I bought an sc-30 used for $100.00. Its a really cool piece of equipment but the pdf manual sucks. If anyone has the manual in html format I would love to get a copy of it. I do agree though the demo samples are weak and sound like crap.

i very like this machine for many obvious reason. 1st more often the not, far and few between sampler i seen are like the js 30 for example in variation to other fundimental factors to deal with acomplishing certain tasks and acheiving certain sound Roland is second to none constananly breaking ground ha just kidden some watches use higher tech chips bah . but anyway smoked a fizzy gonna check one dese puppies owt soon. Scsi is a good thing i guess i just need a qeustion. with SCSI and zip disk can i save samples from the js 30 to the zip disk. so in other words be able to create a sample library on zip disks from the js 30 .. i guess that s all sorry for the split personality intro ,.

I just bought it used (but in a very good condition) in the main configuration, but without manual:( for 60$. It's funny big grey ugly toy like extended vintage Casio RZ-1 sampling drum mashine with SCSI interface for fast recording something like "a-a! O-oh! U'r my babe!!" :)Preset sounds are awfull, 8-bit!! - it's NOT a professional studio sampler of coarse! But u can create really strange dirty sounds like the "hiss of tape" or "old vinil scrach" sounds without any processors - just sample something via microphone!:) Not bad! I have now a "sampler" with a some kind of a natural "white noise generator":) "Pf-f-f!!!!! Sh-h-h! S-s-s-s!":) If anybody has a manual for this piece of S..T in PDF format, please, send it to me! Thanks!

Excellent machine, some limitations. No internal effects but it is a solid machine. It might be targeted toward DJs... but in the hands of other user it becomes a powerful tool. Besides in comparison to a SP-202 this thing crushes it. It is a big machine in comparison to more modern equipment but the machine has a good feel and interface.

For want it does in a cost vs features sense it is a solid 5. Funny how the newer Akai S20 lack the ability to read Akai CDs and has no SCSI port. The JS-30 has both.

Note: Mine lacks Zip drive compatibility because older rom chip. If anyone has or can get me the upgraded operating system rom chip I would be very, very interested in buying it.
