Excerpt from the Orion-central review:

Eventually it comes down to sound. And the JX10 doesn't look real good, but it certainly sounds great. Until I stumbled upon this little gem I thought only a commercial synth like the Pro52 was capable of such a broad spectrum of sounds. As with the Pro52, the filter is so incredible smooth that it's very close to the fatness of a real (hardware) analogue synth. The fact that I'm holding the JX10 against the Pro52 (which is the best VSTi recreation of an analogue synth to my opinion) should give you an impression on how good the JX10 actually sounds. In short: I'm impressed.

The best free analog sounding VST ever.

Inspired from the Roland JX-10, this plugin has no GUI (it uses the GUI of your DAW), but... what an amazing sound!!!

For more information about this astounding plugin, here is below in italics an extract of the description from the original page (before he's gone to Sourceforge where he has upgraded all his old plugins, then ported them to 64-bits... and added some new plugins that are not yet in the KVR Database):

"The plug-in is designed for high quality (lower aliasing than most soft synths) and low processor usage - this means that some features that would increase CPU load have been left out!

Additional patch design by Stefan Andersson and Zeitfraktur, Sascha Kujawa.

Please note that the mda JX10 is not related to the JX series of synths available from JXPlugins.

When Vibrato is set to PWM, the two oscillators are phase-locked and will produce a square wave if set to the same pitch. Pitch modulation of one oscillator then causes Pulse Width Modulation. (pitch modulation of both oscillators for vibrato is still available from the modulation wheel). Unlike other synths, in PWM mode the oscillators can still be detuned to give a wider range of PWM effects."
