Currently editing of the Analog Synth part, the two Digital Synth parts, the Drums part and the Effects of the JD-Xi is supported. It is designed to run on Microsoft Windows and on Linux.

Note for Apple Mac OS X Users:
Please don't ask me about a Mac OS X version of the JDXi Manager. I don't own a Mac and have no Mac programming experience so I'm unable to make a Mac version.
What you could do is try out the Windows version of the JDXi Manager on your Mac using Wine (https://www.winehq.org/). I have had some feedback from Mac owners who tried this and apparently it works fine except for occasional problems with sysex dumps ('Read from' and 'Dump to' and Preset Loading) which sometimes fail, but by retrying they eventually work.

Questions and Support:
If you have any questions or suggestions about the JDXi Manager please post them on the Roland Clan Forums in the thread dedicated to the JDXi Manager here. Alternatively you could also write an email to:

Release Notes and Changelog

Version 0.28 alpha (released 25/Nov/2018)
Please Note: The JDXi Manager window titlebar icon and toolbar icon on Windows can contain some pixels that appear corrupted if you have set the Windows zoom level to 125% or 175%. This is a purely cosmetic bug that doesn't affect functionality.
The Linux version has a new dependency (Perl-GD library) so please make sure you install that before running this release.

Version 0.26 alpha (released 19/Feb/2018)

Version 0.25 alpha (released 06/Feb/2018)
Please Note: the Effects editor has not been tested with JD-Xi firmware versions older than 1.5. In firmware 1.5 Roland added the Side Chain functionality to the Compressor effect which the Effects editor supports. If you use the Effects editor with older firmware, the Side Chain controls will not work.

Version 0.23 alpha (released 08/Apr/2017)

This version is dedicated to Ikutaro Kakehashi, the founder of Roland who recently passed away.
