I don't think you are imagining what you are noticing.
The jp8 doesn't cover every sound all that well, and
I actually find myself using the jp6 a bit more.
"Lead" probably means different things to different
people. . . but I do notice that for monophonic parts,
many monosynths in general seem to do a little better
than the jp8.

These may be empty suggestions but keeping the
resonance low, using the 12dB filter, using unison
with a very good analogue chorus, and using tube
saturation bring out some of the 8's strengths. I
find the juptier 8's strength doesn't really lie in
its flexibility, but in the overall character of its
sounds, which you may or may not like.
