Roland JX-8P or Jupiter-8? And why? | Studio time (faux live stream)

video by Espen Kraft

"Roland Jupiter-8 and JX-8P. Two very different synthesizers.
If you take away the price, cult-status and looks of the Jup-8, and THEN compare it to the 8P. Which one would you rather have? Or if I put it like this, if you had BOTH, would you always use just ONE, and why?
If I had a better broadband connection I would do the occasional (or maybe even more than that) live stream and this is how it would be, me fleshing out new ideas by hooking up a couple of synths, and a sequencer and just keep going for an hour or two. If I'm doing non-pop, sound design, paid gigs for event music or other types of music, I often sit and just play/design quite random sounds and motifs.
Today I used the Jupiter-8 and the JX-8P and a MSQ-700 sequencer on occasion. Some of the ideas that emerged will become larger pieces."
