i got my jx back in 85 and have never given up on it. it is a very cool synth

AND I PROGRAMMED IT FOR YEARS WITHOUT THE EXTERNAL PROGRAMMER - not hard at all. You can use the sequencer for very cool fx..... yes - the presets suck.... the main reason i'm writing this is to let folk know THAT THERE'S A ROM UPGRADE AVAILABLE

FROM ROLAND TO MAKE IT VELOCITY SENSITIVE. Regardless of your style of music, get one - unless all you want is a synth to do is emulate

acoustic instruments.

I just wanna say that this is a really great synth. Perf to use in the making of ambient noises and harmonies. I¨ve had this synth for about a year, and I løve it!!MmM !!!. the sequencer is lovly a small effect of its own.. and the prg. is easy to use with alot of nice knobs and zmm buttons.

the only thing must bee that the pitch cntr. cant be used while the seq. is runnin.and there is only 1 midi channel(couldnt botter me though bec. is G R E A T to use as a background feelin noise maker machine)

---overall its a great allround synt with greath base,mid,high sounds!!!!

I really like the sound of it, but I can't help myself from wanting to tinker

a bit with it. First of all, I'll modify the chorus circuitry to try to reduce

the noise it creates. Next, I'll either build a PG200 equivalent from the

original schematics, or possibly a SysEx version (or for that matter, add

an extra microcontroller into it directly, so I can tweak it through midi.

Has anyone done any mods like these??

i just picked one up for $75 bucks! with out the programmer. I have only used it for a week. The chorus is so dirty I cant even use it, but it makes strange and awesome sounds. It is very cool for the creative musician. The midi section is not the best but it sure beats the groove box......that is probably the worst toy ever made by roland *and now they have a 'bigger toy'-mc505*ooh hold me down, i want that.... The programming on this baby, is difficult...no knobs!!.....but if you have any of the junos you'll get it quick..... Always check your local pawn shop for lurking synths....they are all around us............................... (i gave it a 2/5 unless you have the pg..-3/5) peace

I bought mine ($200) in the classifieds of the newspaper which thinking about it now is unbelievable, because its so old. I don't have the programmer, but doesn't matter the edit map is on the right. I've been able to make some great low basses and even drum sounds. All you have to do is play around with the sounds and you'll get there.
