By the early ’90s, preset-driven digital synths with limited hands-on controls dominated the landscape. The JD-800 changed all that in 1991, bringing the synthesizer world back to its roots with a massive control-laden panel and an aggressively electronic sound palette. Combining the original JD-800 waveforms with advanced modelling techniques, the JD-800 Model Expansion brings the gleaming tone and monster sound-shaping potential of this vintage digital icon to your DAW and compatible Roland hardware.
