Overview

The Roland JX-03 Boutique module continues the legacy of the JX-3P synth. For those old enough to remember it, the JX-3P was part of a big revolution in affordable synthesizers. The original model was launched when button-driven interfaces were popular, so it was designed to give immediate access to preset sounds. It was highly programmable, especially when used with the optional PG-200 controller that added 24 rotary knobs for instant sonic sculpting. The limited edition 4-voice JX-03 Boutique inherits all 24 knobs from the PG-200 as well as the distinctive JX tonal character. Roland has also added some extras not present in the JX-3P including new waveforms, expanded DCO range and cross modulation options. You can even slide the JX-03 Boutique into the optional K-25m keyboard unit for a self-contained, go-anywhere synth experience.

The JX-3P developed a loyal following for its lush analog synth string patches, punchy bass timbres and sizzling leads. Everything the JX-3P and its accompanying programming module had and more is packed into this slim design.

*NOTE: The JX-03 Boutique is pictured above with the optional K-25m keyboard unit, which must be purchased separately if you want to use the JX-03 Boutique as a self-contained syntheszier. Please see #J26980 to purchase this add-on.

Comments about Roland JX-03 Boutique Sound Module:

This is an excellent portable synth at a decent price, great as a first or spare synth or MIDI keyboard controller. It has both USB and DIN MIDI connectors (hard to find together), great controls (though physically small), 2 oscillators and can be plugged into the Roland KM-25 keyboard, as I easily did. The user manual is a folded-up, multi-lingual thin sheet of paper in tiny print, sparse on information with no quick-start guide or tutorial, so it's learn-as-you-go. My JX-03 was not completely compatible with my Behringer UMX490 keyboard controller, confirmed by both Berhriger (Music Group) and Roland. Roland email support was just adequate. I couldn't get through to phone support.

    I use the JD-XA with the JP-08 and JX-03 MIDI connected. Gives some really sweet sounds. Easy to connect and use. Easy to blend the sounds and get some really great effects.

    Comments about Roland JX-03 Boutique Sound Module:

    Great portable 4-note polyphonic synth at a decent price, good for entry level introduction to synths as well as for performance. Has both USB MIDI and MIDI DIN in/out connections, a difficult combination to find. I would have given this a higher rating had the manual and Roland phone support been better (could not get through by phone) and this had worked properly with my Behringer UMX490 keyboard controller (both Roland and Behringer confirmed it could not). You might also want to consider the JP-08 for $100 more. Note: you can chain multiple like units together (e.g. JX-03 to JX-03) to increase polyphony when connected to a keyboard controller. Visit Roland's web site for more information and sound samples.
