therealvicz Posted July 25, 2013 Share Posted July 25, 2013 I have had my JP50 for about 9 months but I don't do gigs these days just use it for messing about in my home studio. I part ex'd it for my Korg M3 since I do all my sequencing and sampling on my mac now, but sometimes I wish I'd coughed up the extra £1k for a JP80 just for the sake of it. IMHO good points: Sound quality, number and variety of sounds, key action, build quality, portability. Bad points: Oddball sound architecture, desperately needs a librarian, iPad app limited in what it can do, can't drive the percussion with the arps (so what use is it?) no easy control over arps, can't play midi files. Still, enjoy playing it and will be keeping it for a while. Great pianos, many organ presets and loads of tweakability though limited real time control. The keys are slightly small but the action and feel are excellent. Many of the synth presets are named after older Roland synths, so if you know what 'JP6 saw lead' sounds like this could be useful to you otherwise there are so many sound presets auditioning them can be a pain.
