I just bought a JX8P for 250.00 . I own 3 JD-800's and I still love the analog tone of the JX8P to. I did not have that much trouble programing the patch's at all.

im 24 yrs old. this synth has like 5 years on me. i grew up thinking it was a space ship( it sounds like one lol, the mod wheel was the throttle). my dad after not playing it for 10 years finally gave it to me. im looking for the pg800, hard to track down. this thing is awesome tho, great sounds if u want a retro vibe. my family and i will hopefully be enjoying this for another 20 or so years to come

I love this thing! Put simply its a well made, solid, analog/hybrid that can shame its predecessor the Jupiter 6!(at least with the string pads and brass) I have a JP-6 and as great as that synth is, I just cant compare the pads. The JX has much fuller, warmer ones. Programming is not as bad as you may be left to believe. It is a hell of alot easier than say a JU-1, I would recommend one highly. And yes, the aftertouch is a joke as most people will agree. To make use of the aftertouch use a newer Midi controller that has one. A classic analog/DCO poly synth.

i don't know much about anything,especially vco's and lfo's and all that.one day i just decided to try and make music and i wanted to get a synth.i got one of these for like 150 bucks on ebay and i got a jx 3p for 350 or some stupid ridiculous price.while i do love the jx 3p,even though the sequencer broke(one of the best things about it!),the jx 8p is definitely a superior synth.the sound is so strong,i love the strings,feels like gary numan, and editing is so fun.i don't have the pg 800 but it's simple to use without it.i've got lots to learn but i know with my ears that this synth is a keeper.definitely 80's,which in my opinion is a really good thing.

i'm just in the process of buying back my old jx-8p, basically because i missed it the minute i sold it. in my own opinion, the jx-8p is probably the 2nd best analog poly roland ever released, i say 2nd best because the jupiter 8 is the best roland ever released and probably the best poly ever by anyone. but back to the jx-8p, why this is still so cheap is quite beyond me, while the much more inferior jx3p and any of the juno's command far higher prices is something of a joke, the jx8p will destroy any of the previous mentioned synths in size of sound and programming choices. i think it has some of the best synth strings ever, and it can do some beautiful basses and cross mod sounds, as well as brass etc etc etc, to name just a few of its sounds, yes it only has a few patches but hey remember when this synth was released and go out and buy a cartridge you can pick them up on ebay. in a way i'm glad its still so cheap because i intend on buying at least one more possible two. buy one now they are cheap. a good synth that has stood the test of time.
