I just went the route of 4 integra 7 units... stereo effects... for me it works better and has more memory!! I can go total retro or layer for new sounds!! and I can use the ipad to edit fast!! The JX8P is in great shape. She sounds lovely and the strings and analog digital type sounds are amazing. ...
