This sample pack is the first of three in a series of packs featuring the Roland JX3P Synthesizer, released in 1983.
The first pack focuses on string and pad patches, as the Roland JX3P Synthesizer is well known for these types of sounds.
The four patches included have been multisampled directly from the synthesizer. The JX3P can produce 61 notes, starting at C3 (midi note 36) on up through C8 (midi note 96). Each note had been individually sampled for an extended period of time to capture the behaviour of the built-in chorus. Samples are labelled by patch name and midi note number. Each folder contains a full set of all the sounds the JX3P can make for that patch.
- String A Heavy chorused strings, built to stand up front
- String B Slightly mellower strings, built to sit in a mix
- Waster Pad Bright saw bassy pad, sci-fi classic
- Heavy Decay Dark filter sweep pad, instance space
