Roland Super JX-10 synthesizer (Wrightish)

Posted on 03/04/2014 by ozzy in Wrightish

Richard Wright used the Roland Super JX-10 synthesizer at the beginning of the "second comming" of Pink Floyd in the late 1980s. Between 1986 and 1989, band recorded Momentary Lapse of Reason, a very 80s sounding album that featured then modern Roland Super JX-10 synthesizer, and of course a reverbed drums that were more than typical for this period. As can be seen on the Venice footage, on the tour that followed the album, Richard Wright's rig consisted of the JX-10, Hammond organ and Kurzweil K2000 synthesizer. He used the JX-10 for Run Like Hell solo, which he originaly played on a Prophet-5.

Richard Wright | Roland Super JX-10

The Roland JX-10 (also known as the Roland Super JX) was a 12-voice digitaly controled analog synthesizer produced from 1986 to 1989. It was essentially two Roland JX-8P synthesizers put together, along with a 76-note velocity-sensitive keyboard with aftertouch. It also had features not found on the JX-8P, including a simple 1-track sequencer and a delay effect. Also, the chorus used in JX10 was not identical to JX8P, and the JX-10 also had a slightly different amplifier section as well as different electronic components.
