I won this on eBay for £310 and received it yesterday. Why am I posting a review after only one day? Because that's all the time I need to say that this is a fantastic, original, character laden, easy to use synth.

I own a Yamaha SY77, Korg Wavestation, Access Virus and Waldorf XT but this, this, this beauty still manages to outshine thses with some of its patches! It is easy to use, logical, immediate and rewarding. I fell in love in 2 minutes flat. This is a performance synth (and I haven't even got around to trying that yet) and it begs you to be PLAYED!

My advice: Sell a kidney/child/grandmother and go and get one if you can find one (they pop up from time to time on eBay. You will not regret it.

The JP8000 is the second greatest synth Roland ever made, only the JP6 takes it. It can produce amazing sounds as phat and cutting as a JP6. The only other digitally based synth that sounds as good is the mighty Yamaha SY77. I recommend the JP8000 to anyone wanting the JP6 sound and MORE.

I have used the jp-8000 since the mid 90's when it first came out...... I find it to be dope azz chit to say the least! The Sounds I have created with this beast, are unimaginable unless you were there! As far as studio work or live performance it is great to use, and I have witnessed it's awesome power live by the likes of Uberzone, Crystal Method, and many others...

The JP8000 is a great little VA sizer. It doesn’t sound as raw, unique and analogue as say a NordLead but it sound good. It has a typical Roland (Japanese) sound, very neat and clean as opposed to e.g. Sequential, Oberheim and Moog.

The only reason why I don’t have a JP8000 is because Scooter uses one. :)

Okay, I'm really convinced about the JP-8000's capabilities as a virtual analog synth. For those who are doubting the capabilities, check out this MP3 I made to show off how close it comes. No external effects or processing were used. Again, if you know how to program analog synths, the JP-8000 is a much better alternative to fiddling with and repairing vintage gear, unless you do it for pleasure. Enjoy.
