That clickin has to do with the Amp and Filter envelopes...When set too low on certain waveforms(attack)...clicking will be heard...this happens to every synth..just try turning the Amp attack up a bit till the clicking isn't heard...but I find that on a lot of pro tracks...they leave the clicking...

the clicking sound occurs with certain env or filter settings, sometimes tweaking the filter envelope helps or raising the attack in the amp etc, I have also heard other VA's do this on occassion..

Hi! I have my Roland Jp-8080 now already for a year and a half and i'm very satisfied with it. I have just questions about tickin' sound or strange "like bad recorded waves" when i move Cutoff frequency button to the bottom.Does somebody knows what i'm talking about?? Otherwise i'm using it for making my dream tracks, like Trance, Goa and similar stuff :)

I love the digital sound of the 8080, I've owned it for 2 years or so and I still love it but don't expect it to have all the characteristics of true analog- it doesn't, it can sound really great regardless- excellent strings- much better than you'd expect from a virtual analog, basses + leads are easy enough to create as well as shifting noise soundscapes - the fx are ok- the delay has the typical digital stepping. The filters sound really digital to me and lack the smoothness you are going to find in real analog- sometimes you will get a crackling sound from the filter or env combo that can be damn annoying. The quality of the resonance is totally different than analog resonance- it lacks the smoothness of analog - you cannot obtain that "piercing" resonance that you get from an sh 101 for example, the resonance at high levels sounds thin and almost like 2 high freq tones being layered together. At any rate the synth has some excellent capabilities and once you get the right sound programmed it is always right on- Its a great DIGITAL synth but sounds much harsher than real analog.
