Hello, guys!
Please, help me to clarify what synth is better for lush and deep pad sound - Roland Jx8p or Elka ek-22, if you had any experience with them or even if you heard something about.
I will glad to hear any suggestions

I haven't had a 3P but I briefly owned an EK-22. Dark 80s sound for good horror strings and whatnot. A bit thin. I thought it was redundant since I have a Poly-800. And it's built like c**p. Very flexible (digital) mod matrix. A lot of people like their JX3P's though. Just from demos, I think the Roland is a superior machine. I wouldn't necessarily say the EK is lush. Dark perhaps, but not lush.

My pet peave against my JX-8P is that the audio is quite low compared to my JX-3Ps and Waldord Blofelds.
It will be sold for its crime of low ouput, just like a DW-6000, low compared to my benchmark synths.
