iPG-800 is a MIDI Controller iPad app emulating the functionality of the PG-800, PG-300, PG-200 and PG-1000 Synthesizer Programmers that were built by Roland.
It only works with a Roland JX-8P, MKS-70, JX-10 (with Colin Fraser OS or Fred Vecoven OS), Alpha Juno 1+2, MKS-50, HS-80, JX-3P with Organix or Kiwitechnics OS and D-50/D-550.
iPG-800 is a CoreMIDI app and connects to CoreMIDI compatible MIDI-Interfaces that support sysex like the iRig MIDI (e.g. Alesis IO Dock does not work) and to wireless MIDI Network sessions.
Note: No Parameterfeedback for JX-10 with Colin Fraser OS
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
Fixed Parameter Request Command and Midi channel setting in the D-50 mode. Thanks to John Conway for noticing this bug.
iPG-800 is fully compatible with the new Roland D-05. Doesn't support Vecoven V4 Version for the JX-10.
Ratings and Reviews
Super JX unleashed
Seems like everyone fell asleep on this for the last few years, but just stopping by to say that this little app is superb. I have the beasty MKS-70, and this little app makes sound creation very accessible.
… Let me ask this - could you possibly develop an MKS-80 app? I’d be the first in line.
Stop waiting and get this app!
If you want your jx-8p to come alive, this is a must have. App works perfectly as described. Thank you so much!
This is just what I've been looking for. To the Roland JX-8P users like me this app is a must have, expands your creativity over the fantastic sounds this vintage analog synth can produce. It works perfect and is even better than the original PG-800 (which is rare and can cost up to $500 on eBay) because of the fact that all the parameters get updated according with your tone selection on the actual JX-8P. The only thing I would improve on future updates would be the graphic design for the interface, so it looks more appealing and professional.
