The Roland JD-Xi Synthesizer and Ableton DAW Music Production Platform is a B&H Kit that combines the sounds of an analog/digital hybrid synthesizer with the digital workstation universe. While the analog process produces unique sounds that are often referred to as organic and smooth, the digital process can go to places and manipulate audio that analog can never do. This kit doesn't argue for or against either, but pairs the two for a harmonious outcome. A keyboard bag is included for ease of transportation.

  • Roland JD-Xi Analog/Digital Synthesizer (Black)

    Featuring analog and digital sound engines and a compact footprint, the black 37 mini key JD-Xi from Roland is designed to deliver fat, warm analog bass and lead tones with controls for hands-on tweaking, plus polyphonic digital sounds like pads, strings, brass, and more.

    The JD-Xi also allows you to create loops with a built-in four-track pattern sequencer and built-in drum kits, and also create vocal textures with the included gooseneck mic and on-board vocoder, and AutoPitch.

    • Interactive crossover synthesizer with analog and digital sound engines
    • Analog synth section provides authentic lead and bass tones
    • Two digital synth sections with SuperNATURAL synth tones and 129-voice total polyphony
    • Four-track pattern sequencer and high-quality rhythm sounds
    • Included gooseneck mic for use with built-in Vocoder and AutoPitch
    • Process sounds with four simultaneous effects (Effect 1/2, Delay, Reverb)
    • USB for audio/MIDI communication with computer music software
    • Includes a large selection of ready-to-play sounds and patterns
    • Additional sounds and patterns available for download at Roland’s Axial sound library site

  • Ableton Live 9 Standard - Music Production Software (Boxed)

    Live 9 Standard from Ableton is a solid update to the company's "think different" DAW software that is particularly popular with electronic and beat making creators. Two GUI views include a traditional, vertical-track display with time moving from left to right (Arrangement View), while the Session View is a place for experimentation that provides room for improvising, playing and performing with musical ideas without the constraints of the timeline. Live 9 Standard comes with 3 instruments, 38 effects, and over 1,000 production-ready sounds. 

    Aside from the particular way of presenting the creative process, the software also includes standard features such as unlimited multi-track recording with up to 32-bit/192 kHz resolution with nondestructive editing and unlimited undo. Essential automatic plug-in delay compensation is available, along with multiple automation lanes and track freezing for conserving DSP. Warping and real-time, time-stretch processing can be applied to any clips, and unlimited instruments, audio effects and MIDI effects can be utilized per project.

    MIDI sequencing, remote control instant mapping, and MIDI output to hardware MIDI devices allows the software to play a central role in any studio situation. New in Live 9 is an audio-to-MIDI functionality that can extract musical ideas from samples, or convert drum-breaks with the Drums-to-MIDI feature and reuse them with custom sounds. MIDI clock synchronization and ReWire ensures that the software functions with external hardware and software.

    The software supports multi-core and multiprocessor computer configurations, and includes support for WAV, AIFF, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC file formats. The software functions under both Mac and Windows operating systems.

    What's New in Ableton 9.7

    • New Slicing Options: Chop samples by beat divisions or regions, as well as manually or by transients (a new Simpler feature that also works without Push)
    • New Drum Layout: 16 set velocity levels for playing and programming more dynamic beats
    • Hands-On Audio Routing: Select and record ins and outs directly from Push for sampling internal or external audio without disrupting your flow
    • Visual Feedback for Tighter Recordings: New display info shows clip phase and count-in so you can start and finish clip recordings more accurately
    • Hands-On Color Customization: Color pads, tracks and clips using Push to make your live performance easier
    • Better Playability: Pad sensitivity adapts to what you play, whether it’s drums or sustained chords
    • Better Sampling with Simpler: Simpler has been completely overhauled with a new interface, warping, slicing, and new analog-modeled filters built in conjunction with Cytomic. Slice samples across the keyboard, play single hits, or warp long samples so that they always stay in time with your song
    • Improved waveforms and coloring: New waveforms show more detail and zoom and scroll smoothly. To help keep your Sets organized, new clips take their track’s color, and tracks are now automatically colored by default
    • Peak and RMS Meters: Updated meters show both peak and RMS, to indicate both sudden changes in level as well as perceived loudness. This makes it easier to control the dynamics of both individual tracks and your overall mix
    • Analog-Modeled Filters: Based on classic vintage hardware models that will self-resonate, feedback, and distort beautifully. These filters were built in collaboration with Cytomic and are included in Simpler, Sampler, Operator, and Auto Filter
    • More Sounds, Samples, and Drums: The library of included sounds has been updated to get you making music even faster. This includes new drum kits, presets using the new analog-modeled filters, hundreds more one shots, and new audio clips
    • Play in Time with Link: Jam with Live and a growing collection of other music applications. Link is a new technology that keeps you in time over a wireless network
