Don't know what you mean about sysex dumps. Mine does it all at once and has never once defaulted. Your keyboard needs a service, that's all. Not the keyboards, fault, just a lack on maintenanace. All analogue chorus features are noisey. Most synths of any quality didn't bother including a chorus at all...Jupiter6 and Prophet5 come to mind. This is a great, well built and long lasting synth. The dac is a pain in the arse, though you can you editors. Makes the 106 sound woefully thin and uncoloured. It is basically 2 106s with cross mod.

Interesting box - a definite winner. I'll list the bad things because it is shorter that way: crappy roland chorus (sounds nice but is too damn noisy for any serious studio work), aftertouch sucks, keyboard has a tendency to stick at times, no sysex dump of entire memory at once, and rather limited (even for the time) 32 memories.

Good things? Everything else. Sounds orgasmic.

I've done the JX8P for 10 years. It's a great board. It went on the road with me for 6 years. Got dropped twice/ fixed twice. Does nasty bass on stage. Patch struture lets you easily change sounds while performing. Using it now as a controler for an Akai module I use for 16 channel Cakewalk recording.

well, after acquiring mine about eight months ago, i have decided to sell it. why? because i now have the 10. i bought the 8 because it was/is absolutely mint; not a scratch on her($150). yes, the keyboard sux ass. shitty action and stuck notes galore. despite this, it is an EXCELLENT string and pad machine. envelopes are too slow for punchy, furiously sequenced bass, but it will do some nasty sub bass in mono mode. also does weird sounds quite well. the software editor functions just like a PG800 with added features, like sysex loading... to me, this unit is useful for strings, pads, and chord stabs- this is where it excels. now that i have the 10 it is time for it to go and make room for something else. kinda sad to see it go...
