The PG-800 Mini is a compact controller for the Roland JX-8P, Super JX, and MKS-70 synthesizers. The PG-800 Mini can be mounted into any JX-8P or JX-10P, and made an integral part of the synth’s front panel. This kit includes one fully built and tested PG-800 MINI, a graphic overlay, all mounting hardware, and a connector cable. Kit includes a drill template for mounting the PG-800 MINI inside of a Super JX or JX-8P synthesizer. This kit should be installed by experienced hobbyists and professionals. The PG-800 Mini has all of the functions of the original PG-800, plus some new features. The PG-800 mini will work with all JX8P and Super JX synthesizers. The controller is also compatible with Super JX synths which have the Vecoven upgrades. The Mini can now also operate in Vecoven 4. X mode, which adds a Page 2 button, giving hands on control over all of the 40 extra tone parameters in Vecoven 4. X firmware, plus UPPER/LOWER BAL, and aftertouch parameters for VCF, VCA, and vibrato. PG-800 Mini controls 92 parameters on a Vecoven upgraded Super JX. The PG-800 Mini features some useful functions that the original PG-800 did not have. Mute Transmission – Turns off PG-800 Mini transmission until MANUAL is pressed. Great for performances where an inadvertent touch of a knob could alter a patch. “Scratch patch” generator – Tapping a button will generate a basic scratch program, which serves as a useful starting point when creating a new tone. Random patch generator – Holding a button down will generate a random tone. This is a fun way to discover new sounds from the JX. Copy & paste – Copy the current state of the knobs on the PG-800 Mini to save your ideas or easily transfer a tone to another program. Page 2 – Booting up in Vecoven 4. X mode will turn the WRITE button into a Page 2 function. All 40 extra tone parameters can be controlled using this function. Parameters include all PWM, LFO2, ENV1-4, LFO sync, upper/lower balance, aftertouch vibrato amount, aftertouch VCF amount, and aftertouch volume amount. A total of 88 parameters can be controlled with the PG-800 Mini and a Vecoven upgraded JX. Page 2 function chart is shown below. Firmware updates will be made available if and when new features are added to the software.
