The hold button(s) is no magic... it simply holds the key you press, just
like when you physically press a key. The sound level is of course
determined by the substain level of the envelope.

Again, nothing special about it but could be of use (?) if you use it in
arpeggio mode. I mainly us it when I calibrate the signal levels since my
JP8 is "long" way from my mixer ;-O

I don´t have the manual in front of me (can´t find it) but it´s not much
interesting at all... It´s _much_ more interesting searching the AH
archieves for Jupiter-8... all the nice things about this synth has been
posted... nice sound(s), fantastic output section (balanced xlr outputs
which can be used togethr with the unbalanced outputs for nice stereo
picture/routing). When you install the _Encore Electronics_ midi kit, the
synth transforms into a killer midi synth with monster sound.

The best sounding poly synth ever in my opinion.
