"name calling"... promptly proceeds to name calling

explain again the fault of the system-8 without sounding like a jaded arsehole. it doesn't define a generation or something? well, i doubt it, but it's best we actually wait and see what impact it has, since we can't see into the future...

overpriced, under specced? how so. the (8 voice) JP-8000 was the same price back when, without a LOT of the features. the other comparison would be a VA nord. again, similar price, but nowhere near the features or functionality of the S-8. the nord has more voices i believe, but i don't hear anyone complaining the jupiter-8 doesn't have enough voices. remember this is modeled on actual synths, it isn't some no holds barred digital poly.

system-8 is a solid, feature packed synth. it can sound digital or analogue. the reaction from experienced synth players who have actually gotten their mitts on it has been very positive.

it trades on past glories. and that's exactly what the people who buy it are looking for. if i'm a fool, what does that make the chumps shelling out 10 grand for a 30 year old synth?

Informed collectors making a choice based on quality.

The opposite of that is somebody shelling out too much money for something they don't know how to use based on flashing lights and Instagram potential.

You'll learn son, one day.

flashing lights? instagram?! wtf are you talking about gramps? fucking dementia kicking in i think.

btw, great argument. valid counter points.

if i was born 10 years ago, i'd have gotten a JP-8000. unfortunately i wasn't (apologies) so i am getting a system-8. same price, way more capable.

the supersaw trance revolution has been and gone. nothing i can do about that either. it isn't relevant to me buying this synth though.

It's like a self-fulfilling prophecy in this case, really.

this fucking thing sounds unreal

dialing in trippy intergalactic space sounds is ultra satisfying. blows every other synth i've even touched clean out the water.

no expert, but it does sound analogue. pretty sure the reviews will testify to that when they roll in.

I would never ever get this, the system 1 was enough of a waste, if you want new digital external piece of kit, you have two options, Virus or Nordlead. I use the ultanova only cause it has Coax Spidf out.


Funny enough is that Roland mentions that the plug out version which 189$ is same exact quality as the hardware unit.

Last time getting any of my money.

Wait, say it can't be true?

You bought something then realized afterwards it was a mistake and then sold it for a loss?

Well at least you'll never do that again, eh?

I had one for a while and it was a really cool synth! I replaced it with a Nord Rack 4 after I finished our album because I got bored with it (as I always do with analog synths), but still a really fun synth.

Well we went to a music shop Friday and my bets mate and I came away deflated, the DSI stuff and indeed everything else sounded a bit too clinical and pristine for current needs.

Tempted to wait for Deep Mind but we think this too will sound too pristine having lots of semi analog components and stabilisers under the bonnet.

Thinking to get an Analog Solutions Nyborg instead, which comes with choice of either Moog or the SEM filter.

Mmm


We were mind-blown by the current choice of digital synths on offer - we went in one room full of a load of Roland options - really confusing even for the staff there and similar with Korg - these ranges of seemingly quite similar synths.

Then there were some Yamaha Motifs etc etc there.

Honestly if I was in the market for another digital hardware synth I think I would just go with Nord as they at least have an understandable well position range of products IMO
