Studio Fun:Ever Wondered What a Jen SX1000 Sounds Like?

Look no further      05/06/07
Another find on Youtube, Musician ">http://www.youtube.com/user/alphacode909>alphacode909 was keen to show off his new jen SX1000 which he’s modded – not too clear whether the modifications go any further than the wooden end panels. I was surprised at the low end - I must confess, I’ve never had any experience of the Jen but it sounds plenty full-some to me. Also features some supersonic high end effects, so watch your ears.

The SX was a great sounding little synth let down by its lack of external control abilities as far as I can remember from using one which is a shame. No CV/Gate so you couldn't sequence with it. Nice chunky controls though...

Back in the day when analogues were first becoming highly valued again, the Jen SX1000 was considered a pile of junk! If it's becoming well regarded then I'd guess it's simply because all the really interesting analogues are now either unavailable or commanding prohibitive prices.

The Jen SX1000's 15 minutes of fame was when Altern8 used to use 2 of these on all their PA's back in the early 90's. They had a big cutout A and 8 attached to keyboard stands. They used to wear chemical warfare suits and dust masks with an A and 8 on them and comically smack the keys on their SX1000's which were never plugged into anything.

Dont be fooled the Jen SX always did and always will sound like a "fly in a tin" a measly single DCO.....weedy feeble monosynth....only redeeming feature was you could nick the coloured knobs for replacing missing ones on EMS gear.
