Roland JD-Xi Editor and Librarian

Patch Base has the best Roland JD-Xi editor and librarian available for Mac and iPad. Edit any parameter, organize patches, create random patches, and more.

Digital Tone Editor

The JD-Xi has 2 separate digital voices based on Roland's SuperNATURAL Technology. Each of these voices is made of 3 layers (partials). Patch Base makes it easy to edit them and see what's going on with each partial:

Analog Tone Editor

The Analog voice of the JD-Xi is simple but capable of very thick and warm sounds. In Patch Base you can see all of the settings on one screen, making it easy to get exactly the sound you want.

Drums Editor

Design your own custom drum kits with Patch Base's Drums Editor for the JD-Xi. Only the most dedicated menu divers would want to do this on the JD-Xi itself, but with Patch Base, it's simple. You can design 32 separate drum sounds per kit:

Program Editor

The Program is where all the parts of the JD-Xi come together. And Patch Base lets you use Programs in a way that you just can't do on the JD-Xi itself: any sound can be used in a Program. Even your own custom (user) sounds can be re-used across different Programs. Additionally:

Bank Editors

Patch Base gives you direct access to the Banks on the JD-Xi. Whereas the JD-Xi's controls only let you save Programs as entire sets of parts (2 Digital, Analog, Drums), Patch Base lets you save individual parts to any location in the banks that you want, making the JD-Xi more like a typical Roland synth. Programs act like Performances that can access any sound saved on the synth.
