Looks like a toy, but looks are absolutely deceiving.
Jay-Em, 27.09.2018
This itty-bitty little keyboard looks like something that You?d give a child to learn a bit of music.

However..

This small-form keyboard is a full-fledged 4-part Synth+ Rythm-machine!

It is ab-so-lutely amazing how much functionality Roland crammed in it petite housing. 3 full-on Integra like synths, 1 analog monophonic synth with sub-occillator with a bunch of creamy filters, ànd.. as cherry on the pie, about EVERY classic Roland drumcomputer as samples (that can be filtered and mauled to Your heart?s content..in real-time..) Just because ?they could?

Only disadvantage are the tiiiny keys (with velocity sensitivity !) but, attach a Midi-keyboard with full-sized keys, and it starts to réally shine.

Important: Download the latest patches and firmware. It adds much broader functionality to the sequencer and drums.

Be aware, though. The thing is completely geared towards Dance in all it?s iterations with basses and drums that make Your woofers cry for mercy and tweeters scream in agony. No violins, or endless saxes, guitars or classical organs, just very useful ( fully editable) sounds for about any type of dance/hardcore( a great overdrive, fuzz and digitizer on-board) LOVE it!
Combined with a very comprehensible sequencer, You?ll make Your hard-house or your Wub-wub track in no-time short. But it also excels at weird swooshy, dreamy ambient stuff.

For this price a no-brainer for anyone dabbling in modern dance-styles.

A workstation
Carlos Lteitao, 09.03.2019
If you have a homestudio or play the guitar and need a small synth this is your choice. It's a full workstation, small and powerfull. If you plug your guitar on it you can get some really crazy sounds, with fuzz + flanger + stereo delay + reverb. The sounds are Roland basic modern collection, but tons of them. It's not a keyboard for someone who wants a crystal clear piano or clarinet though. It's for jam in an electro mood.

Super Happy.
New to Music., 19.02.2020
I am new to music and I love this Synth I am having great fun using it learning what it can do it has made me very happy I choose this Roland Synth, and the fun i am having with the Mic, I am very happy I went with this synth when there was a few others I was going to buy. Allot of fun is one box. with the drums, mic and analogue part and 2 digital parts it makes helps you create something very easy. I can't wait until I really know how to use it as this is giving me hours of play time and i only got it.

Perfect except the lack of SuperNatural acoustic tones
17.01.2017
I bought this in hopes that along with the analog part, which sounds awesome by the way, I will benefit from some nice SuperNatural acoustic instruments such as woodwinds, trumpets, more pianos, guitars. To my dissapointment most of the SuperNatural tones are synth emulations. It only has about 2 FM type pianos, 1 or 2 electric pianos, only one grand piano, 2 guitars. No woodwinds, ethnic instruments or more FM type sounds. As for the ones that are present, they just don't sound that good. You're better off going for a Yamaha MX or some old Roland rompler. The sad conclusion on my part is that the JD-Xi is a Dance Music oriented synthesizer, with a lot of EDM style patches and waveforms, a lot of Analogue emulations.

I have to give it props for the analogue part, which sounds
way expected (the filter is very smooth, the OSCs have a really pleasant sound) and for the Drum Part which is jam packed with acoustic drums, vintage drum machine drums, hits and FX which do sound good. The sequencer is also a big plus but I didn't really buy the JD-Xi for sequencing. Some people say it's a good sketchpad. I wanted it to be more than that.
