I've just got myself a JD-XA although I've not had it long I'm quite impressed with it so far, I know there are somethings that other folks have suggested roland update, but ain't that always the case these days, anyways was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on whether jarre might have consider this to be one to play with, after all he has had a fair few rolands over the years and this one allows you you to mix analog with digital.

> ROLAND SH-101
are the instruments he used on the album, what could have used for doing it?
In 1989-90 I remember to have heard almost the same sound coming from the Waldorf Microwave 1: I was in a music instruments store, but it wasn't me playing the synth in that moment... but that sound just impressed in my memory.
Never had a Microwave in my hands again, so I don't know how it was done (could be a wavetable trick beside analog filter manipulation?)
Please, any suggestion on what kind of synth is best to try and on what parameters work most for obtaining the same power of the snap?
Thank you in advance.
If its the sound I think you are on about I have a wav file that I downloaded from another site http://jarrologmusic.free.fr/patchs/listing.php its under the d-50 section as noiseshot.wav apparently its was from F. Rimbert distributed by bank Keyboards I think its the one but in the track it has some delay and other effects, I'm currently working on a cover of Calypso II so have been experimenting with this sound. See what you think
