Great synth, simple to use, simple design and a good thing as there is no U/I. In return you get very low resouce use.

The sound has a Roland early 80's timbre although preset programs give a hint at how much can be done with this free synth.

Pros: low resources, great sound, good editing capabilities, it's free
Cons: no interface

If they made an interface I'd pay for it providing it wasn't unreasonably priced. You can't be hurt trying the JX10 so do so and have fun with a good synth.

My score was a bit uneven but if given an overall number by my standards this would be a solid 8.

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."
