JP-8000 is a nice instrument not just a piece of electronics. JP-8000 has all fetures that a synth shuld have and I like it as much as my Fender guitar.

Pay no attention to those anal analog purists. Get brave and start innovating. Let go of the past you'll discover a life beyond analog warm up time.

The JP-8000 is a great piece. It's digital, it's got lots of knobs, buttons and sliders, and it has the potential for creating ** N E W S O U N D S **. It's polyphonic, easy and fun to use, reliable, fully midi compatible, and it stays in tune! It's cuts nicely through a mix.

You want original sounding analog - get a Juno 106 and get out of here! Now then, if you want to explore, create and innovate then get a JP-8000 and learn how to use it!

Yeah, sure.. it IS great. But why make it so small? One cannot expect to play somewhere in the streets for the sheer lack of power connections so it is not really an argument that you can bring it allong easilly. (The prophecy is even smaller). It has four octaves and I believe the old jupiters had five. No problem, but why make the keys almost microscopically small? And I think that eight-voice polyphony is unneciserily old-fashioned, and even poor when using the unit multi-timbrally. Maybe that is why they made it only bi-timbral? These were the thing that in my opinion had to be mentioned. o f course, the sound is so great there's no need at all for multi-timbral use and that sort of thing, but hey, these are the nineties. I think the best feature on this synth is the mere presence of incountable knobs and sliders that seem to be programmable, too. I don't know the specs so I don't know which would be wisest the prophecy or the jp 8000. The prophecy sounds really great too, and at much lower cost. I think it was solely meant as solo synth in combination with something bigger and as such monophny is no problem. Try the Z1!

The JP-8000 doesn't have the imperfections of the old analogs which does make it sound quite a bit different, however, the different sounds that the machine puts out are amazing. If you don't like the digital sounds than don't buy the machine, but stop whining about what is better. The JP has it's own things that make it superior for me. Buy this thing if you want to do some cool Industrial sounds or some Techno. I am using it for a guitar driven Industrial band along side an Alesis QS-6 and an EMU-Orbit, and if you have had to play keyboard around guitar players, this is the machine to have because it gives you something to do other than start sequences and smile pretty. Roland's JP-8000 kicks ass!
