Well. How do I explain I bought mine for $250 Australian Dollars (A old lady bought it to learn piano?!). The Midi retro fit cost me more. Here's the sacred info: If you own a Jupiter 8 find a 'Groove Electronics' (in England) Midi Retro. You can Put the Jup in Split Mode and it becomes 2 part Multi-Timbral!! Also, All sliders recieve controllers, Vel/aftertouch ect can be assigned to filters and more, It allows sys-ex Loads/Dumps and it send out note info when using the appeg. Great Stuff Indeed. So why do I Give Mine Top Marks?

Theres just nothing like its power and sound.

First, I am actually a guitar player (insert laughter),but recently I decided to broaden my musical scope. A friend alerted me to the fact that there was a used Jupiter 8 for sale at one of the local music shops. I'd never heard of the machine before, but I went ahead and checked it out. I was utterly devistated by its power and versitility. I'm not a rave fan, but this machine is definately up that alley. The sounds are so fat and juicy, it's like a rare steak for the ears. I still don't know what the hell I'm doing with it (it didn't come with a manual, of course and remember: I'm a guitar player-- I'm supposed to be a slow learner when it comes to anything that's not a metallica classic but I just love tripping out over the increadible sounds this thing turns out with the slightest flick of a button. Compared to what I hear in rave music and from other, more modern keyboards, this is the best damn thing ever made. If anyone has tips on how to harness the power of this beast, please e-mail me! If you come across one of these, buy it immediatly (or rob the store if you're short on cash) because everybody needs one of these-- even guitarists!

Most complete analog beast from Roland, unfortunately also the last one.

Comparing the Jupe-8 to the JP8000 you'll notice the absolute sonic

difference between analog and digital. You can't make a Jupe-8 sound dull!

I wonder if anyone ever had the idea of making several Jupe-8s modular and

add a little here or there. The stability of the Jupe-8 with the sonic noise

it makes would be a supurb modular. If only... Mine is not for sale. I'm afraid I'll make them burry me with it... RVe, the Jura Plant, Amsterdam

Fear this box. Bought mine in 1988 &quot;used&quot; (cosmetically flawless) for US $700

and got it MIDI'd. Never ceases to amaze me with its depth, complexity and

character. Fear this box. Can cause irreversible personality disorders when

cross modulation and sync are combined...or at least some serious animal kingdom

noises. Performance control section is wonder-bar. Heat sink doubles as a steak

thawing device. Looks as beautiful as it sounds. Wish list: (admit you don't

have one!) resonant filter, velocity sensitive keyboard, alpha display.

Legislation pending to require reissue in the U.S. with a pretty pink bow...
