The JP-8000 is a wonderful synth. It does an incredible job at what it's supposed to. I think these people that are saying bad thinks about it haven't played it enough and have know idea how to program. Who ever said this thing isn't any good for techno? Are you fucking crazy? It is absolutely fabulous for techno. For bass/lead lines this thing is a must. It's not supposed to be an all-in-one techno machine. You need a drum machine/sampler and maybe a JV-2080 to go along with, but I think the filters are fine, the arpeggiator is great, and this thing is perfect for those trance lines/bass grooves. I think a lot of people don't know how to program or take the time to program sounds, but I have done wonders with this thing. As for it not being FAT? Sounds fat enough for me; if it was any fatter it would take up too much space in the audio spectrum and I wouldn't be able to hear any other instruments. I knew what I was purchasing when I bought this thing. I played it about 10 times before I bought it. I knew what I was buying, a two-part multitimbral analog modeling synth perfect for adding those analog tweaks/elements to techno music. I used to own a nord lead. This things is better, I sold the nord. I also bought the CS1x home for three weeks before returning it. I spent time with it and wanted to beleive there was some good stuff in their, but the CS1x sucks bad.

This synth beats all ass. It's easily worth the money. If you want a good analog or analog-ish synth definately check this one out. I have a friend who has a Juno 60 and he said that the JP 8000 is "three million times better" and while that might be somewhat of an overstatement (three million is a lot) he's damn right that this synth beats ass.

The JP-8000 is awesome in all ways, it hands down sets the new standard for the cutting edge. Solid State.

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!
