Ive been wondering about the diferance in price of the jupiter 8 and the 6.
I realize they have different features, but i thought for the most part they
sounded pretty similar, the 8 being "lusher". Why is the jupiter 6 about 1/3
the price? Is it the sound, or is it 1/3 as rare, or a combo of the 2, or
its occult status? Whats up? On that note, what are the main sound
differences of the jupiter 6 and 8, Ive been looking at the 6 more because
it has dual filters and midi, and its gobs cheaper.....
