Re: JX-8P v Juno-60

Yep, this has been said a few times on here (the rack version of the JX-3P does NOT sound the same as the keyboard). Roland really liked to swap things up in their JX/MKS range, little did they know how many threads and debates this would cause over 20 years later on some cosy synth forum! ;) And y...

Re: A Synth nerds existential crisis.

if you want to continue being loyal to the 80' hybrids the dw is clearly the way to go . like it has been said its real easy to program and sounds sweet. if you like the sound of the microkorg maybe you should try to get the ms-2000 rack version for around the same price. it would be a nice way to c...

Re: Do you aknowledge the importance of dance music

do you aknoledge the importance of synthesizers in dance music? if it weren't for synthesizers most "dance" music would be completely boring (for me at least).

Re: is selling my ensoniq esqm a mistake?

Ross, First, the ESQ/SQ lineup are not particularly rare or expensive so you should easily be able to find another. There are a lot of fans of that synth here, particularly because it has a lot of features and flexibility and it is cheap. However, as much as people go on about this being an underra...
