The legendary trance machine!
I bought my JP-8000 with my first official paycheck back in 2008. The sound of the JP's Supersaw is no less than legendary--it shaped trance as we know it today and is still powerful enough for modern productions! I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Sounds great, but I don't use it very often anymore
One of the most beautiful synths ever made. This is a great sounding synth with a lot of sliders and knobs to mess with the sound on the fly. It's digital. Today, software synths offer more and are easier to handle when producing on a powerful computer. also, the JP 8000 is not the only synth with Super Saw anymore. So I do not use it as often. Maybe I take it on stage, one day...
I got one for cheap when they were at closeout. I traded it for an SH-2 and never regretted it. It has supersaw if you're into that sort of thing. I'm not ripping if you are, I'm just not.
Are these vintage now? They have lot's of problems nowadays I hear. Be careful out there.
The purple beast
The JP-8000 is the subtractive performance digital synth in all its glory. All controls at the hands reach, with a fat and luxurious sound. It´s a bass, lead and pad synth - and it excels in all these three fields. Although it has a plastic (purple!!!) case, the JP-8000 is robust. But be prepared to clean periodically (say every 2 years) the faders and knobs - they tend to get dirty and make the JP behavor at his own will. Overall, a great and powerful digital synth.
Beautiful and Powerful
I've used this particular synth in many of my compositions. Powerful leads, rich pads with stereo game and ribbon controller! Very important to play it with his keyboard. Sound changes completely when connected to another keyboard or computer. In fact I always play it free and record directly to my Logic Pro.
