I love this synth!! It may only be two part and 8 voice, but it sounds so good to me that I dont care. It is somewhat limited but it never even crossed my mind that I should sell it. I recently got a Novation Nova so I can now have a multi VA and although Im totally in love with the Nova I cannot get it to make synth strings as fat and beautiful as I can on the jp8k. Bottom line, the jp8k is so easy to use and sounds so good the rest you will be able to live with.

had my jp for about 1.5 years now and i still stand in amazement at its timbres. i had to re calibrate the pitch bender cos it kept on sending out midi data in its neutral position but its ok now .i also have a CS1X which sounds thin and to digital in comparison. the only problem is that it cannot remember midi channel settings when you power down but thats my only complaint. it really is the dogs swingers.

Eh, I've spent some time with the JP8000 now. My first impression: Simply Amazing.

But after spending some more time with it, I think the JP is just Ok. It doesn't really have enough features for me - which is why I ended up with an AN1X. Much more versatility and programmability. I seriously got bored of the JP8k after like 2-3 hours of playing.

One great thing about the JP8000 is the easy access to all the knobs and sliders...this thing would make an UNSTOPPABLE live synth...but until I go gigging, the AN1x is my VAnalog of choice.

Alright folks... here is the deal. I own a JP-8000, a Juno 106, and a Korg DW-8000. I researched the Z1, Nord Lead 2, and ANX1 before purchasing the JP. The JP is just killer. I use the board to play live (a real band... not geeky home-studio stuff). Phatness? I play it thru a Roland KC-500 amp, then have the sound guys mic it. That thing through a full PA is just incredible.

Regarding the old Juno 106 and DW-8000. They have that pure-true analog sound, so they still have their place. But, when we recently recording our CD, the Juno 106 started failing. So, I set the 106 and JP next to eachother, and just modeled the 106 sound on the JP... it sounded just as good (with no line-noise, even).

Don't believe the hype... the JP is a great synth. For my live setup, I just use that and my new Hammond XK-2 for organ stuff.

But, hey, the Z1 is probably my next purchase... you can never have too many, right?

want to hear my synths?

fter having my JP-8000 for a little over a year and half now, I can honestly say that it has brought me nothing but excellent results. I'm a keyboardist in my band and I use along with the JP-8K, a Nordlead2 and Korg Z1, and the JP-8K really shines in it's ease of sound manipulation. Practically any sound I need, I can dial up a preset change a few parameters and you have a convincing replicaof that sound. Just an awesome onstage performance synth. I really recommend it for musicians who are influenced by such bands as Depeche Mode, Erasure..80's stuff ect, and modern electronica. Really delivers huge bass, lush strings, and nice leads. Although it's not perfect, which no keyboard is, it sure gets the job done! You can get them now used for around $750, which I think is a great buy! Definately not a groove-aproved product!! but the Real Deal!
