Subject: [AH] ehhhhhhhh...guys ?

hi there,
well like i said i got my jupiter 8 yesterday and i've been fiddling with it
quite a bit, the Bb5 key is suddenly working again (which doesnt mean its
fixed, rather it can fail again at any given time probably when its most
unconvenient) but i've got a question.
is it me or is the jup8 not all its said to be. now dont get me wrong i
bought it cheap and was planning to sell it to make a buck to put in my
"cs-80 savings account", i didnt expect anything in particular but after
cheking the internet and seeing al the hype i got hyped myself too. anywyz,
i love the strings, cross mod is cool too and it can make some huge sounds
too, good enough.
but i cant seem to produce a decent lead, and when im programming i seem to
run into the same sounds pretty often even though im trying all kinds of
different modulations.
what am i doing wrong.?? is the jup8 limited to a certain spectrum or am i
beeing a dork, i know my way around a z1 pretty ok, so i dont think i lack
imagination when it comes down to trying new ways of making noise. any
ideas ?
