You really need to give a budget before anyone can give you good recommendations. Anyway, if you're a Mac user, you might consider a Metric Halo MIO 2882 or ULN2. Excellent quality conversion for a decent price IMHO.

It should work just fine on US voltages with no transformer. My Japanese XP-50 has been here for over 10 years with no problems at all. In fact, if you actually look at the voltage levels from commercial power over time you will notice that it can fluctuate quite a lot, often dropping down to 100 or...

JP-8000? No aftertouch, though. If you could find a Supernova II keyboard for around that price, that would be a good way to go. I don't know what they fetch these days, but they used to be considerably more expensive.

Well, the problem is that A) I need it to be a controller as well (that rules out synths with no midi, no velocity sensitivity, ect.), and B) Budget. If I could afford an andromeda, it would be a no brainer, as it would also give me analog synthesis, something I can't really get in software... Plus...

I use hardware almost exclusively and I haven't bought any soft synths separately, but I do have Logic Pro and must say that Sculpture is very cool.

Where in Japan are you going? I'm up in Misawa, which is a long way from Tokyo, but can help you a little with places to look for. Second hand stores are generically referred to as "Recycle Shops." and they're all over the place except inner Tokyo - rent's too expensive. There are many on the outsk...

Well, for me the best thing about the LP (besides the sound) is its interface. It simply begs to be played, and is extremely easy to work with. If you didn't care for the interface, I guess it's not for you 8)

I don't think you will be disappointed with that setup. The LP is a great little synth, and so easy to play and interact with. It's a lot of fun. I don't have an Andromeda, but my LPTE does complement my other analog polys (PEK & 2 Junos) nicely.
