I was curious about this synth because a big brony mentioned it. Years later a coworker was selling his. Nice oscillators, crummy filters, but it works really well as a carrier or for strings.
pretty standard roland virtual analogue synth. relatively flexible but i would call it mostly a pad machine, though you can get some pretty interesting leads/bass tones out of it sometimes. sounds similar to its big brother than jp-8000, but is a little less harsh, and a little more mushy. you can layer 2 sounds together for some really cool affects, though this thing sounds distinctly digital. dont get this thinking youre going to get analogue type sounds out of it, this is a very 2000s sounding synth.
Bought this late 2017 and have had tonnes of fun with it since. This is a synth I would be comfortable with in live-situations as it features fast & easy patch-handeling + the best mod/pitch-wheel I have personally used on a synth
I bought this last year for dirt cheap and I must say I'm so happy to own it. Its been a fun to play around with. The quality doesn't compare to my soft synths but its fun to get ideas out. Lots of eq-ing required after the fact though.
Legend has it that this has the same circuitry as the JP-8000 with twists (or at least some, we actually dont remember where we stump upon this info). the cool thing is that the sound can be layered in a bi-timbral way which can make it really trancy. :)
