The aftertouch problem is repairable if you either replace the graphite strip, or re-graphite the old strip. I have cleaned individual key contacts on my JX-10 but never attempted the AT repair. Honestly, I don't think it's a huge issue, at least for me. If I need the AT for expression, I will MIDI...

Preset patches are just a great vantage point to understanding the sonic 'supremacy' of the synth... However, I'm not saying these need to be the best reflection and example of the engine's capacity.. eg JX10. The synth is such a great pad machine.... yet as for preset patches pads are scarce..good ...

hehe.. finally that thread :D When I was studying in UK, I was desperate to get a keyboard... But since I knew I'd be going back to my homeland, it had to comply with several restrictions: - it had to fit in my luggage, thus 49-keys max.. less keys wouldn't work, as I like to play - a standalone syn...

Let me put smth forward first: if you're looking for a 'first synth', I assume you're not that well acquainted with synthesis whatsoever.. For that reason I'd rather twist your choices and exclude some of them.. So, here's what follows: Nord Lead - indeed a great synth, but I'm wondering if it's rea...

Have you considered Tascam US-122? It's the furthest end amongst audio int-faces as labelled by many, although I've been pretty much happy with it. I needed a compact Audio/Midi unit.... Oh, I've never encountered any hassle in setting up basic stuff with it, as opposed to what I heard about it. But...

Yeah, if you can find a Polysix below 300$.. Indeed, knobby box with sheer power, but I'm kinda reluctant to recommend that one in respect to your musical preference. As others say, Juno-series are worth a look: rather cheap, reliable (somewhat untrue with Juno106 in that case), quite versatile and ...

It apparently sounds a bit odd when one says it is a tracker what makes him feel retarded!
