The JP8000 is a wonderful synth. Those who criticize some of the presets, don't know that the magic of this instrument is in the programming. No synth and that includes the original analogues, give you more control over the sound. It's not as fat as a Moog or Oberheim, but believe me it's capable of speaker shaking basses. And wonderful unique sounds that fall beautifuly between analogue and digital. I've owned one for nearly three years and nothing has come along in that time that beats it for sound quality and overall hands on control on a sound. It can do any type of dance music really well, add a good drum machine and sampler, and you've an awesome dance music production set-up. GREAT!!!

The JP8000 is an awesome instrument truly it is. Some how Roland managed to create a synth that can do it all. From the warm fat monitor shaking bass sounds to the sweeping pads and even great metal guitar impersonations. It's all there this synth is second to none in Rolands stable, and I will never part with it. At the price it's going for second hand these days it's a steal.

Okay here is my take on the JP 8000. I guess I will be one of the few posters here to criticize this synth. First of all, Roland should not have went with 49 keys. They are trying way to hard to give it an analog visual effect. Secondly, I really don't think it sounds anymore analog than the EMU Vintage Keys module, JV vintage expansion board or Korg Z1. Yes, there are knobs and they are fun to tweak. You can get interesting sounds out of this jewel. But to compare it to a Jupiter? Or even a JX? No way! I would say maybe a Korg prophecy especially the lead patches.

Don't take any of this wrong. The JP 8000 is a great synth! But I have it perched next to an Oberheim OBXA and a JX8P and it is not near as phatt. But worth the money if under 700.00! Have fun!

I did the same and sold my JP8k after owning it for 5 years, stupid me. I find myself missing it dearly. Forget all the people who say it's sound weak, cause it don't. Great for live use (thats what I used mine for) Time to get one very soon...
