This synth didn't seem to hot when I first got it because I was using the presets. When I started making my own sounds I was amazed at how good they sound (and how many you can make). This synth is great go buy one. :-)

Got my JP 6 today for 950 € and I have to say that it's warm , FAT !!

Simply the best Roland's analogue synth.

PS. : Don't bee fooled by the VA synths. Simply get some analogue gears and effect modules and you will see the difference. And again , a synth always sounds great when it is well played don't forget it.

A very professional synth...not for the faint hearted. It sounds exactly like the jp8..I should know having then side by side in my studio. If anything, it is more versitile having a better filter. Mine's had the midi upgrade so it's quite useful as part of a midi set up. Great control and sound possibilities. The price they fetch is much fairer than the jp8..which, with midi, can be as much as £1500! And, with most synth suppliers there's a waiting list. If you can do without the two voice extra polyphony and want midi and increased stability and reliability then the jp6 is for you. The modest prices asked for the jp6 can only be a temporary situation. It is a much more viable proposition than a prophet5, oberheim or memorymoog. Sonically, it is just as distinctive. The build quality is excellent,and, if one ever did go wrong, parts are readily available. Much more fun than trying to locate parts for a memorymoog's power supply..or voice chips for a prophet 5. I love mine and will never part with it. Unfortunately, most people say the same thing and they rarely come up for sale. If you do get the chance to buy one, seize the chance with both hands. I guarentee you will not be disappointed with you purchase.

This baby is a beauty. The best synth I ever did play. The filtering and modulation possibilities are fun and endless. You can use the synth for any type of music. Sometimes sounds hard, other times sounds soft and warm. The ideal synth! The construction is great and with all of those flashing lights, it looks great with the lights off. It's a much more safe bet than the jp8 which, of course, doesn't have midi. Also, it obviously blows the 106 out of the water in just about every way (not in midi spec unless you have had the spectacular upgrade.) Mine has never gone wrong, though it has been knocked a good few times. This synth must be one of the best synths ever made. It feels must more modern, complete and designed than memory moog. A geat classic! I love it and so should you!

After owning a JP8 and a MKS-80 I got a JP6 and for me have found that the JP6 blows them all away. Not sure why, but I keep going back to it and getting what I have spent hours on the others looking for and always finding it on the JP6.Nine out Ten times getting that certain sound that's in my head for that certain track comes to life when I use the JP6. I think it is one of the best Synths ever made. Roland has giving us many great things to work with but the Jupiter 6 is a true blessing.I doubt if I ever would sell mine.
