Super JX Sample Collection

2013-06-15   When we talk about polyphonic analog synthesizers, some recurring words like 'warm' come to mind, but only a few synths can effectively give this feeling.

A couple of Super JX sounds have been published some months ago in our download zone for free, but after persistent requests from our friends, we decided to dedicate a whole sample library (in "nsmp" format) to this mid 80s inimitable beauty.
