With a JV-50 for starters the lack of arpeggiation and the desire to emulate the ol' 303 had me looking to the JP8000. And, after practically having an orgasm in the shop when I saw it, it is excellent. The build quality is top notch, the sliders feel great and the programmed sounds are pretty useful. Once used in combination with a more performance orientated units (such as the JV) it comes into it's element, although I wouldn't have one as my only unit. Gripes? A bit complex until you use it a lot. But, that's what I thought of the JV series and the XP when I looked at that (the second-hand JV-50 with expansion cost the same as the XP-10).

Sound wise I love this machine but I've run int

a disturbing problem: The arpegiator doesn't

appear to really lock to external MIDI !! It seems

to speed ahead of the incoming MIDI . Everything

else is great. Rip

the jp8000 doesn't have the fat, low end chunkyness that analog purists will want.

it doesn't have the same bite that the nord has either. but in every other

&quot;digital trying to be analog&quot; way, it's a fantastic synth. it's all about sound

design, but they've also provided a very good programming interface. a card slot

for saving patches would've been nice. i'm axious to see how roland improves

upon the jp in order to compete with the korg z1.

JP8000 is dead easy to use, and it sounds marvellous!! Applause for Zoe for getting it right....Don't try to compare apples with oranges. If you think Nord is much better, then use a nord and don't go into a frenzy about how bad the JP8000 sounds.
