Roland MKS-70 Super JX
The MKS-70 is an identical rackmount version of the JX-10 synthesizer. Released in 1986 it combines two individual JX-8P synth engines for an outstanding warm and analog sound which is used in many modern studios all over the world. It comes with onboard effects like Chorus and Delay and offers a wider range of programming using the optional PG-800 Programmer. This programmer is highly recommended for those who will be programming unique sounds since editing from the rack-face itself is cumbersome and tedious. The MKS-70 has a "chase-play" function which allows programmable delayed repeats of voices from either of its tone modules. The chorus is either off, slow or fast. It is used by Überzone, Vangelis, Astral Projection and Josh Wink.
