The JX-3P was my first synth. I learned to use it really really fast. Awesome phatty sounds. after listening to so many other synthesizers i can only determine this: it has a very unique sound, a sound of its own, cannot be generated by any other (based on what i heard). Very paddy, and can be very shreddy, heck it can be quite a bit of things. I learned how to get it to be a midi channel 1 machine through sonic state or something and i use my korg to control it with the sequencer and i've used it for a background pad on a new-age song that i made and it sounds BEAUTIFUL. I also have its big brother the jx-8p i'll say they both sound different from each other by nearly a mile. But both are paddy and shreddy. Do some research guys! Learn as much as you can about this synth cause this machine is a big surprise in a small package.

Midi a part-time user from USA writes:
There was a ROM update to the JX3P which gave it extra MIDI features when powered up while holding down the '7' button i believe... The keyboard did'nt work in this mode but it let the unit respond to MIDI Velocity information and omni-off mode when played by another MIDI controller... U might contact rolandus.com to see if they have any left..

I paid the equivalent to Us$ 200 on mine, mint condition but no pg-200. For that kind of money, it's a terrific synth. Its only real drawback, in my opinion, is the poor midi implementation. I would have liked it to send midi messages from the controllers, so that I could use it to play my soft synths and tweak them in real-time, as I suppose you can do with the Juno 106 and its knobs and sliders. No velocity, but why would you need it in a synthesizer? It's not a bloody piano, so it was obviously not built to feel and respond like one. You'll use this machine to creat unusual, out-of-this-earth sounds. I played it through a guitar fx pedal, with some distortion and delay on. I cranked up the resonance in the jx-3p and it produced a great acid sound which only the most anal conoisseurs could tell it's not a 303.

This is my first analog synth, so I can't tell how it fares against other pieces of gear. What I can say is that it sounds great, at least compared with the software synths I've played (VAZ, Reaktor, Reality), and it's easy to use even without the pg-200 if you've already got some experience programming synths. Plus, you won't have to sell your ass to buy one of these. In this price range it can't be beat, but if you're willing to spend a few bucks more, go for a Juno 106 if you can find one.

Woohoo! Just got me an own JX-3P! =) For the low-low price of... $50! =P The synth is in VERY good condition, allthough the 8 first leds don't work on the "sequencer" thingie.. But I'll open her up and give her a go with the welder. =) Only real cons is that it is without it's mate, the PG-200 and that it doesn't respond to velocity.. Allthough it SHOULD according to the info here on sonicstate.. Anyone who knows?!? Also!! -->>ANYONE have URL's to INFO and such about this monstermachine? like manual and extra things that can be patched with it?<<--

this synth is absolutely awesome and well worth every penny! though I don't have the pg200, my cat can even program cool sounds! It would probably have ended up more sought after but due to lack of knobs, sliders,wood sides and cool name, could've called It neptune! this one gets overlooked! great for us people on a budget who live in areas where pawn-shops and music stores are swept clean of anything analog.and those who can't compete with the ebay yuppies who'll pay $700 for a moog radioshack!I have a dead one! I paid $150 for the jx3p in flawless condition and the amount of sounds It is capable of is amazing! I can do anything from a science documetry to who's the boss cheezy eighties(my favorite decade)the presets aren't great but are fun and highly tweakable to perfection. Anyone from beginer to pro can find a sound that is phat! and for the price I have no choice but to give It a five! I own a dx-7 which is harder to program and more expensive and It can't touch the warmth of this synth If you see a jx3p under 200 bucks they are quite worth It and It would be foolish not to buy! And if you're on abudget(me) It is simply A must for you!
