Ach, it's fine. An totally reasonable assumption of course.clusterchord wrote:sorry, i should have pointed out - i was talking about JD-990. it has all this structures thing, and it is more flexible than in D-50. i actually never had JD-800, asumed i had structures like 990. oh well..
The JD-990 is actually a LOT more advanced than the JD-800 as you now have gathered. This is probably why it commands prices almost as high as the 800 from time to time. And there's that Vintage Sounds expansion that's supposed to be excellent too.
I myself have no idea why the JD-800 wasn't as fully featured as the 990 - my only guess is that there wouldn't be enough space on the panel for the extra features and maybe Roland wanted to avoid menu diving as much as possible on the 800?
On that note though, one advantage the 800 has over the D-50 is a multimode filter. That's certainly handy.
