New patches for Roland JX-8P !

Post by D-Collector » Tue Sep 08, 2009 2:04 am

Here is a little gift from me to all of you JX-8P owners. A full patchbank with original sounds created by me over a long time. They should work in the Super JX-10 too. There is a little old program included called CpJX which acts as librarian and sysex sender/receiver (works great with all windows versions). I think there are one or two nice sounds in here, and I hope you like it. :wink:

Thank you very much, it's interesting to hear what patches other people make with this great synth.
There are some good ones, the "Blade Run" Patch is very nice.

Hi D-collector,
Any chance at sending screen shots of the patches? I'm one of the few people that had never bothered getting a midi interface to download sysex. I'd love to use some of these sounds.

What do you mean screenshots? How would I do that in a hardware synth from 1984? :lol:

I thought you were using one of those "virtual" PG800's on a computer to program your JX. Figured you could capture screenshots of the parameters. Sorry.

No need to apoligize. I programmed all the patches from the front panel as I do with all my gear. I don't use the PC for anything other than recording. I tried the DOS virtual programmer once, it works fine but I hate staring at screens and using a mouse when I can do it just as fast directly on the JX.

Why don't you get yourself a cheap M-audio Uno USB-midi cable? It works great with the JX-8P and the included sysex program in my upload.
Did you use some of my patches in those clips? I didn't recognize any..
But cool use of the JX though!

Get the editor, import the sysex, look at the screen, rebuild patches. No USB MIDI interface required.

Thank you D-Collector! Now, does anybody have sysex files of the original Eric Persing programmed factory presets as listed here?
