Synth Glossary

A filter filters out certain frequencies in the sound. There are four main types: a low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and notch, which are covered elseware in the glossary. Filters have two controls - the frequency control selects at which frequency the filter should start operating and the resonance control creates a peak just before the bit where it starts filtering out frequencies. This is used to create acid-type sounds....


The JX-8P is a 6-voice, 12-DCO, programmable analog synthesizer with a touch-sensitive and pressure-sensitive 5- octave, 61-note (C-C) keyboard. It is a direct descendant of Roland's first non-knob-and-slider synth, the JX-3P. Each voice contains two DCOs, one VCF, and a single ADSR for the VCF and/or the VCA, which can be inverted. Since it has only a few sliders and knobs, the PG-800 programmer facilitates quick editing and access to all editing parameters (it is also used with the MKS-70 and the JX-10).
