ive got an ms-2000 and i love it.

does the jp have audio inputs?
how much polyphony does it have? the ms only has like 4 notes, but its usually all i need....

ive always heard the jp is great for trance sounds....

Wow thanks for the responses guys...

So does the JP8000 have a vocoder then?
's a Tough call, wish I could get both.

I make lots of vocal-based music, I'm after boomy bass and ambient sounds. Have a listen to some older stuff if you fancy at www.myspace.com/sunyatamusic
'Perma' is probably the most representative of what I make, but it was made before I really got into synths.

Cheers!

the rackmount version (jp-8080) has a vocoder and more polyphony and a distortion effect

JP8000 all the way

corking synth. Those roland convertors rock hard.

The ms2000... nah not my thing but then i never liked any of the korg VA stuff.. their digital synths are another thing altogether and the mono/poly is an awesome bit of kit...

Roland for VA loveliness.. Korg for digital fun!

IMO of course.

8000 is obviously a much higher number than 2000, so it must be 4x as good.

However, that goodness comes with a price; sheer size. JP is the abbreviation for Japan, whereas MS is the modern abbreviated title for a unmarried woman. I would rather have a modern single woman in my studio than all of Japan, thank you very much... It's too small for an entire nation-state.

Besides, Korg sounds like a slang term for constipation. "gah, I've been all Korged up for the last five days, I'm ready to burst!"

Roland is a dude's name, and like I said before, I would rather play with a woman than a man.

So, you should try to find a Ms Korland 8000 - It's the best compromise.

but does it have audio inputs? running an audio line in and through the arpeggiator, delay, and filters is a deal breaker for me....
