Personally, I love the JX-3P. I paid only 150 dollars for it and it has proven me worthy. It is a very durable machine and previously mentioned has very awesome sounds. I enjoy writing the sounds yet it is difficult without the programmer. I really got excited about it when I found out about the hidden bank and the poly II mode.

well..well..well.. the roland JX-3P you ask? well.. its a great synth, sounding slightly like a SH-101/Juno series. once again without the PG200 its a pain in the arse to program new patches. the resonance is preety week but it has a great HPF on it. also, it has a trigger in, a must since if you switch to the midi bus you get no control with the PG200!!!! all and all the JX-3P is a jewel. if you like cycling acidic baselines, and im sure you do, you'll love the roland JX-3P (with the PG200 tweekout box...of course!).

Bought my baby while these thing were still sold over the counter.

Still got it and wont get rid of it .I was thinking of turfing it and figured

id take time out to program my jx10 to imatate my favourite patch of the jx3P

Well no go, the jx10 didnt have that dirty harmonic content that just rips

through the 3P.

(yea a dirty digital oscilator, and my unit had to warm up for stable pitch)

Now more than ever i appriciate the JX3P.

Some of its good points:

-Dual oscilators

-truly a hybrid sythn (part digital part analog)

-sync mode and ringmodulator

-HPF

-that sound

-step seq(at least you can triger it)

-there still cheap

Ive watched the prices on the second hand market go up &amp; down in price trends

secretly hoping they,d go super trendy!!! no luck yet.

SOME BAD POINTS:

-harder to program without PG200(though with practice can get quite slick)

-poor midi (the mks what ever is much better)

-not touch sensitive(no kidding)

-no after touch

-patch dump via taperecorder(it works though)

Roland have or had!! a mod they could do to JX3P that made them touch sensitve

and after touch as well as better midi specs(sorta bought it the up to the rack

version the MKS what ever)

Though im a bit shaky on the exact details.. On a personal level ive got some patchs that sound so big just holding one note

It blends well with other sythns and can also sound angry.And the strings, well.

and i got an accordian sound that if you close your eyes, your back in ol par'ee

just be on the volume knob, but easy ive had to replace mine volume pot three

times , not to mention cleaning under the keyboard contacts rubbers well thats it

I JUST GOT ONE OF THESE AND ITS A PRETTY GREAT INSTRUMENT.

IT MAKES REALY COOL FARTY BASS SOUNDS IF THATS WHAT YOU LIKE

(I DO). A LOT OF THE REVIEWS I READ SAID THAT ITS HARD TO

PROGRAM WITHOUT THE PROGRAMER DONT BELEIVE THE HYPE ALL YOU

HAVE TO DO IS LOOK AT THE EDIT MAP EVERYTHING ON THE LEFT SIDE

IS CONTROLLED BY THE OPTIONS ON THE A EDIT KET AND THE STUFF ON

THE RIGHT IS CONTROLLED BY THE B EDIT KEY. YOU CHANGE THE

PARAMETERS BY EITHER CHOOSIN A,B, OR C ON THE BANK BUTTONS OR

YOU USE THE SLIDER IN THE EDIT SECTION. I HOPE THIS IS A HELP.

I GOT MINE FOR $200 (THATS AMERICAN). SUCH A DEAL!!THE ONLY

THING ABOUT THIS SYNTH I DON'T LIKE IS THAT THE KEYS AREN'T

VELOCITY SENSITIVE:(
