Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Roland Jupiter-X
« Last post by stargazer on Today at 10:35:13 AM »
I see, I am in good Roland company here. I wrote my last album on the JD800 in summer 2017 and fall 2018. And yes this was very much being one with the instrument. I built sounds from scratch and it was wonderful.
Since summer 2016 I also have the XV-88 that is wonderful too. I love the 88 keys and it brought me forward in composition and chords. I am very much one with my XV too.
But my plans for buying the new JupiterX are delayed. My beloved male cat died two days ago by a heart attack, and I am devastated. He was my partner in crime, and he often sat on my piano stool with me while I was playing. I will miss him forever....

I was wondering what had happened to your JD 800, you had such a personal relationship with it.( You became "one" when you played it) ;)
I used to be a big fan of Roland, their JX8P was the first synth I bought when it came out all those years ago, now I am more of a Waldorf and Access person :)

Yes currently not much chance of getting to try anything out in person at the moment, with the current situation, and as long as we all stay safe, and however long that is for, that is the most important thing at this moment.
Take care.

I do actually want to buy one. It comes out in May and preorders are possible.

Now that we have the pandemic there will be no possibility to test the sound live in the music store.

But I have nearly 10 years of experience with the original Roland sounds. I know how I want it to sound.

So I think the Jupiter-X has wonderful pads and layered sounds and possibilities, and it has all the faders and knobs that I love on my JD-800.

The keyboard main contact is damaged on my JD-800, I cant play it anymore until we find a way to repair that.

I would love to get the Jupiter-X for all that reasons but it is simply a decision to be made.

I keep you updated David :)
