Roland JX-305 GrooveSynth

Roland JX-305 Image

The JX-305 is an awesome synth for electronic & techno musicians! It's like an MC-505 groovebox in a keyboard. All of the MC-505's excellent dance-oriented sounds are included, as well as 4MB more! Combining keyboard style patch synthesis & performance with Groove Approved dance patterns, sequences and phrases the JX-305 is a real dance production studio with 768 dance patterns, 256 User, 640 patches and 28 drum kits.

Perfect for live use with its massive 64 voices of polyphony, you can jam along with it while it's instantly playing a great techno/dance groove! Then grab anyone of the 9 real-time control knobs to start tweaking the filter, envelope, tempo, arpeggiator or LFO. All real-time edits, pattern changes, tweaks and keyboard playing can be recorded into its 8-track sequencer - a robust sequencer with quantizing and edit capabilities! If your bag is dance, trance and rave then this Groovesynth may be all you need! It has been used by Astral.

Can anyone help with a video on opening this up to use the hot iron trick to fix the display. It would be a huge help.

This was a good synth for me at the time but now i only use it as a Midi Controller using Ableton. Does anyone know how much would get for it if i sold it. Seems a shame just to use it as a controller. Might as well sell it to someone who would put it to good use.

It is the sound set from the MC505 NOT the MC303. This is a keyboard version of the 505.
