I think where the Nord products, Waldorf products, and to a degree the
JP-8000/8080 get a bum rap is that people want to try and make them sound
like old synths when they really have strong personalities of their own. I
think it ok to try and duplicate those sounds but when you experiment with
them they can do you can come up with some nice sounds.
A lot of people complain about the zip effect or the digital sound of the
JP-8000 the only problem I had with the JP-8000 was that short keyboard, but
my tracks that have JP-8000 on them were always layered with other synths so
I would get smoother sweeps.
