This is for anyone wondered what are the difference between MKS70 and JX8P. While having them two and after making repairs to my MKS-70, I can say that the only visible difference between the two is the MKS70 (and probably the JX10 as well) uses lower noise / higher quality opamps (Mitzubishi M5218 vs Sharp 4558 on the JX8P).

The reflection in sound is that the JX8P sounds darker, warmer, has moire low end to it but is less detailed as well, while the MKS70 is brighter, has less low end, but is much more detailed and clean. That's is without mentioning the fact the the JX10 / MKS70 has two JX8P like sound engines so you can patch two JX8P tones together, setting different aftertouch and split options to them (Xfade etc).

While they are thought to be similar I must note that they are quite different, the JX8P being a bit more "analog" sounding (check the Soundtrack patch used on Alphaville's "Forever Young" into).

21 years ago I started to make music and the JX-8P was my dream-machine from the first moment it was released. But in the late 80-ies unfortunately I never had enough money to get one. In the nineties I forgot the analog synths and I also got on the digital train. But now I re-discoverd my interest for the good old analog machines, and a few weeks ago I fulfilled my old dream and I purchased a used JX-8P in a very good shape for a good price at ebay, it were only 180,- Euro (about 200 $)! And I really love it more and more every day. Ok, without a programmer it takes a bit time to get good sounds but that does not disturb me much. So for example I have created a special "brachial" brass sound that blows away all of my other gear out of my house, yeah! If well programmed this synth developes real analog power sounds, believe me! The JX-8P is very very good for strings and brasses, on the other side piano sounds and basses are not so good, but that does not matter at all. Forget the presets too, create your own sounds! If you like good string and brass sounds, get one before this synth becomes cult like the Juno´s! I guess it will not take long time and the prices will rise!

JX8P: I love this phantastic instrument combined with an excellent upblowing 4 RAM BANKS (256) sound Card. I have developed this one a long time ago and I sold with my friend CEO of METRASOUND Cologne a lot. People loved it. I am really rethinking, to produce this special sound filled 256 MAXRIDGE RAM CARD with a lot of very good warm, fat and even hybrid synthesizer (I love Toto, Saga, etc.). If you start chatting, please let me know, if you are really interested in this still super MAXRIDGE 256 RAM SOUND CARD. Lot´s of greating to US from Odenthal (Cologne Area, Germany). Sincerly yours Manfred H. Buechel. A real creative and musician person.
