and what´s that all about anyway? $450AU is a bloody steal for a JP4, which
in my humble opinion has a lot more character than a lot of the other more
pricey Rolands (Juno106, JX8P, JP6 etc). Limited as it may be the JP4 always
sounds good without even trying. A very, very underrated synth. What it
lacks in oscillator power and to an extent modulationwise it compensates by
having ∗that∗ filter and chorusing.
There are evidently a whole bunch of synthesists out there that should have
their hearing checked.
