ART Pro VLA II valve/tube compressor, any good?

I see a lot of people rave about these because they're one of the cheaper real valve/tube compressors from the specs it looks good, just a shame it doesn't feature a wet/dry control my question is, does this comp actually use the tube for the compression or is it just some sort of pre-gain drive thi...

Re: poorly MKS70 - not sure what's up with it, MIDI fault?

My genius dad found the fault in the end and fixed it! want to know what it was? one chip! one chip that needed replacing on board B. a 1 of 6 chip which was: BU40516 409 307 no idea what it does but it's a little 16 leg jobby.

There was a picture of it on showing the version so I though, yeah this should ok. Had it for a week and it sounds a bit 'circuit bent' without actually being ...

I bet it's just filled with air and not electronics becau...

which is the best roland JX to get?

I really want the mks70 because it looks like one of the big daddies, is it worth having in 2020 for my synth pallet or is it a bit over kill and all I need is the JX8P I like strings I don't want a juno strings sound though but something else. not sure. Problem is that mks70, the prices be getting ...
