Comments from User studios

  • Roland's first VA synth. Great sound and a breeze to create your own sounds. Most of the time just plain fun to toy with. (Children of Jupiter studio)
  • My 3rd proudness. The JP-8000 may be old, but I'm still fallen in true love with its Supersaws and the two-part multitimbrality that boosts the sound a huge notch while keeping a whopping, true 4 note polyphony :) Takes a little knowing to put it to good use, but it sure pays off. Just a simple jam is fun enough! Touch two parameters from the initial settings and you have your trance patch right there to play with :) BUT! How the hell do you turn off that insane MIDI Soft Thru?? It completely kills/crashes the two-way MIDI performances! It's still a damn cool synth =) (CyberKenny Home Studio studio)
  • my first virtual analogue synth... and my second synth in absolute (my first one was a Roland XP-80). I don't use this often nowadays, but I'm still proud of owning it... and it's still unique for many sounds it can create (sssupersaw?!) (Cyberleaf Studio studio)
  • My first real synth. Has taught me tons about synthesis very quickly due to the large number of ready controls on the face of it. Touch something, something changes. Doesn't get much simpler than that, right? Sounds great too, haven't really been able to find myself in need of something it couldn't do (yet). (The Hermit\'s Den studio)
