hi LJ

i have the 12-bit version and have not experienced any
problem/instability with tuning. anyway, it is very
easy to tune these synths by pressing the tune button
- which takes about 3 seconds. mine is a 130000 serial
numbered one.

the sound from a jupiter 8 is unbelievable. you wont
regret getting one - they are worth every penny. i
spent a fortune on mine too.

i have not used a 14-bit version so i cant compare. i
dont believe they would be fatter in any way but, i
could be wrong. how do you get any fatter?

the one i have has midi retrofit and a flight case. i
may consider selling it as i have run out of room in
my home studio. would you be interested?

i live in australia though which may be a problem when
it comes to cost of shipping.

hmm. do i really want to part with my beloved jupiter
