God created the world in 6 days and designed the JP6 on the 7th. Without doubt my favourite synth and I've owned / used a lot. Not classed by the anoraks as a 'Classic' but who cares! I've got one and that's all that matters. Sound possibilities seem endless. Its never failed me even after almost 20 years since built. Best looking sizer I've ever seen. You wouldn't believe I got it for £100 and a MKS7. Glourious! AMEN...

I disagree. The JP 6 does not sound exactly like the Jupiter 8. The Jupiter 8 is without a doubt fatter and warmer. I am not here to bash the JP 6. In fact, I think it is a great keyboard. I have one beside my Jupiter 8 as well. I think that the JP 6 has better spacey pad type patches than the JP 8. The JP 6 is fatt indeed, but is not leaving behind the JP 8 by any means. I think both of them sound entirely different. A Jupiter 8 is extremely warm. However, warmth may not always be what a person wants or needs. If you want warmth like Toto's Africa then the Jupiter 8 will deliver. If you want really bright spacey pads and cutting leads then the Jupiter 6 will deliver. They sound different. A lot different.

One of the great synths of all time. This synth has it all. Much better in every reapect than most other 'classic' synths. The sound creation possibilities are huge. It has all the features. The build quality is excellent..you won't find many owners compaining about unreliability. It sounds just like a jp8...I've got them side-by-side so I know...but is improved with a better filter and midi. Great cross-mod possibilities. Analogue polysynths don't come any better than this. It's not a beginners synth though. A novice might get a little lost, even thogh it has sliders and switches! It's the kind of synth that you buy and keep forever. Sell all of your analogue junk and buy one..if you can find one. If any synth is worth 5 marks, then this one is. A great classic.

I would love for Roland or really just about anyone to produce a keyboard controller specifically designed for module realtime filter tweaking! They could make a PG 2000 and it could have 76 weighted or non weighted keys with tons of filter and arpeggiator fader or realtime controls onboard. Then you could go out and buy a JD 990, MKS 80, MKS 70, and similiar modules and just go crazy tweaking the filters!!!! It could have the same layout as the Jupiter 8 but add a ribbon controller, motion control, touch sensitivity, etc.!!! I wonder why this has not been done yet? I wonder if it would be compatible with any module out there. Let's say you wanted to use it with an oberheim matrix 1000 then maybe some of the controls would have no effect. One thing that some of these analogs are missing is effect processing. You could put an effects unit or two in your rack that respond to midi and run one or more modules through it. Basically I would be most interested in delay, reverb, and chorus but why limit yourself? The controller could have a link function specially designed for aligning effects patches to synth patches!!!! WOW! I would pay $2,000.00 for something like this!!!! What do you think? Will it ever happen?
