Re: im in love with my JX8P

J. I'd like to try the BCR2000 hookup people have mentioned, but I don't think the editing is THAT bad - although I wouldn't try too much in real time that way. I tried the PG800 emulator software but the install was in German and I think it didn't like Windows Vista, no luck.[/quote My main point ...

Get the editor, import the sysex, look at the screen, rebuild patches. No USB MIDI interface required.

Great idea. Thanks.

Re: New patches for Roland JX-8P !

Hi D-collector,
Any chance at sending screen shots of the patches? I'm one of the few people that had never bothered getting a midi interface to download sysex. I'd love to use some of these sounds.

Re: Scans of Patches from Roland User Group (late 80s/early 90s)

Thanks for scanning all these sounds! I still remember having a bunch of the RUG mags when I owned a D50. I was always bummed they didn't have patches for the Jupiter 6, I tried adapting the MKS 80 ones with minimal success. It would also suck to program the long D50 patches and the end sound not be...

Thanks for the scans. I just picked up a JX8P and I needed some new patches. God bless you!

Re: If analog synths were being produced today...

Synthesizers were part of a burgeoning, exploding technology during the 60's, 70's, early 80's. Everyone was using them and everyone had to have one at the time. Frickin' Jackson Brown and Hall and Oats were using them as much as Numan and League. It reached it's zenith, the true believer's stayed (...

Re: If analog synths were being produced today...

Based on everything I've read this is the gest of what this guy is asking: Have Korg/Roland/Yamaha remanufacture the synths of their supposed "analog glory days" ala the MS20/Jupiter 8/Juno 60 etc... utilizing todays technology to make them cheaper and more reliable. The argument being: if guitar co...

Isn't the best synth the one we cannot afford or are saving up for or cannot find used? :)

Re: Dumbest thing you've ever heard someone say about synths

And most of the chord progressions date back to at least Blues, and the arpeggio sequences date back to middle ages minstrel type playing... next point? I agree. All genres of music borrow and steal from each other and find their origins in earlier forms of music. There is nothing new under the sun...
