I have it with the pg-200 programmer and I love the sounds. The oscillators are really warm and I just love the noise wave it creates! I think this has the sound of it's own that can't be compared to other analogs.

The only drawbacks are that you can't use the programmer when the synth is receiving midi and there's no velocity.

The JX is a really good analog/digital synth. Some aren't impressed with it but remember it was released the same time as the Jupiter 6 and just after the Juno 6. This was a home oriented synth thats why it doesn't have knobs. You don't need the pg200, I made 1000 sounds on it and never touched the pg200. It has simple midi but Roland had a midi update for it which I recomend, though I doubt its available now. I used it in a full midi studio for 15 years and it was very usefull and fun. People have to remember that at the time(1983) this was one of Rolands cheapest synths and featured 2 DCO's per voice plus a sequencer, midi, memory, backup. I liked it anyways....

a great synth with a lot of program possibilities. it takes 2 days to get the hang of it, but when u do it's a great synth that you can get for a low price. don't pay more than 300us dollar. of 700 gulden. TRY TO GET THE PROGRAMMER IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE

The JX-3P must be the best all around analog synth for the money. I just bought one for $150, and I could'nt be more pleased. I don't have the PG-200 Programer, and I was a little worried at first (based on some of the reviews here), but I'm glad now that I did'nt spend the extra $100-$200. The PG-200 is basically useless. This synth could'nt be any easier to program on it's own . I'm not just saying that. Don't be skeptical of the buttons. The layout is so simple. It has a slider. The only thing you can't do is adjust two different values at the same time. big deal. You can't use the PG-200 while using any Midi functions, but you can edit from the board while using Midi. A Juno 106, of course, is a better synth with much better Midi implementation, but you're gonna pay at least $400. You could almost get 3 JX-3Ps for the price of one Juno. Don't fall for it.
