After spending some quality time with my P5, i decided i just couldnt do it. Yeah, the chroma sounds cool, exotic and rare but i've never really even thought about getting one, so i chose to stick with what i know. And nothing else he had to even out his end of the trade really appealed to me. Heath...

ok, so he's countered to throw in another piece of kit and/or some cash along with the JP6 but would like to 'keep it reasonable' But what's reasonable? here's a couple of things i 'might' be interested from his list and the price he's asking if selling: a korg mono/poly (900.00) a korg radias (900....

carbon-
really? the europa'd J6's i've seen lately have been going for 1500.00 - 1900.00 usd.

what would a midi'd P5 go for?
i wont say how much i paid for mine 2 years ago but the p5 and servicing it and adding midi was less than that..

hmm..

should i trade my midi'd Prophet 5..

.. for a europa upgraded Jupiter 6?

it would be a straight trade.
i've had the P5 for a couple of years and it's never really inspired me.
i fear i may be getting redundant given the other rolands in my rig but i DO love that roland sound..

just wondering others opinions on this trade..

well it aint the sh2.. I recalled the Jupiter 8 has cv/gate outputs so i tested it with the sh2 and it works fine.. so it has to be the pro solo altho i dont have another synth to test it on.. the only difference is that with the pro-solo, I'm using mono 1/4" to 1/8" adaptors for the cables but that...

Sounds exactly what my OB8 sounded like when I got it about a year ago. Completely on the other coast but Greg Montalbano/Analog Synth Service in Oakland CA fixed mine up in no time for not much $. He's a great guy. But he's only an hour and a half from me...

Mind if I asked how much you paid?

Current gear in order of acquisition: Juno 60 - Had a 106 too. I don't have the 106 any more. Immediately easy to use and get the sound you're after. If you're after 'the Juno' sound Emax II - B I G. All functions are on it's face so it's easy to get to know CZ 101 - cute & portable, but I don't rea...

Thanks everyone. It was the drivers.
I got the latest-greatest from M-Audio's site and with an install and a reboot I have 8 midi ports.

Yeah I was wondering if I should have NOT installed them again. I thought of that right after I did it. I'll check M-audio for the drivers and install the latest set. It did tell me one time that it couldn't find a certain file.. If you can believe this, I'm typing this as my MEK lies in the studio....

Thanks Tallow :wink: WDW: I intentionally bought the same midiman 4x4 to avoid issues like this, so this is really frustrating. I plugged it in, it asked for driivers, I put in the cd from mine (the second one I got from ebay and didn't come with anything but the interface..) Cubase shows them all a...

No, the second one is in addition to the first one. I needed more midi ports and your supposed to be able to add units to expand. When I only used one, it listed USB A-in, USB A-out, USB B-in, USB B-out, etc. When I added the second unit, it now shows all 8 ports calling them USB A1-in, USB A1-out a...
