Reimagine the iconic JD-800 synth with advanced modeling and intuitive design.

The Roland JD-800 Model Expansion brings the iconic '90s synthesizer into the modern era. Combining original waveforms and advanced modeling, this expansion pack lets you craft electronic sounds with vintage warmth and character. Its intuitive interface gives you hands-on control over a wide range of parameters for shaping tone. Whether you're looking to recreate classic '90s electronica or forge a fresh sound, the JD-800 Model Expansion puts legendary synth power at your fingertips.

Authentic Recreation of a Digital Icon

In 1991, the JD-800 changed the synthesizer landscape with its massive control panel and electronic character. The JD-800 Model Expansion uses the original waveforms and architecture to capture the sonic behavior of this influential instrument. You'll have 64 presets ported directly from the hardware, plus 64 new presets designed by top sound designers. Tweak the familiar controls to conjure your own new sounds with rich textures and complex timbres.

Powerful Sound-Shaping Tools

The JD-800 was renowned for its deep synthesis engine and multi-effects section. The Model Expansion gives you the same tools to craft your tone. Adjust parameters for two digital oscillators and a noise generator, then route the signals through resonant filters and envelope modifiers. You have over 90 multi-effects at your disposal, including classic Roland effects like the JUNO chorus, SDD-320 Dimension D and SBF-325 flanger. With this massive toolset, you can achieve everything from subtle enhancements to radical transformations of your sound.

Optimized for Modern Workflows

While the JD-800 Model Expansion conjures the vibe of a vintage synth, it's designed for today's production needs. When used with ZENOLOGY, the intuitive interface, efficient CPU usage and touch-friendly controls let you work quickly without creative barriers. You can also easily swap Model Expansions to change sounds on the fly. If you have compatible ZEN-Core gear from Roland, your favorite JD-800 sounds can follow you anywhere for music making on the move.
