JX-8P noise issue

Post by mharris80 » Tue Nov 16, 2010 3:28 am

On my JX-8P, I'm getting some rather weird/nasty distortion in the highest octave. It seems to present itself mostly when playing more than one note at a time. This isn't really an issue anywhere else on the board, just in the last 12-13 keys or so. Any ideas as to what may be causing this? Thanks.

It's normal, mine makes it too. The inbuild chorus is noisy and crackly on high notes.

I've also heard several 8Ps make noise when you wiggle the LMH switch on the back. Might be a different noise than you're talking about though.
