I know this has been bandied about. . . maybe too much. But this question
is giving me an ulcer. I'm inbetween ordering an mks-80 or a jp8. I've
read the archive. . . and I'm not convinced that people liking one over
the other are fully informed. This makes sense. . . what person in their
right mind own both at the same time? But that's what I'm hoping for:
somebody who knows both synths very well. I have questions about envelope
speed, midi-lag, "warmth", "fizziness," "fuzziness," "buzziness,"
"bloopabiity," distortion, bass repsonse, midrange, etc. Maybe a
comparison of "standard" sounds: ie, square wave bass, pulsewidth lead,
sawtooth bass, string sounds, etc.

If you feel, and perhaps rightly so, this is too repetitive for the list,
please reply to my private email account: "rrooyyccee@...".
Thanks in advance, and sorry to bore you with this topic.


P.s.: I just got my peavey pc1600 and it's a real studio saver.
