What I am about to say is going to make alot of people say NO-WAY! I own a Roland MC303 well two actually. And it can produce speaker shaking bass sounds to match a Juno 106 or even a JP8000. And these things can be picked up for as little as 200 dollars these days. I clinched a recording deal with a dance label by using two MC303's linked together by midi to give an awesome 16 track sequencer, and a Sampler. The point is it's the imagination of the person as much as the equipment they're using. Alot of the sounds I get out of the MC303 amaze people I know. I took the time to learn the instrument inside out.

The JP8000 is amazing, I can think of a sound and 9x out of 10 I can get it on this beauty. The only other modern virtual analogue synth that is nearly as good, is Korg's MS2000 although it's only 4 note polyphonic. I've created unique snare drums on the JP8000 wonderful heavy bass sounds and sweeping pads. It's so much fun to program, if you love modern dance and the old electro pop sounds of people like Vince Clark I recommend you buy this synth or the Korg MS2000, they are both must HAVES for that type of sound. The JP8000 is my alltime fave synth WITHOUT doubt.

The JP8000 is fantastic. No it isn't a Jupiter 8! It's better, Why? Because it can do anything a Jupiter can do and alot more. Minus the unstable tuning and back-breaking weight. Believe me I had a Jupiter 8 and I know. This synth is a programmers dream. It can't produce fat basses? are you kidding? I set a challenge with a friend of mine who owns a Juno 106 which is known for its fat bass sounds. He said you can't match the Juno 106 bass, so I got tweaking an hour later he's a convert. The bass sound I got is every bit as fat as anything he could show me on the Juno. Guess what synth he's after now? If you're a lazy bastard who can't program or don't have any imagination and creativity, then this isn't the synth for you. If on the other hand you're a creative person who loves to not only create the great sounds of the past, but also the great sounds of the FUTURE! This is the best synth you could have at your finger-tips! Like I said it's a programmers dream!!! 5 out of 5!

Right you are, Megan. An excellent analysis! The JP is DEEEEP and fun as poo to play. The programmable ribbon controller alone is worth the price of admission alone!
