Superluminal represents a collection of Roland JD-990 patches that showcase my journey programming this awesome synth. From the cosmic interlude of the patch “Superluminal” to some seriously epic pads such as “Vista Grande”, the JD still has what it takes in 2020!

Sometimes I have to remind myself that its existence pre-dates 1993, with the slider infested JD-800 from 1991 and the D-50 from 1987! There are too many stand out sounds but here are few of my favourites:

  • Alpha Centauri – beautifully intimate pad
  • Analog roots – so thick and wide
  • JD-8000 – supersaws before supersaws were a thing
  • Balearic Haze – Crystal sharp strings
  • Tawny Dawn – ethereal sweeps lasting an eternity
  • Maasive Moog – where’s that Taurus again?

I won’t pretend to be the first to praise this synthesizer, as I know I’m walking in the footsteps of great sound designers, but in my own way I hope to contribute to the JD’s legacy. The Roland JD-990 is a timeless classic with hidden depths to it even decades later.

One of the true great digital synthesisers.
