Almost an excuse for a trip to Jolly Old for me :lol:

C'mon Arpy, go get it! You've been hemming and hawing over a synth for a long, long time!

Yes, I know I should, but diplomatically, regarding my partner, it’s a bit tricky,
boxes come in this house and no questions are asked, but a trip like this is pretty obvious, if you know the guy, I could get him to post it, but I’m not really happy with that.

Having said that, I wouldn't rule out grabbing one for myself if the price was right.

My friend is having a gear-shuffle and gave me first refusal on the Jupiter X today. Turns out the price was right. Picking it up in a couple of hours :tongue:

I'll be interested to hear how you get on with it. I had one here for a short while and it didn't gel with me - and my S8 sounded better as a (what I was looking for, TBH) JP8-alike.

But it's a powerful beast if you have the patience to work through that OS. The new JD-800 model should be a good 'un.

It's certainly not the friendliest or most intuituive synth to navigate and I've not had time to give it any proper attention yet but I do like the way it sounds (despite a large number of 'orrible presets!) and I think it's got a lot of potential, especially in a mix.

I'll add some thoughts in due course once I've got to know it a bit better and actually used it for something, which is probably going to be quite soon as there are two sounds in there I stumbled across which, with a bit of tweaking, are exactly the sort of thing I need for an up-coming track.

This is interesting, originally I was interested in the Jupiter XM, simply because it's small, has great samples and is a synthesiser!
I wouldn’t be buying it just for the synthesis, and that applies to the X as well, I’d be interested in what you think of this when you get into it more.
