Elhardt, I completely _agree_ with all your words... The VA´s compared in...
(thisi is important) _sound_ is _very_ close today... also the controls are
the same (knobs/sliders)... Still I will keep my Jupiter-8 because it _is_ a
killer synth and do sound very special to me.

I do think it will be a better sounding VA JP-8 in a few years than the JP-8
itself... They are going the right direction.

BTW: filter sweeps?... have a listen to _most_ trance stuff made today...
mostly have the kind of filter sweep I like and most of it is done VA.
