Have this baby now for 3 months and it still keeps me comming back for more each day.

the sheer amount of control and sounds possible are enormous and the sound is massive.

this will cut through anything you can throw at it and will stay on top.

nice thing about this machine(or any other analog or virtual analog) is that when set-up correctly there is always a sweetspot. this button or slider will give you dramatic sonical changes when moved. if you route this sweetspot to the ribbon and set-up as sequences or arpeggiated sound(with synced delay) you will be in for hours of trance induced bliss and digital nirvana !!!

I love this synth!! It is my favourite piece of gear and the best sounding too. Nothing else I have can sound as big and Beautiful. I have a Novation Nova as well and the two of them together is heaven. The jp8000 is worth every cent of your money. So easy to use and so good at what it does that the lack of voices and limit of only 2 parts is forgiven. Just listen..invent and enjoy!

Boy--I bought a JP8K a month ago, hooked it up to my MC-303 and couldn't get enough of it. The patches and performances are so...organic. I'm driving my neighbors crazy, and I'm sure that they think I have some kind of demonic presence living with me (what else could make sounds like that?). It's not for the paint-by-the-numbers sequencer types, nor is it going to make the thrash guitarists in your band happy. They're bound, in fact, to be overtly envious--you can give more expression with the JP8K than you could ever give out of a guitar (perhaps to tease, Roland included that "Feedback Lead" patch--heh,heh,heh). Definitely not for those of you who focus on Roy Orbison covers. Organic...versatile...expressive.

Got 1 second hand last week. Hooked this up to my MC 303 Use the LFO/Chorus and Delay sync a lot Switch on the arpeggiator and groove away!! Synced delays are just so cool, it makes you want to keep on playing and playing

Some nice,inspiring sounds if you do some carefull tweaking Run the arpeggiator when editing coz often the sequenced sounds are better this way then when played solo. All in all this baby sounds heavy and is capable in producing real synthesized sounds and is therefore ideal if your into dance, electro.

What's missing? An external audio input maybe but if you want to filter audio get a Sherman Filterbank which is a 100 times better then all these external inputs being offered on the latest racks/keybooards this thing makes a Casio watch sound like Waldorf (check out WWW.PING.BE/SHERMAN)

This is a very good masterkeyboard too, despite the 4 octave keyboard...All the sliders and knobs send out MIDI-data, so you can alter the parameters of a synth-module with it...Some people complain about the fact that it's only 2 part mulitimbral, but the sound is really phat so when you use 2 sounds from this machine, your mix is already pretty full! I have made tracks with only the JP (for bass and lead)and the 909 drumset from my JV1080 and it sounded pretty massive!...Respect>>>tweak your knobs...
