try approximating one of your previously existing decent leads on the JP8;
perhaps there are certain techniques you are used to from your own synths
that you've yet to try on the 8.
Also, so you can hear what kinds of lead the 8 is capable of, try digging up

a Devo tune called "Theme from 'Doctor Detroit'". This was a dumb 80s flick

w/Dan Ackroyd and Howard Hesseman. There's a lead line that sounds a lot
like a lap steel guitar which is reputedly Mark Mothersbough twiddling that
left hand controller section. Never mind these italics, I don't know how
that happened. Also, most of Devo's NEW TRADITIONALISTS was done on JP8 and

Moog Source, so there's some other (admittedly dated) points of reference.
