Launched in 1985, the innovative JX-8P took analog a step further with capabilities that could generate tones associated with digital synthesizers, making it highly versatile. With the JX-8P Model Expansion, we reintroduce the unique voice of this sought-after classic for the first time ever. The hands-on editing functions of the companion PG-800 programmer are also included, thoughtfully integrated into the user interface.
