dag namit... I'm gonna be kicking myself about this one for a while. I was just looking at this Roland JX-3P, it's at a music store in KC, I was about to ask hotrod to take a look at it for me... oops, too slow. someone offered them $150 and they took it! Shocked ! damnit! I was gonna offer $200! Mad

Couple weeks ago, I almost dropped the hammer on one of these for $350 including the PG-200.
Choked and now it's gone, so I feel ya.

That Olo Garb vid just twists the blade in the wound. So much potential!

yeah it is like the juno's unloved sibling. $350 with the pg200 would be sweet since the pg200 often goes for that much alone.

that guy makes some great videos. I especially like 3:45, 4:50 and the part at 6:something where he plays the thing into the sequencer and then plays along to it. the fact that this has a sequencer makes it an even more ridiculous deal. how many other $150 - $250 synths (analog, early digital or hybrid) are there that sound this cool and have a sequencer?

I'll ask the owner if he's interested in selling if you're interested. He doesn't use it much, hence the long-term loan, but it has sentimental value i think.

foiled again... there was a JX-8P at the rockville, md Guitar Center for $150. called them yesterday, guy put it on "hold" for me. my sister went in today to pick it up and... oh they sold it this morning. Confused

really??? come on.

oh well, JX-8P sucks anyway, the JX-3P is better, people only like it because it has velocity and aftertouch. for all practical purposes my JV-880 can do the same sounds and more.

that's right kids, I've found that what I've needed has been right here all along. I just got a little yamaha sequencer so I can do the cool stuff like in that video up top and I'm calling the search off.

ok, will do! I started to record a little bit of a demo of the JV-880 but it's only very cursory as I haven't fully explored programming it yet. I really wonder if it bases some of it's waveforms on the JX-8P though because it sounds curiously similar. or maybe that's just the "roland sound" for ya.




I did record a short demo of the yamaha FB-01 I sold to puplehaze19x: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRmN5Gs2yu8
