Any general tips for a new user

Postby jockmcplop » 21:57, 8 October 2016

I've just bought a JD XI and i'm loving it. It seems as though there's quite alot of digging around to do and alot of depth.
I was just wondering if anyone wanted to share any useful stuff they had learned to speed up the process of programming and sequencing. The kind of thing you wish someone had told you when you first got the synth :D
This is my first hardware synth and there's alot going on that's not particularly obvious so any hints would be great!
Thanks

Yes I know nobody reads manuals, but in this case I'd suggest that you read the manual first, then come back here with specific questions. The JD-Xi manuals (I mean the ones you can download as pdf from Roland, not just the paper manual included with the synth) are actually fairly comprehensive.

YouTube tutorials. Love them. I hate manuals, passion killers.

Would be great if it was publicly readable, unfortunately it's not visible to non-members of Facebook.

Just make sure that the parts of the tone you create have equal volume . I'll be trolling until I sell my Xi but must mention that playing (not while editing) with the Amp knob always set the parts of the tone to the same level.

Yeah, that's a problem for me.

Could someone kindly help? Can the Facebook group be made publicly visible? Or alternatively, could the best posts be shared here or somewhere else?

You should definitely try the free editor! It's not only useful: it also shows how powerful the JD-Xi sound engine actually, and it's also very helpful to understand how synthesis generally works.
