No No No. The MKS80 has Jupiter 6 voice boards. It is nothing like a
Jupiter 8 even though they have the same number of voices. Early MKS80s
have CEM3340s for oscillators just like JP6s, and later MKS80s have Roland
oscillators. That being said I think a rev4 is much more suitable for
punchy bass than the rev5. You just can't go wrong with 3340s for bass
sounds. (okay, so discrete is better, but lets not go there)
