Roland PG-800

“This is needed for quick and easy editing of the JX-8p, MKS-70 and JX-10 synthesizers. It offers complete control of all parameters in an easy to use traditional slider controller. A must have since the JX-8p alone employs a tedious system of editing with only one slider. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland JX-8P with Roland PG-800

” The rather proud Roland JX8P synthesiser complete with PG800 programmer.

A great synth from the 80’s.
Velocity and aftertouch sensitive, 6-voice polyphonic, analogue machine.

The optional PG800 unit (included-with its original carry bag and connection cable) gives you full ‘twiddle’ ability.

All keys working (tested today!) etc etc.
In very good condition, just a minor few marks here and there as shown in the pics.

PG800 orig manual included but no JX (pdf’s available easily online), nor orig box.”

Roland MKS-70 with Roland PG-800

” Roland MKS-70 rackmount analog synthesizer with PG-800 controller, controller cable, M-64C cartridge, original owner’s manual, and sound chart.

This Super JX analog polysynth works perfectly and is in excellent condition! The MKS-70 is an amazingly versatile analog synth with a classic vintage sound. It’s capable of producing thick bass, pads, strings, keys, and many other sounds. The filter is outstanding.

The only known issue is that the volume fader for the PG-800 controller gives a slight bit of noise when being adjusted, but there is no noise once the volume is set.

This synth is a gem and I hate to let her go, but the pandemic has hit me hard and I need rent money.”

Roland JX-8P with Roland PG-800 Programmer

“Classic 61 note synth/editor combination from 1984. Comes as a pair – will not split. Both are very much in original condition, with a few slight cosmetic marks consistent with age. Includes original PG800 silver case and original 6 pin DIN cable which connects synth and programmer. Fully functional.

Some history with this actual synth. Among other recordings you can hear it on the 1987 Mory Kante album Akwaba Beach (includes the track”Yeke Yeke”), and the 1991 Gipsy Kings album “Este Mundo”, both of which I played the keys on – mainly pad, bass & string sounds” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Roland MKS-70 with Roland PG-800 Programmer

“This Roland MKS-70 is in good cosmetic and operational condition. It includes the original PG-800 programmer, umbilical cable, and power cable. About a year ago, I replaced the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply as well as one of the bridge rectifiers. It works as it should and I have never had a major problem with it. Sold as-is due to its age and delicate nature.”

Roland PG-800

“This PG-800 is in incredible shape. I own two of them and both are in similar condition. I got two just in case something happens to one but after using for a while I realized that as old as they are, they are like tanks and nothing will happen to them. I used the PG-1000 and now realized that these are much more reliable. Roland PG-800 Synthesizer Programmer For JX Synths Includes Case+Cable Perfect. Condition is Used.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Roland JX-8P with Roland PG-800 Programmer

“I purchased these units last year for a band project that ended up falling through. Since that time they’ve never been gigged with and have been used very little. I’m clearing out some unused gear, so they must go. The JX-8P does have some wear, which is to be expected for its age, but all in all it’s in fairly good shape. The keys work and the patch membrane buttons all function as well. The PG-800 programmer works great and looks like it just came from the factory. Neither of these items have given me any trouble while in my possession.

Included is a sturdy ATA case I had custom made soon after I purchased the synth. It comes with a strip of placer foam to help hold the synth secure during transit. Also included with the JX is a copy of the manual and a very handy preset sound chart magnet that goes on the front panel. The PG-800 comes with the data cable, original manual, and a nice Roland shoulder strap case. If you want a complete analog synthesizer package, this is it!!”

Roland JX-8P with Roland PG-800 Programmer

“Roland JX8P Vintage Polyphonic Synthesiser Digitally controlled Analogue. Condition is Used.

This is a uniqe collectors vintage Roland JX-8P originally owned by the 80s Rock Band “Bite the Bullet”. The synth comes with the memory card containing the sounds created by the band using the PG-800 controller, which is included in the sale and featured in their first album released in 1989. The PG-800 controller is an essential editing tool for the JX-8P and can also be used during live performance.
A copy of the CD “Bite the Bullet” is also included in the sale.
Don’t miss out on this unique and exiting opportunity to own one of the most iconic synthesizers of the 80s.
It is in good working order and recently serviced. As with much loved vintage equipment, it shows many battle scars and these are shown in the photos. I personally think it adds to the kudos of this fantatic synth.
Due to the vintage and value of this item, it is collection only and I may be willing to deliver within a reasonable distance & cost. We can discuss and agree this during the sale.”

Roland PG-800

“The PG-800 programmer is for the Roland JX-10, JX-8P and MKS-70 synthesizers. Includes original cable. It has been kept in the case for the most part except for when being used, which wasn’t often. The case is in excellent condition, no tears. I’m selling it because I havn’t used it in a long time, and no longer own my JX-10.”

Roland JX-8P with Roland PG-800 Programmer

“Excellent condition Roland JX8P synthesiser complete package including the PG800 Programmer in its original case, patch lead, M-16C Memory Card with MKS-30 Sample Sound, Roland sustain pedal, all manuals and plush lined flight case. Everything is in perfect working order having been looked after very well and I am only the second owner having bought it nearly new late 80’s. I am primarily playing acoustic pianos now so have now need for it anymore and haven’t used it for quite a while. It still sounds fantastic and all creative sounds can be arrived at in the digital mode. The top of the keyboard shows the digital filter map but having the programmer enables a smooth transition from creating in the digital mode to working in analogue. It’s like having your own moog. It has full midi capability (in, out, through), stereo and head phone outs together with Dynamics and After Touch functions and holds 96 patch programs (64 preset, 32 free + 32 more with the memory card). This truly is an impressive instrument package from piano sounds, electric dreams to “soundtrack” . The JX8P was used (and probably still is) by Blancmange, Bronski Beat, Kate Bush, The Cure, Go West, The Human League, Europe, Gary Numan, OMD etc. I am selling it as a complete set as it will be a great bonus to whoever buys it. I am based central UK in Northants and will only make it available for cash on collection. ”
