THE JX8P sounds so good it puts u where you dream of you dont need the pg800 its not to difficult to program enless your just starting out.there going for around $300 its worth alot more than that. buy one now they just might double in price when the mainstream finds out.the only downfall on this synth is those lousy keys that stick the voice (sometimes).

These are going for stupid low money in the UK now as are the rest of the JX line. I can`t imagine for one minute why anyone would pay over the odds for other DCO machines when you can get a JX8p for £200.. ultimate smooooooth strings and wide pads.

Nope it doesn`t send controller info out from the PG800, but you CAN control the 8p from external Sysex (peavey etc), the JX10 doesn`t even do this , Roland never sorted this but the Rack version (MKS70 basically 2x8ps in a rack) does it fine..

I just bought a JX and was wondering if what kind data the PG-800 sends to the synth (SysEx???). Can this data be recorded into a sequencer and be played backed? This synth has a warm and mellow filter, like my Juno 1. Which is good for smooth pads, so that is what I use it for.

Underrated synth compared to the Juno series and is usually a bit cheaper. This has the best keyboard action of any synth I've ever owned. The sounds can range from warm and rich to biting, metallic sounds. Covers strings, syn choirs, basses, brass, and bells quite well. It can also do sweeps, organs, and unique synth sounds with ease. It's pretty versatile and not too difficult to program w/o the PG-800. The unison modes really fatten up the sounds, which are pretty good on their own. It has a certain warmth and ballsiness that my AN1X can't duplicate. I guess you could say it is a bit rawer due to the lack of all the processing except the chorus. I really like this synth and would keep it, but I just got a JP-8 and I can't afford to keep them both. Get one now while the techno-heads are busy snapping up all the 60/106's.
