Lo tengo hace un par de semanas , y ha demostrado ser una bestia indomable de vez en cuando , pero luego de unos días comienzas a conocerlo . Me encanta la facilidad con que puedes jugar en tiempo real con él y luego guardar los sonidos creados fácilmente .

Se lleva muy bien junto a mi Korg MS2000 .

Es un gran sinte , usted se enamorará pronto de él .

Andrés.

A bloody polymoog...I'm sure he could live without one of those...especially the keyboard! The JD is a different thing altogether. Glorious! The sound quality is super clean. It sounds nothing like a minimoog. They are totally different things. More like an arp odyssey, I would have thought. Lovely control. The sliders make this a mega supersynth. What all s&s synths should have been like. This is a professional keyboard. They belong in proper studios not bedrooms. You will never tire of a JD. It is the best Roland sinse the JX10/Jupiter8 era. It was discontinued far too early.

In issue 1 of Future Music, Gary Numan stated that the JD800 could do anything his minimoogs could do! Having owned a polymoog and a moog source myself (as well as having had an extensive loan of a minimoog), I probably (well, 90%)agree with Numan (it's interesting that all these years later, Numan's keyboardist, Ade Orange, used a JD800 recently on stage during the Pure tour). Sparks Ron Mael also had one on stage during the Gratuitious Sax tour, although his seems to have been made by RONALD, according to the logo on it!

Anyway, I have had years of fun with mine, with only one strange problem: the demo sequences started playing out of tune! This was easily and cheaply repaired.

I do miss my moogs though. I sold the polymoog because every time I moved it, circuit boards popped out, and some of the circuits actually just disintegrated. My moog source wouldnt stay in tune. However, you live and learn. I wish I still had them, particularly when I put on records like John Foxx's "Metamatic" and "The Garden". A UK company called SOUNDS OK used to do programmes for the JD800, and I am sure one of their cards included a Vox Humana preset (the distinctive early Numan sound from the Moog PolyMoog Keyboard, as opposed to the Polymoog Synthesiser). Has anyone out there used any Sounds OK programmes with their JD800? Has anyone heard the Vox Humana programme? Does the company still exist? Thanks for your help.

A mega beast synth. Tons of synth power. The sound is clean. Loads of bass. Lovely sliders. Reliable. One of the great synths of all time. You will never be disappointed if you buy one of these.

One of the best synths of all time. The sounds and control and both fantastic. You can make some truely massive sounds. Great build quality. Most professional players who I know have got one lurking about somewhere. I know one guy who's got one in his kitchen! Would you really own a 990 before one of these. I don't think so. Not unless you're mad. Mine has been gigged to death. I'm going to get an immaculate replacement. The pads are as good as those on the Prophet VS.
