the same care and thoroughness as our other Vintage series instruments. A JX-3P was fully restored to factory spec, programmed by members of our sound design team and deeply multi-sampled, capturing samples both dry and with the built-in analog chorus enabled. Great care was taken to capture a wide range of the sonic capabilities of this synth, giving you 160+ presets in all.

The JX-3P was my 1st poly synth purchase back in Oct. '83. I paid $1,030 for it brand new, and although I own over 20 hardware synth now, I never exploited a synth for all it was worth as much as I did with my JX-3P. I think getting a well maintained JX-3P or MKS-30 is a better way to go… they're not that expensive.

And another iLok product that adds $50+ to the price if you don't have it. Nothing to see here....

Yawn...endless clones of vintage synths that had limited capabilities are a waste of time. Waiting for a virtual Monotron next...
