The best synth ever? Could be. Sounds great, feels great and always works. They say you can pick one up for $300. Holy cow!! Buy one ...sell your car, wife, or house...just buy one! The worlds gone mad!

totally agree w/you, sally. anybody who owns this machine (or an mks-70): get yourself an oberheim matrix 1000 (they´re really cheap these days) and hook it up with your jx via midi: they are sonically similar enough, and - hey presto - you got yourself one huge supersynth that might even surpass a jupiter-8 or matrix-12... after that, you´ll wonder how anyone could be bothered getting a v.a.... if you´re lucky, this super-synth will cost you appr. 1100 euros only.

One of the best synths of all time. I bet Roland wish that they never gave it any midi spec! The moaners wouldn't be able to go on and on and on about what it can't do. It has midi which is more than can be said for most analogues. The spec otherwise is complete and awesome. The sounds are amongst some of the best you will get out of any analogue. The build, reliability and keyboard are the best I have ever experienced on a synth. Yes, a pg800 will make your life easier. However, without it things are still straightforward. Not a synth for beginners. Even with the pg it is easy to get lost. Clearly, this is better than 99%of analogue synths. It's not a toy you keep in your bedroom and show off to your mates. Its a keyboard for proper musicians who know how to program and play. If you are a moaner, a beginner or a bedroom mozart, don't bother. Buy yourself a SH101 and convince yourself that your wicked!!

I had one of these once, for a few years. I sold it cos it's a bitch to program without the PG800. Plus the midi implementation sucks. The alpha-dial is terrible! It's all very well saying it doesn't matter, it's an 'analog' synth etc, but it does matter, cos there's no slider nonsense possibilities unless you have the aforementioned programmer. And whoever said it's good for bassy pads...why do you want bassy pads? They'll just gobble the bandwidth in your track and end up fighting the bassline for the low-end territory. Methinks.

Anyway yes I guess it's a bargain and it sure is built like a tank, but I think you're better off spending some more money on something you can actually control. Just my humble opinion for the benefit of anyone thinking of purchasing one.
