Roland Cloud’s JX-3P is an authentic emulation of the iconic JX-3P hardware Synthesizer using the latest ACB technology!

After Roland had already delivered the JX-3P as a plug-out Synthesizer for the System-8 in the summer, it was only a matter of time that this ACB based recreation also comes as a plugin. Today, it’s finally the day! Roland Cloud has announced that the JX-3P is now available through their subscription service. The plugin version comes also with a all-new effect modules that enables the creation of new sounds not possible with the vintage Synth.

I’m still not a fan of the Roland Cloud due of the price but nonetheless, it’s good to see that they still bring new plugins out. Hopefully one day also als standard purchase, please Roland!
