Regular price $365.00 $320.00 Sale

 MPG-8 is an affordable, compact controller for Roland JX-8P, MKS-70, and Super JX synthesizers.  This unit will be replacing the PG-800 Mini Desktop module.  The feature set is the same as that of the mini, but MPG-8 is built with a metal enclosure, and includes LED indicators for power and page 2 (Vecoven) functions)  The case is constructed using heavy-duty powder coated metal, and it sits atop any desktop surface or the synth itself using 4 non-slip rubber feet.

MPG-8 uses the 6-pin DIN cable included with the unit to communicate to the JX, and to receive power from the synth.  

MPG-8 has all of the features of the original PG-800, plus more.  MPG-8 can be configured to boot in "Vecoven mode" which will allow users to control the extra parameters added by the Vecoven 4.x/PWM modification.  Features include:

Manual mode - transmits current position of all knobs to the synth

Scratch Patch Generator - sets up a generic starter tone

Vecoven/Page 2 mode - allows users to access all Vecoven parameters

Randomizer - Randomizes all JX parameters

 

Units will begin shipping in late October/early November.  Pre-orders will receive a discounted price of $320 per unit.  Pre-orders will ship as soon as the MPG-8 production finishes.
