In 1983, Roland introduced one of the first affordable analog synths, the JX-3P. The JX-3P signaled a shift away from control dense synths like the JUNO and JUPITER series aimed at players who wanted the Roland sound without being distracted by a slew of controls. The JX-3P offered many of the same components as its more expensive siblings and was used by many well known pop acts such as Stevie Nicks, Vince Clark and The Cure as well as electronica pioneers Orbital and The Future Sound of London.
UVX-3P was developed with the same care and thoroughness as other UVI Vintage series instruments. A JX-3P was fully restored to factory spec, programmed by members of UVI sound design team and deeply multi-sampled, capturing samples both dry and with the built-in analog chorus enabled. Great care was taken to capture a wide range of the sonic capabilities of this synth, giving you 160+ presets in all.
Price: $99. UVX-3P is currently available for the special introductory price of $79. It is compatible with all Windows and Mac OS X DAWs via the free UVI Workstation(2.0.9+). It also loads in the full-featured MOTU MachFive 3 sampler. iLok required.
